30 Second Escape – Paxos, Greece

July 9, 2009

paxos (912 x 684)

This tiny Greek Island, with a population of just 2500, is truly a jewel set in the blue Ionian Sea. Greek mythology tells us Paxos was the secret hideaway for Poseidon, formed when the island of Corfu was struck with his trident. Fragrant lemon trees and olive groves line the hillsides and secluded coves provide privacy for an afternoon at the beach. Colorful fishing boats tie up at the harbor, a perfect place for sampling Greek specialties and watching the people go by.

ESCAPE DRINK OF THE DAY: Mythos Beer!
