Our First Full Day on Paros Island

Aloha Everyone,

The island has approximately 13,000 year round resident population. During the summer tourists months, June, July and August, in pre-pandemic years, Paros welcomes about 125,000 tourists. Most are from the UK, Germany, Netherlands and the United States.

The Greek government prioritized vaccinations using the single dose J&J vaccine for island residents. The goal was to vaccinate residents by the end of June at all major tourism islands. Full vaccination was achieved on 30 islands, more were added during the summer months. All visitors were then required to show proof of vaccination.  

One is required to use a mask while indoors but may remove it when when they are outdoors. Since there are lots of children traveling with their parents, I prefer to wear my mask except while dining.

Did I mentioned that J.J. and I love it here!!!

Aloha -- Cathi
