Last weekend Dimitris had a sailing race to and fro Hydra Island so I thought it was a good chance to tag along. Hydra is only 1 hour and a half away from Piraeus port but it's a completely different world. It has maintained it's unique identity over the years and it's an ideal weekend getaway.In Hydra there are no cars or motorbikes and the main means of transportation are donkeys! It's so quite and lovely!
Getting back from Hydra proven a bit more difficult. Due to strong winds the small vessels that connect Hydra to the mainland couldn't sail so my only chance of getting back was to go with the sailboat. The weather conditions where indeed extremes for non-sailor like me to travel that way but all in all it was a great experience!
