Sat 15 July - Proud Grand mum Chandra, shows off her granddaughter Olympia. Looks like Chandra and husband John will be spending less time on Ithaca and more time in Perth Australia to get their fill of this little cutie.
Above - It's school holiday time in Switzerland, so Sonja packs up the kids and the car and heads straight for Ithaki. Sonja and family are on Ithaki each holiday period to spend time with partner Panos and their new stone house in Kioni.
Above - Luisella from Italy, joins her friend Georgia for another Ithacan Summer Holiday. Can you guess her favourite village? Yes, it's Kioni...but then why is she always seen at yefuri restaurant in Platrithia? Good question.
Left - David Soul and Helen Snell have spent the last week staying in Kioni. It could well have been a holiday to Cephalonia, except that their friend Doug, had stayed on both islands and suggested they try Ithaca for their holiday. They have fallen in love with the island. David and Helen agree that Ithaca has inspired the thought to change their lifestyle to a simpler way from what they have become accustomed to in London, where they both live and work. David has just finished recording a new EP and performing in a Play, and is now contemplating his next challenge. Who knows, it may have something to do with bringing music to Ithaki and the

years, and this is her 13th visit to Ithaca. Dennis Kallinikos, well known Greek singer, also residing in Melbourne, Australia, is Kaliopis brother. Her Ithacan roots are planted in Stavros, where many of Kaliopis relatives still live. This long serving school teacher is on Ithaca this time, for a longer run than usual, as Kaliopi takes her well deserved long service leave from her job.

Ithacas' harbors seem to be filling up with rather huge yachts. Some of them big enough for helicopters to land. Plush, spacious and very expensive. So who is coming to Ithaca these days?

Mon 17 July - Above - Alicia, John, Martin and Debbie are here from Bradford, Yorkshire. This family (but not John) has had a 13 year affair with Ithaki. They've even built a house in Perahori. The locals called Debbie and sister Judi, the ants, as each day they'd see them carry rocks and building stuff up the path from the road to their little house. John is Alicias boyfriend of 15 months and a singer/guitarist who is currently putting together a tour around the UK for his solo act.
Above - Dean Hewett is here overseeing his work of love, Irida Villas. This man loves Greece and particularly our little island of Ithaki. Find out more about Mr. Hewett at

Below - Jerome has his roots in Exoghi, so it's no wonder he would be found behind the make-shift bar for the Exoghi Panighiri. He usually lives in Athens, but in summer, Ithaki is his home.
Thu 20 July - Left - Tanya and Natasha Wolf with mother Dr. Nina Couvaras are on Ithaki for 2 weeks. With roots in Exoghi, this family have visited the island many times in the past.
