The Greek Story - Lonesome Island
Posted on Saturday, October 07, 2006
I'm still sorting my photos and thoughts about my Greek vacation. I am not to keen to write a long review like story about our time in Greece so I thought I would throw one or two photos out for you and tell you about it. What do you think? Is that a good idea or would you prefer a longer story?
This was taken on a ferry to the island of Zakynthos. The island looked so peaceful and lonesome. A perfect place to hide out for a few days when the world around gets hard. In the background you can see the mountains of Zakynthos.
We decided to go on a day trip to discover a bit of our surroundings. Well it was not very difficult to decide where to go as we had a gorgeous view of Zakynthos from our hotel which was in Loutra Kylini on the western coast of the Peloponnese. Loutra Kylini has actually been a well known and recognized spa area for quite a few centuries. Furthermore, it was also awarded the European Blue Flag for the cleanest beaches and sea this year.
The hotel packed a nice lunch box for each of us and we set of to the Kyllini harbor a few minutes drive from Loutra Kylini. It is a one hour transfer (and a EUR 43 charge - one way!!) with the ferry and on the way we had a few spectacular photo ops. It was a bit hazy but I did my best to get a few nice pictures.
It was our second day in the Peloponnese and we were already in love with the place. The first day we spent just relaxing on the pool and the beach of the hotel and eating like real hogs. More on the hotel and the fun on the pool in another post.
In the meantime enjoy the pictures. By clicking on them you can view them in a larger format. They are more impressive!
