Lesvos

The beautiful, big and luscious island of Lesvos (or Lesbos, or Mytilene) is something a traveler must dedicate a good number of days to experience. At least 7 to 10 days are needed, and maybe you will find out that you will need to come back again, year after year. Through North and South, East and West corners of the island of Lesvos, the traveler (or tourist) will experience a myriad of tastes, outdoor/adventure activities and… lots of ouzo.
