Postcard from Greece- Thassos

Thassos is reputedly the Greek island from Homers Odyssey on which the Sirens lived,luring Odysseus into staying for many a year when he should have been going home. It’s our favourite Greek island, and we have been ten times now. We are not alone, we chatted to some people on the ferry leaving the island and this had been there 13th visit.

I have divided the pics across two posts. Enjoy!
