Skulle egentlig poste noen flere innlegg fra Santorini i fjor sommer. Men tok heller en liten throwback til Zakynthos og Athen sommeren 2013! Snart 3 år sida jo, det begynner å bli en stund nå. Kan fortsatt huske at vi snakka om å dra til Ios da vi var på Zakynthos, og det gjorde vi jo også et par år senere. Ikke verst, hva?
Really wish we could travel a lot more! Would love to just get on a plane and go somewhere!
We spent one whole day in Athens. There were so many things we wanted to see, but we didn`t have time for everything. But we had to see The Acropolis.
Athens have so much history, and it feels so special to stand and see with your own eyes these amazing things that`s been built here. Standing by Hadrian`s Arch you feel the energy from him, this hot guy, you can almost feel the sex appeal from him!
We took a boat trip around the island to all sights. It was a 7 hour trip and we had great fun!
The island of Zakynthos is famous for turtles, it is one of the highlights of the island. But we did not see any turtles: (
“Blue caves” are caves around the island which is dug into the huge cliff. We took several stops and those who wanted to swim, could do it.
The next stop and what got us to come to the island is Navagio beach. Navagio beach is a sandy white beach, with high white cliffs. And an old shipwreck which is also an attraction on the island. It was an amazing place, we were there for only one hour.
We took lots of pictures and wrote some different things on the ship. The water was turquoise blue and you had the feeling that you were in Caribbean. The water was very cold and it is because of the high cliffs that shades the sun.
The last few days have been a little busy for us and that is why we have not blogged. First I will start by telling about how we got to the island we chose a difficult way.
1) First our flight went from Torp and we landed in between Amsterdam.
2) We went from Amsterdam to Paris.
3) From Paris we finally arrived to Athens, late at night.
We booked already in Norway, so the only thing we did when we arrived was to find our hotel. The hotel was a nightmare in the scariest street in town! The next day we got up to take a bus to Kyllini where it went ferries to Zakynthos. It was a 4 hour bus ride, and not just the loveliest trip. When we got to Kyllini we took the ferry which lasted an hour.
