I do not mind to travel alone, but it felt great when my sister and her friend, along with their young grandsons, finally arrived in Zakynthos. I met them at the airport where I returned my car while they picked up a slightly larger one, which in theory should accommodate all five of us. I was glad that I could leave driving on the island to someone else!
We checked into Armonia Studios, which turned out to be a very good choice. We have a two bedroom apartment with a huge balcony and nice views of the sea. I highly recommend this place. It requires its own reviews so I will make sure to post about it later. First night we simply enjoyed the beach by the hotel and each other’s company.
Next day, we started early towards the island’s main attraction, Navagio Beach. We managed to reach our destination but we got lost frequently. We did not mind it at all. It was a pleasure to discover the back roads, beautiful beaches, and interesting architecture. Here are some scenes from the road.
