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

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

Icon Written by Φρεντ Χαρτ on Ιούλιος 20, 2017 – 11:49 μμ

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.
