Postcard from Paros and Restaurant Magic Paros

Aloha Everyone,

Postcards were popular, economical and an easy method for travelers to stay in touch with friends and families back home.  Internet and mobile phone communication changed all that. Now sending postcards could be more time consuming as you have to go through 3 steps: purchase postcards, write a quick message, then post them. In Paros, J.J. & I saw a post office near our hotel, so we decided to send a few.

As you can see, the postcard design we chose depicts a view that is common to Paros and picture perfect.

The two of us have been trying different restaurants located on the waterfront and those surrounding the main Palikia Town Square. Food prices, menu items do not differ much between restaurants. So we have gone back repeatedly to at least 4 establishments for the quality of their food, including presentation and personal service.

Magic Paros is one of them which we will remember by name. Julie the chef takes pride in her dishes and it shows. On both occasions, Julie made menu suggestions. Julie has 20 plus years of restaurant experience but only 4 months since she has been with Magic Paros. An extrovert and enthusiastic, Julie captured our heart and yes, our stomach with her complimentary homemade desserts.

Aloha -- Cathi
