The first (and longest) stop of our island-hopping holiday on the Greek islands this summer, which painted our summer dreams with brilliant blue, was Folegandros. An island, personified by Greek Goddess Artemis.
Our initial plan was to visit Folegandros in June and Astypalea in July. But sometimes when a man makes plans, God (well… almost) makes them better! The final plan included five destinations: Folegandros, Milos, Serifos, Paros, and Astypalea.
When I first heard that there is a village, a few kilometers outside Chania, in Crete, without electricity, something that we take for granted in our Western culture, my curiosity swelled like a balloon!
