Who's here, who's doing what, who got too drunk to remember last night...

  Ithaca Greece Summer  
Michel, Luisa and Victoria from Spain

August 14th - Tony is straight off the ferry from doing the rounds of other Greek islands to the Anoghi Panighiri. He's wasting no time raging with his friend Costa Kamakamis who is also visiting Greece from Australia. Tony's family originally comes from Tripoli.

Friday 15th August - Marie is visiting her Greek roots from Melbourne, Australia. She's a Frikes Raftopoulos. Her tree spans the Ionian from Kythera to Ithaca. She admits she doesn't speak Greek, but had no problems learning the basics on her first day on the island as she settled into the Ithacan experience.


August 10th - Vagelis is in Kioni again this year, but this time on holiday. No bar work for this lad when it's this hot.

Michel, Louisa and Victoria had a wonderful time staying in the village of Lahos. They flew from Spain to Athens where they sailed a yacht around the Peleponese and up the Ionian to Ithaca.

A whirlwind 3 day visit to Ithaca for Sophia and Peter from Australia. Just in time to experience the earthquake and it's aftershocks before heading off again. An earthmoving vacation for these two. They did get to visit family in Stavros in between quake anxiety.


August 17th - Spiros is in Kioni for a week from Athens taking a break from his hectic work schedule. We caught up with him at Cemetery Beach in Kioni talking about ? Work.


August 18th - Andrew and Sohie from Surrey Hills, Australia have spent weeks traveling around Greece and the Greek islands and have ended up on Ithaca to catch up with friends. If these two had lived in Greece they may never have met. Andrews family roots are from thessalonika and Sophies' from Kalamata. Opposite ends of the country. We hope they have great time during their stay.

August 20th - (Above) Local Kolieri girl, Virginia, and her husband Manuele live in Milano, but are here on one of their regular visits to Ithaca. Manuele had been coming to Ithaca for many years before he met and married Virginia. They bring a little Milano style with them each time they come. (Right) Angelo and Alexandra. Once bitten, forever addicted. These two have also become regular visitors to the island. They come from Milano too. Unfortunately they all leave again on the 31st August.
