J.J. arranged for us to take on a tour of the island. Dora, the wife of Nicholas who picked us up from the airport was our tour guide. Based on what we would like to see, Dora suggested the upper half of the island tour headed by first to Monastiri, perched on a hill overlooking a bay.
At 9:15 am, the air was cool and we were energetic. Grateful that J.J. accompanied me all the way to the top (perhaps 7 minutes walk one way but on an incline), where we took our first souvenir selfie of the day.
Our next and main destination Naoussa is located in the northeastern corner of Paros Island. Smaller and more quaint than Parika, Naoussa supposed to have more specialty restaurants.
Marlot and Fellx, originally from Holland, were having their breakfast. The couple are taking a short vacation visit Family in Holland before transferring from Hong Kong to Singapore. Marlot is in media and Felix is in the field of IT. Whenever, J.J. and I meet interesting people, we truly feel blessed that our paths have crossed.
To Piso Livadi, Logarse, Marpissa, Marmara, Lefkes, Kostos and Marathi, each village deserves more than just a quick drive through.
Thanks to Dora, we had a fabulous 50th Anniversary! J.J. also got me a bouquet from a flower shop.
Our Golden Anniversary!!!
