>> Tuesday, October 18, 2016 – boutique cruise ships., life on Symi in October, October weather, Swan Hellenic Minerva, winter ferries
|The view from the Symi Visitor Accommodation office this morning. I never know what I am going to see when I open the French doors but this has to be a first. See the next photograph for a close up.|
|An unlikely sight in Yialos on a Tuesday morning in October - or any other morning for that matter.|
|Monday morning was rather more conventional.|
|The Swan Hellenic Lines 'Minerva'.|
|Sunny balconies near the post office in the back streets of Yialos.|
|It is very quiet in the harbour. I took this photograph in the late morning on Monday and apart from occasional promenading couples from the 'Minerva' there were very few people around.|
|Remember the new bus stop bench in Chorio? Well something hit it recently, possibly even the bus, so it is now slightly wonky. The two luminous orange posts are evidently an attempt to prevent a recurrence.|
The winter ferry schedules have been released, in the case of the Blue Star up to March and in the case of Dodecanese Seaways until the end of December so we can make our own travel plans. You can find more details on Andy's travel blog in addition to the links above. Andy is also doing his usual sterling research into flight details for how to get to Symi in 2017 from various points around Europe so don't forget to check his regular travel news updates.
Have a good week.
