Let me start by saying that this trip was relatively short notice. Truth is, we had a big summer holiday planned to the Dominican Republic but when it came to paying for it, we couldn’t afford it. So we cut back, transferring the deposit we had already paid to a holiday in Lefkas, a cheaper alternative. Cheaper in cost but no less full of beauty, culture and fun.
Inadvertently, we had booked a week on an island often referred to as the Caribbean of the Ionians, mainly due to the exquisite blue waters that surround it. The waters were indeed crystal clear and some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Literally a sea of blues, every shade, dappled in sunlight, making a twinkle no filter could create. Lefkas (or Lefkada) has a unique landscape of rock face and luscious greenery, interspersed with spear-shaped cypress trees. The mix of green and blue make it a place holiday dreams are made of.
