Stroll on the cobblestone pathways, enjoy a greek coffee at the ”kafeneio” – the local coffee shop- visit the folklore museum, the church Agia Marina with its beautiful Byzantine icon paintings of saints and enjoy ( by becoming part of the Greek evening) local traditional community.
Dazed by the heat, you get up from the sunbed and stand up. Your feet are heavy, due to the winter’s exhausting lifestyle. You walk two steps into the thick sand and your feet are eager to enter the blue sea. Overlooking Tragonisi, you take a long scuba dive to cool yourself. Once you come back to the surface, life has a different, optimistic perspective.
