Another island I’ve visited in Greece! This time it was Hydra‘s turn, a special island where there are no motorized vehicles! Or you cycle (I didn’t see any bikes), or you take a donkey…, or you do like myself, and you walk.
Usually I like to leave my plans open, but in the past I had some not so good experiences. But it is with those experiences that we learn how to avoid the same mistakes to happen again. For this trip, the plan wasn’t for just one country, but for a whole area. A trip of 10 days crossing the Balkans.
And two more greek islands to the list! This time I went to Skiathos and Skopelos, the Mamma Mia movie islands (a movie I haven’t seen yet). It was a well worth long weekend!
The article below is a translation of an old article about Greece that I have deep down inside my memories chest, considering it’s still one of my most viewed articles in Portuguese, I decided to translate it to English and share it with everyone! I tried to keep the same voice as the original version, in Portuguese, but some of these “facts” were mostly my perception of things when I was living there.
Being back from an adventure through the Balkans, it’s time to start writing about it. My first article of this series is about the route I took from Zagreb to Athens, the places I passed through and the reasons why.
One of my plans was to visit one of the Cyclades islands, so I thought, why not the capital island? That’s how I decided over Syros, though I almost stayed in Athens… Thankfully it seems I am blessed with luck, and that led to acquiring a new nickname, Big Ass!
