The Sarajevo Siege

We were picked up from our hostel by the shuttle service 1 hr late. There is no public Transport between Serbia and Bosnia (they still don’t like each other, shocking!!) so travelers usually have to find a private transport or rent a car to cross the border into Bosnia. The drive was absolutely stunning and the…

The Balkans: Belgrade

We arrived at Serbia! when we exited Belgrade (Serbia capital) airport, the city received us with a thunderstorm. We took a public bus that droped us off at the bus station and from there we couldnt walk as originally intended so we took a taxi. Serbia is landlocked and borders Hungary to the north; Romania and Bulgaria…

The Goddess Of Wisdom

Today was sightseeing Athens day! People said it only takes a day to visit the most important sites in the city as they are all concentrated in a small walkable area around the Acropolis. We were supposed to wake up early to visit the Parthenon to beat all the cruise line tours but the snooze…

Αθηνα

In the  morning we boarded again the amazing Blue Star Ferry for a 4 hour cruise to the port of Piraeus in Athens. The Port of Piraeus served as the port of Athens since the ancient times. From there a quick metro ride took us directly to our hotel. We left the hotel to go walk…

The Temple Of Apollo

After realizing we have seen everything in Paros, we explored the possibility to visit other islands for the day. Our first option was to go to Mykonos, but unfortunately, today was the only day of the week with no day tours there. Instead, we decided to go to Naxos, which is the other big island next…

Paros

Sightseeing day in Paros! We started the day as usual by renting another ATV quad-bike to be able to visit all the island. We have noticed that locals here are less friendly than in Santorini. The first stop was the town of Lafkes, the first capital of Paros. The village is located under a pinewood on…

Cyclades

We started today by visiting the famous Perissa black sand beach. We have never been to such a colorful beach and it was breathtaking.  Most of Santorini’s beaches are composed of dark volcanic sand that gets searingly hot in the mid-day sun. The sand is made by these small black rocks that do not stick to you…
