Unpacking for Greece: Travel in a Land of Fortresses, Fables, Ferries and Feta
Join Sally as she embarks on a solo journey across the magnificent Greek mainland and islands.
When Sally sets out for Europe with her mother's 1978 travel diary in her pocket, she is searching for the wanderlust she lost in a devastating overseas road accident.
As she ventures into the heart of the Mediterranean - wandering volatile landscapes, exploring historical sites, pairing books with places and savouring the tastes of Greece - she finds it is possible for a clumsy, out-of-shape woman on a budget to experience a life-changing journey.
In a story told with warmth, humour and a fascination with Greece's natural and cultural heritage, Sally connects with her past, overcomes her fears and falls in love with life again, one olive at a time.
Book One in the 'Packing for Greece' series travels to Athens and Meteora on the mainland; Monemvasia, Sparta and Methana on the Peloponnese Peninsula; and the islands of Santorini and Rhodes.
