    A nice holiday, in nowadays society, is a quite essential thing: not only it is a source of enjoyment, but also psychologically necessary, to get rid of toxins of a whole working year.
    Even if the most luxurious destinations might be too expensive for a number of people, still there is a clear need for a break. For instance, spending all of the available time for holidays in the same place, even a great one, would just replicate the usual daily routine in a different context.

    The Greek isles are certainly among the most interesting places for their stunning naturalistic beauty. There is a high number of islands, some not inhabited even, with many different features: history and untouched nature, crystal clear waters and local products. Some of these wonderful islands are particularly apt for family holidays.

    Vacation Yachting is the website and company that takes all of these characteristics and needs into consideration, to organise a quite out of the ordinary option for a sailing holiday through the Greek islands. It offers different routes to visit a number of the most famous islands enjoying the Greek atmosphere.

    The Greek islands can be grouped into some main groups: the Saronic Gulf Islands, the islands off the Peloponnesian coast, the Cyclades, the small Cyclades and the Dodecanese Islands.

    The itineraries on offer by Vacation Yachting make possible to visit some extraordinary places, such as Mykonos, Santorini, Lavrio, giving the option of a one or two weeks cruise.

    This is made possible by the Yacht “Atlantis 60”, well equipped with all the comforts to sail in the best conditions. It can accommodate 8-10 guests, with children, in 4 double en-suite air conditioned bedrooms.

    Vacation Yachting offers another option to avoid an ordinary holiday in Greece. It is a new option in the choices of holidays in Greece, but also a way to make happy someone who, loving nature and wanting to explore the wonders of the sea, would never be satisfied with an ordinary holiday.

  • Greece Hotels Learn the Secrets of the Ancient Islands

    Comments Off on Greece Hotels Learn the Secrets of the Ancient Islands
    December 14, 2020 /  Tours & Travels

    Ancient Greece gave many things to the modern world including the foundations of mathematics and the sciences. Holidaymakers visiting the mainland or the islands will also discover that Greece continues to surprise and confound modern scientists and archaeologists with more recent findings. Tourists staying in Greece hotels can visit the capital, Athens to see some of the artefacts that have been recovered from the Dokos Shipwreck, the oldest known shipwreck in the world dating back past 2500BC. Due to its age many artefacts perished but divers did manage to recover many ceramic containers from the wreckage. The Antikythera wreck is probably the most fruitful discovery of them all and again most of the treasures were taken to Athens after being discovered. Among them were some excellent marbles and also priceless bronze statues like the Philosophers head. However the Antikythera mechanism is its best artefact. The mechanical device is as sophisticated as a mechanical watch made by the Swiss masters of early modernity and scientists believe it was an accurate way of mapping celestial bodies for navigating the oceans or some similar purpose. Holidaymakers visiting Crete, the largest Greek island can see artefacts recovered from La Therese, a French Navy vessel that sank late in the 17th century after an on board explosion. The largest Greek island has a very long history so holidaymakers have a good choice of cultural visits, beaches and inland hikes to choose from. The ruins of the Royal Palace at Knosos are interesting and should precede a trip to the Irakleio museum where holidaymakers can learn more about the ancient Minoans through their artefacts and the other wonders they built on the island. Bodrum hotels on Turkey’s Aegean coast are also popular for holidaymakers who enjoy the Greek islands as they are often close to or on the coast and have excellent views of both Kos and Rhodes. Holidaymakers staying in Bodrum have a pick of excellent beaches to choose from and can visit the historical old city for a memorable excursion looking through artefacts left behind by the ancients. The imposing Castle of St John is Bodrum’s most popular visitor attraction and houses a wonderful maritime museum full of artefacts of all shapes and sizes that have been salvaged from the Aegean and Mediterranean seabeds. The artefacts include glassware dating back to the first century BC and ceramics from the same and later periods. The museums most interesting collections are the shipwrecks, some of which are Bronze Age. There are also Byzantine shipwrecks in the museum’s Glass shipwreck hall. For holidaymakers that want to have a look at the ceramics and other vessels that were used to transport foods and liquids the Amphora exhibit is a very comprehensive collection. The Castle of St John is a very good if slightly unexpected treat for holidaymakers staying in Bodrum and Gumbet hotels.

  • History Of Holiday Wreaths

    Comments Off on History Of Holiday Wreaths
    November 2, 2013 /  Tours & Travels

    Wreaths are used since ages, examples are the ancient Rome and ancient Greece used wreaths as a headdress for the Olympic prizes, battle or military heroes, emperors and so on. It is also said that in ancient times, Romans used wreaths as a victory sign as well. Let us make a distinction here between different types of wreaths used in the past as we have some historical facts before us. In past the laurel wreaths were meant for athletes and the wreaths made of olive branches were used for military or battle heroes. The Christmas wreaths symbolize how life overcome the forces of winter. Wreaths are also used as symbol of welcome to all guests. Wreaths are mostly in circular shape without having the starting or ending point. Due to its unique design, these are considered as the symbol of faith and also represent the mercy and eternity of God during the Christmas Eve. Different colors used in wreath or the leaves represent different things. For instance, the evergreen leaves and branches in the wreath symbolize the everlasting life and the love of God. On the other hand, the green color also signifies the new life and hope and sometimes also peace.

    In past, the Christmas wreaths were made of plants which were capable of maintaining their green shades throughout the entire year. Those wreaths were usually made of pine, holly and ivy. The purpose behind those wreaths was to show that the life is everlasting and the greenness of the leaves in the winter season truly symbolizes this fact.

    Most of the people around the world relate the holiday wreaths to the Christmas wreaths. But in fact, there are certain other kinds of wreaths also. An important thing here to mention is that wreaths never have any special connection to any particular religion. This is a common thought of many of the people that wreaths are meant to be in connection with some specific religion. Nowadays, wreaths are made from plastic, artificial flowers and fresh flowers along with other leaves, berries and branches. Many people used them as a decoration on their doors, windows, fireplaces and even on tables.

    These are now made almost the whole year and not confined to the winter season. No matter what is the purpose behind using these wreaths, they are surely a great way to express one feeling either by using it as a decoration or giving it as a gift on special events.
