My favorite part when going to the Greek Islands is the boat ride! even if that means getting up at 5am to get to the port. This mini getaway was just what I needed after 5 weeks of intense learning with Lilla. The boat ride was 5 hours and it gave me time to just relax and get into summer mode :)
As soon as I got to Sifnos I went to hang the paintings, but Nikos had already done that and also displayed a few of them in the courtyard.

Can I tell you, I think I gained a couple of lbs from all the fabulous food I had there. This island is famous for its food! omg!! I'm glad it was only a weekend because at the rate I was going...I just couldn't say no to anything that was offered to me!
I'm only posting pics from the courtyard, because the indoor pictures came out lousy.. I'll have to retake them when I go back.
One of my favorite places in sifno, is the Kastro,which means castle. It's built on a hill and has five entrances which were gated with iron at one time, to protected against pirates.
The Kastro is like a labyrinth, with very narrow streets, and now is full of small cafes, bars and shops.
Walking these cobblestone streets is like walking in a different era, it's just so beautiful!!

The views are just spectacular and very dramatic!!
Have any of you been to Greece?


  1. It is all so beautiful! Good luck with your show.

  2. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos, it all looks lovely, and you too! Enjoy your stay and good luck! Valerie

  3. Never been to Greece, being a fair skinned burner, but your photos in the courtyard look as though there a cool spots to get out of the sun. You look so happy, Joanna. xo Carole

  4. Terrific photos and this place looks stunning as do you dear Joanna. Am sure your artwork will be a huge success, hugs Annette x

  5. Joanna,
    Sifnos looks like a peaceful and beautiful place. You look so cute in the picture where you are painting. It shows you creating and working on your art work, which is what you do so well. That picture should be framed.

    Have a nice afternoon.
