    Paros (we made it)

    October 1, 2017 in Greece

    With the winds still howling and choppy seas we made it to Paros at close to 11pm. After spending a huge portion of the day waiting around we were utterly exhausted. Thankfully we had prearranged transport to the hotel because this island is far more difficult to navigate than Mykonos or Santorini.

    A short 20 minute drive and we arrived at our hotel in the town of Naousa, check in was fast and we were in bed quickly. That's when we my stomach started to churn. It felt like I was back on the ferry as my stomach rolled again and again. I really want to sleep instead I am seasick on land. Bugger, not fair.

    Hopefully this passes soon.

    Scrumptious

    October 2, 2017 in Greece

    After catching the local bus back to Naousa (a much cheaper option than the morning's cab), we set off in search of a seafood restaurant in the town square. We never found it. Instead we found Yenleni, an amazing wine bar.

    The food was fabulous. We started with delicious bread and dips. Both were clearly made on site. The olive dip in particular was fabulous. Next was entré, we shared a slow cooked chickpea dish. The highlight of the night; the flavours and textures just perfect. Our waiter later told us the chickpeas are slow cooked overnight which is why they are so flavoursome. We had veal pasta for main and the meat was tender and juicy.

    As it was a wine bar it would be lapse of me not to talk about the wine. Their wine list by both the bottle and glass was extensive (and I don't think I saw the entire list). It mostly focused on Greek wines and had wines to suit most budgets. Nicole chose a light refreshing white. I settled on a red from the north which had a similar palate to a Cab Sav after trying a number of Merlots that weren't quite to my liking.

    The service in general was great, but the sommelier's attentiveness was a cut above the rest. He successfully combined our preferences and his knowledge to find us the best matched wine for our food.

    Feeling sated, we were just about to request the bill when our waiter brought us a small slice of chocolate cake. It was so moist. The flavours Delicious. All ready full we made room for it. The sommelier brought us a digestive, which I pretty confident was home brewed port, made by his mother in law. It was delicious and sweet and the perfect way to finish the night.

    If you ever visit Paros this place is a must.

    Heading to Paros, Greece

    July 15, 2017 in Greece

    We were up early and left by seven to drive to Bordeaux airport. We flew to Athens and then on to Paros . A mini bus picked us up and drove us to our villa in Naousa. It was quite a culture shock to arrive in the somewhat dry landscape after coming from lush southern France. Our villa was lovely and had a pool, multiple rooms all with bathrooms and a big outdoor space for eating. We headed down to the waterfront and found a restaurant. Dinner was delicious seafood with Greek wine. The sun set over the mountain nearby which was lovely! We had drinks at bar in a lane way.Read more

    Diving in Greece!

    July 16, 2017 in Greece

    No croissants for breakfast anymore, back to fruit and muesli. It was nice and hot so after a relaxing morning we headed to the bus station. We went to Santa Maria and met Jake and Ali to go diving. The water was warm and a bright light blue colour. There wasn't much to see underwater other than some crockery, a few small fish and some reeds. I think all the fish have been eaten! I got to test out my new underwater camera which worked really well. We lazed on the beach and drank Mythos beers before heading back. Dinner was pork with Greek salad and eggplant cooked by Ali and Jake. It certainly was a feast!!Read more

    Flamingo happiness

    July 17, 2017 in Greece

    We went for a short walk and got coffee at the bakery. We caught the ferry this morning over to the national park. The landscape was dramatic with lots of cliffs. We had the slowest lunch ever with a wait of over two hours for basic food. It was all worth it though when upon arriving at a beach, Jake and Ali found a blow up flamingo that had been left behind by people on a big yacht. We named it Zeus and took it home with us. Tonight's dinner was at a traditional Greek restaurant by the port. The octopus and seafood salad were yummy! Somehow we fitted in an ice cream.Read more

    Lazy day in Greece

    July 18, 2017 in Greece

    The wind today was extreme! We walked down the road to the local winery for some tastings and a cheese platter. We were surprised that the wines were OK! Lunch was our favourite - gyros!! We spent the afternoon lounging by the pool and I finished my book, Big Little Lies whilst enjoying Aperol Spritz. Jake and Ali cooked up another dinner feast followed by Ouzo.

    Friday in Paros

    July 21, 2017 in Greece

    Dad and I went on a scooter ride to Kolibithres beach which had a tiny bit of protection from the wind. We stayed awhile and caught the ferry back to Naousa. Lunch was gyros and saganaki, the best! The afternoon was spent lazing around the pool, drinking Aperol Spritz and reading my book. We went out for dinner at a popular restaurant in town by the water. The food was amazing!! Mussels, saganaki cheese, sesame toasted feta with a honey glaze and a whole fish were highlights! This was our last family dinner before we all head our seperate ways.Read more
