I had a conversation with my wife last night, the subject being ‘a changing Skiathos ‘ . We both agreed that since our initial visit in1999 things have changed, back then the island went to bed before midnight, less places to dine, not as many retail outlets. We both came to the conclusion, being regular visitors, we have morphed into the islands development, we love it now just as before.
However we now choose to visit either in May or September, previously we would have journeyed in peak season. We also agreed that actually getting to Skiathos has become out of the reach of many, we are fortunate enough we can still enjoy visiting,
It appears to be cheaper for our Eastern European brethren to travel, and this along with Scandinavia seems to be the focus of tourism marketing. I just hope our grandchildren will have the opportunity to visit in years to come.
That's what I thought initially Dave, what about the rest of the country. However, if you think about it, London is a city with international tourists so in effect you are advertising to the world and not just England's capital. Would that not be a cost effective coup?
