“An ardent desire to go took possession of me once more. Not because I wanted to leave – I was quite all right on this Cretan coast, and felt happy and free there and I needed nothing – but because I have always been consumed with one desire; to touch and see as much as possible of the earth and the sea before I die.”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Wanderlust Greece wandered around Evia and Skyros. 11 days of joyful and creative shooting brought to life to the many highlights of these destinations… starting from the iconic suspension bridge of Chalkida and heading into the heart of Evia where we discover cultural gems and inspiring nature, even an exotic coastline that resembles a tropical paradise.
We moved on to Skyros, an island of long-standing traditions and customs, and unspoilt beaches for those who value the “throw a towel on the sand and dream the day away” kind of summer holiday experience.
And then it’s back to the mainland for many more cultural and natural highlights. Running as a constant theme throughout is the mouth-watering local food and agricultural produce that represent both the destination and the people we encounter.
Surrounded by the sea and mountains
Greece gave birth to the traveler
Keep on discovering
In our own way
Far away lands
Greece’s second biggest island
Connected to the mainland
Feel the relationship with nature
When places start to look alike
No two are the same
Surrounded by greenery
First person to ever discover them
Kind and warmhearted
Slow paced island life
The unique Skyrian horses
A sense of freedom and wonder
You become part of it
It becomes part of you
It fills your heart
That golden feeling of Wanderlust
“Greece has got something like 1,400 islands. There is so much of Greece you can’t know even if you’re Greek. It’s sprinkled out all around the edge of the Aegean, all over the place. It’s already a secret place wherever you go. The place enchanted me”.
