Visiting Samos


To see Visiting Samos

Samos, the third Greek Island that we visited was the least interesting of all (we used it as a starting point for a day trip to Turkey, and that was the best.

Anyway, time passed quickly and without boring moments.

Transports Visit Turkey


Our first visit to Turkey was in a day trip from the island to Kusadasi. It’s a short and cheap trip, and in Turkey they are very well organised to fill the day – Ephesus and Selçuk are interesting visits.

One day is enough, and a return ticket costs 35€ for a 75 minutes trip, 40 € returning the same day, and 55 € with open return.

Personal memories Tragedy with Olympic

In the eve of my flight to Samos, 18 people died in a plane crash in the island.

The bartender of Princess hotel was a nice guy, that knew (he said) 150 ways of making coffee, so he would find the Portuguese way.

He tried hard, we gave him all the possible suggestions, but after four attempts he couldn’t reach our tastes.

Yes, Portuguese is a complicated language, but Portuguese coffee is a n even more complicated matter.
