Poros

Setting sail in the morning, but the wind soon died of, so we had to go by engine again. With this, we also had to change from the original plan, as it would be too far to go without proper sailing wind.

We stopped for lunch and swimming in a small bay off Moni island, before heading on to our new destination; Poros. Sailing in to the bay with the village of Poros climbing up the hill was simply fantastic! And finishing off with an amazing sunset just made everything perfect.

I think all of us were a little bit sceptic at first, but it was seriously incredible! With the restaurant in itself being beautiful as well, is the recipe for success.

For dessert we went further out along the harbour front to a place that had no less than 46 different tastes of ice-cream. What to choose?…
