Kassandra’s middle of nowhere

agios_nikolaos_churchIf you’re searching for a quiet place, go to Agios Nikolaos. There is no proper description for it. It’s not a village, it’s not a beach, it’s not a camping spot. It’s simply a place.

There is a small church on a low promontory, equipped with a bell. You could pull the string, if you dare. From there, you might like to stare at Sithonia and Athos. There is little else to do.

There is a fishing village nearby, but don’t go there, you’ll just scare the locals. You could also fish, the place is ideal for such an endeavour.

How to get there ? Easy. Go to Paliouri, and on the east side of the village you’ll find a road sign that says Gallini/Agios Nikolaos.

When the road ends, you will have reached Agios Nikolaos, Kassandra’s middle of nowhere.





Someone please tell me I’m wrong

My intention to move to Greece is just as strong, after a day of confronting Romanian bureaucracy, agressive drivers and all those nasty things that make up my life here. I know I’m heading towards some new kinds of abuse, but.. the air, the sea, the breeze… bring it on !

Now, let’s see what this madman is raving about, you may ask. Well, let’s!

I have a list of… towns I guess one may call them.

Agios Nikolaos, Ormylia, Nikiti and Polygyros, in that order. All in Halkidiki. Next on the list are the main towns villages in Sithonia, but something tells me it’s not such a good ideea.

So, go on, tell me I’m insane to want to live in those places. You may abuse me verbally. It won’t bother me. Prove me wrong.
