Farewell Poros and onto Aegina with a visit to Angistri (Agistri)

I didn’t feel sad leaving Poros as I knew I would be back.  Because I am writing this three years after the event I know that I DO return to Poros just two months later. Anyhoo it is time to leave and head to Aegina. The Apollon Hellas appears from somewhere near Kimomeni’s shoulder and …

Epidaurus and then on to Poros – and a Strange Coincidence!

We meet Magnus and breakfast again.  We confirm plans to meet at the bus station the follow day to catch the bus to Galatas. Today we are visiting Epidaurus by bus.  The Peloponnese really does have an excellent bus service and I hope that my series of posts demonstrates  that you don’t need to hire …

Whilst on my travels I’ve realised that it is important to know when to give up on trying to “blog on the go” and actually enjoying the experience.  It really does take a lot of effort capturing your thoughts and feelings on some kind of digital medium and not to mention downloading and sorting through …

Trying to Get to Tyros by Bus on Good Friday!

This morning we woke at 7am.  Everywhere is quiet and from our balcony all we can hear are the bird chirping, the chickens scratching away in the olive grove and the church bells. Katerina was up and sitting in the office where we wish her Kali Anastasi. When we had arrived back at Katerina’s Studios …
