“Thassos is a handsome, romantic little island, named after a grandson of Poseidon, with an atmosphere of calm beatitude which makes one’s sleep most deep and refreshing, the nights being blanket-cool, though windless, not too hot…. In the calm vernal glades of Thassos you feel that the ancients had a simpler, better way of living…” – Lawrence Durrell
I am by no means sure how we managed to choose the island of Thassos for a holiday. Not being one of the most popular holiday islands it was not somewhere that I was especially aware of or had any mad desire to go to so I can only assume that it was the end of season bargain price that settled the selection decision.
Thanks for reading and commenting on my snowdrops post across on Blogger. Have you considered putting a final post on your own Blogger site (inactive since 2012) linking to your WordPress site so that anyone who follows up your Blogger profile from your comment finds you?
That is a good idea. Thanks. I just abandoned blogger when I moved to WP.
Been a small native islander myself always look with nostalgia to them. However times change and now won’t even go to these islands all the same…
Islands have a special charm. I am in Cyprus right now.
