A strong, innate desire to travel
It’s Season 5 of Wanderlust Greece and our presenters are off to the islands of the North Aegean. Ikaria, Samos, Lesvos, Chios and Limnos. A collection of magical isles totally authentic and unspoilt… all the way down to their ancient Greek roots.
Love here comes at first sight, but understanding what makes these island gems tick is another story.
We explore the mastic villages of Chios, learning about the cultivation of the miraculous gum – the tears of Chios – in a year-round process that ends in a brittle, translucent resin with an unmistakable taste and proven pharmaceutical properties that has found a home in… Wait for it: savoury dishes, bread, ice cream, fire-water, chewing gum, toothpaste, perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and so many other products. Did we mention varnishes and preserving photographic negatives?
