Kythnos – a sparce island in the Western Cyclades

At the beginning of 2016, my two friends Chris and Frank visited me for a long weekend here in Athens.

We decided not to stay here and booked spontaneously ferry tickets from Athens to the island of Kythnos. We had no idea how that island looked like, we had no idea what to do there, but we were extremly exited about the upcoming tour to this little Cycladic island.

And of course it was about time to portrait my friends.

After a strong coffee and a pleasant bus ride to the port of Lavrio, we took the ferry to Kythnos and arrived at late afternoon.

We had a relaxing tour through it’s small village called Merihas, had dinner and went to sleep early. Next morning we stared with a breakfast 2 meters away from the water, rented a car and started our exploration of the island.

Chris suffered from a strong sunburn.

We continued our trip and found these old mining brigdes – which I wasgoing to see more often this years, during my time on Serifos.

Of course I had to climb on it.

On our way back, we came across this stunning view over Kythnos. It’s a charming little island – yet far too cliffy and raw for my taste.

Near the heliport we found this little gem. A colourful flowerbed.

Ideal for some portraits – yet we had to convince Chris to pose for us.
