I've been doing some investigating!

I'm not someone to sit back and listen to rumour so i always go to the source and find out whats going on, So with speculation and rumour about the coming season i visited 4 travel agents in Swansea who aren't linked with each other and had a look at the holidays in the window. All the holidays in the windows for the greek islands were priced for the beginning of june for 2 and 4 people and Zakynthos was the cheapest by the nearest that was £30 more. Then i went inside and told the travel agent i wanted to go to a greek island, not sure what one but a island with a resort that had a nice mixture 1 offered Crete resort stalis, another offered Rhodes resort Lindos but 2 offered Zakynthos resorts Tsilivi and Kalamaki. So at the moment from my look around the travel shops Zakynthos could be in for a good season but lets not get ahead of ourselves i'll do the same thing in Cardiff tomorrow and then do the same again in a months time and then towards the end of April to see what they say then.

Rainy days are good for something!

I've always been interested in countries original culture and people, so much so during high school i studied greek culture and mythology also Native American history.
So today on this rainy horrible day in Wales i decided to read up on Maori and Aboriginal history.

America and Australia are the least places i want to visit as i think these countries have lost nearly all of they're original history and both seem to live off the new history that has been created by the European invasion to the countries. The Maoris have fought back and the Maori population has been on the increase after the european invasion in the 18th century. Reading through from when the first Europeans landed on these countries it seems that the diseases that the europeans brought with them wiped out a high number of the original population to these countries and the new history also tries to hide the countries original culture because of the way the europeans had treated the original inhabitants.

I think this is why i'm so attracted to Greece and led me to work on Zakynthos, Crete, Kos and Corfu, the culture is still there to be seen, the stories and myths are still being spoke of to this day, Historical buildings or ruins are so many and so close for you to visit and walk around.
The greeks are meant to be one of the oldest civilisations but the history is still with everyone in the present and proud of it but with America and Australia its all about the "new world" when the "old world" is so much more interesting.

If visitng these countries look past the sun drenched beaches, shopping malls, plush hotels and Ex-pats, try to find the real people and history of the Maori's, Aborignal natives and Native American indians.

Kalamaki map zante

Just click on the map to enlarge, its just a basic map for those of you who've asked about a few hotels, restaurants and bars and locations of old and new kalamaki. This is a very basic map but it shows the shape of the main centre of Kalamaki nice and clear.
