Final Rest in Kythira

A few days after i arrived on Kythira my friends father passed away. Not nice but a chance to see how they do it in Greece. Interesting customs and all so different from back home. At last everybody on the island gets his last ride in a Mercedes Benz 300 T-Model. And the graveyard in Kythira has a great view – at last as long as you are not 6 feet down.

There are 2 bodies in the grave so he will not be lonely – as they are now 3

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
