In Lipsi there is no airport, no hospital, very few inhabitants, and when
I took these pictures in 2018 (I didn't have the Reflex yet), mass tourism had not arrived yet at the end of June. Here you come to stay in
peace, explore the island and enjoy the blue sea together with the splendid Greek sun.
The silence is broken only by the sound of the waves of the sea and, when one moves away from the beach a bit, even from the goat bells. They are the characteristic sounds from these parts of Greece. You'll love it ...
Just as you will fall in love with these splendid little churches (photo 1) with the blue roofs that are scattered a little everywhere. Some are open, others closed, but the best part is to climb a hill, to walk for a while is to find these buildings perfectly preserved over time...
Here, in Lipsi, you can get lost in the streets of the village in search of a
restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious Mediterranean meal. Although there are no crowds of other Greek islands, some evenings you may already find some full
restaurants, especially the most famous ones or those with sea view (not necessarily the same).
But breathing this peace and the quiet of the place after a city panorama like this (photo 2) is always worthwhile.
Photo 3: These are the colors of Greece, the real one. The blue of the sea, of the sky and of the houses.
The cottage that welcomed me for a few days with its splendid sea view.
I do not advertise, but those who have been here will certainly recognize this charming hotel in Lipsi.
Photo 4: the food photography could not miss in a place where eating is a
pleasure and in which the Mediterranean cuisine is incredibly enhanced by local products.
Needless to waste time describing the photos. If you want to appreciate all this there is only one way: come here and eat.
For this reason I will pass here again this year.
