Symi Dream - Living on a Greek island

And today is…?

And today is…?

I don’t know about you, but staying at home so much and being in a ‘groundhog day’ scenario, I forget what day of the week it is. This wasn’t helped on Friday when we took a long walk to Nimborio for breakfast, then walked back and had lunch at Meraklis, and because of that, it felt like a Saturday. And that didn’t help Saturday which then felt like a Sunday, and this morning is Sunday, but I only know that because my computer tells me so, and actually, you’re reading this on Monday. Unless you’re in a different part of the world and it’s already Tuesday or something… Anyway, we had a good old stroll for five miles there and back, taking the zigzag down from our house rather than the usual steps and heading ‘over the top’ as they say. Not that there’s anything unusual in that for either of us, going over the top I mean. We came back around the road, which from the end of Nimborio bay to Meraklis taverna in Yialos is 2.2 miles, according to my step counter. I’ll get on with Wednesday now and let you see some photos.
