Living on a Greek island

A Greek island blog from Symi in the Dodecanese islands of Greece. "James’s great talent lies in his careful observation of the absurd and the amusing, the dramas and the difficulties..." Anne Zouroudi.

It’s the start of a new week on Symi, and finally, it is starting to feel like the beginning of the season. Having more visitors arrive helps, more boats in the harbour, the Nikolaos X has been coming in on its day trips, to join the Panagia Skiadeni and the Sea Dreams, plus anyone who comes across on the ‘Spanos’ boat in the morning. There are also longer-term stayers here, and Olympic, I believe, have started their season too.

The weather has been behaving, though with some cloud from time to time and a slight breeze; it’s still 20 degrees in the courtyard at six in the morning most days. We were down in Yialos on Friday, and the flags were out. This is in preparation for the May 8th parade tomorrow, and the opening of the new jetty/harbour/landing stage… It’s not really a jetty as in a pier, or a new harbour, it’s a new place for large boats to dock, beneath the main road outside the main harbour on the south side, so call it what you will. I’m not sure when boats will actually be calling in, but if I hear anything…

And as for the title of today’s post, it’s just a reminder. We know that Adriana’s Symi blog is on hold for the moment, and I’m not sure what’s happening with the Symi Visitor website, but I do know that you still have at least two other ways to keep in touch with Symi apart from my quick posts and views here.

The Symi Chat Forum is still there and live and waiting for you to join in. Here you can discuss Symi related things with others who visit, live on or want to visit the island. Click the link and take a look. www.symiforum.com

And, if you are interested to know about travel to and from the island, then you need to follow Andy’s Symi Travel Blog. He’s something of a travel specialist and keeps us up to date with ferry news, timetables and airline behaviour, plus anything else travel/Symi related. His most recent post is about summer ferry sailings, so that will be useful to check out. I’ll put a permanent link in the sidebar to both of these resources just as soon as I can remember how.
