In 1960, Leonard Cohen came to the small island of Hydra and remained there for the next couple of years. He wrote his most beautiful songs there, and the first performance was in the garden of the former cafe O Katsikas (today Rolo café). Generations of young poets and artists from all over the world come to the place where Leonard created, and read their poetry in front of his house (as if introducing themselves to him), talk to the locals, etc. And fantasize.
There are no cars on Hydra Island. If you rented a house at the top of the hill, you would take the suitcases yourself.
They offered donkeys to tourists as a means of transportation, but we did not want that.
You ride horses on the island, and there is a parking lot in front of the post office for these wonderful creatures.
Hydra Island can also be your little magical escape from crowded resorts, hotels, and cars.
So bring a notebook, paper, and pencil to help you write down your feelings while listening to Leonard Cohen, for example, maybe one of the last songs, “What happens with the heart”.
