It was love at first sight. And more or less every summer I would travel to Greece, either alone or with a friend.
When I did travel to Asia (Indonesia and Thailand) around 1990-93, I would often miss Greece - the lovely dry climate, blue skys, clear blue water everywhere, and not at least, a friendly easygoing people, what always makes you feel welcome.
During the late 1970's and 1980's I visit Halkadiki in the north, the northern Sporades (Skiathos) and quite a few of the Cyklades, Corfu and Peloponnese i the west.
During a one month visit to Crete in 1992 - I passed by Paleochora. Since then I only go one place - Paleochora, which have become like my second home :-)
