I've mentioned before, I'm a
goer and a doer. I'll be travelling as long as my legs will carry me.
used to take me to England and to South-east Asia and Indonesia, then I
fascinated with the Middle East, travelling through Egypt, Syria and
enticed me. Dear friends acquainted me with Israel, a trip I will
remember with great affection, others led me to Canada, and relatives
US. I've found Fiji, Vanuatu, Hawaii, and dear New Zealand. Of course,
has my roots, and therefore my heart. Then there was Paris, Rome and
trips now take me through Dubai and the UAE... to Greece which draws me
as if I
lived there in a past life…
Over many years I
sought adventure, culture and new horizons in Greece, depending on the
the moment and the temper of the Gods. I've climbed, swum, hiked and
nothing successfully, in very picturesque surroundings and with lovely
people. Greece is not a pretty country - rather it's stunning and
sometimes awesome, and always fascinating. It's rugged, with some
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 gray mountains...
are my Books on Greece.
