    Nafpaktos

    May 21 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Wir kommen heute recht spät aus den Federn, so dass es nach einem leckeren Frühstück auf unserer Hüttenterrasse, bestehend aus Obst und Joghurt, schon 11 Uhr ist, als wir auf den Rädern sitzen. Der Weg bietet erneut einige Steigungen, die nicht ganz zur heutigen körperlichen Verfassung von Claudia passen. So geht es eher langsam voran, wir machen lange Pause, freuen uns über Orangen am Wegesrand und über die spektakuläre Sicht auf die Rio-Andirrio-Brücke oder offiziell Charilaos-Trikoupis-Brücke, die über die Meerenge von Rio-Andirrio führt und den Eingang zum Golf von Korinth bildet. Der Blick auf die Brücke soll uns noch etwas länger erhalten bleiben, da wir zu dem Entschluss kommen, außerplanmäßig die Nacht in Nafpaktos zu verbringen. Wir nehmen uns ein Zimmer in einer sehr netten Pension und genießen den Abend in diesem sehr netten Ort: Strand, Drohnenfliegerei, (mäßig leckeres) Essen mit Blick auf die Hafeneinfahrt, wunderbares Abendlicht!Read more

    Nafpaktos

    November 19, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Wow when we woke up on Saturday and looked towards Delphi on the side of Mount Parnassos there was snow. Snow this is Greece you don’t picture snow when you think of Greece well we didn’t but apparently there are 27km of ski slopes on Mount Parnassos! We left Itea after a coffee and headed south but only about 5Nm to an almost landlocked bay with only a hotel that was closed. But as it was still p***ing down we weren’t going anywhere in the dinghy anyway so didn’t matter at all. We did contemplate a walk ashore but the pack of dogs we saw persuaded us this was a naff idea!
    Next day we headed to Nisos Trizonia, somewhere Ken from Almerimar had mentioned, still on Northern shore of Corinthian Gulf. It was still raining and cold though not quite as bad which made appreciating the island harder but we did decide that in the sunshine it would have been interesting to walk around and the tiny harbour, along from the marina, would have been a lovely place to drink a coffee ☕️ and watch the world go by. The ‘marina’ was fairly big but had had its fair share of abandoned boats some were still in the water rather than on it, others had sunk and were being removed. As seems to be the norm we were one of only 2 inhabited yachts and only stayed the 1 night.
    We are now in Nafpaktos which we wouldn’t have been able to come to in season as it’s a bit small. It’s an old medieval harbour the entrance is 35m wide, we are largest boat by about 8m. We did walk up to the castle, but we forgot today was Monday when all tourist sites tend to be closed, so have to walk up again tomorrow.

    Nafpaktos Castle

    November 20, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    We walked back up to the Castle as it was Tuesday so the sign said it would be open and fortunately it was, lots of the exterior walls were still standing but there wasn’t a lot of info about the Castle except that it was primarily Venetian but built on top of and incorporating older features. Photos look OK.
    When we wandered back to the boat it was bobbing around so we decided to head to the Patras Marina. If only we had known then what we know now we would have stayed where we were. But anyway, off we went passing under Rio–Antirrio Bridge, officially the Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge, is one of the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and longest of the fully suspended type. It crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras, linking the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road with a toll if you drive across but free to pass under as long as you ask permission!

    Nafpaktos

    November 30, 2016 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Winter has set in. We see snow on Mt Parnassos, and it's negative 2 deg. C just a few miles away inland. We are hugging the shore, where it stays much warmer. The bridge to the Peloponnese is nearby, and we'll visit the bridge's museum tomorrow. The first person to cross it was the Olympic torch runner before the 2004 Athens games. Should be fun.Read more
