I think it’s time for some overall posts in the Cyclades. It comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been there that each island is very different from the other and has its own character and charm. But how would you describe each one in one single word? The selection is of course personal, but after having travelled them all in one go – well I’m entitled to my idiosyncrasies. So there:

Santorini – volcano

Ios – party

Sikinos – solitude

Folegandros – cliffs

Milos – moonscape

Kimolos – pristine

Sifnos – green

Serifos – surprise

Kea – Plaka

Kythnos – spas

Andros – driving

Tinos – Virgin Mary

Mykonos – gay

Syros – Italianate

Paros – beaches

Naxos – Los Angeles

Antiparos – diving

Amorgos – trendy
