The June challenge: in Naxos

So I haven’t posted to this challenge yet because I’m doubly challenged by it.  I have very few photos of myself on a bike from the deep past, and most of my stories and newer photos have already been blogged.  Here’s something though, more or less on the subject of time.  We’ve cycled in Greece three times now, and if the country will let us in we’re thinking hard about going back this fall.  On our first tour, we visited Naxos, a wonderful cycling island.  Also a great spot to have a romantic back-alley meal:

We liked Naxos so much that we managed to fit it in on our third tour also, and ate again in that same back alley:

And, if we are lucky enough to go back to Greece this fall, I’m pretty sure we’ll land in Naxos again so we can have a third reenactment to share here.  And we’ll likely to walk back out to the ruins of the Temple of Apollo (the featured image) for another look back at Naxos Town.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    One more picture from the back alley in Naxos would be great! Greece sounds like a good plan, and I expect they will be welcoming tourists.

    I hope you guys are able to make the Greece trip come to fruition. I can see from your blog that you two are getting restless being stuck in one country for so long.

    What are you doing for travel insurance? I didn’t think any had started to cover anything COVID-related yet. Some day, whenever they let us leave the country again, I suspect some Aussies would only travel to the 11 countries where we have reciprocal healthcare agreements (that still would only pay urgent care costs and not evacuation), given the challenges of finding coverage and the risks of getting the virus. Good luck – hope they find a vaccine sooner rather than later!!

      A good question, and thanks for the reminder. In the past we’ve always just relied on our coverage at home, which covers urgent care. Pushing our luck, I know. We need to look into getting travel insurance of some kind as added protection this time,
