This is fairy, CsLaKoNaS' other half. :)
He uses to call me village girl. OK, he is right! I come from a small village, the one in the photo below.
It is called Orion, which means limit, and it exists from the ancient times. It is located in the east side of the island Evia or Euboea.
Evia is a large island in the Aegean Sea which is connected with Sterea Ellada via two bridges, the small and old one (first photo) and the bigger and newer one (second photo below).
It has many archeological monuments, especially from the Frankish period. The next two photos show a Frankish tower and a fortress.
There are also many byzantine churches in the region:
(Now, after almost a decate, you can see this church without any scaffold.)
In Evia, you can enjoy mountains and the sea:
This is our highest mountain:
Look! A lake on the top of the mountain... ;-) -It must be frozen...
Please, do not swim!
Oh, look at there! Now you can swim! You have to swim, they are some of our best beaches, really clean waters.
Well, that's enough for my first post here. Now, it's CsLaKoNaS' turn to post sth about Crete.
Kisses!!!! (smats ! !)
