    Off to Paros!

    October 3 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Paros is a beautiful island in the Cyclades region and my first stop on my island hopping tour. I lived in a very cute studio here and jumped on public buses to get around the island 🤗 I must say, Greek beaches are so amazing, why haven't I been here before?Read more

    Parikia

    November 1, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We went to the capital and largest city in Paros, Parikia. City may be a bit of a stretch, though, more like a large town. We walked around the water front, admiring some large sailboats and catamarans and then went up the street to the Church With a Hundred Doors. It is a complex of chapels and a large church. The most impressive part was a chapel built in the 4th century with a Baptistery, a stone immersion tub in the shape of a cross. There was a Byzantine museum as well, with works of art from the 15th century onward. The large church had a women's gallery where you could look down into the main worshipping area. Like other Greek Orthodox churches we have peeked into ( they are usually locked), it had a huge brass chandelier, about 10 feet across, with candles on several levels.
    Just down the street was the Archeological Museum, with statues and artifacts found all over the island.
    We also visited the remains of a Venetian Fort. The Venetians ruled here from the 1300's to the 1500's. All the towns here have narrow alleys to walk through the old town, and Parikia was no different. Some shops were open, but because by this time it was after lunch, most were closed for siesta which generally goes from 1:00 til 5:30. It is also the end of the season, so some are closed until next spring. Parikia is on the opposite side of the island from Drios where we are, so we went there in one direction and returned in the other, completing a circumnavigation of the island.

    Paros

    October 21, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We are here for two nights as again forecast not great and then we plan on heading towards Sifnos then Serifos as we head back towards the mainland. I took a gentle jog this morning and we are now wandering the streets of the old town or ‘ancient settlement’ as it is labelled on the street signs. It is picturesque as is usual for Greece there are a lot of churches winding alleys white buildings and bougainvillea, though not many flowers left on some of it. Will post this for now but may add to it later.Read more

    Livadhi - Paroikia ( Paros )

    September 1, 2007 in Greece ⋅ 32 °C

    Nachdem ich gestern die korrodierten Kabelverbindungen ersetzte, lief der Anlasser wieder und dafür kam kein Kühlwasser aus dem Abgasrohr. Also, Wasserpumpe abmontieren und siehe da, das gleiche Problem wie in
    Kroatien., ein Stift war gebrochen. Mittlerweile kein Problem mehr für uns.
    Wir starteten heute morgen mit frischem Wind aus Südost und konnten 1 Stunde wunderbar segeln.
    Danach wieder windstill und das Meer wurde zum Ententeich.
    Etwa in der Mitte der Strecke begegneten wir einer Delfinschule, die ca. 15 Tümmler zeigten uns ein paar Kunststücke und zogen danach weiter.
    2 sm vor Paros kamen plötzlich 3 Tümmler auf uns zu und schwammen eine Weile vor unserem Bug.
    Sogar Louis streckte den Kopf weit hinaus, um sie zu sehen.
    In Paroikia legten wir römisch- katholisch an der Aussenmole des Hafens an.
