Every year millions of visitors descend upon Greece’s hundreds of picturesque islands — some searching for a getaway, others searching for the party scene and others somewhere in the middle.
While many Greek islands do have airports allowing for quick travel from Athens or Thessaloniki, a large portion of tourists still opt for the “scenic” route — i.e. the Greek ferryboat.
In most cases, riding ferries in Greece is a relatively seamless experience complete with lounge areas, snack bars and beautiful Mediterranean views.
But, as is the case in the video below, the Aegean Sea does not always allow for smooth sailing.
Watching this video may make you seasick — even if you’re sitting down on land.
The clip was recorded by a passenger and Pappas Post reader aboard the Greek ferryboat Adamantios Koraes while arriving on the sland of Kimolos during a storm on March 25, 2013.
The video shows the courage and dedication the crew at the port to assist the captain in docking, so cargo and passengers could successfully disembark and embark. It is amazing all that happens in a few minutes — under the toughest of conditions.
