There is a magical quality to Greece - It’s a place where you can have a sudden overpowering feeling of belonging on God's earth, where you can discover self-worth and well-being.

Greece is not a pretty country - rather it’s stunning and at times awesome, and always fascinating. It’s rugged, with mountains so high the clouds stick to their shanks like skirts. From pallet-box blue seas, dry rocky islands rear up like dragon’s teeth. Tiny towns like spilt sugar cubes cling precariously, scatter across, spill down, or cower between grim grey mountains...

A warning - this book is not about cruise boats, group tours or pre-paid extravaganzas, but rather winging it with the locals and seeing the real Greece. I don’t stay in posh hotels, eat lavish meals or seek expensive entertainment. If you travel in the four-star jet-set brigade, this book is not for you.
