Relax and Enjoy the Summer Holidays.

The heatwave sizzles on.  The whole of Greece is sweltering at the moment with temperatures on the uphill side of 40 degrees centigrade.  The authorities are issuing advice to tourists and residents on how to cope in the heat, much of which is commonsense – stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day, avoid dehydration by drinking sufficient water (NOT alcohol), wear cool loose clothing and a hat and avoid strenuous physical activity.  Luckily Symi’s beaches have shade, either in the form of organised umbrellas or in the form of native tamarisk trees and steep cliffs.  A slow lunch in a shady taverna is also a good way to pass the hottest hours of the day.

DodecaneseSeaways have finally put up their finalised ferry schedule for August, much to the relief of all concerned so we can all relax and enjoy the summer holidays.

Have a good weekend.

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.
