Day 6 begun with a walk to Daskalopetra, which was in the same area as our hotel. Just a few meters away from our hotel was Daskalopetra, or Homer’s Rock, one of the island’s best known monuments. It is considered to be the place where Homer used to teach his students.
Daskalopetra area also has a very nice beach which was just across our hotel.
I took some photos there while walking back to the hotel to take the car and start our trip.
Zara top, H&M boyfriend shorts (similar style), Savil bag, local Chalkidiki’s shop plastic sandals, Ray Ban folding wayfarer sunglasses, H&M neon yellow necklace, H&M neon yellow bra (similar style), and Michael Kors rose gold watch (similar style).
Next stop, after a road trip over the mountains, was the amazing beach of Giosonas. This beach is at the top of my list for my next trip to Chios. I was soooo bummed that I couldn’t swim that day.
Next stop, the village of Kardamilla…
The statue of Kardamilitissa, the woman from Kardamila
And me again posing for the camera at Kardamila
Leaving Kardamila behind, we travelled to the nearby village of Lagada for lunch.
The village is really beautiful and it has many taverns next to the sea. We sat at Passas, as my cousin recommended, and we really enjoyed everything we ate. Fresh seafood and very yummy appetizers! The only disadvantage was the prices which were a bit high, but after all, seafood is always expensive. If you wanna take a look at the place go here.
At our way “home”, we drove through the village Sykiada, which had really nice houses, and we made a quick stop at the village Pantoukios, that my mother wanted to see. Don’t want to bore you with more pictures, so I’ll go straight to the night part.
I could dedicate another post for the night of the 6th, and the 7th day, but I thought there is no point, since I’ve already shown you almost everything, and I didn’t take many pictures after day 6 to justify another post. So this is the last post of my Chios trip.
For our last night on the island, we went to an area very close to the city of Chios, which is called Karfas. Karfas is a very touristic place, and has many foreigners, hotels, stores, and taverns. My aunt and uncle took us to the place which is the closest one to Turkey. You can actually see Turkey from there.
Here it is! Those lands you see in the back of the photo are the coasts of Turkey, the areas around Çeşme if I’m not mistaken. And as you can probably see, we had almost a full moon that night.
After that we went to a local tavern, where I ate a fantastic salad and a chicken souvla (on a big metallic skewer) which was the best I’ve ever had.
For the night, I picked an easy to wear “leopard” dress, which I paired with turquoise accessories I had with me. I’m not sure about the result, but I didn’t have many of my things with me, so I had to use whatever I had.
These pics were taken after we returned to our hotel to pack our suitcases.
Wearing: H&M dress (bought in Vienna last summer), Doca long clutch (worn before here), Aslanis shoes (worn before here and here), Ray-Ban folding wayfarers, and an arm candy of vintage and H&M bracelets (worn before here).
Unfortunately, I didn’t take pics of the dress, and outfit that I was wearing on the last day. The day consisted of souvenir shopping for ourselves and family friends, a visit to Chios’ fortress (you can see photos of it, here), and lunch at a tavern. After that, we stayed at my aunt’s home until it was time to leave for the airport. I’ll try to squeeze some more photos in my “month in pics” post which is coming next.
I’m sorry for the long post, but I wanted to include as many as I could in order to avoid an extra post. So after my “month in pics” and wishlist posts, I’ll return to my regular “non-Chios related” posting, which includes 2 more outfit posts I’ve managed to photograph a few days ago.
See you soon. And have a nice weekend.
