Saturday 11th August
Today we say farewell to Turkey and head on towards Greece.
Travelling by ferry we ventured on towards the Island of Samos. I was especially intrigued in our short visit to Samos as it was Pythagoras’ birthplace.
It was a lovely Greek café – with a roof covered with ‘real’ grapevines with grapes hanging down to create a beautiful relaxing atmosphere.
After lunch Janice spent the rest of the day lounging in comfort in the heat on a Greek Island. It was so relaxing and the view was spectacular looking out to the Agean Sea. Jan spent her time reading a novel, sitting in a seaside café relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere – the photo shown is the view that she had from her possie.
Priscilla spent her time wandering around the local shops – the tourist prices were noticeable in this area. In Australia I am always asked if I am of Greek origin… Whereas here, I am asked if I am of Arab origin!
