A Day in Evia – Part 1

We spent a day on the island of Evia. It’s only 10km off the mainland and about 50km from the centre of Athens. To get there we drove to the port of Nea Palatia, a typical small coastal town.

Then it was on to the ferry for the 10km ride across to the island.

It wasn’t the best of days to be on the coast, being overcast, but much of the landscape in ‘middle’ Evia was relatively undeveloped.

There were some things along the way that looked typically Greek to me, like this mini shrine.

I had a dip on the beach, my first (and only) in the Mediterranean. Being only April, the water was limb numbingly cold. But I suppose it would be refreshing in mid-summer when the temperatures hit 40C.
