  • A little information about Jordan
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan or simply Jordan is a Middle Eastern country. It borders with Syria in the north with Iraq in the north east with Saudi Arabia in the east and south and finally with Israel in the west. The total population of the country is about 10 million and is entirely Arab. Most Jordanians are Sunni Muslims while there are many Shiites and Ahmadis. The King is the supreme leader of the State. The prime minister oversees the work of the government and rules in co-operation with the king. You have to know that people love the king very much and have photos of him everywhere in buildings and shops. Whenever you want to ask something , it  should be with absolute respect. The main source of revenue is tourism unfortunately since 2011 after the war in Syria there is a sharp decline. Jordan is also one of the most important gastronomic destinations in the world.


  • Is it safe to travel to Jordan?
As I said before, Jordan has lost a lot of tourism since the war in neighboring Syria. Many tourists are afraid to travel to the Middle East. My friend Mohammed told us that all these years the war has n't affected his country at all. An important factor in this played out is that there is no oil in Jordan. The only problem is the appeals who have downgraded the area to the north of the country where the  are the borders with Syria . Something similar to our islands in the Aegean. From the first moment at the airport you will feel the warmth of the Jordanians who welcome you to their country. Five days in the country I never felt any danger or even threatening my life.

  • The weather in Jordan and when to go
The ideal time to go to Jordan is Spring, the temperature is good and the day is long. Surely you will not travel in the summer as with high temperatures you will be able to enjoy almost nothing. in Jordan it takes a lot of walking to most of the places to visit but also to the capital Amman. However, because many people travel in the spring, tickets are expensive. I suggest you go in the autumn as we did. the temperature was like our summer max 33 and night 18. The only downside is that you should wake up earlier, eg 07:00 since the day lasts less than summer (especially in November).

  • What about the visa in Jordan?
Traveling to Amman the visa is necessary and costs 40JD ~ 51EURO. However if staying more than 3 nights then it is advisable to take out the jordan pass. which costs 70JD including visa and access to all archaeological sites and sightseeings . You can find more information here. Consider that only the entrance to Petra has only 50JD. If you are traveling to Aqaba then you do not need to get a visa.

Jordarian dollars

  • Where to make Exchange?
When traveling within Europe countries, I prefer to get ATMs from the national bank of each country, However in Jordan it is best to make a change to a western union. There is a maximum withdrawal amount from atm and it is 250 JD as a result you will probably be raised twice so you pay twice commission etc. If you want to withdraw from ATMs Bank Al Etihad has the lowest commission.

On the Road

  • Can I rent a car?
If you are familiar with driving to other countries of course and you can do it. in Jordan they drive from the right. Petrol has 0.70-1.03 liters depending on the region. If I remember correctly, TotalsJ Jordan were the cheapest . 



  • Special Tip 
We were very lucky on this trip since we had Mohamed with us. Ηe likes to meet new people and make new friends. It is not a travel guide whose purpose is to make a profit. From the airport and for five days we met Jordan not as tourists. We got in touch with Jordanians of our age, we danced together with our own and their own dances and we learned a lot about their country. Having Mohammed with us saved us a lot of money since he knew the language and was always looking for the best for us. If you are traveling to Jordan soon do not hesitate to send me to get in touch with him!

Οι καλύτερες Τιμές για Δωμάτια !! Booking.com Ταξιδεύοντας  με πορισμό την Ελαφόνησο για camping στην ξακουστή παραλία του Σίμου . Τρία χρόνια προσπαθώ να επισκεφτώ το νησί και όλο κάτι στραβώνει και τελικά δεν τα καταφέρνω . Δυστυχώς και αυτή την φορά κάτι προέκυψε...Μία περίπου ώρα ο πριν φτάσω στο λιμάνι της Πούντας για να πάρω το ferry boat κάναμε  μια στάση στο χωριό Άσωπος για ενα καφεδάκι . Εκείνη την στιγμή που περιμένουμε τους καφέδες έρχεται ειδοποίηση στο κινητό μου "φωτιά στην Ελαφόνησο"!! Μετά από λίγα λεπτά άλλη ειδοποίηση "εκκενώνεται το camping " στο μεταξύ έχουν περάσει είδη δύο πυροσβεστικά οχήματα .Όπως καταλαβαίνεται έπρεπε να αλλάξουμε γρήγορα πλάνο . Μετά από ένα μικρό meeting καταλήξαμε στα "άγνωστα" μέχρι τότε Κύθηρα .Με μια γρήγορη αναζήτηση τα Κύθηρα είχαν πάρα πολλά να δούμε και το βασικότερο έχουν camping . Κατευθείαν μπαίνουμε στην μηχανή και φεύγουμε για Νεάπολη από όπου αναχωρεί το πλοίο για το νησί .

Υπάρχουν δύο τρόποι για να φτάσεις στο νησί είτε από Πειραιά είτε από Λαύριο μέσω της εφαρμογής  Ferryscanner  βρήκαμε και κλείσαμε τα εισιτήρια μας . 

Το καράβι αναχωρεί στις 08:00 Οπότε ένα γρήγορο καφέ φορτώνουμε τη μπέμπα και φεύγουμε για Λαύριο. Αφού φτάνουμε στο λιμάνι θα περάσουμε από το πρακτορείο να παραλάβουμε τα εισιτήρια και θα επιβιβαστούμε στο πλοίο.


Η Κύθνος απέχει περίπου  δύο ώρες από το λιμάνι του Λαυρίου βρίσκεται ανάμεσα στην Κέα και την Σέριφο. Με μια μικρή αναζήτηση στο google είδα ότι έχει δύο μεγάλα χωρία τη χώρα της Κύθνου ή Μεσαριά  και τη Δρυοπίδα αλλά και τρις κύριοι παραθαλάσσιοι οικισμοί…

ΤΑΞΙΔΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΙΟΡΔΑΝΙΑ ~ ΤΙ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΓΝΩΡΙΖΕΙΣ ΠΡΙΝ ΠΑΣ

Λίγα λόγια για την Χώρα 
Το Χασεμιτικό Βασίλειο της Ιορδανίας ή απλά Ιορδανία  είναι μια χώρα  της Μέσης Ανατολής. Συνορεύει με τη Συρία στα Βόρεια με το Ιράκ στα Βόρεια ανατολικά με την Σαουδική Αραβία στα ανατολικά και νότια  και τέλος με το Ισραήλ στα δυτικά . Ο συνολικός  πληθυσμός της Χώρας φτάνει τα  περίπου 10 εκατομμύρια και είναι εξολοκλήρου άραβες . Οι περισσότεροι Ιορδανοί είναι Σουνίτες μουσουλμάνοι ενώ υπάρχουν αρκετοί Σίτες και Αχμάντι. Ο Βασιλιάς του Κράτους είναι ο ανώτερος υπάλληλος του Κράτους . O πρωθυπουργός επιβλέπει το έργο της κυβέρνησης και κυβερνάει σε συνεργασία με το βασιλιά . Πρέπει να γνωρίζεις ότι οι άνθρωποι αγαπούν και σέβονται  πάρα πολύ τον βασιλιά και την οικογένεια του , παντού θα δείς φωτογραφίες τους  .  Αν θέλετε να ρωτήσετε κάτι να το κάνετε  με απόλυτο σεβασμό . Η κύρια πηγή εσόδων είναι ο τουρισμός δυστυχώς από το 2011 μετά το πόλεμο στη Συρία υπάρχει ραγδαία πτώση . Η Ιορδανία επίσης είναι ένας από τους σημαντικότερους γαστρονομικούς προορισμ…

Exploring Berlin

Μost travelers choose to visit Berlin , the Capital of Germany is the heart of Europe and full of history It’s maybe not the prettiest European city but if you’re interested in Nightlife or culture  you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Berlin .The locals are very hospitable and polite.There are many immigrants from all over Europe.they create a very warm atmosphere and from day to day you fall in love with this city.


We chose to visit the city in the autumn but the best time is the summer.Because many concerts and events take place in and around the city.Cycling will be more enjoyable in the big parks that the city offers from Brandenburg Tor to Zoologischer garten berlin .


We were lucky the weather was wonderful. From the very first moment we rented a bicycle to explorer the city and we bought the Berlin Welcome card which we have free access to public transport and discount a variety of museums and attractions (Berlin Welcome Card). Driving a bike is very safe. Most locals u…

TOP 5 BEACHES IN ATHENS

Kape Sounio


I think it is the best beach of Athena. while you are there, you will think you are making a holiday on a small island of the Cyclades. If you have visited the Poseidon Temple in Sounio then make a stop for a little swim. There is a nice bar where you can enjoy a cool beer overlooking the Aegean .The beach is not organized, so you will need an umbrella






 Sesi Beach


It is located outside the village of Sesi, 22 km from the Marathon Tomb and just 45 minutes from Athens , beach with fine pebbles and sand, crystal clear waters and salt lakes , ideal for families. There is also a small tavern where you can eat something if you are hungry . I suggest you get to the beach early in the morning because later there will not be enough parking space for your car. The road is good , only 200 meters from the coast the road becomes dirt if you do not have a jeep it would be better to leave the car back and walking to the beach.





Τsonima Beach


At a distance of 20 kilometers from the center…
