Visiting “The Big Blue” of Amorgos Greece

My journal Uncategorized

The island of Amorgos has been on my bucket list since 1988 when the movie, The Big Blue first came out.

A few years earlier my family had moved from the States to my mothers island of Lesvos then later to Crete. The movies’ cinematography and music simply revoked all the positive of the island live in Greece.
Walking up the steps to the monastery of Chozoviotisa then swimming in the crystal clear waters just bellow Saint Anna was as if living in Luc Besson’s majestic film.

Doing this with my family was even better. Both my wife and daughter loved the place. And my personal expectations were also met.

The waters were as blue as I had imagined. The cliff-hanging monastery was an inspiring experience. The landscape wild and at the same time inviting. The food was tasty with a twist of Amorgos, such as the local bitter mizithra cheese.
And our stay in Chora although characterized by the nonstop winds, cozy and quaint.

So when next planning on coming to Greece, look up the island of Amorgos.

A couple of flights away from Chania, Crete Greece we ended up in Sultanahmet Istanbul. As you fly in over Istanbul, you are reminded that this is a city of over 12 million people. In search of a short trip near Chania, my family and I decided to spend a few days exploring the wonders and as much history as possible. Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Galata tower, Taksim square just to name a few. This is my “warm up” post before I manage to edit and share some more of the images I captured during our trip.
