Go: Zakynthos, Greece

12.21.2011 | by: Meghan

I’ve been so crazed working on Honor & Folly, I’ve let designtripper fall to the wayside a bit. And now that the b&b is open (hooray!), this is exactly the kind of trip I’d like to take. Tatjana Quax, the stylist half of Studio Aandacht, sent over these photos from her late fall trip to the Ionian island of Zakynthos–documented by Homer and later home to a litany of famous poets, artists and composers. Mythical legend contends that Artemis used to wander the island’s woods, while her brother Apollo played his lira under the trees in order to enchant the island and make it even more beautiful.

Travelers are still wooed by the natural beauty, of course (you can’t read anything without mention of the majestic caves, cliffs or capes), but it gets more and more difficult to separate that from the thriving and pretty scene-y hotel-restaurant-gallery-shop circuit of the islands. Tatjana’s photos are a good reminder of how you can turn something that many might perceive as a drawback into a trip’s most striking asset. During the tail-end of Greece’s Indian summer, most everything is closed, but Tatjana took advantage of having the island entirely to herself. I appreciate seeing a place like this without throngs of tourists/vacationers, stripped back to its essentials, making you appreciate the great natural beauty that made it so popular in the first place.
