White walls, blue doors and windows, stone, marble and vines. Painted tables, comfy chairs, Wi-Fi, seagulls and an alarm clock sheepishly blaring the sounds I had almost forgotten. Someone just woke up and snoozed it.
We’re somewhere inside the maze of Naxos Chora and I bet the stairs I’m looking at are in fact a street. I can hear the sounds of the harbor. Blue Star Ferry Paros has just left. In 6 days, I’ll be on it, probably sad and wishing to return.
I’ve just witnessed the horror of a lizard attacking and chewing a fly.
As for ourselves, we’ll go look for an English breakfast, a tradition in Cyclades.
A, I notice someone has a red window. Communists. They’re everywhere.
Naxos is the biggest island in the Cyclades. .. Never mind the description, here’s how it looks.
How to reach it ?
We chose Blue Star Ferries. 2 adults plus car. 297 Euro return. Try their website. Also, GreekFerries. I might add that on the Blue Star Ferries website you might just find a proper schedule. Prices seem fixed, no “early bird” offers, nada.
Hotel ? No, thanks. It’s an inn. Try the GuestInn website. 6 nights, 240 Euro.
robbery fees between Thessaloniki and Athens ? 40 Euro return.
Cost of gas ? 1.7 Euro/liter, 1200 km in all. About 130 Euro return for a small car, no aggressive driving, highway mostly.
Perhaps a flight would be cheaper ? Not for us, we love driving.
