    Patmos

    October 15 in Greece

    We had thought we would be almost surfing our way south to Patmos but once we were clear of Fournoi there was next to no wind so a lovely cruise south to Patmos where we went onto the Town Quay unassisted! This is in a large natural harbour with one town at the port the other main town is called Chora and is up the hill. So we have now visited the’Cave of the Apocalypse’ St Johns Monastery, Patmos windmills, Ancient Kastelli and more churches than you can shake a stick at. Here are some photos the next post will just be more photos.Read more

    More Patmos photos

    Yesterday in Greece

    Wax blocks at Monastery for candles we assume
    John being very enthusiastic about braces that can be pulled across inside of Monastery doors to prevent entry.
    Looking up at floor of Monastery room from alley underneath looks a bit like wattle and daub
    Two pretty views in Skala at bottle of hill
    Back of the Patmos windmills two of which date from 16th century, other must be replica?

    Kos

    August 23 in Greece

    Die Tage auf Kos waren ziemlich entspannt, viel gab es auch nicht zu tun. Am Strand relaxen, durch Kos Stadt laufen, hier und da essen gehen, etwas überteuerte Ruinen anschauen & den ein oder anderen Cocktail trinken.
    Lena flog am 18.08 wieder zurück nach Deutschland - War ein schöner Urlaub :)

    Lange blieb Ich jedoch nicht alleine, Chris der auch schon in der Mongolei mit dabei war ist Abends noch auf Kos gelandet, Ich holte ihn ab und wir fuhren direkt an den Strand.

    Um von Kos runterzukommen wollten wir am nächsten Tag eine Fähre nach Piräus (direkt bei Athen) buchen - diese war allerdings für die nächsten 4 Tage ausgebucht...
    Wir machten das beste daraus und gingen zum Formel 1 Schauen in eine Bar.
    Als wir da so in der Bar bei einem Bier saßen meldete sich ganz spontaner Besuch aus Hamburg von Theresa an - ca. 5h Später standen wir wieder am Flughafen und waren nun die nächsten 4 Tage zu 3. unterwegs...

    Halbe Inselrundfahrt 4

    October 13 in Greece

    Zum Sonnenuntergang sind wir an die Windmühlen über Mykonos Stadt gefahren. Idyllisch, jedoch sehr viele Touristen. Fazit des Tages. Die Insel ist eine Steinwüste die sich durch Party und entzückender weissen Häuschen und Gässchen hervorragend verkauft.

  • Day2

    Nach der Ankunft Mietwagen geholt, und hinter Maren hergefahren zum sehr schönen Appartement wo uns auch 3 Katzen erwarten die irgendwie dazu gehören. Dann waren wir am alten Hafen was essen. Danach "heim". Wir waren froh es gefunden zu haben! Foto's dann morgen! Weil : Das Bett ruft laut!

    Reifen geplatzt.

    October 15 in Greece

    Am Nachmittag war schwimmen geplant. Aber während der Parkplatzsuche ist der Reifengeplatzt. Da half nur eines. Notrad montieren. Zum Glück kann Jannis so was. Wir sind dann gleich Auto tauschen gefahren. Weiter geht es mit einem Nissan Micra.

    Elia Beach

    Yesterday in Greece

    Wir sind dann weiter gefahren um die östlichen Strände zu sehen. Elia ist schön und sauber. Es hat eine schicke Strandbar. Nachdem wir einen Weile die Liegen genutzt hatten kam der Keller und wir entscheiden weiter zu fahren. Die netten Liegen sollen 30€/Tag + Getränke kosten.

    Syros - Hermoupolis

    August 28 in Greece

    Today we woke to cloud cover, the first we have experienced for ages, so decided we could risk some sightseeing and headed by bus to Hermoupolis, the island’s main town. The bus took a fairly circuitous route and we have now seen most of the west coast of Syros and can confirm that there are some lovely rental apartments and boutique hotels. Hermoupolis was bigger than I had expected with a large dry dock, various ferry docks a town quay and a couple of marinas. We mooched around the old town and climbed the hill to one of the many churches ⛪, we also looked at quite a few others before managing to buy some GF bread for Johns breaker tomorrow. For the last couple of days he has had to have a GF granola cereal, for him that’s a big step 😉.Read more

    Finikas on Syros

    August 28 in Greece

    Hello again
    Well the trip from Lavrion passed without incident, we went from the bay, where we left the boat and did some more supermarket shopping, to Olympic Marina to fill up with fuel and water then headed south east around the bottom of Nisos Makronisos. This island is long and thin with very little vegetation, we did see goats and the remains of properties but none seemed to be inhabited. We arrived at Nisos Kea and anchored with quite a few others in Ormos Pisses which our pilot book incorrectly told us would provide shelter from the Southerly swell. There was a lot of new development on the island but unlike the concrete cubes and villas on the mainland coast this was much more sympathetic with a lot of it being stone clad and blending well. Wehad an enjoyable afternoon dipping in and out of the water and settled for the night. Unfortunately by 0500, the swell was getting really uncomfortable, not quite at the point where we were rolling out of bed but things we had left on the draining board were falling over so we were up before the sun ☀️ and heading south down the coast of Kea and then South East to Nisos Kythnos and we anchored up in the first bay we came to on the east side of the island being Ormos Loutra sheltered from the south by Ag Ioannis headland, we were there by 0800. It was a lovely location, a couple of houses on the valley sides, one in the bay and of course the obligatory church/chapel on the headland. Again more sympathetic developments. We spent a full 24hours here swimming and snorkelling (there were actually a few different sorts of fish to see) before moving on to our current location Finikas on Nisos Syros. Syros is the capital of the Cyclades Islands and Finikas is a natural harbour on the West coast with good protection from the Meltemi, and this time the pilot book was right.Read more

    Ancient Delos

    September 4 in Greece

    Fortunately the wind had died by this morning so we motored around to Delos and anchored up so we could visit the ruins of Ancient Delos, they, the archaeologists and government, have partially restored the buildings and roads in some places so you get a really good feel for what life was like B.C. Delos was the site of both temples and towns so ordinary life as well as displays of grandeur. It is incredible what they could do 2000+ years ago with the big water reservoirs under each house and the water flows under the floor for fresh and not so fresh water. The views from the top of the hill, yes I made John climb it too, were beautiful you could see different islands in each direction and the turquoise water around the island itself were stunning we could see where we had been the night before, to the West, and Mýkonos Town to the North East.Read more
