This is th eonly mode of ravel on this island
Now I have traveled on to island of Hydra. A very small rock island. How beautiful, a 1/2 hr ferry ride from Spetses. I found a place right away along the port with a balcony overlooking all the boats, ferries and village. It was so beautiful. If not walking around, I sat and watched the action. A young university Greek couple were next door, and after walking and eating, I sat and we all talked each on our own close balcony for 2 hours. We had a great time comparing countries and travels. On this island no vehicles except the town are allowed at all, not even scooters. They use donkeys to carry items and luggage for travelers, or pull carts etc. Yu get your exercise. Also water taxis and boats to get around the island. The place is absolutely beautiful. I can not wait till you see my beautiful pictures. I walked up one side and around the other. The sail boats and boats around this place are unreal. So many well to do people stop here. There was absolutely great shopping in jewelery and shops and allot of people and many eating places. I had a drink along a
