Suddenly Deserted

With the loss of the day boats from Rhodes Yialos is suddenly deserted.  If it was not for the cruise ship from Cyprus and these two small excursion boats from Rhodes, the Discovery and the Glaros, the tourist businesses in the harbour might as well shut up shop.  We haven't seen the harbour this empty since April and September is usually a busy and bustling month for Symi.  We hope that this latest Greek shipping crisis is resolved quickly as otherwise it is going to be a very lean winter indeed for many business owners and their staff. September is the last month when money can be made to cover the winter expenses

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
