Greek fairy-tale on Amorgos

Since English summer is rather underwhelming and I’m not getting anywhere close to a warm sea this year, it was a pleasure to go through last year’s photos from Amorgos. Many thanks to our Greek friends, especially Iakovos and Nikos for making this trip possible.

A moment of serenity…

Welcoming, crystal clear water makes me wish I wasn’t in England.

Mediterranean dining with style…

Most important source of meat and milk.

The little fort of Chora towers above the village.

The island of Amorgos isn’t very concerned about rising sea levels…

Hozoviotissa monastery is mostly tunneled inside the rock. It was wonderfully cool in there.

And finally, we depart. It was a relief to see the ferry arrive, amidst the worst of Greek strikes.
