Hydra, Greece - A short hydrofoil trip from hectic Athens and you arrive at this most beautiful of islands. No vehicular travel is permitted and you can get your luggage delivered to your hotel by donkeys! The beauty Hydra is the cobbled streets, the half moon bay surrounded by outdoor dining and some amazingly beautiful handicrafts and jewelry available at the small boutique shops. Lazy afternoons drinking by the bay and people watching is a pleasure here!
Ahh..these gourds in this greek entranceway..seem to be taking on a life of their own..prior to a National holiday. Click photo to see pictures from my 3 week working vacation in Hydra,Greece and nearby Saronic Islands of Spetses and Poros.
