The trip with Proteus from Glossa to Mantoudi takes one and a half hours (19.80 euro one way) Mantoudi harbor is a desolate place but the harbor serves it purpose. You get in quick and you get out quick.

A coach waits for passengers who want to go to Athens (14 euro) If the coach is not full you can get a seat and pay in the bus. In high season it is recommended to get a bus ticket together with your boat ticket. From Evia to Athens takes about 3 hours. There is a toilet stop in Halkida, Evia. The drive over the winding mountainous roads on Evia is long.

If you want to connect to the metro in Athens get out at Electriko/ Kato Liosa. Don’t forget to tell the coach driver this so your luggage is placed on the other side of the coach.

During the summer Skopelosnews is very busy but thanks to readers of the blog we can show you things that are happening on the island.

These roadworks were long overdue. The flood of 2015 had taken away a part of this coastal road and it was pretty difficult and dangerous to pass the makeshift fence when another car was coming from the opposite direction. Hopefully the work will be done quickly because there are a lot of cars driving on that part of the road.
Thanks to Stephen and Claire for the photo.

In between

No really, the buses are running! You cannot see at what time they will go at the moment but the blank area where times should be will be full in a short while. It is just for a couple of minutes that nobody knows when the buses leave. Claire caught busdriver Costas at the moment that he was changing/adding the bustimes for the full season.
Thanks Stephen and Claire for the photo. Skopelosnews loves it when readers participate in the blog like this.
