You know those screen savers that have clear blue water, with white houses and blue domes? That’s Paros island, Greece. It is the most picturesque environment you can imagine. It’s tiny but packed with adventure.
We are staying right near the port of Parikia at a place called Jimmy’s Apartments. Each room comes with a beautiful view that makes you never want to stay in side. It’s centrally located where you have easy access to all the restaurants (which I’m OBSESSED with), shops, beaches and of course the school!
24,552 is the number of steps I took on my first full day of Paros Island. We went from Parikia (where we are staying), to Prodromos on the north side of the island, and we saw everything in between. From visiting the 100 Door Church, to climbing up mountains to reach ancient ruins and hiking the Byzantine Trail it made for an awesome day, but a not so awesome sun burn!
Everywhere I turn I see something new and different. There is never a dull moment on Paros.
