The Summer Lo-down

This page is for all the ex-pats and other lovers of Ithaca who come back to visit regularly and have become  part of Ithacas 'Summer' furniture. 

Who's here, who's doing what, who got too drunk to remember last night...

All the Tour companies are settling in for the Summer Season on Ithaca. From now on we'll see ferry boats full of eager tourists being settled in by eager Tour reps. Fun is in the air.

It's time for the Tour Management reps to be out in force again. Here are a couple working out their stategies hanging around a corner in Vathy. Nice tans.

Niko in his fire truck. A timely reminder to put those cigarettes out in an ashtray and not in the fields. Last years rain has made for a lush, green island, which with the summer heat could make quite a bonfire. Please be careful everyone.


It's June 22nd and Nikos Karantzis is back from Athens ready to start his Spavento night-shift behind the Bar.



In Kioni there is a big debate going on about extending the concrete 5 meters into the bay. Some residents are for it the others against it. It was thought this issue had been settled with the voting in of the current Representative who agreed this extension should not be developed. Yiorgos Karantzis from Spavento Bar has a petition going AGAINST the development. Show your support for or against by emailing us here and we will pass them on.

great big fish

July 3rd - These two great big fish are what Nikos Douglas (LEFT) pulled out of the bay today. It took all his strength to lift them a little for the camera.

August 20th - The answer is NO. The signed petition against the development was presented to the council and thus was given the thumbs down.

The Police are back booking everyone who drives without a seatbelt, is on the road without their papers eg. lisence, insurance, identity card etc., and for not wearing helmets on scooters and motorbikes. Of course these are reasonable requests, except for carrying important papers in the car, keeping in mind that if the car gets stolen, all the papers you need to prove ownership are then in the hands of the thief, and that the police themselves, are usually seen without seatbelts or helmets. Who's policing them?


Monday 11th of August , the North Ithacan football club is putting on a concert at Polis Beach to raise money for the Club. Athens Rock/Funk band 'Oh My Garden" will be playing their original tunes with the help of young local band Overdrive in support. . Night starts at 22.30

Nektarios and Paul

September 1st - Summer is officially over. Let's play! The Frikes rubbish cart/ Go Cart is used here by Paul (simply Ionian)to get his childhood kicks while Nectarios finally gets to push someone around. Vroom Vroom. "Faster! Faster!" "Look mum, no hands."


September 12th - It's back in front of the Tv for the locals. Basketball time!
