The view from the tiny little terrace where we can have our breakfast served.

This is the bustling port of Ermoupoli, capital of the island of Syros and the South Aegean Region of Greece. It was founded at the beginning of the Greek war of independence and until eclipsed by Piraeus was the most important ship building centre in Greece. It is a candidate for European Capital of Culture for 2021

One a day from #Greece for Greece

The last in my little mini-series as we're Flying to Greece tomorrow to undertake our own bail-out operation (every little bit helps)

Astypalea is a small butterfly shaped island in the Dodecanese which has been spared the ravages of mass charter based tourism. Quite a few of the houses in the area just below the venetian fort lie empty for much of the year as they are owned by wealthy Athenians.

Postcard from Greece for my friends here:

Tinos Town by night at the end of the two day religious festival celebrating the discovery of a sacred icon of the Virgin Mary by the nun Pelagia, often referred to as our Lady of Tinos and the Patron Saint of the whole of Greece. For Greeks, the site is just as important as Lourdes and many will make regular pilgrimages from all over the world. The most devout of the pilgrims will literally crawl from the harbour front up a 400m hill and up the steps of the church that is home to the icon.

One a day from #Greece for Greece (Until 18 July)

Bougainvillea is found in just about every village town and city in Greece, and it always cheers me up just to see it cascading over a wall.

PS spot the Hummingbird Hawk Moth (not too difficult!)

Married for more than 30 years to Chris and we have two sons born in the mid '80s - you do the maths.

Used to play rugby, cricket and squash but, now, humping the "bigma" around is as energetic as it gets.....

Support Lancashire at cricket; Wales at Rugby and Ipswich Town at Football - work that out!
