Tinos in September

The Cycladic island of Tinos is probably one of my favourite places in the world. Objectively, it’s not the most beautiful place in the world, but it’s one of the few places I have been coming back to for my entire life. Also because it’s primary attraction is a church, it has managed (at least until now) to escape massive development and tourism.

When I was a kid we only visited Tinos in the summer, but since I’ve lived in Greece I’ve had a chance to visit in the spring and in the autumn, when the island has a different appeal. Last year I went only for a few days in September – didn’t even manage to swim, but did do a lot of exploring. Perhaps one of the best parts about visiting that time of year – pomegranates!

    Tinos is where you first figured out there were two words for “water” – we were at the platia off the parking area and a woman was talking to her grandchildren by the fountain. You already knew “water” and learned “nero” was the same thing. The beginnings of your incredible gift for languages at age 2 and a half. I too have wonderful memories of the island and cannot wait to return this summer. It’s been a long time!
