Samian dreamscapes / dreamscapes on Samos, part 2

15 minutes long, here is the second part of "samian dreamscapes", a small series of videos about the natural beauty of the manyfold landscapes on this water-rich greek east aegean island.

This time I included longer sequences showing material I recorded in the valleys of the brooks Potami and Imvrassos.

And, like shown at the end of the video, don't forget to visit one or more of the festivals in Summer, or one of the many panigiria taking place in the villages all over Samos.

Most of the video material was recorded during springtime on Samos. (months of May and June, 2010 and 2011). In May 2011, the island was especially green, nature was very late then, three weeks behind "schedule", due to low temperatures in April.

Did you miss "samian dreamscapes, part 1"? No problem, here is the link to the video!

Captain Antonis

Captain Antonis/Adonis is one of the captains in the picturesque harbour of Pythagorion. He has a very beautiful boat called Chryso T.

And he likes to sing and play the bouzouki! If he is not on his boat, you might find him in the tavern just opposite to his boat.

You will find his and the other captains boats when you walk down the main street to the harbour of Pythagorion and then turn to the right (boats in the following order: captains Jiannis, Gerasimos, Vasilis, Andreas and Adonis).

The captains offer daily cruises (or shuttle service) with their boats to beaches e.g. on Samiopoula, at Kerveli, Psili Ammos (east), Tsopela Bay and Kakorema bay. A day with one of these captains on the sea going to a remote beach, for sure this is a special adventure to be undertaken!
