Greek Islands the perfect winter escape for Aussies

Ann Rickard

TAKE me to the Greek islands. This photo was taken on Lesbos, but any Greek island will do.

They are all beautiful in the summer with their brown hills, small bays, clear, clean water, and white-washed villas.

Take me down to the harbour when the fishermen come in with their catch and hang their octopus out to dry in the sun.

Then take me to a taverna by the water's edge and let me eat freshly caught chargrilled octopus.
