This is my last full-day here on Paros. I’m excited to travel a little more and then head home but there are so many things I’m going to miss here and it’ll be sad to leave!
In the last few days, I’ve been heading to the beaches after work and trying to soak up the last bit of hot sunshine that I’ll feel for a while. I also drove up to the highest mountain yesterday for one last beautiful view of the island. It’s kinda silly but whenever I go anywhere now, I think: “oh, this could be the last time I look around in this store, ride down this road, or swim at this beach”…etc. I know I’ll be back but probably not for a few years, at least.
My boss, Yiannis and his family invited me over for dinner last night; that was nice! Yiannis has two girls who are so cute! They would all like to come to Canada for a visit one day so I hope it happens; even if it is a few years away, it would be fun to see them all again!
I’ve pretty much organized all my stuff and have most of it packed, I’ll finish it all today. I think I’ll head to Punda Beach now, rent a chair, and have a frappe in the sun one last time. I leave on the ferry tomorrow morning then hang out in Athens and have a nice sleep on the airport bench till my early morning flight.
The next post will come from Prague, I arrive there on the 10th. I checked the weather and it looks like I’ll need an umbrella. That’s ok, I’m just looking forward to seeing the city and museums (especially the Mucha museum – one of my all time favorite artists). My hostel is right in the middle of the Old Town too which is great because I can walk to all of the main sights instead of taking buses or the metro.
Here are a few last random shots of Paros (and my little kitty):
