The last couple of days the Sun in Syros has been quite strong, and I’ve not really done much other than go to the beach.
It was a very hot afternoon; Syros might only be a few miles across the water from Tinos but the weather always seems so different.
Today I drove to the North of Tinos, to visit Rochari / Ροχάρη beach.
Last time we were on Tinos 4 years ago we did a coach tour of the island, and I wanted to re-vist a couple of the places we went to.
I’m now on my second Greek island this holiday and for the next 6 days I’m in the Cyclades. I’ve got 3 nights on Τήνος/Tinos, followed by 3 nights on Σύρος/Syros.
Today has been a long day on the road – my car’s GPS records show it was 9hrs 31mins of driving time, plus stops with added 1hr 50min to that. I’ve covered nearly 500 miles in a single day!
Today I’ve done my own self-guided tour of Thassos and have driven a whole lap of the island.
I had almost forgotten what it is like to come to Thassos outside of high season. The last few times we’ve come here have all been during school holidays in July/August, when it is extremely busy.…
On the way in to Keramoti – it’s not often this happens – I got stuck behind a slow moving Audi.
After settling in to my caravan, I went out to get the waterbus in to Venice. A 20 minute boat ride later, I was in the middle of Venice, walking next to the Grand Canal towards St Mark’s Square.
