Xiamen, China: Checking Out "Xidi Coffee Street"


China is a country about tea. It is where tea comes from originally. I have recently read that after water, tea is the most widely drunk beverage in the whole world. Not surprising at all when China has more than a billion people. Well, I drink tea myself and billions of other people in Europe and Asia.

Ever since the trade went global, as well as the still on-going economic revolution of China, many young local Chinese have hunkered for something new and hip to waste their time and money on. This something new and hip has deep roots in the western world civilisation: Coffee.

Skiathos North Scooter Adventure Ride and Xanemos Airport Beach

The island of Skiathos is small and is just perfect to navigate around with a scooter (or a motorbike).


You get rewarded with views like this when you explore the island.

Because we both do not have a motor license, we were only able to rent a scooter up to 50cc.

Skiathos, however, is a quite hilly island so we had some troubles scaling up the steep parts. A 50cc scooter cannot handle a steep incline with a second person on the back. Helaas, I had to get off and walk for the few meters. We cannot let the scooter choke to death. Even if I diet, I will still need to get off, haha.

Last Dinner (at Taverna Hellinikon) and Evening Night Out in Skiathos

This is our last dinner in Skiathos Old Town.


Skiathos Old Town and the island itself is lovely and very much a highly recommended holiday destination for us. We have enjoyed our stay here. The car-free Old Town is very pretty and traditional, filled with inviting boutique style stores and open taverna seating on cobblestone streets. Skiathos holds up to the standard of a charming Greek town on a Greek island.

Our last dinner on the island was spent at Taverna Hellinikon
