Beyond the UK

A cross-reference page to those orchids I have seen outside the United Kingdom by place and date. I have to admit that prior to this holidays were simple just that. That was until we went early enough in the year to actually see some orchids. After a couple of years like that orchids became a prime reason to head off before the main holiday season got started

2011 Crete - Aghios Nicholaus A bit late to see much

2012 Malta Again a bit late in the season and went by bus rather than hire car

2014 Puglia A coach tour holiday which included a free day in Gargano where the hire car conked out!

2015 Corfu Saw plenty of orchids back in 1980. Could this be a repeat?

2016 Majorca Drove to the four corners

2017 Cyprus Wonderful - Stayed in Paphos and plenty to see in the west of the island

2018 Crete - Rethimno Again a great base for orchids

2019 Sicily - Syracusa More great places

2022 Ireland - Galway For those UK and Ireland species you cannot find in the UK

2023 Rhodes Small enough to cover all of the island in a week
