Blue waters, amazing seabed, mountainous villages with white houses, cute taverns and probably the loveliest Chora of the Cyclades.
The last itinerary of the speedboat, around the middle of October, marks the end of the summer season for the island of Amorgos. The people at the port are few and far between. Tears well up either with nostalgia or with relief that the summer is coming to an end.
I grew up in Athens. The first time I visited Amorgos was in 1998, at the urging of my brother. Until then, I preferred to go on vacation to Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Crete, like most people my age.
