Skiathos Island, The Place Which Made Me Feel Young Again.

October 5, 2015
Skiathos, Greece
Skiathos Island is our last stop and it definitely is a good choice of destination to end our Sporades Island-hopping trip. Comparing to the other 2 islands of Alonissos and Skopelos in the same region, Skiathos is definitely the most urbanized, the most lively and the most developed island of all three. Luxurious 5 star properties, high-end restaurants, cafes and bars and pristine, long beaches – what more c

Greece | Banana Beach, The Party Beach of Skiathos.

October 3, 2015
Banana Beach, Skiathos, Greece
After spending most of our afternoon at Elia beach, we transferred to Banana beach. I admit that we were lured to it because of its notorious popularity of being THE party beach in Skiathos. The Greek Mister’s friend is going through puberty so a party is a must when traveling with him, of course I’m kidding. He just finished his puberty stage a month ago.

Elia Beach, Skiathos, Greece

However, when we realized that our GPS was acting quite poorly we asked a local for directions and was advised that Lalaria beach can only be accessed by boat. We didn’t have time to book a cruise trip for this nor am I really in the mood to go on a boat cruise that day

Greece | Love At First Sight With Skiathos Old Town.

September 29, 2015
Skiathos Old Town, Greece
Skiathos Old Town reminded me of a cosmopolitan city, only it’s a million times prettier than the latter but just the same – it has that buzzing, lively and happy vibe in it which is just intoxicating. I would normally hate a place described as such (I actually am not a big fan of the cities) but Skiathos Old Town has retained a particular charm in it. To start off, it’s not surrounded by modern

Greece | Starting Our Skiathos Holiday in Koukounaries Beach.

September 26, 2015
Koukounaries Beach, Skiathos, Greece
As I stepped out of the car and walked towards Skiathos town, I felt so energized! For the past days during this holiday of ours, we’ve been visiting very laidback, not-so-touristy places around Greece which is actually what The Greek Mister and myself prefer these days (it comes with the age I guess). Or so I thought. Skiathos blew me away with its lively atmosphere and happy crowd. It brings you back your y
