To the beach

in OCD4 months ago

I saw a picture of a wooden "TO THE BEACH" sign, posted by @bil.prag today and I got jealous! So my turn to do a little bit archive digging and reminiscing of my trip to Andros, one of the most popular Greek islands! The boat trip from the port of Rafina was just a couple of hours and the first thing to do when I arrived was to pay my respects to the "Gold Beach" :)

I am not usually make accommodation proposals but boutique hotel Eleni is a place to remember, filled with the history of the island and I could not omit it from my story!

Walking around Chora is a constant reminder of the glorious past of the island. The plethora of impressive mansions (renovated or not) are the undeniable signs of the wealth of the inhabitants when Andros was a major shipping center and hometown of some of the biggest Greek shipowners.

Nowadays is a beautiful destination for relaxing vacations close to nature but with a cosmopolitan vibe at the same time! If you ever come to Greece you may want to consider a short (or long) visit there, I am sure it won't let you down!

Ευχαριστώ!

Beautiful and peaceful place.

Thank you @noopu for stopping by, it is a very peaceful place indeed :)

You're welcome. :)

I still don't get why rich people don't move to Greece after stacking like mad men... I would definitely do that. Would lend an apartment in Norway as well but, Greece is spectacular.

With the weather changing like crazy, Norway will probably be a better choice in a few years!
But I am sure that once you'll get the cash, you'll find the best place to spend it :)

Hi Stefanos! Greece is bright and interesting! Your photos are so beautiful that I would go in the travel right now!
