The rest of the Santorini caldera is very touristic, but keep some values and cultures, despite the mass of ferry and motorbike to rent everywhere. Some raisin culture in the countryside contrast with the usual -but still gorgeous- touristic colorful houses.

On the slopes of the hills, the typical white cycladic houses seems to look after the sea.

If we go in the north-est part of the island, we will discover really remote and arid landscape.

And, finally, the amazing bay of Vathi.

Like very often in the Greek islands, the people live mainly thanks to the goats, and tourism.

The little restaurant and guestroom of Vathi welcome mainly Greek people, who are looking for simple nature beauty, and calm atmosphere. In this part of the island, we really feel like at the end of the world.

Lévitha
January 152018

An island lost in the middle of Aegean sea. Most of the time, only 3 greek and 2 pakistanese live here. With hundred of goats.

The cheese of Levitha is famous and delicious. I never eat better and fresher cheese. Moreover, the place is magic of beauty, with small hills and the see in the background with its bay, creeks…

And furthermore, the people are the kindness embodied.

Only detail is : this pace that reside in this place is due to the isolation of the island. The only ways to go there is with the boat of the Levitha’s family, with your own boat or by boat-stop in some places like Astypalea, Amorgos or Kalymnos. The people who go in this place are more interested to live an experience than to do only touristic visit.

Symi
December 32017

Symi is a small island compare to others, of only 65 km squares for 2 600 people.
It’s beautiful by its cliffs, and its calm atmosphere. The climate is very arid and we can meet some difficulties to find wather in the summer, cause most of the sources are dry.

We arrive in Symi only by boat, from Rhodos. The ferry stop first in the amazing bay of Panormitis. This village is famous because of the Holy Monastery of Archangel Michael. The exact construction date is unknown but, according to an old manuscript, it existed in the 15th century. It is said that this monastery was built on the ruins of an ancient temple, but this has not been proved.

 

Panormitis is also a perfect refuge for the sailing boat.

The second and last stop of the ferry is Ano Symi, the bigger town of the island.

 

Trekking in these arid and desert  hills is complicated if you don’t want to follow the road.

Most of the hills are dominated by the presence of a huge amount of goats.

If you like the lost, calm, natural, authentic, and a bit touristic places, Symi can be really interesting for you !

Rhodos
December 32017

Rhodes is a touristic place. But in my opinion, it deserve totally.

The Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights is one of the most impressive and well conserved monument of the center.

 Around, you will find a nice city, with pretty little streets in old stones.

 

Near the sea, a charming path beside the castle wall bring you from the center to the port.

 

In this area, we find nightclub and car center.

 

 

We left here the touristic, stony, clean and beautiful castle’s areas, to entering in the popular Rhodes. Bad thongs will qualify it as dirty, I will say authentic. Here it’s the domain of roasted chestnuts and corn, schools, stray dogs… In one word, life.
