Sunset hour: Castle & Lakki
Mylos fish restaurant - Agia Marina
This year, our summer holidays was for first time too early... Just in the first days of July! In 10 days, we managed to fit two different destinations. A three day trip to North Evia to attend a wedding and then departure straight away for Athens to catch the plane for Leros, which was departing at dawn.
In our beloved island we spend the rest 7 days of our holidays enjoying the sea, the sun and delicious sea food.... What I liked most this year, was the calmness that prevailed everywhere in the island!(Unfortunately, because of the Greek people difficult economic situation and the capital controls which have just been implemented in the country). Ιt was magnificent to get up early in the morning and walk along to the sea coast, listening only to the light sound of the ripples. After a lot hours of swimming and sunbathing in the pure and crystal water of the island and taking pictures of everything around me, it was time to go back in the everyday life... This is always a hard time!!!
During August, we had also the opportunity for a short break of two days in Marmari with some friends and then we spent all of the rest August weekends swimming in Attica's beaches all day long with the company of our beloved friends...
In a few words, it was a great summer which offered me the relaxation I needed after two very difficult years and such a gruelling winter, giving me the opportunity to come again close to people I couldn't see during the last two years, due to lack of time.
