Favorite thing: I guess our main memory of Paros, would be sitting in Pebbles bar in Parikia, on the open patio, enjoying wonderful omelets, drinking freshly brewed 'Filter' coffee, and watching the open sea.

This bar is not particularly fancy, the food is good, but not overly so, the prices are reasonable, however we found that throughout Parikia, so what was the draw to Pebbles...?

Probably the view, and the smiling face of the owner Dimitri. Sitting there, only a scant few meters from the sea, enjoying life as we never felt we could, watching the ferries and small craft arrive and depart, and playing our game of 'Whats their nationality' as tourists wandered past our vantage point.

Fondest memory: Paros in general allowed us to slow down, in fact, 'forced us' to slow down, and therefore appreciate where we were, and what we could see and feel.

Too often holidays become a whirlwind affair, sending you home more stressed and tired than when you first started. Paros, in particular Parikia, gave us the opportunity to unwind, catch our breath, and renew our energy.
