> Dear Mr Gifford,
> 
> William Apt of the ILDS recommended that I write to you in regard to advertising the Patrick Leigh Fermor Society’s tour of Greece, June 17th-30th 2016. 
> 
> Our last few days overlap with the ILDS’ conference. We’ve arranged a great selection of speakers and guests, and visits, including to the Villa Ariadne, which is usually off limits. 
> 
> We still have a few spaces to fill - we have a maximum of 20 people - and obviously ILDS members would make ideal companions for a PLF-themed tour. (Mr. Apt is already on the tour.) Obviously, the price would be adjusted downwards in cases where travelers have already signed up for the ILDS’s conference. 
> 
> Would you be able to post the following to the ILDS list serve?
> 
> Many thanks for your help.
> 
> Yours sincerely,
> Dominic Green

> In Paddy's Footsteps: A Private Tour of Patrick Leigh Fermor’s Greece and Crete
> 
> 17th-30th June 2016
> 
>  
> 
> In Paddy’s Footsteps is a unique journey into Patrick Leigh Fermor’s Greece and Crete. Between 17th and 30th June 2016, a group of no more than twenty travellers will visit major sites in PLF’s life: from his favourite restaurants and hotels, to the homes where he lived and wrote; from Classical monuments to the caves in which the Kreipe kidnappers hid. Our guides will include several Leigh Fermor experts. 
> 
>  
> 
> The tour begins in Athens, where we will eat at Tou Psara, where Leigh Fermor and George Katsimbalis often ate. We then travel through Mycenae and Epidavros to Leigh Fermor’s preferred hotel in Nafplion. From there, we visit Hydra, where much of Mani was written, and the mill at Lemonodassos where Leigh Fermor lived in 1935-36. Then, after stopping at Mystras, we will visit Leigh Fermor’s house at Kardamyli and explore the Mani. Next, we travel to Crete where, after visiting Knossos and the Kreipe kidnap site, we will trace the kidnappers’ journey into the White Mountains, and tour the Resistance sites of the Amari Valley. Our journey ends at Rethymnon, where we will link up with the International Lawrence Durrell Society’s conference.
