In september 2022 samen het mooie eiland Karpathos voor de eerste keer bezocht. Voor onze vakantie hebben wij de Karpathos guide aangeschaft om zo het eiland alvast te verkennen en ons in te lezen. Tijdens onze vakantie hebben we veel gebruik gemaakt van alle super handige tips uit de guide en hebben we veel prachtige plekjes ontdekt! Zonder de Karpathos guide hadden we deze pareltjes nooit ontdekt. Echt een fantastische vakantie gehad en zijn ook wij verliefd geworden op het eiland Karpathos! Dank jullie wel Athina en Vincent voor de prachtige guide en al jullie tips en info! Veel liefs!
