Aegina island is known to be one of Greece's busiest and when it is having the annual Pistachio (Fistiki) Festival, well it goes crazy. The harbour is not large but everyone wants in and getting a spot is very hard won. We waited our turn and saw numerous yachts tangled anchors, but eventually took our spot. This was lucky because we had new crew arriving..with bikes, so no anchoring off.

When the new crew turn up after nearly 40 hours of travelling they are really pleased to see the stage set up next to the boat for an all night party... Oops!
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
