    Information about the island: Google "Milos island"

    I have many interests apart from my profession, and my mother in her nineties is a former conference interpreter, and author of several books of local interest.
    You will probably need a car/motorbike if you intend to fully explore the island, but you can hike and swim all you want in the area.
