Sat 13 Aug - From snow in Leongatha, Australia to 38 C in Stavros, Ithaca, in the space of 2 days. Above - Helga Baum is on Ithaca and in Greece generally, for the first time in her life, but it didn't take long for her to adapt to the life style, sipping a cool drink in Kioni on the bay with views that have her beaming ear to ear with pleasure.
Above - US artist Paul Leibow is holidaying on the island with his family, wife Marietta, daughter Vasiliki and 2 year old son, Josif. It's been 4 years since their last trip to the island. Between swimming and enjoying Ithaki with his children, Paul still manages to paint. His paints go with him, even to the beach, where he is again inspired to translate his feelings through a stroke of a brush.

not to Ithaki. The Big P has years of reputation to live down before it's safe for him to bring his new bride to the island. So northern Ithaki bids farewell to it's aging stud and wishes him well in love and marriage for the future. Now Junior. Behave yourself!
