It’s Greece’s 3rd highest mountain with peak of 1626 metres above sea level and stretches as far as the outlying villages of Poros in the South. The forest on mount Ainos was declared a National Park in 1962. There is an abundance of flora and fauna- great for nature lovers and walkers. If you are lucky you may also spot the last few remaining wild horses living on the south eastern slopes.
- St, Georgios Castle – The castle of St George dates back to Byzantine times but the castles form that you will see now dates to the sixteenth century. Within up to 82 ft high and 20 ft thick walls, 8000 people found shelter whenever pirates or hostile forces attacked. It was the capital of the island until 1757.
- Drogarati Cave – a naturally formed cave that is at least 150 million years old, 1.5 miles from Sami. It has steps leading down in to the depths of the earth with a very impressive path, comfortable to walk on, has been hammered out between the huge stalactites and stalagmites. Because of its fantastic acoustics, Drogarati cave during the summer is often used for musical concerts and performances.
- Melissani Lake – is one of the island wonders. It is a stunning underground lake with the most stunning crystal blue water and is truely beautiful. Most of the roof of the cave collapsed during the earthquake of 1953. The rocks at the bottom of the lake cause the water to shimmer in all shades of green and blue. Small rowing boats manned by experienced guides take you into the cave giving you an amazing viewpoint of the stalactites which are over 1000 years old. In ancient times the cave was used as a place of worship of the God Pan and the nymph Melissan.

Hello ladies! We’re still in the installment of reminiscing the whole year 2011 with our loved one.
Now, let’s talk about the places we’ve been this year. It could be a new place you’ve visited or a place that you’ve revisited this year and is close to your heart.
We didn’t go far on a travel this year. The farthest is a day tour in Batangas. We were able to visit hubby’s tita’s vacation house in Batangas. had a chance to unwind for a bit. All you do there is eat and take pictures.
We went to Tagaytay three times this year.
One of the restos we visited was RSM where one of our friends made a surprise engagement proposal. Great food!
I was a bit culture-shocked going around Ayala and Greenbelt Malls. It’s very different from when the time we’re still dating. But it’s good to be back to where we used to spent time together when we’re just getting to know each other.
