Koukougelis Dimitris
In the shadow of the old plane tree, in the amphitheatrical square “Avgerinos”, were laid the ruins of the stone building, a pile of garbage and stones, which represented the "shame" of this graphic and amphitheatrical square. A folksy house, whose time travel began in the early or in the mid of 19th century, sensed the breath, the crying and the delight of the locals, the travelers and the warriors of life, and followed the fate of abandonment, that wars and poverty imposed. And now comes the right decision to revive and accept travelers, who come to live days of tranquility and authenticity, and savor the quality of Greece. In this authentic habitat, they will see, will live and find out, that “Tourism” does not mean subordination, does not mean whatever home, that holiday in Greek islands is neither just “ROOMS TO LET”, nor the impersonal low/high-stars room. This “Tourism”, constitutes the reflection of this island’s history. And that is the story that this house is going to recount, the new decade of the 21st century.
Dimitris-Biologist, married with Evaggelia-Biologist, a daughter Nena-Biologist and a son George-hope not Biologist. Born at the North Greece, live at the South (Rhodes island) and hope to travel to the West (America) and to the East (Japan). I love cycling and drink ouzo with friends.
Symi island,the Lady of the Aegean will amaze you with her beauty from the time the ship enters the harbor.The entire residential complex of Symi has been designated as a "traditional settlement" and indeed it is the largest in the countryIs it worthy to climb the "kali strata" (the oldest commercial street in Symi), in the liopyri (in the summer heat in the dialect of Symi)? The answer to this is a definitive YES for four reasons: First, to discover the secret of the good life of the Symians who are characterized by their slim figure. Five hundred wide stone stairs, climbed at a slow pace and diagonally, as the locals have for years now, the uphill path from busy Yialos to the Horio. Secondly to admire the neoclassical houses with a thousand colors, once inhabited by merchants and captains of the island. The largest village square is the People's Association. Walk around the square admire the traditional architecture of Symi and visit the Petinaki and four-storey house of the Hatziagapitou – Hatziioannou families. Near the Hatziagapitou house, is the Farmakidis house, which houses the Archaeological-Folklore Museum of Symi.
