ATHENS TO SANTORINI
From antiquity to paradise

This book (ebook) gives you a look at how Greece, Athens and Santorini really are... not from a tourist's viewpoint, but from a Greek who was raised in Melbourne, Australia.

James Taris visted Greece for 2 months in 2001 and shares his daily travel diary with you in a fresh and easy-to-read fashion.

This book is a great help if you plan to visit Greece, Athens or Santorini. It prepares you for the otherwise unexpected. It is entertaining, informative and inspiring.


From the author

I returned to Greece after 28 years absence. And it was unrecogniseable! I share my daily experiences just as if it was my very first visit there.

What people are saying

"Love your Greek travel diary. I once spent many months there, mainly on the island of Moni which is off Aegina. I'd got on a boat to Crete but had to get off because I was so seasick, and ended up in a sort of nudist camp with just one other bloke and about 20 women. A great time." Phil Wiley - "All The Secrets Marketing and Free Publicity Newsletter" (Brisbane, Australia)

"Your Travel Diary - very well written and entertaining! Laughed a number of times ... I especially loved the entry about the tortoise pissing on you and the 3-card dealer..." Nanette (Melbourne, Australia)

"I have already read a bit of your Travel Diary and found it absolutely fascinating... It is true about not being able to appreciate your own home until you travel overseas.. I experienced that when I went to my own home land of Wales UK 8 years ago... I must admit though we didn't have so much grief over the water shortage as you experienced .. God I don't know if I could handle that!!" Wendy (Melbourne, Australia)
