More Shipping News

Since I published my blog yesterday morning it has been announced that the Proteus will be providing a limited service between Symi and Rhodes for the period 20 Novermber to 24 December.  She will run on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays so we still have a bottle-neck of boats at the weekend and little during the week but the Dodecanese Seaways Panagia Skiadeni has been blessed and should be releasing her timetable soon which should fill some gaps.

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.
