What an interesting (but tiring) weekend! I spent most of the weekend in the car, driving a total of 897.6 miles – the distance Germany and back – in the space of 3 days. It was all worth it, for the concert I went to – taking the rest of the family with me.

Our last day was meant to be spent on a boat. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great – although the Sun was shining, it was extremely windy: more than just a gentle breeze particularly on the East coast of the island.

On Saturday evening we drove over to the West coast of Skopelos, for a late afternoon swim at Μηλιά/Milia, before driving along to Πάνορμος/Panormos to have dinner at a spot where we could see the sunset.

Σκόπελος/Skopelos is the island on which Mamma Mia was filmed several years ago (was it really as far back as 2008!?). In fact, our accommodation in Στάφυλος/Stafylos was where some of the cast and crew stayed during filming.

Skopelos Warms Up

There are several tavernas along the beach front in Agnondas and we chose the ‘Mouria’ to eat at. It was still daylight and not long past 7 by the time we left the beach to go and eat – early for us as we usually don’t eat until 8.30/9 by which time the sun has […]

After travelling yesterday, we didn’t go far today. Breakfast was a buffet at the pool bar, with a good selection of things to choose from: Greek yoghurt, bread, ham, cheese, loukoumades (honey balls), cake, biscuits, croissants, hard boiled eggs. I had a bit of everything!
