Barca Blue

I’m finally getting round to posting some photos from Barcelona! It’s amazing the difference a blue sky makes. It was only about 18-20°C but sunshine and a blue sky makes everything feel warmer. Barcelona is extremely photogenic so expect more!



The Windy Crag

We affectionately termed Paros the ‘Windy Crag’ because…well, it’s windy and rocky. There’s apparently a constant stream of wind between Paros and Naxos, and this makes Paros a popular windsurfing spot. I grew fond of the Windy Crag, particularly on the day we went on the long, long walk documented in the above photos. We walked from Parikia over to a ruin we could see in the far distance. It involved walking through beaches and over hilly and rocky terrain and it took about 4 hours there and back but we got there! I’d say it was my favourite part of the whole trip.



Views of Athens

I know these are long overdue! The onset of winter has made me lethargic and lazy. These are a mix of shots from Athens. I can’t adequately sum up Athens. I’ve visited a number of cities and I’ve never experienced anything like the views Athens has to offer, and there are so many vantage points from which to see them. Seeing the city from such height gave me a sense of just how massive cities are and, in the case of Athens, just how old and sprawling they can be.
