Greek Island Hopping
This trip’s about forgetting the rat race with some proper, random adventure. There are dozens of Greek islands, all with a unique draw, all interconnected by a reliable network of boats. It’s that easy. Get a cheap flight to Athens then rock up early to Piraeus ferry port like Jack Sparrow in espadrilles to choose your vessel.
Want beaches and Vespas? Head to Naxos. Postcard views from a volcano? Santorini. Both seven hours by ferry, enough time to meet travellers on deck and get whooped at tavli (Greek backgammon – you can challenge anyone to a game) by an ouzo-charged 80-year-old.
