Sat 20 May - Left - The Irish come to Ithaca with their pot of Gold, well copper mostly, but who cares, it pays for the coffee. Jim O'Brien comes from Belgooly in County Cork and he's here visiting his friend Nicola who is a regular on
Ithaca over the past few Summers, working in Vathy as a Chef and hostess at Minimata.
L - R - Maureen, James, Michael and Denise just love Ithaca. They tell me they can't wipe the smiles off their faces, and that's always good to hear. This group is here from Nottingham shire in the UK.
Sun 21 May - Geff and Maureen are here from Derby UK. It's their second time on Ithaca and probably not their last. Last time on Ithaca they stayed at Nostos Hotel in Frikes, this year their holiday home is in the northern village of Kioni.
Left - Aki Vasilopoulos, the traveling man with a camera and an insatiable wander - lust is back on Ithaca. Looks like he has brought a finger back from his many months of travel to show his ithacan friends. Very impressive! Amazing what you can find when you travel to the far corners of the world looking for digital stimulation. Who will he give the finger too, I wonder
Above - L - R - Gerta, Uli, Gerhardt and Werner are here from Austria again. This family is almost local with the many trips they make to the island each year.

Well it's not their country of origin - L - R - Jeff is from the UK, Kathy from Malaysia/Australia and Lavonna and Bruce are from California USA. The common factor of this friendly group is that they all

Wed 24 May - "We are sailing. We are sailing.." L - R - Pierre, the nurse, Gerard the computer Scientist and Alain who gave it all up, sailed into Frikes last night and quickly got into the Ouzo. Now it's time for that sobering cafe.
Look Out!!! Incoming
Fri 26 May - Below - Pat and Cameron from Birmingham UK, are staying in Kioni at the Captains. They are not only regular visitors to the website, but veteran visitors to Ithaca. For the past 9 years, Pat visits a few times a year.
Thu 25 May - Below - John and Olive have a long relationship with iithaca, which seriously started in 1964, but for John it really started at birth. He was born on the island and is just one of the Ithacans from around the world whose story we hope to have soon.
Sun 28 May - Below - It's not often we meet someone from Finland, let alone a journalist covering the Finnish Eurovision entry and resulting winner, Lordi, but Ithaca is full of suprises. Lilian and partner Mike were in Greece for Eurovision, saw something about Ithaca in the Athens News, thought it looked nice, and here they are. We caught up with them at Chez Manu in Vathy.
Sat 27 May - The Big Escape - Below - Athens Lawyer Yiorgos and friend and banker, Roberto from Paris, meet on Ithaca for a 2 day whirlwind relaxation tour. The windy day yesterday didn't stop these two from enjoying a swim at Filiatro beach in the south of Ithaca, where they proclaim, was sheltered from the wind that battered the rest of the island.
We say goodbye to May, so turn the page and let's see what new faces June brings to Ithaca

Tue 31 Mar - Above - Keith(L) and Liz (R) from Yorkshire Uk, take their long time friend, Pano out of Kioni to Yiannis Taverna in Stavros. These two have been coming to Ithaki for 10 yrs
