Lesvos, Greece

I've been travelling quite a bit this year for work. I even got a chance to visit Greece twice in two months. I will start with the last trip as it is stil very fresh.

The Island of Lesvos was known to me mainly from the literature classes on the poet Sappho. Otherwise it never called special attention to me. And I have never considered it as a holiday destination, like other Greek islands: Crete, Santorini, Corfu etc.

After visiting it, I'm still not convinced I would return for a holiday. But as the occasion of visiting arrived, for sure I was more than happy to take it.

At first glance Lesvos gives a mediocre impression as quite plain island. But when taking a closer look, it charms with its diversity and quite colourful details.

As the principal reason of my visit was work, I didn't had much time to visit around. I stayed just outside the capital Mitilini and there was just enough time to see the south part of the island.
