What I learned on Paxos

What I learned on Paxos

Another standard feature after a vacation and done now already numerous times (for other posts of “What I learned in …” please click here or here), here is what I learned on Paxos: 1.) I really prefer the Greek isles where you have to go by ferry to the ones with an airport. Less tourists, …

The doors of Paxos

The doors of Paxos

Always when I travel to a new place I try to capture the doors of the city I am in. They usually give a unique view on the place. Here are the doors of Paxos then, including some garden doors (for other features in the door series click here and here). Yours, Pollybert

Saying goodbye to Greece

Saying goodbye to Greece

All good things must come to an end and so was our vacation here on Paxos. We had to move be out of our cozy home until 10am which was kind of early but no biggie. What annoyed me though was that the cleaning lady started her work in our garden already at 9:15. The …

Last night on Paxos

Last night on Paxos

After a wonderful day on the cruise boat with Captain Yiannis we needed some time to relax at home and also to apply copious amounts of after-sun lotion. We had arranged dinner with Lili at a restaurant that we had passed for days since it was set right next to the water front and on …

Party Cruise to Antipaxos

Party Cruise to Antipaxos

Of course the day was not ending at all. After cruising around Paxos all morning we made our way to Antipaxos. The afternoon was spent on this small island where we had a real sandy beach. Until now it was mostly rocks or pebble beaches, so have a sandy beach impressed us immensely. The turquoise …

Party Cruise around Paxos

Party boat day! We had booked two seats for a tour to Tripitos, the Blue Caves and Antipaxos with a charming Greek captain and arrived shortly before the allotted time to get the tickets. The theme was classic cruises and I had no idea what to expect. So much better than to find out the Captain …

Our Song by Dani Atkins: The first part is definitely a beach read, light and fluffy and a romantic love story while for the second part you rather want to stay home (if you are like me and cry easily). It’s a sob feast. I had to stop reading at least three or four times because …

Lakka again

Lakka again

After an almost sleepless night (no breeze and hot temperatures in the cottage and Andrea who was always cold and was not happy with the fan) for me, we woke up to do another workout and then had again coffee in the garden. So well deserved after sweating and being sporty early in the morning. …

Tripitos

Tripitos

We had settled on a special program for today. No gymnastics in the morning but a walk to the Tripitos. When I looked up the sights of the island this and the Blue Caves were the things that looked the most interesting. One can only spend so much time on the beach. So the evening …

Lakka

Lakka

We started again into the day with our workout routine. I can see you shaking your heads in amazement, mine is doing the same right now. Can’t believe we really did that. But a day in the bikini is a “hefty” motivation. Andrea was becoming an accomplished plank turner (these crazy exercises we were doing, …
