Hydra Island - Go for coastal walks along cascading houses and mansions up and down the coastline, sip on freddo espressos or a cocktail or two in one of the many sea cliff cafes and restaurants, jump off rocks into the Med, and come up close and personal to the local dolphins. In the village, you will find winding, narrow paths, lit-up fishing tavernas covered with colourful bougainvilleas, and beautiful shops. This was the home of Leonard Cohen and many other famous poets, writers, and artists.

I started my holiday with three days in Athens. Usually, just a stopover before going to the islands, but Athens called me to stay. I met some fantastic people, traveled back in time to Antiquity, and immersed myself in ancient mythology and ancient herbal medicine while lingering amongst the plants and ancient ruins. Olive, bitter orange, bay laurel, carob, prickly pear, fig, mulberry, pine, oak, cypress, honeysuckle, dandelion, rosemary, basil, rose geranium, wild sage & thyme, and mountain tea (Sideritis plant genus) became my friends. I was bewitched!
