So here I am getting ahead of myself on a sunny Wednesday morning. Next door is blasting out his ‘Your 100 Favourite Bass Lines’ album, the cat has no idea where he wants to settle, and I am full of the cold and have to get some hovering done. But before that I thought I […]

Yesterday we were rummaging around the dragons of Symi in the old fortification of Drakos in the area of Drakou. Today we’re still in the same area but with some photos by Neil that show other parts of our walk. For example: we started by coming into the Pedi valley from the road where some […]

I am getting into the habit of writing these blogs the day before they are posted and it seems to be suiting me. It means I am half a day late with any exciting news though, but as I don’t often have exciting news that should not be a problem. Actually, there is some mildly […]

Continuing our walk to St Vasilis

I am actually writing this on Tuesday. There have been military jets passing by, church bells ringing and, down in Yialos, the parade for Greek Independence Day. Now there is thunder rumbling about and the skies are darkening. Not so on Sunday when we walked down to the bay at St Vasilis and back. As […]

First of all, before we set off, can we get the spelling sorted? I have two maps in front of me; one names the area we are walking to as Ag. Vassilios, the other as Agiou Vasiliou (in the genitive, fine, but with only one s) and, in the Greek, Αγ. Βασίλειος, again with one […]
