What a Glorious Wednesday!

Not a cloud in the sky and the Mediterranean as blue as can be.  That is the small island of Nimos with its tiny monastery just visible in the distance.  The buildings in the left hand side of the photograph are NOS beach and Tholos restaurant in Harani.  I took this photograph looking towards Nimos on my walk to work this morning.

This is for the people on the Symi Visitor Forum pondering over the location of the Taxiarchis Hotel relative to other popular locations.  The Taxiarchis is the terracotta building on the left foreground plus adjoining buildings.  On the hill behind it in a straggly row along the lanes are the Sunrise Cafe, the Little Blue House, Zoe's apartments and Olympic Holidays' Anastasia apartments.  Symi is a bit like toyland so nowhere is really very far from anywhere else.

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.
