Summer Vacation 2010 : Syros !! (PICTURE HEAVY)

/ 22 comments
This year I spent my summer vacation with my lovely boyfriend on the island of Syros! Syros is the capital of Cyclades, which is a cluster of islands in the Aegean sea! Here's a map of Cyclades and a map of Syros (yep Athens is on the top left side of the map - as always click on the pictures for larger view) :

Cyclades


Syros


Here are the pics I took! :) Most of them were taken in Ano Syra, which is such a beautiful and old place! Enjoy! :)

Beautiful cat! Look at the fluffy tail ! lol


View from Ano Syra, you can see Hermoupolis and the port of Syros!


Courtyard of a local house in Ano Syra, I love that blue!!


This is a plant called Mpoukamvilia (I don't know its name in English), look at the gorgeous fuchsia flowers! 



Back street in Ano Syra! :) Aren't these back streets gorgeous? I love them!!


Again view from Ano Syra, you can see Hermoupolis and the port of Syros!


This amazing ship is handmade by a man in jail and he used matches (yep you read correctly) to make most of the ship!


Here's the view from the taverna we sat to grab some lunch in Ano Syra! Beautiful huh? :)


This house in Ano Syra is kinda spooky!! If you click on it and see it in full size, you'll notice some weird puppets hanging on the main door! I love it though! And it's HUGE too!


The whole place of Ano Syra is full of steps!!!! My legs were hurting even 2 days after visiting it!




Wow that cat is like Snow White, all white! So beautiful!


Meow!! I have an obsession with cats, can you tell? :)


Hahaha so funny kitties! :)


This is the Holy Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of the Saviour Christ!


The street in front of the church


Gorgeous cat!


This is the Town Hall of Syros! It's so impressive!! It kinda looks like the Parliament building in Athens!


Hahaha I thought that was way too cool !! Yep that's a table and 2 chairs!! LOL!


OMG!!! This is a shop that sells AMAZING local sweets!! Of course I bought stuff from here!!


Please click on the next 2 pictures and see them full size!! Look at that CUTE kitty on the right!! <3




On the next pics you can see the view from our balcony, which was huge!!


This is the beach we were hanging out!! :)


This is the village of Galissas :)

 Shells and natural sponges at the port of Syros! So pretty! :)

Gorgeous ship called Aeolos Kenteris II from Nel Lines!


I have no idea what that is!! It's on the other side of the port of Syros! I thought it was pretty though, so I took a pictures!


So many pictures, I know! But I'm a picture freak, I LOVE taking pictures!! :) I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully you'll want to visit this beautiful island in the near future! :)
