Across the Aegean Sea, among the most inaccessible and invisible parts of the barren rocks, a priceless treasure is hidden.
White touches that are in total contrast with the bare landscape and the deep blue sea. Real gems and «monuments» of the cultural world heritage.
The magnificent  Villages of the Archipelagos!

For many people, the journey is just an escape from the strictly planned daily routines. But beyond that there is something more essential. If we reflect a little deeper, we will see that the impact of everyday life on us is so invisible and so powerful that it really dulls all our senses.

Waiting until the afternoon so that the winds would die down, we left Kythnos behind and we sailed northern to Livadi of Serifos. Cruising with the wind on our quarter port it didn’t take us long to reach the eastern coast of the island and we covered the distance of the 22 miles that separated us from the island in about an hour.

It is a group of small islands located in the heart of the Aegean, in the triangle of Naxos- Amorgos-Ios. The most important of them are Koufonissia, Schinoussa, Irakleia, Keros and a little farther away Donousa.

It is between Heraklia and Kato Koufonisi and it is separated from them by narrow channels of a few hundred meters. Having the most indented coastline of the other islands of the group, and many sheltered bays, it offers the biggest number of beaches and is an ideal place for those who prefer a relaxed and solitary holiday.

A very narrow channel of only 200 meters separates Pano from Kato Koufonisi, and for the last years they are both among the most attractive destinations in the Aegean.

At the crack of dawn, we left the marina of Ano Koufonisi behind and our bow was pointing at Donousa. But this time, we were not cruising for the port of Stavros but for the deserted Kalotaritissa at 17 nautical miles.

From the bay of Kalotaritissa of the island Donousa we sailed towards Kalotaritissa of Amorgos, which is on the southwestern side of the island. A large bay, which is the only natural harbor of Amorgos, is protected from all kinds of weather.

It has been years now since I realised that our destination is not an island or a beautiful windless harbour. These are simply stations of our traced courses.Our actual destination is... the journey itself!

By Thomas Panagiotopoulos

Whenever I travel
Tracing the sea, I feel I’m hovering.
In the air, not necessarily in the few inches of the hull
That touches the water,
But between reality and dream.
>Besides that very moment, is in any case magical...

The last stop of our wanderings in Cyclades was Antiparos and the nearby island called Despotiko. It is 50 nautical miles away, in direct course from Anafi. The strong wind, however, caused many troubles to the starboard bow of the rib.
