In early 2013 my partner Josh and I travelled to Greece for a holiday. We spent most of our time on the beautiful Greek island Skopelos, made famous by the ‘Mamma Mia’ movie, although we had not heard of it prior to choosing it as our destination. We wanted to immerse ourselves in everything Greek rather than the usual tourist thing that sees you being dragged through 10 countries in 4 days. All up we spent 16 days on Skopelos with a few days in Athens either side. It was off season and I think the Greeks on the island though we were mad because the weather was cold (not to us though) and there were no other tourists (bliss). We were constantly explaining that we were escaping 40C+ heat and getting away from people made us very happy. We had a magnificent time and Josh wrote the 1st draft of his third book ‘Dying to Know’. I called the trip our ‘Greek Odyssey’ and jotted down a diary of sorts, that I’m bravely calling a memoir, of some our experiences. I found it a couple of days ago and it brought back some wonderful memories that I thought you might like to read about.
