Travel Blogs from Paros
So for my somewhat final leg of my first summer traveling escapade, I met a really good friend and spent a couple of days in Mykonos, Greece. Not much to say besides that it was amazing. The people were friendly and beautiful and the food was incredible. Not to sound like Capt. Diva but the beaches were not as amazing as I expected, but the party scene certainly was. Felt a little too old for all the parties as I was ...
... last morning in Naxos we would make for a beach a little further afield. This morning we boarded a quick 20 minute bus to Agia Anna. While quite similar to St. George's beach near us, this was nevertheless a good change of scenery. As a plus this beach had ample lounging chairs which help save me from becoming a human sand dune by lying on my beach towel yet again.

As the conditions were rather unpleasant we decided to motor to the closest protected bay. We followed s/v Onset with Bill at the helm. He had sailed this waters before and he guided us around and between a few small rocks to a protected anchorage. We dropped anchor at 12:30 behind Wave Runner, who had left early ...
... he showed us directions and which way to take to reach the hotel. When we got there, he explained to us the direction to reach the main road along the sea. The big supermarket (market-in) is also a short 3 mins walk from the hotel. Margarita greeted us as we arrived and showed us our room with a map of Paros and where to go.
