It is the 10th day of our trip and I have been totally lazy about updating my blog with some news. The need to relax, the missing laptop and the lousy (and very often non-excisting) internet connection, are my excuses but I assure you that I haven't forgotten about you!

In my last post we were at the small island of Antikythera. Now we are a few more miles up north to the island of Kythera. What we are doing is a small island hopping, as we are approaching the mainland in a less obvious and much more time-consuming way. And we just love it :)

The pictures are from a charming settlement that is called Chora and it is a true delight to walk through its narrow streets and enjoy the traditional architecture of older times!

I was pleased to see that apart from a tourist destination, this small village shows undisputed signs of real life, like offices and all year services. I have seen so many wonderful places that are like ghost towns during the winter, that any exception is more than welcome!

In the first picture of the post you can see the amazing view of the location, as well as the castle that lies on the edge of the cliff, but that's another story of its own:)

As I have already said, the laptop is still at the repair shop so all the pictures are unedited, straight from my phone and the whole post is written on my phone too. Not the best way to write a post (I am not very skillful at using my phone) but I hope you'll enjoy the outcome :)

This is my contribution to the #wednesdaywalk challenge, hosted by @tattoodjay :)
Sorry for the late entry but the last two days we had no internet at all but those pictures were taken with #wednesdaywalk in mind and I didn't want to miss it :)

Oh, how delightful! I jumped off my #MarketFriday to catch this one going by. I absolutely adore scenery like this, I am not sure I could live there for the rest of my life, but, I would like to give it a try! :) (I could still travel, yes?)

Everything about it oozes the way of life there. The narrow streets and walkways to amble upon, the lazy way the foliage crawls along the architecture, pushing out a bloom here and there. I guess that is one of the charming things I love so much how much they become part of the landscape instead of being planted for decoration.

The paint adoring the modest homes speaks volumes of beauty. I say modest, but, that is the wrong word. It is hard to conjure up the right words. Oh, yes! Take us along! It is quieting my soul.

Wonderful! I also go where there is no internet and honestly, I am terrible at posting from the phone, so you score points for that. I hope the two of you are enjoying your time. Ha! As if you couldn't!

Απολαύστε τα ταξίδια σας!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
Places like this are very charming indeed but living permanently in one of them is a big decision. Our village is quite similar and after almost 9 years I have to admit that we feel the need to travel a lot more than the first years :)

Ευχαριστούμε πολύ!

Ohh I love this post such a charming place the colors of the doors windows and sky standing out against the white walls

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

Thank you very much, I am glad you like it!

Τελειες φωτογραφίες! Ως είθισται! Πρώτη φορά βλέπω Αγαύη να εχει βγει σε χαλασματα τοιχου!

Ευχαριστώ πολύ!
Ναι κουφό σημείο να φυτρώσει. Αυτό που δεν φαίνεται στην φωτογραφία είναι το τεράστιο φυτό που βρίσκεται πίσω από τον τοίχο και που κάποια ρίζα του, προφανώς, τον διαπέρασε και έδωσε τη νέα αγαύη!

Hello @arcange,
I will be glad to support the proposal when I'll have access to my laptop. For now I am on a trip and I am using my phone loaded only with my posting key so I can't vote. But I won't forget :)

Thank you, looking forward to getting your support for the proposal ⏳🙂

OK, it is done!

Thank you for your support @fotostef, really appreciate it! 👍
