Unexpected Naxos

Unexpected Naxos

WEDDING

I wanted to go to Naxos for a long time since I heard a lot about the uniqueness of this destination.  Therefore I decided to dedicate more days than the usual in order to explore without being rushed the island's legendary hinterland with its distant villages. What I encountered was beyond description. It was like a journey in time, something that only a few gifted places can offer. Early Christian churches scattered in the countryside, Venetian towers that are still inhabited by the families that built them, ancient farmlands and perennial trees in lost valleys, isolated mountain villages of incomparable beauty, churches hanging on rocky cliffs, beaches with a backdrop of abandoned industrial mining mechanisms …  That many extraordinary images altogether in a single place is definitely hard to come across.

Themis hails from Naxos and Tracy from Taiwan. They live in New York, but chose Naxos as the ideal place for their wedding, where together with friends and family who came from every corner of the world, they embraced one of the most important days of their lives. As far as myself concerned, I made new friends, met incredible characters, had a truly amazing time and saw one of the most beautiful places in Greece. Not too bad at all, if I am allowed to say...
