Sailor’s Choice: A Monkey that flits between sea and shore

Nostalgia is a powerful emotion. After all, it’s the foundation of business for brands such as Harley-Davidson and Indian, and model lines such as Triumph’s ‘modern classics’ and the BMW R nineT and R18.

Outdoor fun on Antiparos, Greece

Even if you’re a frequent visitor to the islands of Greece, you may not have heard of Antiparos. No, it’s not the little contrarian brother of Paros, but it does often get overlooked in favor of the larger nearby island. With under 2,000 permanent residents and spanning just 17 square miles, Antiparos is small in many senses of the word, but not when it comes to adventure and natural, rugged beauty. By all means, take some time to visit Paros on your vacation but also carve out some time to s...

Greek islands without the crowds

Summering in the Greek islands isn’t just for British royalty anymore. And, unfortunately, that’s kind of the problem. The places that have given the islands their worldwide reputation for white-walled cliffside villages, ancient ruins, and stunning blue water are full. Hit a beach in Santorini this time of year, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someplace to put a towel. Drinks at bars in Mykonos are as much as they are in Manhattan. It’s generally just a tourism glut. The good news is that...

Reasons to visit Piraeus, Greece

On your visit to Greece, there’s a good chance you’ll pass through Piraeus. There’s an equally good chance you won’t slow down to check out this port city, using it instead as a throughway between Athens and the Greek Islands as do millions of tourists each year. But Piraeus has more to offer than its busy boat docks and traffic jams. It has picturesque neighborhoods, hilltop restaurants with amazing views, and some of the most incredible seafood the country has to offer. Here’s why Piraeus s...

Best Black Friday Cyber Monday deals

Once upon a time , the day after Thanksgiving — aka the day no one in the US has a damn thing to do — was known as Black Friday. The day retail outlets went “into the black,” so to speak, as shoppers jammed malls and department stores to get a jump on their Christmas shopping. But as shopping in actual stores has become about as relevant as landlines, the shift in Black Friday madness has turned to Cyber Monday — when online retailers offer huge discounts, minus the elbows to the face over Tic...

Fine for stealing pebbles

For many vacationers , taking a glass jar of sand or a few seashells home from their beach vacation almost seems like a right of passage. Few mementos make better restroom decor than pebbles, and grabbing a few small rocks to pack up and take home can be the perfect reminder of sun-bathed memories. Unless you’re traveling to the Greek island of Skiathos, where those pocketed pebbles could come at a hefty cost. Among the most popular destinations on the island, Lalaria Beach is lined with white...
