Sifnos Chronicles 2: more greek island tales

Sifnos Chronicles 2: more greek island tales

Author(s): Sharon Blomfield

Location(s): Sifnos

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Travelogue

Era(s): present day

A taverna … a monstrous platter of fish … then a second. We didn’t order these, don’t really like fish. But they’re a gift, the cook is watching and the giver is too. Life in a secluded Greek fishing village embraces two Canadian travellers, wraps them in its arms and overwhelms them with gifts. Friendship, laughter, cheeses, coffees galore. Those fish.

Such encounters with the unexpected, the sometimes perplexing but always soul-affirming, are the kind of magic that rewards those who travel, not to see all the sights this world has to offer, but to slow down and savour. The kind of magic that, an ocean away, makes these Canadians feel they’ve come home. This book is the second in the Sifnos Chronicles series.
