>> Friday, August 26, 2016 – booking holidays, life on Symi in the summer, Symi architecture, Symi schools, Symi Visitor Accommodation
|Waiting at the clock tower for the Blue Star Paros on Friday morning. The exodus has begun and many people who have summer houses here or who have been visiting friends and relations for the August holidays are now heading for home. It is a little odd at first, hearing people wishing each other 'kalo chimona' (happy winter) when winter is still several months away and temperatures remain steadfastly in the thirties but that is the traditional farewell at this time of the year. Everyone hopes to be reunited, same time, same place, next year.|
|Symi's new wellness centre at the back of the town square is another landmark building. Activities and events are advertised on the chalkboard as well as on Facebook and visitors are welcome.|
|Presumably the location for this sundial was chosen for decorative reasons rather than functionality as it is quite emphatically in the shade.|
We have had quite a lot of late bookings, mainly for September and October and it looks as though the end of the season may well be busier than the beginning. We are also getting lots of enquiries for 2017 which is always encouraging. Remember, we start confirming bookings for 2017 at the end of October but if you have a specific property in mind you are welcome to email us now to hold it for you.
Have a good weekend.
