Sailing the Ionian Greek islands

sailing the greek islands
 Sailing the Ionian Greek island This video about sailing was made by Ryan Clark as a birthday present to his granddad, the skipper of their sailing trip to the Ionian Greek islands (νησιά Ιονίου) of Kefallonia (Κεφαλονιά) and Ithaca (Ιθάκη).  Definitely one of the best videos we have seen about Greece, its pure beauty and its colours. The music is also perfect, as a cinematic effect. Once you start watching it you will get that nostalgic feeling when summer holidays are over. Winner of “Vimeo Staff Pick” December 2014
Winner of “VOTD Video of the Day” January 2015
