Walks and Words 2017

As well as the two themed walks – see walks, there are two other activities for Summer 2017


This is an evening for those who can’t or don’t want to walk so far but would like to enjoy the stories of the Island. This really is a stroll.

We meet in Raxi and after a really gentle walk around the church and to the mill, hearing stories of Ithaca we visit the traditional and very special mini market for more stories and a drink or two.

Walk is very gentle and no more than half an hour. If you don’t want to walk at all, we will meet you at the mini market.


Meet 6 p.m.

Price 15 euros.

Wednesday – HOME – Creative writing and Poetry

A wonderful morning with a two hour writing workshop. We stroll down on a shady forest path to the magical beach of Perovoli; a perfect place for mindfulness, contemplation, peace and inspiration.

Here in the company of ancient and modern poets and storytellers we explore the theme of Home with inspiring writing exercises to get your imagination flowing and pen moving on paper.

There will be time to share if you want or send in your writing for an anthology at a later date. There will be no critique, just a chance to write about Home in your style and your voice and have some fun playing with words, with the sound of the sea, drama of the mountains and call of the muses.

Bring a writing pad and pen and a picnic. We stay for lunch and you may decide to stay for the day before walking back up to Platrethia so bring book, hat, sun cream and swim wear.

Meet at Platrethia at 10. a.m.

Cost 20 euros

Maximum 6 people.
