Travel Snaps Tuesday – Syros

It’s finally raining.  And I am loving it.  I think my body has been craving the rain.  I’m not sure why, maybe I am getting lazy about watering my garden.  But I really think I just needed it.  There is something so refreshing about the rain.  I love how green and healthy the grass looks when it is wet.  I also love the smell.  It reminds me of camping in a tent and being cozy warm inside.  Today I wanted to be cozy.  To sit by my computer with a cup of tea, my blanket and get some good editing done.  It is hard to sit at the computer all day when the sun is beaming through the window and begging me to get outside.  So perhaps the rain is a way of telling me to buckle down and get to work?

Today’s post is about a beautiful island in Greece that we had no plans on visiting.  Darren and I had no intention of stopping in Syros, but the universe had other plans.  Anyone who has travelled in Greece knows how absolutely chaotic and bizarre the ferry schedule can be.  Island hopping can get complicated.  The ferry schedules are a mess and can flip your plans upside down in a moments time.  That’s what happened to us.  But so often these unexpected circumstances in life turn into a wonderful experience and I am happy to say that this accidental island visit was just meant to be.  Syros is gorgeous.  It is a beautiful combination of old and new.  I could have wandered down their marble and cobblestone streets for hours taking photos.  And yes, there are several places in Greece we visited where the streets were made out of marble slabs!  Amazing.

Some snaps of stunning Syros.
