Aug 26, 2009 - Travel to Greece and Mykonos

Today was to be a travel day so naturally we were up early. Our shuttle arrived at 7:30 to take us to the port. Here we went through the customs process and boarded our large water taxi to take us to the first of our Greek Islands. We are starting to get used to the feelings when we leave one place to travel to the next. Invariable there is a slight sadness at leaving what has become familiar and saying good-bye to some of the people we have met. This is however mixed with the excitement of going to a new place, seeing new things, and...

Sep 20, 2008 - Samos Island, Greece

Ravi -- The thing that infuriated me most about attempting to plan our time in the Greek Isles is that it is impossible to discern the ferry schedule ahead of time. Most of the websites don’t work, and those that do were completely useless in terms of when boats run from island to island! In fact, we had originally planned to enter Greece from Turkey’s Mediterranean coastal city of Bodrum, into the island of Rhodes. However, the ferry schedule seemed extremely sketchy, as was the ongoing ferries to the rest of the Greek Islands. Samos...

May 26, 2008 - Greece - Samos

Monday 26th We had to wake up early for our transfer to the harbour to catch our ferry to Samos. Samos is a small Greek Island, just off the coast of Turkey. We had to clear immigration, because of course we were leaving and entering another country. It was strange doing it at a Port rather than an airport! Our 8.30 a.m ferry to Samos, ended up being a 9:30 am ferry, after it took ages to clear immigration. It took about 2 hours to get to Samos on a small tug boat! No luxurious yacht, catamaran or cruise liner for us. A tug boat. Well...

The Arnash Adventure

May 14, 2008 - Samos (Greek Islands) - Chilled out in Paradise.

The views coming into Samos were great. Typical of what I've seen of The Greek Islands in pictures. Lots of water and lots of houses perched upon the hill side. Very picturesque and warming. Once I got off the ferry I went to the tourist office and tried to book a ticket out to Santorini or Mykonos for the same day. The guy serving me was as camp as they come and very funny. He had all the mannerisms of someone doing there best to be as camp as they could, but he was serious. He ended telling me how much he disliked the place now and that...

Jun 29, 2007 - Samos

Samos is a lot like Chios - only a bit bigger. It's super hot - we heard from a very friendly tour-booking guy (who LOVED us and chatted us up forever because he loved our itinerary) that about 14 people died in Athens from the heat wave. We were also told by the same tour guide that the ferry to our next island only ran on Saturday, so we had to cut our trip to Samos one day short. Also, he informed us that the trip tp Turkey, while interesting, was super expensive and not something that we want to do in the heat. It would have cost us...
