Also this October, I am enjoying the walks which I lead nearly every day. The island is quiet, the heather is flourishing, the sky is crystal clear most of the time, the day temperature is ideal and the walkers are very enthusiastic. The previous weeks’ participants came from Israel, North-America, Greece, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Belgium. I am enjoying their stories, questions, humour and the very surprising meetings between them and islanders. Apart from the standard programme, during this period, I have done many guided walks on request. The highlights were the Black Cave near Mitata, watching the sunset from Dourianika, the views of Nisakia, visiting Filipas’ watermill near Mylopotamos and, of course, Paleochora. I am already looking forward to the walks next week, to Stathis’ tsipouro distillery and Potamos’ olive press factory.
