Journalist and travel writer Lorenza Bacino went island hopping in Greece with her husband and young children last summer. They travelled by boat between islands and rented rooms from locals. Lorenza wrote a lovely article about their trip for Mums do travel when she got back – you can read it here.
I wanted to find out more about their experience so I met up with Lorenza in London to talk about it. This is what she told me:
I think that island hopping in Greece sounds like a great family holiday and it’s also an inexpensive way to have a summer trip abroad with kids. I was interested to hear that Lorenza’s trip started in Athens. We were there last October and we really enjoyed exploring the Greek capital and meeting the locals. It wasn’t hot enough to go to the beach though so we didn’t think of island hopping. I wonder if there’s a time of year when the temperature would be good for enjoying both the city and the islands?
Have you ever been on an island hopping trip like this with your kids? If so, how was it? If not, is it something that you’d like to do?
