My Greek Island Retreat 2019

with Debby Schuh 


I am so excited to announce a new adventure... my first retreat and classes in Greece, on the beautiful island of Syros in the Aegean Sea.

We'll be exploring, touring, creating, eating, relaxing, swimming, relaxing, photographing, and enjoying life together on this amazing island that is known for its beauty, food, and authentic Greek island life.

Our hosts, Catherine and Jack, will welcome us to the Hotel Alkyon for five days in Syros before we head to Athens for our last two days together.

The care, friendliness, and hospitality they are known for will make our week together unforgettable!

September 2019 trip: We will depart from Athens on Wednesday, September 11, in the late afternoon to take the three hour ferry to Syros. Our days will include both scheduled activities together and lots of free time to relax and explore on your own. On Monday, September 16, we will return together to Athens and spend three nights exploring the ancient city. Your departure day will be Thursday September 19, from Athens.




 Here are the details for our week together...

Anyone is welcome to join us for this delightful week. I expect that we might have women from the US, Italy, France, Greece, and other countries. What a wonderful chance to get to know others and share our love of traveling, photography, and scrapbooking!
