Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur, An Evening in Folegandros

Folegandros Hora, Greek Cycladic Islands

What a fabulous island Folegandros is and completely safe in my top five list of personal favourites.

We first visited in 2007 and the village squares were colourful, vibrant and bursting with an eclectic energy that spilled into the streets from the balconies and terraces of the bars and restaurants.  It was an enchanting place with picturesque settings plucked straight from the pages of a travel book, pretty squares with restaurants under trees where visitors were struggling to make menu selections next to local people just sitting and talking and passing the evening away.

The streets were alive with friendly people and there was an unspoilt ambience that drew us down twisting side streets and through narrow alleys that led always to even more clusters of inviting tavernas that made choosing a dining venue very difficult indeed.  Eventually we selected a table at the side of the main square and we enjoyed excellent food and amused ourselves people watching as there was a constant stream of local people and holiday makers moving continuously through the pretty square.

  1. I could handle an evening or two there without any trouble 😉 Thank you for sharing, Andrew


  2. This sounds a delightful and inviting place to visit.
    Interesting how the blur on one side of the photo compares to the clarity and sharpness on the other side. 🙂


  3. I haven’t even heard of this island. I expect I will need to do a full trip just roaming from island to island based on your suggestions Andrew. 🙂 Perhaps you could ask for a commission from Greece’s Tourism Board.
