The village of Vlychos is an accumulation of a few houses and two taverns. It lies south west of the port of Hydra, just a few kilometers along the coast. It is connected to the main town by a stunning walk along the sea side. Here you can find in the evening hours wonderful little [...]



Traveling in Greece – Hydra – Part I

Aug 16th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Travelling

In the summer months it is wise to leave the city and seek refuge in one of the countless islands. There you can cool off having a swim, being near the sea and enjoying the warm summer weather. I have chosen Hydra to do so. The island is not far from buzzing Athens, yet it [...]

The Cypriots are proud of their food and their way of eating. Typical for Cyprus as many countries in the region is the Meze. In Cyprus the Meze is not considered a starter at all. Meze is rather an evening filling meal.  A good choice of Meze, served in the right way you can find [...]

The mountains of Cyprus – Troodos

May 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Travelling

The second day we drove up to the Troodos mountains. As soon as we left the coast the tourism got less and less. Soon we found ourselves in idyllic wilderness and lots of green. Small mountain villages are spread out throughout the mountains and valleys. The village of Omodos was our first stop. After a [...]



A trip to Cyprus: The beginning: a night in Pafos Town

May 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Travelling

The harbor of Pafos is picturesque. Lots of taverns line up along the pier and in perfect English people greet you with: “Hello my friend, take a look at the menu!”. This is a good reason for me to walk quickly by those taverns. These days the harbor walk was full with little booths where [...]
