A Visit to the Dodecanese, part two: Symi

Surprise cats! Everywhere!

As per usual after a nice trip, I’m full of dreams of further travel. Italy next year? Istanbul? (Being so close to Turkey really made me want to go.) If only time and money weren’t limited resources.

  1. So much loveliness!!! Your photos are utterly enchanting, my dear!

And very beautiful too, and I am ever more keenly jealous. You should definitely go to Istanbul next time! Make sure to tell me about it! I yearn and yearn to go to Istanbul; Italy too. But it's starting to look like (oh dear I don't want to jinx it by speaking too soon) I might possibly go to India next year? I want to SO MUCH; it's just the money I need to sort out.

  3. I didn't know about the island of Symi either. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos it looks idyllic.
