For clarification purposes, I'd like to make a slight alteration to a previous statement. Yes I'd love to go to Ravello and stay at the Hotel Caruso, but it's not the absolute number one thing I want in this world - purely because I love travelling so much that almost every destination would tie for the number one spot.

So my list will follow in no particular order.

And today's wish is to go to Navagio Beach, also known as Shipwreck beach or Smugglers Cove in Greece.

Navagio is located on the north-west shore of the Ionian island of Zakynthos (Zante) and is only accessible by boat from Porto Vromi to the south, and from the Harbor of Saint Nikolas in Volimes to the north-east.

This is one of those places I'd want to visit with a special someone. You can't witness something so majestic while you're trekking solo. Goes for most places. And while we're in the vicinity - we can pop down to Paros Island.

Two birds, one stone.


  1. That is absolutely GORGEOUS!

  2. Wow. I grew up in Hawaii and am a bit spoiled when it comes to the ocean but would definitely want to visit these spots.

    Price tag on #1 is a bit of a concern though, need to start saving!

  3. I was just thinking about a possible trip to Italy or Greece within the next year. But mine would be a budget-travel experience...

  4. Ooooooh, how gorgeously breath-taking!!! I want to go!

  5. Breath Taking & GORGEOUS! Greece is one of my ultimate "Must See" places!

    It is indeed ;)

    Lets go...

    WOW, you grew up in Hawaii. I can't imagine it being anything other than awesome!

    Price tag for #1 is subject to having loads of money to waste ;P

    All my trips abroad are budget trips - I'm willing to make an exception for a night at Hotel Caruso (the budget rooms start at EUR500) :)

    Looks amazing yeah :)

    Greece has been on my list of places to see for some time - I just need to GET there *sigh*

  7. Well, what a coincidence. I was in the neighborhood in 1994 but decided NOT to visit Zakynthos. I figured if you've seen one Greek island, you've seen them all. Colossal mistake, thank you. But I'm not going there, because it costs money and money doesn't make me happy ;)

    Colossal mistake indeed. Look, I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at islands. Churches however, I can do without...

  9. Oh my. "Swoons"

    Love the colour of the water in the photos.

    Yes it really is so awesome. Would LOVE to see it in real life someday soon! :)
