#WhatPowersYou | Naxos, Greece | Trip Journal


Magic Bolt's Head of Operations, Michael, spent a week in Greece this summer and had the whole team jealous of his adventures. We asked him to create a Trip Journal highlighting his favorite day in Naxos, Greece. Enjoy!

8:30am 
I woke up to the drapes blowing from the winds. It's gusty in Greece, especially the islands, in late August. 

8:45am
The hotel staff all around Greece was super friendly and hospitable. I loved the morning breakfast spread in our hotel. Especially the cookies. And mini cakes. Also, it's a thing to have Greek salads at every meal in Greece, so I naturally partake.

10am
We're dressed for a day of exploring and grab a buggy to take the scenic route up to the mountain top village of Apeiranthos.

11:30am
We took our time getting up the mountain and stopped a few times to take in the views. Naxos is really beautiful from the ground, but you don't appreciate all of its grandeur until you see it from above.

12:00pm
Exploration time. The streets of Apeiranthos are quaint and date back thousands of years. We got lost...but that was ok. 

3:15pm
Late lunch at a local Taverna. More Greek salad, more feta, more lamb meatballs, more wine. 

4:30pm
Time to head back down to our hotel. 

6:00pm
Arrived back at the hotel and took a quick nap (all that feta...) before we ventured out for sunset.

7:30pm 
The Portera at sunset was magical. The history in Greece is really amazing. We sat there taking it all in until the sun disappeared off the horizon. 

9:00pm 
We found another local Taverna for dinner after sunset. It was quiet and understated. We were exhausted after. 

10:30pm 
Exhausted, it was time to turn in for the night. I always travel with my PowerDock Pro to keep my phone, watch and airpods easily powered when I'm traveling. The dock fit right on my nightstand in the hotel.
