A ripe tomato dipped in the sea. The musky scent of oregano and sage carried on the breeze. The faint jangle of goat bells. Peach nectar trickling down salty skin. The distant throb of an outboard engine, slipping over the horizon. These are the flavours, smells and sounds of Greece, a land of plenty, simplicity, and infinite variety. It’s easy to believe in myths and heroes here — The Greek Islands is its own, distinct world, with its own passionate followers.
