well the time had come for B&H to take a little break and get some sun...
so we went to Athens to visit Lidija, an old friend of Bosko's, and then to the island of Naxos... an old stomping ground of Bosko's in his pre-ukulele days...

Honey had never visit Greece before, and once we got used to the crippling Athens summer heat, we got on a ferry and headed for the islands...

once on Naxos we stayed at the apartment of our good friend Benji - the fastest beer drinker in the world and newly converted kite surfer...

Benji had visted us several times in Australia, and we both recalled how we were talking of the possibility of meeting in Naxos this year - b&h on a hare-brained idea of an Ukulele Safari, and Benji's hopes of living in Naxos on his time off from his new job on an oil rig...

our meeting was evidence of dreams come true!

Benji and another old mate "J.P." also showed us extreme generosity in supporting the Safari with some hard-earned Euro, and Benji with an unending supply of hospitality...

thanks guys!

also in Naxos, b&h sucessfully converted another old friend to the ukulele...
Ross is a Jazz musician who now lives full-time in Naxos with few opportunities to play with others of similar musical taste, so he was delighted to jam with us - as were we with him!
Ross' main instrument is double bass, but has been pursuing the guitar for many years now
when we turned up with our ukes it didn't take long to convince him to join us for a Safari video, and we rehearsed and recorded "Days of Wine and Roses"

WATCH IT HERE

we've promised to send both he and Benji a uke in the near future...

on the ferry to Naxos we ended up sharing food and farewells... all without a common language...
