TINOS – THE TALE OF ANEMOESSA

Tinos is an island which is not getting the hype it deserves, because it is unlucky enough to be located next to Mykonos, the celebrity wasteland.

Located in the northern side of the Cyclades, in antiquity it used to be called Ophiussa (from the word “ophis” which means “snake” in Greek) & Hydroessa (from the word “hydor” which means “water” in Greek”). To be honest, it should be named “Anemoessa” (from the word “anemos” which means “wind” in Greece”) because our main activity in this magical island was to chase my friend’s Panama Hat, taken every now and then by the meltemi wind (you will see that hat down the post). I mean, of course there will be water (we ‘re on an island). And there might actually be snakes as well. I didn’t see a single one, to be honest. But they have probably gone extinct because of the freaking wind, which will blow your hats, thought, shirts, dresses (quite nice) and false eyelashes away.

Although Tinos is famous amongst Greeks for its faith tourism, truth is there are a handful of things to see or do in Tinos that are not religious at all. Beautiful villages, amazing beaches and traditional fairs -all authentic, all mesmerizing, all white and blue.

Take a walk with me and experience Tinos through an analog lens.

Eros | Volax, 2018. A sign that reads "eros" ("love" in Greek) in the beautiful village of Volax in Tinos. In the Theogony of Hesiod, Eros was a primeval God, the son of Chaos. Later tradition made him the son of Aphrodite, goddess of Sexual Love and Beauty. From that moment, Eros is cursed to waver between Beauty and Chaos, inflicting both with each arrow he launches.
