A Dash of Time
Historical Week in the Cyclades
“For all its material advantages the sedentary life has left us edgy, unfulfilled. Even after 4 hundred generations in villages and cities, we haven't forgotten. The open road still softly calls, like a nearly forgotten song of childhood” - Carl Sagan
From time immemorial, the sea and the wind have built bridges between worlds. With A Dash of Time we build our own bridge through time as we rewind the clock from the prehistoric ages to the Byzantines.
This week we begin our journey through the eons from the Archaic island sanctuary of Delos. We Sail to the Mycenaean fortresses of Sifnos, stroll through the alleys of the lost city of Akrotiri in Santorini and dive next to a sunken WWII airplane in Iraklia.
The journey is complimented by swim stops at the islands of Despotiko, Folegandros, Ios, Heraclia, Naxos and a night BBQ in a secluded beach under the stars of Sifnos.
All the archeological site visits include a private tour with a licensed English speaking guide
