Island Hopping to Halki

Halki island, greece (20)

Today was my last day of island hopping around Greece. 

It really had been the most unreal experience, but sadly all things must come to an end. However not wanting to break our spirits, we were promised a real hidden treasure.

When we started to slow down, and these views came in, I started to get that giddy explorer feeling.

And rightly so, as such in front was the most beautiful town I had ever seen.

Halki is a teeny tiny island, actually it is the smallest inhabited Greek island with a population of just a few hundred.
The stunning harbor is lined with Venetian style coloured houses, making it visually just gorgeous. Everyone scrabbled to the side of the boat and gasped.

We anchored by the rocks, with the promise of exploring after lunch. But first we were all keen to dive into the crystal lagoon like waters.

I can't really believe I haven't spoken to you about food aboard MDFV. The food really is such an integral part.

Every day we have 3 meals or should I say feasts together, family style, and with views like this as your dining sights, well, it's really not hard too see why this is paradise.

Oh and when I say the food was unreal, it really was. The chef on board trained at 5 star hotels across Europe. Yeah, that good.

But even food that good couldn't keep us from heading ashore.

Perched on a tiny speedboat, we came into the only town of the island.

With only one town, one hotel and one beach, it really is a place to just unwind and relax, because well, there isn't much else to do.

But sometimes that's just OK.

Sadly after a few hours, it was time to leave, and head back home.

I can honestly say this island hopping adventure of mine was truly the bet trip I've ever had. Everyday I woke up on deck and just couldn't quite believe where I was, or what I was seeing.

Never had I experienced such paradise.

Seriously, I can't recommend MDFV enough. It truly is the best holiday you could have. It really has opened up my eyes to such wonders in the world, and also made be in a perpetual state of wanderlust.

I'm sure I'll find a way to be back in 2016, as with these sights just a few hours away, there's nothing holding me back.
