A young, smart and very worthy girl with a degree from the faculty of tourism, knocked on many doors in Serbia, but as it usually happens in Serbia, she has not managed to find a job despite all the qualities she possesses as a human being and as a worker.
In the middle of the season, when I lost hope that I could manage hundreds of quests for accommodation, I called her to come and try to help me. She accepted and she was on the island within two days.
She stayed throughout the summer, visited all the villas and hotels that are on the site, every day trying to get to know the island as much as possible and I hope that by next year she will be ready to seriously assist me in business.
Now I’m with her in Limenas. We’ve been here for ten days and we will stay until we get a clearer picture of north side of the island. As you noticed, there was very little information on Limenas and Skala Potamia on the site, and the offer was very modest. Now, the two of us, are planing to correct that.
You should see us as we walk the deserted streets with notebooks in hands, and carefully write down all the houses and every turn, every supermarket, gas station, bakery.
Scale Panagia is especially empty (Golden Beach).Yesterday some of the locals were shouting, thinking that we are tourists: “Girls you are late, the season is over”. At Golden Beach, we could not find any restaurant or kiosk to buy something to eat. We walked 2.5km to order a sandwich at Skala Potamia :-)
It is interesting that the October weather this year is very nice and that there are swimmers on the beaches, mostly islanders. The owner of one hotel told us that for the first time in her life she went to the beach in October.
Limenas only has a little bit of life in itself, but we also “close” restaurants there. We tried a lovely soup with vegetables in a tavern on the coast, and when we decided to repeat it after a few days, we came across a padlock. We dined in the Zorbas tavern and told us it was their last working day. At the gate of Vigli’s restaurant on Golden Beach, it says: “Closed. See you next year. Happy Christmas ” wit a drawing of Christmas tree :-)
Regardless of the fact that everything is empty and closed, there is some beauty in that too. It’s as if somehow life suddenly slows down and resolves to give you some time to think about your life, people, your choices, your way of life. I think this is at the same time the greatest advantage of life in small towns and islands in comparison to the big city. Here a man, even if he does not want, is thinking about the people he loves and who loves him and has time to tell them that and to show them his love, has time for a relaxed walk and socializing with friends without looking at the clock, he can drift away and spend the whole day doing nothing and not thinking about any obligations, because he starts with work in 7 months :-) He has time to figure out whether he is heading in the wrong direction, to slow down and get back on track.
Although there are only small villages on the island, Latin dance, aerobics, folklore, martial arts are very popular in each of them, because people have time and almost all have opted for at least two activities during the winter.
Most of the male population goes fishing several times a week, and on Sunday hunting partridges and rabbits. Winter is also ideal for those who want to learn a language, get driving license, travel, create some “business” for the next year :-)
No matter how hard it was to work during the season, every day without a free day and a break, it is very comforting to have nice vacation and to spend arned money during the winter, although honestly, on Thassos money can not even be wasted because there’s almost nothing to buy :-)

Poslednje vesti : Kako saznajemo iz Narodne lutrije Srbije, izvučena je sedmica u 25. kolu sredinom jula na jugu Srbije. Ovom prilikom stručni žiri poručuje ostalim igračima , ako je do tamo stigla sreća gde i Bog šalje meteore na ljude, IGRAJTE I VI :-) Za sreću nikad nije kasno! Hvala strucnom ziriju (saradniku) na čestitkama:-)

Devojcice,obe ste sjjjaaajne,tacno mogu da zamislim kako vam je bilo na severu i zao mi sto nisam bila sa vama...sa vama bi i na pustom ostrvu bilo zabavno a tek u Limenasu u oktobru ....provod Odlicno ste se nasle,dobitna ste kombinacija,drago mi je sto sam bila svedok ( svedok saradnik) pocetka jedne divne saradnje Ljubim Vas puno,pozdravite Tasos...
Ana ti si divna...Hvala tebi na svemu!!!
Danima me proganja jedan problem...ustvari tkz." problem". Imam potrebu da napisem tekst zahvalnosti jednoj osobi, ali prosto se bojim da iako upotrebim sve prideve u superlativu nece biti dovoljno jaki da preslikaju deciju, vragolastu dusu u telu jedne ozbiljne Ane :-) Pokusacu ovako:<br />Ana, hvala ti od sveg srca...<br />Hvala sto otvaras vrata neosvojenog, nepoznatog...<br />Hvala sto znas da delis...<br />Hvala za moje budjenje :-)<br />Hvala ze energiju ravnoj celom zivotnjskom carstvu...Hvala sto slusas i prihvatas razlicitost...Hvala sto si borac za istinu...<br />Hvala sto pokazujes celom svetu da biti Srbin nije sramota ! Jednostavno NESTVARNO-STVARNA SI ! Mozda je to najbliza formula do koje sam dosla upoznavajuci te. Znaci: ne postoji tone plazme ili brdo knjiga koje bi tebe promenile... Hvala sto si me pustila u tvoj svet plavetnila, cistoce, prijateljstva, ostvarenja...u svet turizma...Moj ranac je uvek spakovan za novu avanturu s tobom...Jedva cekam...:-)
Da, primetio sam da su ostrvljani prilično u fazonu "što da se cimam, dobro mi je i ovako".<br /><br />Moja supruga za koji mesec dobija mađarsko državljanstvo, tako da i ta zakonska prepreka oko raznih dozvola neće biti problem, ali opširnije ću ti pisati u mailu.<br /><br />pozz...
Dragane, napisi mail sa idejama, pa ko zna, mozda nesto uspe :-) ja sam tu da pomognem... Inace, kada bi nasi ljudi preuzeli ostrvo, mislim da bi dozivelo procvat :-) Cula sam toliko zanimljivih ideja koje bi jako lepo funkionisale ovde, samo sto nas jos uvek koci to sto nismo u EU pa se tesko dobija radna dozvola. Ostrvljani nisu mnogo mastoviti kada je posao u pitanju, a ima jako puno prostora za rad.
Kako si ovo lepo opisala. Odmah sam poželeo da se ubacim u taj film, da batalim sve u Srbiji, otvorim sezonski biznis na Tasosu (o čemu i inače razmišljam od letos), i da kuliram u toj zimskoj nirvani, posvetim se sebi, svojoj porodici, da pecam, lovim ili pak ne radim ništa, i da zaboravim šta je to stres usled jurnjave za parama u Srbiji. Ideja za takav posao postoji. Ustvari, dve... Trebaće mi tvoja pomoć za obe. Mislim na logističku pomoć, ali o tome ćemo u direktnoj komunikaciji mailom. Pozdrav!
