Yacht Charter Blog Launched on Ulitzer

Ulitzer.com launched this morning the Yacht Charter Comunity Blog on Ulitzer.com. Yacht chartering is the practice of renting, or chartering, a sailboat or motor yacht and travelling to various coastal or island destinations. This is usually a vacation activity, but it also can be a corporate event. There are two main kinds of charter: bareboat and crewed. Bareboat charters involve a person renting a boat and skippering it themselves. Most bareboat companies also offer courses to teach basic seamanship and prepare people for bareboat chartering. These companies also sometimes provide skippered charters, meaning that boat comes with a skipper but no additional crew. Crewed charter means the yacht comes with a crew. This can be anything from a 35-foot boat with a husband-and-wife team serving as captain and chef to a 300-foot boat with a squad of 30 or more crew memb... (more)

Panagia Paraportiani, the Church of Our Lady of the Side Gate

From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine This is one of the most known churches of Mykonos. It is unique because almost everyone knows it. It's photo used to be a logo of Mykonos island and also Greece for a long time. You probably have come across a poster of that church at some Greek travel office. The church is one of the most photographed churches of Mykonos. It is a sloping and whitewashed building looking very interesting as time has contributed to the deterioration and damage of its external look, creating a unique building. As for it's name, the word Paraportiani is an adjective made up of the two Greek words Para = Side and Porta = Gate. It has been called so because the church was built right on the side entrance of the Medieval Castle of Hora town, that is Mykonos' main village. Nevertheless today the castle is not there as many buildings have been buil... (more)
