My generous family bought me a holiday in Skyros for my 70th birthday. It’s no ordinary holiday as you can see. It involves yoga, writing, music and generally having a good time. I hope.
On Saturday I take an Aer Lingus flight to London Heathrow and from there travel by Aegean Airlines to Athens. I will stay in a hotel overnight and next morning we will be picked up by bus and transported via a ferry to the island of Skyros. It takes about five hours to get there from the mainland.
Apparently, Rupert Brooke is buried on a remote part of the island.
I look forward to telling you about the journey and all my adventures as I intend to find an internet cafe and try to blog every day. Kind of like a cyber postcard but in the meantime ……
