To the person asking about places to go, even though this was not on your

Lovely little fishing village of Naoussa is where we stay. But the port
town of Paroikia is actually one of the prettiest for port towns that
we've seen. There's a small village called Lefkes where you can start on a
Byzantine walk therough the countryside and reach another town. This walk
is wonderful--the smells alone make it worth the trip--wildflowers and
herbs; bees buzzing, and stunning views over the island. Anyway, it's a
great place, and we're returning for 2 months in September &October. It
will be our base, and we will spend most of the time there but plan to
visit some other islands for 3-4 day jaunts. So here's where my question
comes in--which other islands?
I'm glad to see mention of Folegandros as its a place we've tried to get
to several times and still want to visit. Ferry schedules and high winds
have prevented it before (we were near the end of our vacation and had no
flexibility left) but this time that should not be a problem. Any further
info on Folegandros available, or any other suggestions from the Greek
Island enthusiasts? Any suggestions from the armchair travellers who have
circled a spot they want to go when they have the chance?
