This was my third visit to the island of Karpathos in just over a year but the first time I was there in mid October. I was really looking forward to seeing my friend Popi again and also staying at her excellent Silene Villas. The weather was perfect, even better than summer and the beaches were very quiet, totally how I like them!
I visited Karpathos in August for the first time and I absolutely fell in love with the island. Fantastic beaches throughout, strong traditions and positive people. I was wishing to go back since I came back to Athens and finally my wishes came true! I had to travel back again in late September to shoot the fantastic Silene Villas with my new gorgeous friend & owner of the hotel, Popi. Once the work was done we took some time to go swimming and shoot more photos!
So after returning to Athens from a fantastic week on Kythera, I just had enough time to wash some clothes and embark on a journey to the south Aegean. My first stop would be Karpathos. An amazing island with fantastic beaches, picturesque villages keeping strong traditions, delicious food and super friendly people!
