about

An amusing and erudite account of Harry Bucknall's 183-day journey through the Greek islands from Venice, in the West, to Istanbul, in the East
 
In the summer of 2006, Harry Bucknall traveled from Venice to Istanbul—a journey across the Aegean of more than 5,500 miles that included the glories of Mount Athos, 36 islands, and every island chain in the Greek Archipelago. It also involved 57 sea passages on 35 ferries, four landing craft, three hydrofoils, a fishing caique, a sea plane, 11 buses, two trains, an open-top Land Rover, and a duck egg blue 1961 Morris Oxford. Recounted with humor, pathos, and at times drama, this is not only a journey through the Greek islands but also a journey through Greek history, mythology, custom, and folklore—a Greek island companion loaded with adventure, mishap, and laughter offering a contemporary image of Aegean life today.
Harry Bucknall is a theater producer, theater reviewer, and travel writer. He has written for Country Life, the Irish Independent, the Spectator, the Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, and various other travel publications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very special journey indeed - I loved it! A sheer delight and a wonderful window through which to experience the captivating lure of the Aegean. Oozing with personality, wit and charm and woven with mythological and historical insight, "In the Dolphin's Wake" is an inspirational and genuinely absorbing journey. Having travelled a somewhat similar passage myself, Harry's book is highly recommended.
