It has been already three times that I had the chance to visit the exotic and beautiful island of Chios. In this last opportunity, I was invited by the Georgalos family to celebrate Easter with them. Experience I will never forget.
Last Monday (April 5th), my friend Alexandros and myself wanted to explore the mountains of Chios and decided to go for a walk through the Vroulidia area. Objective of the trekking … enjoy the nature, the sun and the wonderful view.
More than an hour had passed from the start, during a not difficult path, I jumped and bended my left ankle. This enabled me to continue walking, so my friend called the Firefighters for help. A real SOS experience, as there were no access roads nearby. I have to recognize that assistance was fast, precise and professionally executed.
The reason for this short letter is to THANK ALL people involved during my rescue. Firefighters corps from both Armolia and Pyrgi; the medical centers of Pyrgi and Xora; and staff at the Airport (as I flew out the following day). And of course a special thanks to the Georgalos family and the people from Nenita.
Hopefully I will be back one day and finish the trekking in Vroulidia.

Σε συνέχεια με το παραπάνω, θέλω να ευχαριστήσω θερμά το πυροσβεστικό σώμα, που με μεγάλη επαγγελματική ευθύνη, οργάνωσαν το σχέδιο διάσωσης.
