Hello friend, its been a while, I hope you guys are doing fine. I’m going through some changes in my life that’s why I’ve been busy and not being able to write for some time now. The good news is, I’m healthy and happy as always just wanted to tell you about the time my friend and I spent in Aegina Island.

Let’s start with the heat, ok is it just me who finds this summer as being super hot than ever!! I don’t know where you are but it has been hot here in Greece.  And this year, I’ve visited the beach more than I’ve ever done in the past years. Let me tell you about our two nights in Aegina Island.

I had my friend Kaisa come over to see me, she lives in Finland and we haven’t seen each other for 2yrs. It is always good to have time with friends but it’s not easy when they are miles away. We wanted to go somewhere not too far from the city. Greece has a lot of close Islands that you can go to anytime and that’s what makes Greece unique.

We checked and we both settled for Aegina. It is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece in the Saronic Gulf, 27 kilometres (17 miles) from Athens.  Before we get to the good time spend, I would like to talk about the hotel that we booked. We spent our nights at the Galini Hotel, it’s actually located in Agia marina side of Aegina island.  What my friend did, she forgot and booked a ferry that docks at Aegina port and not the Agia marina port. We had to take a taxi it’s not that far, it was about a 20 minutes ride.

I would advise taking a ferry that will dock at the Agia marina port. The town is very small not much to see but they do have nice sandy beaches. I have a short video summing up our trip you can watch it below. Nightlife is a no in this Island, so if you are expecting to go for a dance, that’s not possible for you sorry.
