I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite photos. I was fortunate to travel to Greece a few years back and reconnect with family, I am of greek heritage and like most there are a few cousins around the world.
I spent the majority of my time on the Island of Lesvos and my cousins took great pride in showing me around. Its a beautiful Island, the landscape is partly volcanic but very typical of the Mediterranean. Olive trees are abound everywhere and the locals take great pride in growing and selling their own fresh fruit and vegetables. The island is clean and the beaches are wonderful. One main attraction though is its proximity to Turkey and a 45 minute ferry ride will take you across for 15 euros. A day trip to the amazing bazaar was an opportunity I thankfully didn’t miss out on and one which I highly recommend!
I could have added all 1600 photos that I took on that trip but it would be pictures of blue sky, crystal clear beaches, olive trees and churches not to mention the food! But nothing beats the sights and sounds of what is Greece no matter which island you choose to visit.
I hope you enjoy this little taste of Lesvos.
