……….. Sour cherry pick Ikaria forever …………….
After Eleni loaded a set of new photos on Flickr last.month, mutual friends said that I should show some stuff too. Well, here is the stuff, sixty-two, both old and.new, known and unknown, pictures from our life and times in Ikaria in the four seasons of the year. Most of them have always been on Flickr,.only that they were set ‘private’. If you open the pictures in the source, you will be able to read.the titles, some explanations and links back to this blog 😉

On the other hand, if you are in a hurry you can just watch the slideshow which will load very soon.after you click on the picture below. With more that 100 photos by now, it’s like a short film! I hope that you will enjoy at least that one. 🙂

I was suspected to have been involved in that show. Who can say if I was… You can’t certainly find that out from me. What I can tell you is that we had another «c’est fou!» in Ikaria or should I rather say «it’s crazy!» because the star in this new case is a Canadian athlete and instructor, Greg Carver from Toronto.

Greg has a blog called Athletics by Nature

I am copying from the entry relevent to his doings in Ikaria
posted in Sept 2009:

http://gregcarver.com/blog/2009/vacation-workouts-inspired-by-natural-movement/

«…This year, I took a much more rational and satisfying approach. Taking some of the elements that I learned from natural movement guru Erwan Le Corre, I decided to try and train in nature as much as possible, and I also made a conscious decision to back off a bit in intensity when I felt like I’d “had enough”. That was certainly the case on my most recent vacation, which was spent on the island of Ikaria in Greece. While there, I scouted the landscape for training opportunities, and managed to find a number of great locations in which to incorporate running, lifting, throwing, swimming, jumping, balancing and other movements.  I used only natural movements that people have been doing for hundreds of thousands of years. No gym or equipment was needed.»

I liked his approach. Everything else is in the photos. Enjoy. Perhaps not as graceful and calculated as the French, nevertheless definitely simpler stuff that anybody (well, almost anybody) can do. Grab the ideas. Isn’t it what little boys (and some girls too) do anyway?
