Well, maybe not that much news but a few interesting notes and messages to leave you with over the weekend. Firstly, let’s go back to those earthquakes…

put out a piece a couple of days ago titled: “Volcanic activity suspected off Turkey’s coast: A new submarine volcanic eruption might have recently started off Turkey’s west coast in the Marmaris Sea between the mainland and the Greek Island of Symi near Rhodes. Scientists from Istanbul’s Technical University announced that they have found evidence of two active vents at about 200 m water depth along a north-south trending fissure 2.5-3 km long.” Apparently the temperature of the sea rose slightly, which might be good news for swimmers. The full story can before found here
A note from Symi a la Carte
If you are thinking of a holiday on Symi later in the year and want to treat yourself to something special, then you might like to consider a property from Symi a la Carte. The company website is being worked on and, currently, the only Symi properties showing on it are Villa Laza & Laza Penthouse, but it is now possible to book these directly, on-line. Of course, they offer many other beautiful accommodations too. The company tells me: “Unfortunately at the moment, our other properties are still only available upon request but can be looked at on the following website:” And the website is Paxos a la Carte.
You should check with the company for full details, prices and availability to get the fully up to date information.
