Second day of exploration with a scooter
Aegina Travel Blog› entry 8 of 11 › view all entries
We get up at ten; have breakfast at Vassilis, because Kostas is closed. At 11:00 we leave by scooter, which we already rented before breakfast. At first we take the same roads as the previous time along the coast passing by the beautiful village of Souvala with the gorgeous harbor and then inland to Palaiochora. Ancient churches, grouped together. Only a few of the churches are open, but we still can look inside. It looks sober, but pretty. It really is worth to climb up the hill, because there are not only the churches, but you have also a view at the monastery and Souvala. Then we drive to Aja marina and from there we want to go to Porta to go and explore the rest. We’re not lucky, because we don’t find the road and arrive at the monastery again. So we take the road back to Aegina and the big coast road to Perdika. It is already 14:00 when we start lunch. Choriatiki and chtapodi with water and wine. Two yachts arrive, so we have something to see. After about an hour we go back to Aegina town and go snorkeling. We take the scooter to drive 15 minutes north and there in a small bay we can snorkel. There are a lot of fish, big ones and small ones, all mixed and especially between the weeds. Eef starts to get the hang of it and also starts to like it more. We stay here for an hour and then return to hotel Avra. At 18:00 it is apero-time. We drink at Vassilis and Enrique “ouzo me meze”. The meze is nothing much here. We still enjoy it and also spend the rest of the evening there, flooded with drinks.
