The Greek islands are ideal for solo female travelers during high season between the end of May and the end of August. Australia’s winter falls during Greece’s summer so most Aussies venture over to surf, party and island hop. You’ll be in good company.

I didn’t know I had been stung–at first. And then it hit me. My legs burned, screaming for relief from the salty water. I vividly remember three things: the Mediterranean breeze drifting across my brown nose, the whoosh of escaping air from my lungs, and Emilio’s hand in the small of my back pushing toward shore.
Here I am in Santorini, Greece with some donkeys. The area is beautiful – right next to the sea – but beware of all the poop! Santorini definitely lives up to its reputation as the honeymooners’ paradise. Unfortunately my friends and I were on a budget and didn’t get to bask in paradise as much as we would have liked.
