On my second day in Greece, still kind of jet lagged and tired, my friends & I hopped a 3 hour bus ride/3 hour ferry ride/2 hour bus ride to the beautiful (and less known) island of Kefallonia.
I didn’t know very much about it until going there because it’s not an island that’s visited by tourists the way that Santorini is. It’s mostly Greek families that go there on vacation or other nearby European countries that fly in.
But you guys, it’s BEAUTIFUL. I stayed there for 8 nights & 9 days with Agnes’ family in a cute little apartment in the village of Monopolata. Saying goodbye to them and to our new friends was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do.
Okay so this where Kefalonia is located in Greece:
See on the upper left side? Right next to the Ionian sea? There it is!
The island is VERY big. The roads wind around the corners of cliffs at every turn (which is like, every 5 seconds) and you better pack some Gravol because the bus drivers there don’t slow down. They know what they’re doing.
It’s so beautiful. I didn’t know a remote island could BE so beautiful. It’s like the Greek countryside basically. Everyone who lives there only goes in the summer, so no one has TV’s, internet, computers, telephones or anything like that. You’re just living there and eating and going to the beach.
Here are some pictures from my time there:
Skala Beach, another really famous one on the island & one of my personal faves from my whole trip. It was not only gorgeous, but the sand was made up of soft stones & we all brought home a bagful of beautiful ones. Love!
So that was basically my 9 days in pictures! We spent a lot of time at the beach (obviously) but we also did a lot of visiting the island. I’ll definitely save my stories for another post though. For now, I’ll leave you with these pictures while I go get ready for breakfast with a friend!
