It's always hard to place the wonderful moments spent somewhere in just one post and to choose the best pics that can describe them or give an idea of the unmemorable time spent there. But, will do my best:)
Thanks to my last year posts about Skopelos, I will here share just some of the very favourite pics from this year vacation, but you can always see them all in my flickr set from this year or browse through all the Skopelos pictures from this and past year.
Hopefully I will learn how to do the video editing in Premiere so that I can make a video clip too, gathering all the small clips I took this year. On my TO DO list!!!
But, while, I learn that, just for fun(and because kids laugh hard watching these) here are 2 short video clips from the Limnonari beach
Anyway, what I LOVE about Skopelos island is that it's not very crowded and very popular island (at least now) and it's perfect for families. I think that Skopelos gained the wast popularity after the Mamma mia film , but now, 5 years after and in the years of the global economic crisis (major visitors are Greeks), I think it's rather peaceful island again.
Almost on all the beaches on the island you can find the natural shadow spots. Pine trees are all over the island. The old city part is so beautiful, breathing history and my favourite bougainvilleas....love it!!!It's like a paradise coloured in aqua, electric blue, hot pink and white shades!
So, you can enjoy the beaches, enjoy the cultural and historical part of the island, you can eat great food. And talking about the food, this year, we stumbled upon a fantastic restaurant in the center of the old city: Perivoli. What a magical place with the most magnificent garden with homegrown fruit, herbs and vegetables! The food was so delicious!!!A must!!!
For hose who love fishing and eating fish, it's a paradise!!!
We are already thinking to maybe go again next year....it's a true paradise!
