The Greek Islands



Picture the purest, bluest blue you've ever seen. Whether it's the glorious Aegean Sea or the blue trim on white-washed houses, or a blue chair at a seaside taverna, the isles of Greece brim with brilliant blues.


We were frankly floored by the Greek islands we visited. Not only the natural wonder and the beaches, but also the delicious, simple food, the down-to-earth villagers, and of course the history. You could travel these islands all of your life and never get bored. That's how special they are.
