Summer Holiday in Karpathos 30.7. - 8.8.2013
This year´s Greece holiday leads us to Pigadia, the main town of the island of Karpathos. If you draw a line between the east coast of Crete and the isle of Rhodos, Karpathos is in the middle in between.
After the lift-off, we get a good view over most parts of the city of Vienna.
Fast ascent; fluffy clouds over fields.
Lake Balaton in Hungary.
Reaching the Aegean sea - the westernmost "finger" of the Chalchidike peninsula, in the background the mainland south of Thessaloniki. The pointed very high mountain to the right may be the Olymp.
The island of Astipalea, in the distance to the right Santorini. Approach for landing has begun.
Karpathos airport. As we have to land in northwestern direction against the wind, our machine flies a big curve over the sea south of Karpathos.
On the way back, much deeper now. The South coast around Laki, in the background high mountains of the island (over 1.200 m). Pigadiai behind the land tongue to the right.
Shortly before landing.
