The Escape Philosophy
Glistening crystals of light dance upon the azure water. Gnarled olive trees provide shade for the pristine sandy beaches. Enormous marble columns protrude into the sky - contemporary witnesses to ages long past.

Breathtaking mountain panoramas stretch magically over the broad countryside, a farmer on his donkey whistles happily on his way home. Then, suddenly, a plane, with engines roaring, prepares to land. Hundreds of tourists pour out of its belly. The dream disappears. But I step aboard my ‘magic carpet’ and immerse myself in the hidden Greece with all of its empty beaches and coastlines.

“We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails.” - Aristotle
