Molyvos is pure beauty, a gem, a place of peace and relaxation where you will make friends that will last a lifetime. As you stroll through the cobblestone streets, you will hear distance bells of sheep the occasional rooster and smells of freshly baked bread — swallows diving throughout the sky and sounds of the Mediterranean kissing the rocky shore beaches. Since age 7, I have been returning every 7 to 10 years and now at 40, it is remarkable how many memories return.
If you go, make sure to stop by Molly’s bar. Impossible to miss, it is right before you get to the Molyvos harbour, stop in for a drink, and you will meet lasting friend with stories of the village.
I recently took a 10 day trip to Lesvos to the village where my grandparents immigrated from. It was a wonderful and moving experience to meet relatives I never knew existed and found I had more relatives than I could have imagined. There were many hugs, kisses and handshakes. I learned more about my grandparents and had a rough family tree drawn for me. It took me many years to find my roots and discovered they run deep.
In addition the island of Lesvos is truly lovely with something for everyone. I drove all over the island, went to villages, beaches, mountains, historical and archeological sites and saw why so many people find Lesvos to be one of Greece’s best island.
If that’s not good enough I just happen to “run” into Rob and Carol while visiting the pretty village of Lafionas. What a surprise to meet them after so many times “talking” to them on travel forums.
Rob and Carol are great people and are very fortunate to live on Lesvos . . . a dream for many of us.
Lesvos is worth going to and should be considered as something that the “Big Name” islands can’t give you . . . traditional Greece!
