Here is our latest coming to you from Galaxidhi in the Gulf of Corinth. I hope you all realise and appreciate how hard we have to work to bring you these epistles whilst you are relaxing at home.
Trust this finds you all fit and well and enjoying life!
Cheers, Bruce & Lesley Tebbutt
Since the last time we wrote we have visited a few more Greek islands that we have not seen before. So many islands end in –os that they all start to merge in to one. We visited Ios then it was off to Kimolos where we walked up to the chora (old village). I don’t know about these Greeks. They built their villages on the highest point possible.
