A Walk Around Tragaki, Zakynthos
How much difference a week makes! Last Sunday’s walk around Tragaki, Zakynthos was the busiest one in a while. I’m not really sure why that was as it wasn’t a particularly short walk, maybe after being cooped up due to the weather people were determined to get out in the fresh air. It was nice to see people of all ages, including younger children, enjoying the walk. And as always there were dogs enjoying the walk too.
We met up somewhere in Tragaki… I am one of those people who get lost in the garden, and all I remember is that we met at a t-junction beside some olive trees. It could have been anywhere and had I been driving we probably would have ended up anywhere except in the right place.
It was a bit of a grey day, but much warmer than it had been the previous week.
Tragaki, Zakynthos – Through My Lens
Kefalonia looks like something out of an old film set, don’t you think?
The landscape was a beautiful palette of greens.
The houses in Tragaki, Zakynthos are situated in some beautiful surroundings.
I have no idea what the village on the hill is called, but what views they must have!

Tragaki is definitely a very green part of the island.
Tragaki Has Some Quaint Buildings…
What a happy looking school. It’s enough to brighten the parents day too.
Someone has a sense of fun in this village. I imagine this window was painted by the same person who painted the school.
Even the older looking buildings are kept well maintained and are lived in.
Well, maybe not all of them. Although even the more run down buildings add character to the village.
I have no idea what this ramshackle old building is, but judging by the contraption resting on the wall, I’m guessing it was a place where olives were pressed.
Other Things We Saw During The Walk…
These geese appeared too comfortable to move.
This chicken was a bit of a looker and obviously knew it.
This is the nearest we get to a babbling stream. In a few months time, this will be a dry and dusty crevice.
A fine example of parking in Greece. Whether outside a supermarket, in the middle of town or in a field the parking is pretty much the same.
And Now For An Olive Tree Or Two…
I noticed that some of the olive trees around Tragaki had thick moss growing on their trunks. A sign that Tragaki is possibly even more damp than the rest of the island. I love the vibrancy of the colour of the moss.
These trees weren’t quite so moss covered.
Isn’t this olive tree trunk a beauty? I’d love to know how old it is.
These trees are clinging on for dear life. It makes for a very pretty ‘avenue’.
Olive trees have character, don’t you think?
Well, that was our walk around Tragaki. What was your favourite photo?
