    Mitten drin...

    October 23 in Greece

    ... Statt nur dabei 😃 nach dem ich zuerst dachte, ach du Schande in welchem Ghetto bin ich hier gelandet. Hat sich im Laufe des schlenderns durch die Stadt gezeigt, was es noch für schöne Ecke gibt. Hab in einem mega schönen Restaurant/Bar Mittag gegessen und hab die Griechen beobachtet 😉

    Aigina

    October 29 in Greece

    Well here we are just south of Athens, on the north coast of Aigina. The winds in Sifnos were strong Wednesday night into Thursday morning and during the day and initially were blowing us onto the quay but we winched up on the anchor and things were OK, the wind then changed direction so all was good, though still gusting strongly. Met a crowd of youngsters on boat next door, 2 of the 6 had experience but one of them had had to return to Athens for a few days and the remaining experienced guy was getting worried about getting the others back to Athens for their flights on Saturday. He wanted to leave on Thursday afternoon but it was still gusting force 8. We expected them to leave early Friday but they were still there when we left about 9 and we kept looking back but think they may have decided that a ferry from Sifnos would be easier than a very long day at sea.
    We travelled from Sifnos up the east coast of Serifos to end up on the NW corner of Kythnos just above the harbour it was a beautiful sheltered quiet anchorage on the east side of a sand bar. I have just looked for photo but can’t find it, very irritating. On Friday we were amazed at how clear the air was, the visibility was incredible. On the way to Sifnos we had been unable to see the island until we were a couple of miles off but when we left we could see East to Syros and Paros and west to the mainland of the Peloponnese.
    From Kythnos we headed back towards Olympic Marina on the mainland via the southern tip of Kea and Makronisis, to get fuel. We stopped off on the west coast of Makronisis, for what John says will be his last swim of the year, and to look more closely at some of the abandoned buildings. We had a good look around but have no more idea why the island is now next to uninhabited than we did before.
    During our stay at Lavrion anchored in our usual bay just North of town we managed to find some Johnnie bread, white but apparently OK, and a few other GF treats and just for good measure I baked some more carrot cupcakes.
    On leaving our anchorage we saw the container ship CSL Virginia, the one that was rammed by the Turkish ship back on the 10 th near Corsica. The whole is seriously impressive, we hadn’t heard about the crash and at first couldn’t believe we were seeing a hole!

    Egina town on Aigina island

    November 1 in Greece

    We enjoyed our time at Souvala on the North coast but felt a little bad about abusing their hospitality so have moved to the main town and harbour on the NW coast for a night before we head onwards. On our first full day on the island we used our push bikes and visited the Paleochora (ancient town) this is where the Aegean’s moved to when the pirate raids were too prolific on the coast. Now all that’s left here are the churches, the houses have been destroyed for the building material. There are an awful lot of churches/chapels and almost all contained icons candles etc, apparently there is a saint for everyday and its a sign of status for a family to build a church/chapel and they are all dedicated to a saint or two. Nowadays these family churches/ chapels are private but historically they were for everyone, and the higher and more obscure the location the greater the prestige. The photos show one side of the hill and a map showing the locations.
    After here we cycled first to the Monastery of Nektarios only to be greeted by a sign saying women in trousers and men in shorts were not allowed in! Really we are in the 21 century, we were going to go in anyway but had already visited 15 churches so decided to go for lunch instead. After some restorative food we rode to the Temple of Aria more up. This, the temple at Sounion and the Parthenon form a triangle apparently and on clear days you can see each from each, it wasn’t clear enough when we were there however.
    Yesterday we met up with Ashley and Kathy, Australian’s that we had met in Almerimar, their boat Windjammer was in one of the yards here for repairs after an incident in Poros. We were able to return Ashley’s beanie hat to him, he had forgotten it after one of the Sunday walks and Nev had given it to us as Windjammer had left Almerimar before us and we were both going to Greece! I must email him to let him know we did manage to deliver it eventually. We spent a lovely morning and evening with them hearing about their trip and experiences.

    Aigina - Ankerbier...

    October 22, 2017 in Greece

    und unsere heutige Übernachtungsbucht.
    Die Überfahrt nach Aigina - unter Segeln - verlief chillig, mit Sonnenbaden an Deck. Nach Ankunft waren wir Schnorcheln und Supn. Die ortsansässige Taverne wird geentert, die scheinbar nur für uns geöffnet hat. Sehr lecker und günstig. 😋

    Eigen appartement

    August 21, 2016 in Greece

    Na het ontbijt nemen we onze koffers mee naar Odyssey en zijn dan bewoners van een eigen appartement, 2 verdiepingen en een balkon met uitzicht op de zee. Later vanmiddag zullen Jan en Tony Aberson arriveren, deze mensen hebben we in 2010 op deze locatie leren kennen.
    Temperatuur is ruim 35°C, toch maar even zwemmen, heerlijk zeewater. Omdat het zondag is en we van het Grieks niets mee krijgen, hebben we naar een NL kerkdienst geluisterd over Lucas 4:31-41. Een dag, morgen, middag en avond mee opgetrokken met Jezus. Een bemoedigende boodschap zeker te bedenken dat Jezus alle zieken een voor een genas, hij zorgt dus voor ieder mens persoonlijk. Ook bestrijdt Hij het kwaad, dat was 's morgens in de synagoge.
    Smakelijk gegeten en een kleine wandeling en dan naar bed

    echt vakantie

    August 22, 2016 in Greece

    Broodjes halen, ontbijten en samen koffie drinken en dan een scooter huren. En gelijk maar een rondje rijden, niet te snel want alleen een T-shirt en korte broek bied weinig bescherming. Met 38° is het echt heet en daarbij, er is niemand die een helm op heeft. Je kunt de scooter overal parkeren en de sleutel er in laten zitten, niemand neemt hem mee.
    Even naar de winkels bij de haven om een hoed uit te zoeken voor jullie moeder, want ik heb een pet. En bij deze felle zonneschijn moet dit ook.
    Even bijkomen in het appartement waar de airco lekker koelt en natuurlijk verkoeling zoeken in de (zoute) zee. De laatste foto, cadeau tip voor Sietse?
