Hydra Meetup 2019?

Postby Cairn1902 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 2:31 am

As a husband of a Leonard Cohen fanatic, I wondered if there are “plans” for a Hydra Meetup in 2019? Could I also ask if any other Scottish fans have travelled to Hydra independently? Very grateful for any information/advice you could offer on the “best” way to approach such an adventure for two “mature” Scottish travellers?

Many thanks in advance.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Our 2019 meetup will be on the 2nd weekend of June, as usual.

We don't have any program details yet - and the schedule will be up to the number of participants.
In 2017 we had more than 200, almost twice as much as previously.

We will have some program from Friday June 7 to Sunday evening June 9, but there might be something already on June 6. However, this gathering is more holiday than an Event with full program. Many participants stay a bit longer, like a week, and just take it easy. The weather is perfect at that time, and the tourist season has not yet begun.

We will post more details & open registration this Fall at www.leonardcohenfiles.com/backtohydra.html
You will also find some travel hints on that page. Take a flight to Athens, then a direct bus to Piraeus and then boat to Hydra. Looking forward to seeing you!

.... or spend a night or two in Athens then take the metro to Piraeus. This pair of 60-somethings made the trip to Hydra from the UK for the first time in over 20 years in 2017 and we were pleasantly surprised just how easy it was. Feel free to message me nearer the time if I can help.

I would love to (doubt I can, because of classes, and I'm broke too)

I went there once, in a cruise from Athens to a couple of Greek islands, including Hydra. It is a lovely place, small, but charming, and I didn't have time to go to the place Leonard stayed!
