Hope you have a great time in Ios

I will not, as it seems, be able to hit Ios this season. No Delfini beach area, no square at midnight, no headbanging. Hope the wind is more gentle this year, so the people in the island can relax a bit more. From Friday I will follow Line's blog, in Norwegian.

Shit stuff

Completely insane to use a greek internet explorer. You don't know if you will delete or copy stuff. All greek letters in the menus. Just wanted to tell that the send-to-this-blog function in the mobile phone doen't function any more. Tried to post pictures many times.
Is by now on Purple pig camping reception sweatting in the heat here. Long back to the beach. Will come back with more pictures after the vacation.

Fransesco's view

View to Sikinos from the american's favorite hostel and bar Fransesco's. Had to buy ibuprofen at the pharmacy so sunset in the village was my carrot to leave the beach.

Light wind from south

Milapota day 3. Perfect climate and fun waves. But i have fever and a sore throut. Always something wrong with me here.

Far out bar

George and Stephano. S liked to take a pic of me but i prefer to be behind the camera.

Eventually an indian

Far out line.

No professionals here

Not so far anyway, but in purple pig they are. Drinking ones.

The milapota advantage

You know what it is? It is a really nice beach that is just perfectly sandy with no stones and deep. Not like the 35 degree shallow beaches in thailand. My body sensor wd say it is 30 in the air and 26 in the sea.

Beach kit

Happy about the hat.

In the pool

Norwegians in katerina's pool. I told them that i was going to put the image on the blog, the ios-blog. Now i'm on the beach with my two new hats. .heard y-day that this is the indian's day. Haven't seen any though. Not yet.

Lunch at katerina hotel

One fresh orange juice. Everything On the book. Very conveniant to pay when checking out from the hotel.

Please don't jump

The goat probably feels absolutely safe.. The norwegian kids took a break from the lunch chips to watch the brave one..

Will Probably take both a small cabin bag and a ryggsack with soft things like a warm sleeping bag and a silky pillow. Bed comfort is not known In greek hotels, where the sheets are like sand paper and the pillows hard är a sack of potatoes and the cruel enemy of the neck. Last year was so cold At night In july that a sheet to cover you was not enough. One had to put om All the clothes and socks.

Resceduled the Ios trip

Iiii. Leaving for Ios tomorrow instead of on the 11th. The flight from STockholm will land in Santorini around 11 pm.

Old photos added

Hello. Today I've added some Ios pics from 1975 that I found in an album. Used the mobile phone to snap them, so quality could be better. Felt I had to contribute some more pictures before leaving for Ios.

All images are tagged with year, so if you only like to see the newer stuff, click the 2006 or 2007 link. I have hundred of pictures from 2004, 2005 and 2006, but I'll add the best ones step by step.

1978: Café owner Costas

Costas owned one of the square cafées, that was the music hub of the square. Music only came from one source at that time: the player in this place.

1978: Trying to find the beach

On the way to the beach. I think it is the feet of my boyfriend (of the time).
