Hydra, Greece: Part One



Fewer than 2,000 people live on the Greek island of Hydra, so it's supremely peaceful, with scarcely a handful of taverns scattered across an area of 28 square miles, filled with picturesque harbours & bays, roughly an hour's boat ride from Athens.

  1. Hydra? Isn't that the name of a serpent or a dragon? Very quiet place, so peaceful.

    1. Suituapui: yes, and it's also the name of a villainous group in the marvel comic book universe. But luckily, we encountered no baddies on this island! ;)

  3. The only hydra I know is the one from Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. This looks like a really tranquil place to retire to ;) How do people move around on this island...on foot, bicycles?

    1. Contact.ewew: heheh, yeah, i think the pop culture hydra is the one that's most widely known in modern times ;) i've been thinking about retirement places recently, and i definitely wouldn't mind a tranquil island like this. people here seem to get around either by foot or by donkey :)

  4. I thought Greece always packed with tourists, why those places in your photo looks so empty?

    1. Choi Yen: ooo, this island is not very well-known or popular - and it was not during summer, so there are fewer tourists during the off-peak season ;)
