    Dolphins ho!

    June 10 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Captain Joe spotted some dolphins playing off the port side. We slowed down to watch them and they came over to visit us! We saw them swimming under the boat and leaping in front of our bow and sometimes they rolled on their side to take a look at us. The Aegean is an amazing place!

    Akropolis

    October 7 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Die Akropolis war leider einer der klassischen Touristenorte - hoffnungslos überfüllt, teuer und mit eher mittelmässig liebevoller Restauration. Ein Besuch bringt einem der griechischen Kultur in etwa so nahe, wie der Besuch beim Griechen zu Hause. Um es mit dem schrecklich doofen Slogan von Edelweiss zu sagen: "Been there. Done that."
    Da der Versuch die Ruinen ohne Menschenmassen, Baugerüste, Scheinwerfer, Kabel oder Stromkästen zu fotografieren kläglich scheiterte, haben wir den Spiess umgedreht und die Massen abgelichtet. Wer schafft es Ati im Chaos zu finden? (;

    Wach werden auf der Veranda

    October 6 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Die kühlen Morgenstunden auf der Veranda geniessen solange wir noch können... Die nächsten Stationen werden nur noch heisser. Heute ist Strandtag angesagt, morgen gehts nach Athen sich an der Kultur erfreuen und am Abend ins heisse Israel.
    Wir können es kaum erwarten, die Bikes am 08.10. (hoffentlich) wieder in Empfang zu nehmen. 🥰Read more

    Akropolis en fietsen door Athene

    June 22 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Vanmorgen naar de Akropolis gegaan en rond gelopen. Wat is er veel verandert na 36 jaar. Wat we voorheen mochten is nu niet meer toegestaan. Op de paden blijven en alles achter touwen bekijken. Is ook wel nodig met al die mensen. Daarna lekker wat gewandeld en gegeten. Oh ja het wisselen van de wacht gezien bij parlementsgebouw Waren net op tijd. Om 17 u hadden we een alternatieve fietstocht door Athene geboekt. Duurde 3 uur en een hele andere kijk op Athene gekregen. Nu lekker aan een koud biertje🍻Read more

    Op het eiland Evia.

    June 24 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Vandaag vanuit Athene vertrokken naar het eiland Evia. Met het pondje zijn we overgestoken naar het plaatsje Eretria. Daar blijven we een paar nachten maar eerst wat van het eiland verkennen. Een mooie rondrit gemaakt van de westkust naar de oostkust en weer terug. Vele mooie vergezichten gezien. Uiteindelijk op onze bestemming aangekomen.Read more

    Peleponese Greece

    June 26 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We left Athens and drove northwest to the Corinth canal and then onto various beautiful villages around the Peleponese. The best example of Roman amphitheatre was just west of Epidavros. We then enjoyed the fishing and sailing village of Nafplion. And finally arrived at the final stop for the day, the little coastal village of Methanion which has it's own natural hot springs that leak into the sea. We scored a wonderful hotel overnight third floor right on waterfront!Read more

    Athens Greece

    June 17 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Well we've had a breif but enjoyable visit to this great city. Our b&b is right in heart of tourist town at base of the Accroplis. We struggled to find parking for car but after about the fourth try we prevailed but not before we were relived of 40 euros for two days! The apartment is quiet but bustling with tourists from early until late. We climbed accropolis hill at 8 am before main crowds arrived from cruise liners. Then we did the Ho ho bus....city tour and came back for lunch and compulsory book club (rest). Lloyd went off for an afternoon adventure to Piraeus city and harbour on Ho ho bus and the girls went shopping! Final evening saw us eating out in this magical time warp of a city.Read more

    Travel to Athens

    Yesterday in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We slept in, ate a late breakfast, and then drove to Athens. We took the back roads for some of the way, driving through villages and a big town or two. It’s fun to see how life happens for normal people— saw a lot of little market stands, people navigating chaotic traffic on bikes, and lots of old men sitting outside in cafes. Not much in the way of urban planning or traffic planning that we could see. About 100 km out, we got on the toll road and dropped the car at the airport. You would need nerves of steel or a death wish to drive in Athens.

    Our hotel is a notch above our normal level, but the bar, pool, and restaurant have a view of the Acropolis and the elliptical is the best one of the entire trip by far. Seems like a good splurge so far.

    The Next Paradise

    September 3 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    It’s always good when you don’t have an early start. We enjoyed our last breakfast on our balcony and then returned our hire car and got a lift to the port to catch the ferry to Syros. It was and amazing ferry so different to the ones I caught 35 years ago. One thing isn’t different, they serve crappy food!

    We arrived at the port of Syros and were immediately aware of how different this place was to Santorini. About a third of the tourists in town and really gorgeous small cobbled streets and lovely buildings.

    We met Kostas our Air BnB host at the town hall and he helped us carry our heavy bags up 145 stairs, thank goodness! We arrived at Villa Maria and were really glad we moved to this island, the room is beautiful and we have a great balcony overlooking the town and port. Felt very relaxed from the start.

    Didn’t take us long to set out exploring and first stop was a small cafe that served homemade sangrias so of course we had to sample them. Cafe overlooking the local swimming spot and town. We dragged ourselves away and went and found a supermarket for some breakfast supplies and took them back to our BnB.

    We headed out to find a place for dinner recommended by Kostas and found one of them that was a locals place and we ordered way too much food but it was all yummy!

    It had been a long day so we managed to find our way back and went to bed. Only thing was the movie playing down in the square was so loud that if we could seen the screen we could have watched it for free. We are amazed at the difference between the two islands and definitely prefer Syros.
