To celebrate turning yet another year older, I spent the weekend in Agistri.

It had been two years since our last visit to Evia, and it was a last minute decision to go (as both The Boyfriend and I had forgotten about the May 1st holiday), but it was a perfectly relaxing trip, something we both sorely needed.

I've always had a strange, distant relationship with my family, but after the trip to Australia to see my mother, it only seemed right to take a trip to France to meet with my father. It was a much shorter trip and the time passed quickly, but I enjoyed the time I spent there and expect to return again.

It had been almost eight years since my last time in Thessaloniki, passing through on the way to Samothraki. As IAMX, one of my favourite bands, was playing a show up there, it seemed like a pretty good excuse for a getaway.

For the first time in years, I went to a Greek island during the high season. It's been something I've avoided over the years because I'm not a huge fan of crowds (or following the herd), and the prices are often ridiculously high. However, this year, after having to cancel my usual summer trip to the UK and a postponement of a hoped for trip to Crete, I decided that my birthday was an excellent excuse to venture to an island. I picked Kythnos...

Agistri is a small island just a short ferry ride from Piraeus, and along with a few friends, the plan was to catch an early morning ferry and spend the day at the beach. Except things didn't quite work out and my friends missed the ferry, so instead it was just The Boyfriend and I (not that that's a bad thing!)

I'm not sure this really counts as a proper getaway, as I was barely gone for 24 hours and did no adventuring around the city. I left Athens, but I failed at taking photos.

I'd not been to Patra in five years and it hadn't left me with the best impression. But, one of my favourite bands, Still Corners were doing three dates in Greece, I made it to one in Athens (obviously) and the one in Patra. If only the Thessaloniki date had been on the weekend!
