Going with the flow
Thur 11 Aug - More and more people are discovering Ithaki and falling in love with it. although here on the island, we think this is a busy time, for tourists having battled through ferry trips and Mykonos or Santorini, know what 'Really Busy' really means. Ithaca is still a place where a little solitude can be found...after the arrival at Piso Aetos. The small port is struggling to keep up with the traffic demands. Oh well, only a few more weeks and the island will be left for the locals and the goats, and after a couple of weeks relaxing off the Summer rush, the island will be reminiscing about the Summer gone and all who have visited during the season. As is usual on Ithaki, friendships are being formed and promises to return, made. Who's Here is a great place to remember the faces of Summer 2005 on Ithaca Greece.
