Skopelos Warms Up

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Ιούλιος 25, 2017 – 12:20 πμ

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.

Παραλία & Πισίνα

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Αύγουστος 12, 2016 – 1:06 πμ

Η παραλία στη Λυγιά έχει καθαρά και ήρεμα νερά. Ο ήλιος έλαμψε όλη την ημέρα και έκανα ζέστο. Κάναμε μπάνιο στην θάλασσα και εγώ διάβασα το βιβλίο μου στην παραλία.

Για 2 εβδομάδες μένουμε σε διαμέρισμα στη Λυγιά (Δωμάτια Πολυξένη). Η Λυγιά βρίσκεται στην ανατολική ακτή της Λευκάδας (απέναντη από την ηπειρωτική χώρα). Ταξιδέψαμε από Αερολιμένας Πρέβεζας με ταξί.

Questions still hang over Norman Atlantic disaster

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Δεκέμβριος 28, 2015 – 4:13 μμ

It was the early hours of December 28, 2014. The Norman Atlantic ferry boat was on its way from the Greek port of Patra to Ancona in Italy, via Igoumenitsa in northwestern Greece, when a fire broke out on the car deck, soon turning the ship unto a flaming stage of tragedy.
