Flying in to Athens
Beautiful clouds were before landing.
When I write about this sailing trip, too much time passed since it happened or I must admit, I am less and less in to writing. Sorry, I was planning a detailed blog for hiking and sailing, but it’s not happening anymore, so I decided to describe just few details from my memory for too general picture.. .. Thanks to Captain Tony, who kept detailed ship log, I can look for detailed information and add comments for the pictures.
Anyway, I dreamed long time for sailing vacation and still it came as a surprise. It was wonderful trip in many ways - way of traveling and lifestyle, places visited, companionship. Weather was very nice, but did not allow much of going under sails. Still, every time there was chance, it was taken. One of the first ever experiences - sailing with.. good sound of music was very impressive. Usually, in the nature or traveling I don't listen to music much and I sailed only once before and then the music was only wind in the sails and the waves.
Places not too crowded compared to Athens, but alive, charming, with strong history spirit and unforgettable views. Couple towns were
on quiet, even boring side and there as a rule were street dogs, sad scenery to me. In one of bays towards we experienced amazing rain storm with constant lightening show, pouring water from the sky and luckily no much wind. What a show, but just to keep in memories, was too much rain to take camera out.
Sailing brings different traveling and exploration spirit, the best, I would say. This time purely leisure sailing trip it was, but all the same - constant move, arriving in to different places, scenery passing by, so close to the sea all the time, activities on the boat and on the shore, including walking, swimming, trying local cuisine. Ah, but I am complete chicken, was enough stress for me when docking, anchoring or when motor boat passing by would make waves.. Looking back it was nothing compared what came up couple months later sailing in Canaries.. Coming up in my next blog..
