Escape to Ikaria : All at Sea in the Aegean, Paperback / softback Book

Escape to Ikaria : All at Sea in the Aegean Paperback / softback

Description

Leaving their Welsh hill farm behind, Nick, Ros and their children arrive on the little-known island of Ikaria in 1978, having impulsively boarded the first ferry leaving Athens.

Escape to Ikaria tells the story of how they become involved with the islanders and their way of life.

Nick tries his hand at anything to get by: night fishing out in the Aegean, unloading the potato boats from Samos, mixing cement for wayward house-builder Datsun Jim, and tending the gardens of the old monastery where a solitary nun, Sister Ulita, controls the village's water supply.
