Preveza vacation Day 2 | Travel

20 September, 2013

Day 2 of our vacation to Preveza was quite full, and filled with lots of back and forths between towns. We did many things that day and we also managed to be back at the hotel for every meal and relax by (and in) the pool. Started the day with a good breakfast (I missed those!), before visiting the famous city of Parga which seems to be very popular among tourists. We walked through the busy roads and alleys there, took lots of photos and headed to Lichnos beach which was very close to Parga (note that the fish there bite! And I’m being totally serious! They bit my leg and made it bleed. Ok it was tiny, but it hurt. Vicious fish! Never been bullied out of water by fish; that was a first!). So after we left that beach, we returned to our hotel for lunch, and then sat by the pool and relaxed under the sun while reading magazines. Of course at some point we swam too, and it was sooo good. The hotel pool was amazing. After dinner we headed to Parga again to see how it looks at night, since it was the only city we encountered that was still so lively, and full of tourists. Please read the labels under each photo and excuse me for putting so many photos in one post. It was impossible to choose among them, and since this is a diary post, I decided to put them anyway. Enjoy!


Η 2η μέρα των διακοπών μας ήταν αρκετά γεμάτη και με πολλά μπρος-πίσω μεταξύ των γύρω πόλεων. Κάναμε πολλά πράγματα εκείνη την ημέρα και καταφέραμε επίσης να είμαστε πίσω στο ξενοδοχείο μας για κάθε γεύμα, αλλά και να χαλαρώσουμε μερικές ώρες δίπλα (και μέσα) στην πισίνα. Ξεκινήσαμε την ημέρα με ένα πολύ καλό πρωϊνό (πόσο μου έλειψαν αυτά!), πριν επισκεφτούμε την πόλη της Πάργας που φαίνεται να είναι πολύ δημοφιλής μεταξύ των τουριστών. Περπατήσαμε στους δρόμους και τα σοκάκια της, βγάλαμε πολλές φωτογραφίες και κατευθυνθήκαμε στην Παραλία Λίχνος η οποία είναι πολύ κοντά στην Πάργα (σημειώστε ότι τα ψαράκια εδώ δαγκώνουν! Ναι είμαι απολύτως σοβαρή! Κάποιο απ’αυτά με δάγκωσε αρκετά ώστε να ματώσω. Οκ, ήταν μικρό, αλλά πόνεσε πολύ. Δεν μου έχει ξανασυμβεί να με αναγκάσουν τα ψάρια να βγω από τη θάλασσα… χαχα). Μόλις αφήσαμε την παραλία του Λίχνου επιστρέψαμε στο ξενοδοχείο μας για μεσημεριανό και καθίσαμε δίπλα στην πισίνα μέχρι να χωνέψουμε, διαβάζοντας περιοδικά. Φυσικά λίγο αργότερα κάναμε και το μπανάκι μας και μάλιστα το απολαύσαμε πάρα πολύ καθώς η πισίνα του ξενοδοχείου μας ήταν τέλεια. Μετά το βραδινό πλέον κατευθυνθήκαμε και πάλι προς την Πάργα για να δούμε πώς είναι τη νύχτα, μιας και ήταν η μόνη πόλη που συναντήσαμε που ήταν ακόμα τόσο ζωντανή και γεμάτη τουρίστες. Μπορείτε να διαβάσετε τις λεζάντες κάτω από κάθε φωτό για να μάθετε λεπτομέρειες και σας ζητώ εκ των προτέρων να με συγχωρέσετε για το μέγεθος αυτού του ποστ. Μου ήταν αδύνατο να διαλέξω λιγότερες φωτογραφίες και έτσι αποφάσισα να τις βάλω όλες μιας και αυτό το ποστ είναι κάτι σαν ημερολόγιο διακοπών για μένα. Ελπίζω να τις απολαύσετε όσο εμείς!

P.S. It was the first time I visited the areas near Preveza and I wasn’t aware that the roads that link the towns and cities are not lighted, so please be careful if you’re doing a lot of driving after dark, because it’s impossible to see clearly without using your high beams if you don’t know the road.

 Υ.Γ. Κάτι που δεν γνώριζα, καθώς είχα να επισκεφτώ το νομό Πρέβεζας από πολύ μικρή είναι ότι οι δρόμοι (εκτός από τα κομβικά σημεία) δεν φωτίζονται καθόλου το βράδυ. Οπότε θέλει μεγάλη προσοχή αν οδηγείτε στις περιοχές αυτές βράδυ, καθώς οι δρόμοι έχουν στροφές και αν δεν ξέρεις τον δρόμο είναι πολύ δύσκολο να διακρίνεις πού πας.




 Now with even more reduced prices!

Τώρα με ακόμα πιο μειωμένες τιμές!

  1. Πολύ όμορφη δεν είναι η Πάργα?
    Στην παραλία του Λύχνου είχα πάει πριν πολλάααααααααα χρόνια. Ομολογώ ότι δεν θυμάμαι τίποτα για αιμοβόρικα ψάρια!!! Εγώ ουσιαστικά πέρασα από Πάργα και Σύβοτα σε ένα απόγευμα στο δρόμο για Κοζάνη. Μπάνιο έκανα στα Σύβοτα, αν και δεν είμαι σίγουρη ότι διάλεξα την “καλύτερη” παραλία τους!!

    • Hi Jane! The post IS written in English. Everything except the 2nd paragraph is in English plus the captions under the photos.
      My blog has turned bilingual from January 2013, so it would be easier for my Greek readers to read my posts, but it was always written in English since its creation.
      I hope you visit it again soon! 🙂 Thank you for your comment!

  2. Υπέροχη η Πάργα!Λατρεύω το συνδυασμό που έκανες με το μαγιό σου!Mόνο το frozen yogurt δεν έπρεπε να δω τέτοια επικίνδυνη ώρα… :p

  3. Hey M! So glad you and T had a nice holiday. Parga looks beautiful, really picturesque. The picture of you with Panagia island behind you is lovely, I’m envious of whoever lives in the white house on the island, what a beautiful place to live!
    You look radiant and really happy in these pics and you should in no way be shy of showing your bikini shot, you look great! Sorry to hear about the fish bullies! I had a similar experience in the Dominican Republic so I totally sympathise! XX

    • Hey Laura! Thank you! Parga is indeed really picturesque and I desperately wanted to visit it. We went there 3-4 times. hehe The little house on Panagia (Virgin Mary in Greek) island is actually a church. You can visit it by boat, but it’s so close to Parga, that many were swimming to get there.
      At first I thought it was only my idea when the fish bit me, but turns out it wasn’t only me who was bitten. Didn’t like that beach, as I couldn’t actually swim there with these fish.
      Thank you so much for your compliment. I was wondering whether or not to post the bikini shot, since I’m still on a diet, and I had gained some kilos during winter, and I still don’t have my ideal body, but I did anyway! 🙂

  4. First comment I post for weeks!!! My computer crashes all the time! I had loads of problems today! But I had to come here to see the beauty of Parga! The island, I told you, it’s exactly that one! The place looks amazing, really, but you look even more amazing! The outfits were beautiful, very good for walking and enjoying holidays and the pool is fabulous! The fish bite, oh no! I never heard of that, wow! Your bikini picture is really sensational, you look so gorgeous and with a great model body! Makia!

    • Oh don’t worry about commenting. I know you have many things to take care off. I know that you’re reading my blog whenever you can and you support my work, and I’m thankful for that.
      I’m glad you liked my photos from Parga! You should see the new post too whenever you can.
      Oh I don’t have a model body, and I never will, because I’m pear-shaped, and usually models are either hourglass-shaped or just flat. But I’d be happy to reach my goal and have my previous body, which is the ideal one for me. Thank you though! 🙂

    • Thank you Steph! Oh I wasn’t very comfortable posting more photos, since I gained a few kilos over the winter, and I’m still on a diet, but that wasn’t so bad, I think.
      I posted more photos of Parga, and some of Acheron river on my new post. Thank you for your comment! 🙂
