Greece, travel

Αλόννησος. Alonissos

I am sure some of you if not many are already planning their summer holidays in Greece.

Some travel tips would probably help you with the place choice and the way of getting to it.

Sporades are, no doubt, worth visiting. They are situated to the north-east from Evia.

Let’s take Alonnisos. A very green island othewise called Liadromia has numerous fantastic beaches. The fastest and the cheepest way to get there is by a ferry from the tiny port Kymasi, Mantoudi, on the Evia island. One way trip per person costs around 20 euros.

For sure, you will find many rental proposals. Air_bnb has some good options: the householders propose their apartments from 33 euros per night. The prices on the Booking_com are reasonable as well: from 45 euros per night. Greek real estate sites have got nice choice, like a villa for 73 euros per night.

Here is an aerial video from Alonnisos island.

Sougia, April 2009

Once upon a time, I came to Sougia just for one night. That was one of the most ridiculous and funniest trips like those when you come somewhere and can’t stop laughing. Because of a kind of absurdity which is difficult to explain. Sougia, that’s roughly a few houses and a beach between the rocks, on the southern Crete. The tiny village where I came by bus from Chania in the afternoon and understood straight away upon my arrival that there was nothing to do. But that’s a nice place for doing nothing.

There were a few Greeks at the bus stop, who hoped for some tourists. I asked how much would be your room. 11 euros, one said. Ok, let’s go. It was 50 meters from the sea, in the building the first floor of which occupied the local police office.

The room of an hermit like me was very small, but I only needed a bed.

I had some time before sunset for a walk towards the ancient Lissos, not enough though to reach it and to come back.

Better to come here early in the morning. The next day, I had to return with the first bus to Chania…

Limited budget

I’ve regularly visited Greece for vacations since Crimea is occupied. As I am a student having only a part-time job in Paris, I have to think carefully of how to spend my limited resources. My first apartment in Greece that I rented three years ago for only one month, July, 2015, had 2 bedrooms, a living room with a kitchen, a balcony with the view to the bay, bathroom & WC with everything you need there. The hosts, a Greek couple with a lot of children, asked 600 euros for this.

Next time I found a much bigger apartment for a much lower price which I will not tell you 🙂 There is no view but two floors and a tiny back yard. I come there back with my friend again and again. And we’re dreaming about staying there at least three months. Our maximum was 2.5… It’s never, never enough. The flat is not quiet, however: cats, dogs, roosters, cars and neighbours… But it’s so nostalgic.
