"Author of the story: Jovan Simunovački"

I've been on Thassos already in 2010, in Limenas. I was wandering by motorcycle with my ex girlfriend...

I liked the island, it is ideal for vacation and relaxation.

Summer 2011 came with a question - what should I do now? I wanted to go again to that beautiful island, but with who? When? How? When I am alone, without girlfriend. Without relationship. Alone. I didn't have much money, in high season, when there is nothing available in agencies, especially for one person. Beside that, from my company they told me that my vacation should end earlier than I thought. And I wanted to go... I felt that I miss all those beautiful beaches, clear sea, pine forests and olive groves. Something dragged me in to go and drink coffee in the peace of Panagia like a man, not hurrying anywhere, to make a little walk around Pahis, Alyki and what I know ...

Just to clarify. It's not that Thasos is magic wand, like that, you go there - and all of your problems disappear. That doesn't exist anywhere... But that was not the goal, however. The goal was to reach for ten days of Mediterranean, despite what it seemed impossible.

And it would be impossible under the mentioned conditions, that I did not somehow, on the internet, found Anna.

Nikana. Sound familiar? It should be. It is extremly good to know that on the world there is Ana Nikolić, Nikana, who lives in Thassos. She works in tourism. Ana wasn't surprised with my story, neather with my wish to find me something right away. She showed what she can do. Work in tourism is knowledge, experience, ability, entusiasm, love to your job - like every other job. Who knows - knows. And that's how I went to Thassos. Unbelievable. And in the room with two girls...

I thought - I already saw Thassos so now I will just enjoy places I already know. Damn! Just at once, Ana appeared and led a group of her "own" tourists to the unknown. You find yourself in a couple of places: some hidden sights, some unknown beach, some pretty good restaurants with great food... You finish the day sometime before dawn with a playful team in the best cafe. Well, I'm not saying that you must always be sober hundred percent ....

There's some magic in it, is not it, Ana? It must be that it has !!! Why else would I go again? Perhaps and little convenience - yet Thasos is the nearest Greek island, and definitely not the most expensive. Perhaps it is for Orthodoxy, robbery under the Turks, those beaches near the quarry (what's it called) where you are trampling on the chamois literally in snow-white colors? Because of honey, olive oil, lamb in Teologos or fish and seafood in the Skala Marion? Or is it because of the girl that swam in toples on the Potos beaches, blonde? All this and many more things, as the old Crnjanski would say. And my ex? I'm forgetting about her already ...
