Following yesterday’s post about our travels in Greece in October 2014,  we are tying to work out a bit of a puzzle in the little village of Agia Kiriaki. Situated near the tip of the Pelion Peninsular it’s part of a scenic detour we made  on the way home from visiting  the small island of  Palio Trikeri earlier.

We’ve already been into the village, the road appears to end with some shops, cafés and houses on the waterfront and a careful look on the way back out of the village has eliminated the possibility that we missed a side road on the way in. Frustratingly we can see a road on the other side of the village, it’s just not clear how on earth we can get there by car.

Whilst we are pondering the situation and wondering if maybe the best option is just to back-track up the hill again, we figure that this lookout point is also a good place to take a short break, get out the water bottles and get a breath of fresh air.  To the right of the  little peninsular we are on is a tiny bay, dotted with roughly a dozen houses plus a few half built ones. There are boats in the water and the calm of the Aegean Sea is beautiful in the afternoon light.

The map we have borrowed from our in-laws is not nearly detailed enough to be of any help either. Agia Kiriaki is on it but represented as a  named grey blob with road leading in one side and then again out the other. There’s no street detail to show if or how the two are connected. Logic says that they must be, so now we decide that the only option is to go back down to the village and try again…
