“Travel while you’re young and able. Don’t worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be.” – This quote really rings home. Life is too short to not travel and the world is too large to not want to travel. We ought to spend our money on experiences such as travel instead of things such as a new car.

Sailing in Greece will ruin your life. You will never want to leave the crystal clear waters, the soothing gentle rocking of the boat or feasting on freshly-caught seafood. We all know the better the holiday, the harder it is to transition back to reality – most of us dread returning to our nine to fiver.
Packing the right things can really make or break a trip and we want to make yours. Here we’ve compiled a list of things to throw in when you’re packing for Greek island hopping:
Going to Greek islands, there is no way you will miss Mykonos and Santorini, and should you not! The Mediterranean atmosphere never leaves you alone, either when you are chilling by the sea side, partying by beach clubs or relaxing in the pool sipping a cocktail. Incredible food, breath-taking view and the perfect summer holiday! Here is how I made my Greece tour an ideal holiday.
Discovering Mykonos and Santorini
The Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini has spread their fame to many corners of the world, and continue to receive more and more attention as years pass. On the Best of Greece tour by Travel Talk, I had crazy fun and precious memories in many islands, but these 2 stole the crown!
Greece is one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. In part, this is due to its remarkable history and its role as one of the leading cultures of the ancient world. However, another reason that Greece ranks highly on the bucket list of many an avid traveller is its eclectic, picture-postcard pretty islands.
There are, in total, 6000 islands that belong to Greece, though only 227 of those are inhabited; and of those, only 78 have a population of over 100 people.

When conjuring up images of the Greek islands, most picture sun-kissed days spent lying on the white sandy beaches and swimming in the refreshing sapphire sea with the quintessentially Greek white-stucco buildings in the background; then warm Mediterranean nights spent sipping on cocktails while watching the lights bounce off the water and the boats gently rocking in the harbour, or partying all night in a club until you can watch the sun reappear over the horizon… And they wouldn’t be far wrong.
With over 2,900 islands and islets, 1,400 beaches and endless stretches of coastline framed by the crystal clear ocean, to sail Greece seems to be the natural choice to explore all of this, and have a true holiday of holidays.
The islands that form the Cyclades are typically the first choice of charterers who sail Greece. These islands sit in the centre of the Aegean and get their name from the Greek word ‘kyklos’ meaning “circle” as the islands form a circle around Delos island, which hosted the ancient city that was the region’s centre of commerce. This collection of islands varies from the lively waterfront towns and nightlife of Mykonos and Ios, to the quaint charm of Páros and vistas of Santorini. Read more…
