Between the Mountains and the Deep Blue Sea

For the first time, I’ve been to Greece. It was, for the most part, absolutely brilliant! To get the not so brilliant parts out of the way right here: people on strike at archaeological sites, people smoking everywhere (the ubiquitous non-smoking signs making for useless decoration), people complaining about having to pay taxes.

The first and last night we spent in Athens. More on that later.

The remainder of our holiday we stayed on the Peloponnese. The first half we were based close to Kyparissia, in a place called Terpsi Apartements. The views were amazing:

Which was good, because over the Christmas days everything was closed, so we had to do a bit of self-catering. The hosts were really helpful, and we also got some home-made cookies and cake, yummy! I can really recommend the place. It would be ideal, however, for someone with their own transport. You can get bikes on site for free.

It is a quite rural area, but the beach is only a short walk away:beachon the beach
