From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine I haven't been yet on the island of Samothraki but I have watched it from far away many times. When travelling to Thessaloniki Greece back and forth I have stoped at Alexandroupolis city which is the main port to Samothraki ferries, and the island stands gray in colur in the far distance. Also when I go to visit Imbros or Gokceada island in Turkey the island shows almost the same sillohouette but this time the view is from the south side.  Eleni who is my cousin living in Thessaloniki and works for EPESTH, the Voleyball Federation of Thessaloniki, has been on the island a few times, so I asked her a few questions about the island and she provided also a few photos to us.

The church is one of the most photographed churches of Mykonos. It is a sloping and whitewashed building looking very interesting as time has contributed to the deterioration and damage of its external look, creating a unique building. As for it's name, the word Paraportiani is an ... (more)

Kaputaş Beach, the Real Turqoise Color in the Mediterranean

From the Turkish Riviera Magazine Kaputaş beach is on the Kaş-Kalkan highway in the southwestern Turkey on the Mediterranean sea coast. The beach is on the 7th km after Kalkan and some 20 km before Kaş at a cove running out of an extremely narrow valley of steep cliffs coming down from the Taurus mountains. It is probably the most photographed beach of Turkey. You have probably seen its photo on some poster or elsewhere relating to Turkish tourism as it has been featured in many holiday brochures.   It is a very popular place as the region has an untouched natural beauty and a...

Cretan Wedding Bread, a Piece of Art

From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine Crete is an island of traditions, and is much different than the other parts of Greece. It is a big island and there are many attractions to find just know them in advance and watch-out for them. One of those attractions is certainly the Cretan Wedding tradition and if you happen to come across on a wedding, especially in the villages do not miss it.  I came across a wedding at Anogia village on the heights of Crete island, where a wedding is some very special event. At that village guests and villagers get dressed up and parade thru the... (more)
