My corner of paradise in Mytilene, by Valentina (Suzanne Level 8)
If you've really got tired of your bustling city, where the streets are always packed and people live like tinned sardines side by side ... come with me and have a pleasing rest in the surprising island of Mytilene! With its amazing seashore and unspoilt landscape, Mytilene is really off the beaten track, lying in the heart of the Aegean Sea, close to the Turkish coastline.
In the tranquil town of Erbessos you'll breathe a sense of history, strolling among the run-down buildings of the old city centre, where delicious mouth-watering aromas spread from the small houses and the old-fashioned restaurants. Come and sit on the dock of the bay in a peaceful atmosphere, gazing at the coloured boats and chatting with the fishermen working at their nets.
Enjoy your stay swimming in the turquoise sea or sailing on a bright blue day, totally plunged in a marvellous scenery rich in natural beauty and diversity. And if you're lucky, you'll see the fabulous exhibition of the lively dolphins playing with the seagulls in the white wake of the ships!
You'll discover an absolutely charming island, ancient Lesbos, which was also the birth place of the famous greek poetess Sappho, born in the VII centuty BC. Come and taste the typical Greek drink named "ouzo", comfortably sitting in front of the stunning sunset, and forget all your boring problems for a few days!
