Greece trips

I have been visiting Greece in search of the reptiles and amphibians found there since I was very young. I first started visiting the islands around 2002 where I used to have family holidays in Kefalonia and Corfu. Since then my interest in the herpetofauna and other nature in this country has progressed significantly and I have now visited many parts of this amazing country including the following islands: Corfu, Paxos, Kefalonia, Zakynthos, Crete, Mykonos, Delos, Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Sikinos, Ios, Koufonisia, Santorini, Milos, Kimolos, Rhodes, Symi, Kos, Kalymnos, Lesvos and Limnos.
