Thanks to our reader Johnny Foundoulakis for sharing these fifty stunning images he shot during his holidays in the island of Hydra.
Considered by many to be the “anti-Mykonos,” Hydra is a favorite amongst Greek and global jetsetters not looking for “likes” on Instagram pictures and places to be seen, but rather— a secret and subdued hideaway far away from the paparazzi and loud music.
There are no cars or motor bikes on Hydra so the donkey is ubiquitous, as is the water taxi, which can whisk you to opposite sides of the tiny island in minutes.
Johnny Foundoulakis, born in New Zealand and lover of art and travel, is a fitness expert and amateur photographers go splits his time between Greece and London. We are grateful that he shared these fifty great shots with us.
Since you’re here… I have a small favor to ask.
More and more people than ever before are reading The Pappas Post and despite increasing costs to maintain the site and provide you with the quality content that you deserve, I will never “force” you to pay for our website or add a paywall. I believe in the democracy of the internet and want to keep this site and its enriching content free for everyone. But at the same time I’m asking those who frequent the site to chip in and help keep it both high quality— and free. We’ve implemented a “free-will” annual subscription for those who want to support our efforts. I guess it’s fair to call it a philotimo subscription… because you don’t have to do it but it’s really the right thing to do if you love the site and the content we publish. So if you like The Pappas Post and want to help, please consider becoming a “philotimo subscriber”. Click here to subscribe.
