    Car trip around Paros

    July 19, 2017 in Greece

    We hired a mini bus today to explore the island. Grace had organised for us to meet up with Ellie McDonald, Georgie and Wendy Dodd in the mountain village Lefke They were running super late so we had coffee and cake outside a big old church, before they arrived for a quick chat. We drove past a number of beaches and had lunch at the seaside town Aliki. Swordfish, cheese donuts and squid were the highlights. We stopped at a protected beach for a swim as the day was super windy. We stopped at a beach bar where i had a pina colada and the others had a swim. We drove to the Port town Parkia to see the sunset. We noticed Georgie, Wendy and Ellie walking past so they joined us for drinks and St Mary's and Jamieson reminiscing! It was after 11:30pm by the time we ate gyros for dinner!Read more

    "My hope, inspired by this painting, is that our grandchildren will be able to live and grow in peace."

    All Hopes:
    I hope that me life will be colourful and light.

    a sign and question's....!!??

    Never give up hope!

    I see the bread, the water and the script, and in that my hope is for the hunger of the body to become a thing of the past. The hunger of the spirit will help us to achieve that.

    My hope, inspired by this painting, is that our grandchildren will be able to live and grow in peace.

    Every day when I get up, I feel the energy of hope, that makes me getting up. The hope for a peaceful, lovely, interesting day with a lot of good news.

    Hopes for the plants and universe to always be there for us.

    I hope for love peace & happiness. There are many sections in life to be fulfilled.

    I am hoping to continue to develop as an artist. This sharing helps to remind me what art is for. I want to be a part of that!

    I put my hope in picture # 049.

    It reminds me of flowers and a message of hope for growth in our lives.

    How beautiful! I hope this time I will be the winner... My hope is to be finally completely absorbed in love - with the ONE I love...

    “You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.” John Lennon. Maybe a project like this helps to realize a little bit of this hope.

    This painting reminds me of the beautiful islands of Greece. I hope to visit it again sometime, soon!

    First impression was, that I recognize the word “OMA". My sons have wonderful wives and my hope is, to be granny."

    This reminds me of when I look at the machines and technology of today I have to hope that it will work! Living on a Greek island that is one of the most important hopes of the day! It is a lovely reminder of this hope.

  • Day48

    Mykonos to Paros, Greece

    May 20, 2017 in Greece

    Ferry strike was over! We had a yummy breakfast at the hotel, lazed by the pool one last time as the weather was beautiful today ☀️😍 the hotel shuttle dropped us at the ferry port. We were scheduled to leave at 1.50pm but didn't leave until 3.15pm 😬😬😬 but nonetheless, at least we're on our way!
    Shortly before arriving at the port, you get told to head down to the garage to collect your baggage... Everyone standing there reminds me of the final scene from the movie 2012 when they're waiting for the arks shutters to open. Felt like I was in the movie 😂🛳️
    The Polos Hotel Paros collected us from the port and we checked in straight away - room upgrade YAY! 😎🏨
    We hit the pool straight away for some sunbaking and swimming, the pool was absolutely freezing but I braved it for a second 🏅
    In the evening we walked to town which is only 5 minutes away on the waterfront. We found a cute little restaurant for dinner and we had... Gyros again! 😋😋😋

    HOTEL - Polos Hotel, Paros
    INCLUSIONS - Breakfast and WIFI
    ROOM - Very spacious, balcony overlooking street, clean & daily modern
    LOCATION - Right near the beach/water, five minute walk to town.
    BONUS - Room upgrade! And swimming pool 🏊‍♂️

    Paros, Greece (Day Three)

    May 22, 2017 in Greece

    Lazy day today by the pool (falling asleep and getting burnt) yeooouch 😦 bit of exploring the town then more relaxing. 😊
    Wish we had another day to explore the island a bit more, our original plan of four nights would have been perfect but because of the ferry strike our stay was cut short. We'll just have to come back again! It's such a peaceful place, not as touristy as the other islands! 🏖️
