parking tickets, a forward invitation and the rest is history. Before coming to Ithaki, they spent time together in Israel and will be flipping a coin to see where they'll be heading next. Maybe we should keep them here. They're good fun and not bad to look at either.

Her roots are in Kioni in the north, but we caught up with her in Vathy at Odyssea Cafe. One of her loved performances was in the ABC drama GP, in which she played an overbearing Greek mother. a role far removed from her real life easy going personality.
Above and right - John and Rosalie are here from Bambury in the UK. Their connection to Ithaki is via their son Simon who married Jessica Levi whose parents have a house in Perahori and are regulars of the island.
The tangle of an Ithacan family tree.

Wed 8 June - Left - John and Charndra have been coming to Ithaki, either alone or with their family, for 30 years. They have a family home in
the hills over Kioni Bay in which they have seen Kioni turn from the small fishing village of the 70's into a thriving hub (at least during the summer months). John and Chandra watched their daughter Dimitra marry here and John also had his 60th Birthday in Kioni. They are settling in for a few months, taking trips to Prague and Ireland and who knows where else, before they head back to Perth, Australia.
Right - Brian is here from Northern Ireland, County Armagh. He's been caretaking Rhoda House for John and Chandra. This is the 2nd time he has sailed into Kioni but the
first time he has stayed on dry land.
