Boat Trip by Bus

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Αύγουστος 2, 2017 – 12:35 πμ

Our last day was meant to be spent on a boat. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great – although the Sun was shining, it was extremely windy: more than just a gentle breeze particularly on the East coast of the island.

Sunset and Skopelos

On Saturday evening we drove over to the West coast of Skopelos, for a late afternoon swim at Μηλιά/Milia, before driving along to Πάνορμος/Panormos to have dinner at a spot where we could see the sunset.



Passing Summer Storm

Thursday was a cool and overcast day, and the wind was up. Not really a beach day, so in the morning we went in to town to have a proper walkabout there, have a drink with a view, and top up on supplies.

Σκόπελος: The Island of Mamma Mia

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Ιούλιος 27, 2017 – 12:28 πμ

Σκόπελος/Skopelos is the island on which Mamma Mia was filmed several years ago (was it really as far back as 2008!?). In fact, our accommodation in Στάφυλος/Stafylos was where some of the cast and crew stayed during filming.

Skopelos Warms Up

There are several tavernas along the beach front in Agnondas and we chose the ‘Mouria’ to eat at. It was still daylight and not long past 7 by the time we left the beach to go and eat – early for us as we usually don’t eat until 8.30/9 by which time the sun has already set.

Around Στάφυλος Village

After travelling yesterday, we didn’t go far today. Breakfast was a buffet at the pool bar, with a good selection of things to choose from: Greek yoghurt, bread, ham, cheese, loukoumades (honey balls), cake, biscuits, croissants, hard boiled eggs. I had a bit of everything!

Safely arrived in Σκόπελος

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Ιούλιος 19, 2017 – 10:30 μμ

I spent much of the early part of the flight looking out the window spotting places I’d been: Calais could be seen clearly as could Brussels, much of the German Rheinland and Bavaria. I gazed out the window for hours longing to be down on the ground driving the Autobahns and Bundesstraßen, radio playing loud and windows rolled down – much better than being stuck in a tin can, even if like today there were quite a few empty seats.
