On Lesvos it is always a good idea to have swimming gear along
Our routes often take us along donkey tracks, old pilgrim trails and long forgotten stony mountain paths, sometimes crossing streams, scrambling over scree and boulders, fences and hedges. On the way maybe meeting up with donkeys, sheep and goats, perhaps a falcon, buzzard or jay even a tortoise or salamander.
Although a midday break is mostly taken at a rural taverna, sometimes with grandiose scenic views or directly overlooking the Aegean, one should always have an adequate snack and plenty to drink in the rucksack.
