Nisyros – be smart – don’t rent a scooter


Along the way back to Mandraki we passed a lot of small shrines, sitting on the side of the road. I have heard that they are placed at a site where a fatal traffic accident has taken place. I am aware that riding a scooter or a motorbike is an easy way to get around on the Greek islands, but the roads are so narrow and winding and often you won’t know what is around the next corner. If you go ahead anyway – do be very careful! Many young people get killed that way as many people drive way too fast for their own good.

The shrines are all different, some quite beautiful, some not. They will e.g. contain a photo of the deceased person, his or her favourite things, etc. They really are very sad when you think about it.
