October 2017

As fall begins, we take you on one last summer journey this month to the beautiful island of Aegina.  Even into the early days of October, the sun is shining and one can enjoy a warm cup of coffee in any of the charming outdoor cafes that line the beautiful port streets.

August/September 2017

As the end of summer nears, we take you to beautiful Paros and Antiparos, where you can relax, escape into beauty and take in the great history of these enchanting islands. From ancient ruins, fantastic Byzantine complexes, and people who are abundantly kind and welcoming, these two islands will steal your heart and keep you coming back to make more memories.

 
 

July 2017

Syros, located in the Cycladic islands, has a rich and long history, it’s a city of culture, innovation and diversity. One of the earliest references to the island was by the poet Homer a few thousand years ago! It’s culture has been influenced by the variety and diversity of its inhabitants – from the Venetians to various Greek islanders fleeing Ottoman oppression, it is truly unique amongst Greece’s 225+ inhabited islands!

June 2017

This year is not only Kazantazakis Year, but the Pancretan Association of America celebrates its 88th anniversary!  We are also very excited to include an interview with Vice Admiral Georgios Chraniotis, the Founder and President of the Nikos Sofialakis Center of Neoclassical Sculpture. Sofialakis, born in Crete, is one of the greatest classical sculptors of our time.
