Night sky

When did you see the night sky last time ? the sky incrusted densely with the stars so that it becomes white, so that you don’t need any light?

Well, if you do not remember this moment, you have to take a boat from Kymê on Euboia which will take you to Skyros, Sporades, and after arrival head to its north-western part. You will go south next time, first enjoy the pine forest that covers the nothern half of this tiny island the port of which meets you with pompous (and funny) orchestra music.

Go ahead and find a place on one of the beaches, and spend a night or two there. Listen to the sound of the wind in πεύκα, pine trees, to the waves, look deep into the sky – it is extremely generous during the night – and try not to fall asleep as long as you can.

And after all, the next morning, visit the miniature church by the sea, Κυρά Παναγιά.

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.
