A Travellerspoint blog

Wil 20/3/16

Today is the first full day in Skopelos. Yesterday we arrived in Skopelos, we could see our hotel from the port. Danny came to meet us at the port and showed us the hotel, which is called The Hotel Regina. The view from the balcony is AMAZING!-

I only know a few words in Greek, Καλημέρα (pronounced kaliméra) good morning, yassou (pronounced yassoo) greeting (Health to you) You can use this to say hello or goodbye, and Καλημέρα (pronounced efcharistó) which means thank you. Google translate has a button you can press to hear the words.

Then we went to a monastery on Mt Palouki, which means "the finger". For the first bit of the way we walked. Danny had to do some work, but when he caught up to us we got to have a ride on his motor scooter!!!!!! It was soooooooooooooooooo fun, and we didn't wear helmets! The view from the top of the monestary is AWESOME,-

A monastery is a building or buildings that a bunch of nuns and monks live in. Usually there is just one in each monastery, but there were quite a few in the hills around Skopelos. The monastery looks super cool, there is a church in the centre surrounded by bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces. It looks like a giant maze when you're inside. The church has not much in it really, just a plaque and a bunch of chairs.
