Greeks like openings and blessings so last evening the new sports year was officially opened in the Skopelos gym hall with priest Vangelis Kechriotis. It is nice that the acoustics in the hall are so good because the father Vangelis was situated far from the crowd but everybody was silent because it is important to get a blessing so the year will go well. His basil bunch was dipped in the water after the blessing and we were all sprinkled/blessed with water. The volleyball girls also had a chance to show off their new training gear. Afterwards cake and soft drinks were given out!

Sporades cycling and trails


Sporades cycling has started to write down the trails they are cycling around the island and they are also starting with the islands Alonissos and Skiathos. Below is their last recording of the area and their comment:
Pouda & Mavragani: Lovely quiet trails at the very north of Skopelos. Very up and down with some steeper ramps (only walked once!). Nice lunch/drinks stop at the almost never visited small church of Agios Georgios, tucked away in the woods but with lovely views of the coastline and beach at Perivolou.
