That’s the basic outdoor vocabulary for a young Greek tourist (usually a Studying the map of Ikaria by Anastasia Pafili on Instagram free camper) in Ikaria. Port, River, Village, Festival, Beach. It’s seems enough. I use the same to communicate. Why bother with elaborate details. It won’t help. The only thing it will get me is questions like «Are you from Ikaria and bring everything down to the level of family origins. No. Better leave it like this. Did you go to the «Potami«? I was at the «Paralia«. I had coffee in the «Chorio«. What time is the ferry from the «Limani«? The basic geography. I am no better. It’s long since I presented a map of my world in Ikaria. The one I am giving you here is by a Slovenian, yes a Slovenian from Lubliana who for several months has walked and driven all around Ikaria! Here is the link:

When you open the map, the blue pins open to boxes containing lots of information.

Well done, Jernej!

A similar in concept but very primitive thing was drawn by a storyteller years ago.

Primitive but that’s cool too. Well done Eleni!

This entry would be lacking if I didn’t add this map –the most viewed of all maps of Ikaria because it’s a tablecloth!!!

Yet, no matter how good or not a map may be, I doubt whether they are useful to a clueless summer hiker

But if they do, I am sure they won’t be too many so I would gladly share.

I hated it when I was younger and picked up hitchikers who said, «We are going to the Potami. Where is the Potami dude?»
Great entry. Up to the point of vocabulary and map making.

Efxaristo, Dharma!

AKK : must have felt like you were a department store assistant : «Hey dude, where is the stuff for the beach?»

Exactly as you say! Like a servant!
One of the reasons I got into map making was self-pride. No more «Take us to the Potami dude»!

For the record I say that I made that map out of a «leave me alone» motivation so that my friends and go-bys remembered my instructions and ‘what-to-dos’ and I didn’t have to go with them.
I scanned the map I found in the original «Ancient Icaria» and typed and painted on it what I wanted to show. There were no trail network back then. Only the small «Round of Rahes» and … I had noted down «Trachilas» as a «nudist beach»!!!!!!!!!

What I read in both maps is love for the place.

Saturday March 7, 2009 – 08:18pm (EET)

The place loved them. What they do is loving back.

That’s all we know in fact. Thank you 🙂 You are trained to credits, deficits -that stuff.

Hey, good job to update and save those two «tablecloth maps». Besides their value as photos, we have added many hilarious comments about tablecloth map making! Yes of course, this map is the most viewed and it gives a great subject for conversations at dinner time!

Ikaria in Images (1)

At some time while exchanging comments about this pic I was lucky to discover floating in the web a non-functional SlideShow displaying a series of Images from Ikaria. This Slideshow (with texts in between the Images) was made during the Greek Olympic Summer of 2004. It was so to speak the Ikarian Olympic Summer.  The Slideshow was distributed for free in CDs and was exhibited during a local arts and crafts exhibition in Ikaria. Afterwards it was forgotten. However the makers had taken care to load it on the web, so the images were saved even if in a corrupted file format. Liking them very much, I asked for permission and restored several of them in my blog. As they said,  Everything Started With these Images«. They triggered a slow and wonderful explosion of action and creativity .

Σαν παλιά ταινία μήπως; Να το κάνω ασπρόμαυρο;
Είναι που είναι μπερδεμένη η ιστορία, τα μπέρδεψα κι εγώ στο μπλαμπλα της εισαγωγής.

Θα δω τι θα κάνω. Πάντως είναι ωραία να ψάχνω στα μπαούλα σας.

Τώρα βέβαια την άλλαξα αυτήν την καταχώριση που ήταν «My World» και την έκανα «Ikaria in Images (2)», αλλά τα καλά σχολιάκια τα αφήνω γενικώς να υπάρχουν, δεν είναι άσχετα.

WALK THE DINOSAUR

Boom boom shacka-lacka-lacka boom
boom boom shacka-lacko boom boom
Boom boom shacka-lacka-lacka boom
boom boom shacka-lacka boom boom

It was a night like this
fourty million years ago

I lit a cigarette
picked up a monkey
start to go.
The sun was spitting fire
the sky was blue as ice
….

I walked a dinosaur
I walked a dinosaur!

I can only see the frames of the pictures. Have you posted «forbidden stuff» and got censor scissored?
