ADVENTURE AWAITS 4
Posted on August 23, 2012 by Isabella Cecconi
The ship arrives at dawn in the port of Vathy. The old aristocratic houses along the sea front glow under the first rays of sun. The sea glitters as it greets the new day that is arriving. The town gradually changes its colors and begins to wake up. I can hear voices from the harbor and the smell of Baclava from pastries. It is another hot summer day. I’ve migrated from north to the south east. I, as awed traveler in this remote island look at the Aegean sea for the fourth time in my life with a smile on my face. I’ll never have enough. I’ve traveled 3000 kms so far this very month. This green-covered island has my heart from the very first time. I will visit from one side to the other of the island, climbing up mountains and swimming in crystal-clear sea. Phytaghoras and Goddess Hera were born here. Samos. I’ll worship the sacred caves and smell the monasteries atmosphere and I’ll cherish every single moment as if it is the last. Adventure awaits.
