Luxetips Travel! Heaven on Earth: Nisyros, Greece
Know your worth.
One of the most memorable times I had in Greece on the MDFVoyage was visiting the Greek island of Nisyros. I call it “Heaven on Earth.” Why? Well take a look?
The island of Nisiros is a volcanic island in the Aegean Sea. It is also known for its breathtaking Greek Orthodox churches.
Inside the Greek Orthodox Church. The artwork was breathtaking!
While visiting this island, our fearless tour guide Ali, took us on a 4,000 mile high elevation to see this gorgeous Greek Orthodox church. I must admit, I didn’t think we would make it up or down the mountain because the road to this church was a simple dirt road with no railings. Yikes! I was literally crying and calling on “Jesus.” No lie. We even passed a slower car on the narrow road. The road was so narrow, in America we would call it a single lane….not double. I cried.
But the terrifying fear going up the mountain was worth it. Have you ever in life seen anything like this???
Our driver, Stavros, was literally Adonis in the flesh. All the women on the excursion, young and old, were salivating. Like really?? Thank God he was an excellent driver. And ladies a lot of the men on the island looked just like him…Spartan.
We also visited the crater of the volcano. Yes, we went deep into the crater and it smelled like sulfur. Not a pleasant smell and it was hot in the crater, but how many people can say they walked the crater floor of a volcano? Priceless.
Nisyros, Greece was most memorable because:
1. I had to face my fear of heights and put my life in control of our driver. I just had to let go.
2. I had great Calamari on the island.
3. The Greek Orthodox Church in the Sky, was stunning.
4. The island is the prettiest island we visited.
5. Adonis! LOL!
