A selection of images from Aegina Island, Greece.

This week’s Blog is photography of The Island of Aegina, not so far from Athens. An interesting Island with great beaches and small pretty villages as well as a fantastic harvest of Pistachios. Arguably one of the main attractions of Aegina is that it is a real living and working island. Thankfully not a victim of mass tourism, Aegina is the perfect destination for the independent traveller who yearns to experience some reality of the country she is visiting. Those who are well travelled in Greece will note that Aegina is not as “manicured” as some islands popular with foreign tourists. It hosts mainly Greek weekend visitors. This simply adds to the charm. Populair sites to visit are: the temple of Aphaia and the church of Agios Nektarios. Learn more about the traditions and culture of Aegina on this website.
