Hi! We are

The Shepherds, Michael & Karin

We lived for ten years on the delightful isle of Paros, Greece–the all around island with something for everyone. We would like to invite you to share our piece of paradise through the pictures and visitor information throughout this web site.

During this time we also travelled extensively, both island hopping and touring the mainland of Greece. Thus this travel guide also provides photos, commentary, maps of the best islands and mainland sites to visit.

Our insider experience and budget tips will enhance your personal Greek odyssey.
