The Genesis Imaginary Quote: one of the most surprising quotes about Thassos

49. The book of Genesis describes how God completed His creation in six days. After this, he took a day to rest. He sat in his armchair, enjoying his day ions, but soon his eyes fell on a pile of stones. ‘Oh, I still need to process those’, God. He spun the planet around across his vision and a thought came to him. He came up with a game. The east part of the Mediterranean Sea didn’t have much room to spare, what if he tried to fling all of those stones in this region while trying not to hit the neighboring countries? All stones ended up in a good place, and they comprise the Greek islands. The northernmost island that God created is the island of Thassos.

The Retsina Thassos Quote

50. When we first came to live in Greece, many customs were unknown to us. One of them was “Pame gia retsina”. An appointment between friends to go out drinking retsina one evening. We Dutch expected to go to a pub, so before leaving home at nine o’ clock, we made sure that we had eaten some dinner. When we got out of the car, it turned out that we were going to a restaurant, rather than a pub. In this case, “Pame gia retsina” means: “Let’s go out for dinner.”

The Oregano Quote

51. In late July, we hiked through the mountains of Limenas. As we ascended, we met a woman coming down the other way, carrying enormous lay-up bunches of oregano. We asked her what she needed so much oregano for. She told us that she gathers 75 kilos of oregano per year, to dry and sell to hotels and restaurants. She picks the herbs, removes the bad leaves, and hangs them up to dry in the shade under the pine trees.

After some ten days, the herb is dry. Then she keeps it in the sun for one more day, which is necessary to be able to properly take the flowers and leaves off the stems. The oregano is rubbed through a sieve to make sure that no large pieces make it through. The process involves many days of work.

Later on, we came by the place where she dries everything. The air was fragrant with oregano!

In Greece, dried oregano is very often used, to sprinkle over grilled meat. If added during the cooking process, it may give a bitter taste, so it is sprinkled over feta cheese, salads and meat just before serving.

road, so there must be many houses nearby!”

Thassos Wine Quote

54. You should see it, old wine presses, where grapes were pressed under people’s feet. I should tidy up around one of them a bit, there are shrubs growing all around it.

In autumn, the bees make pure pine honey on Thassos, as there are hardly any flowers that bloom at that time, (only heath, cyclamen, strawberry trees, and ivy).

In ancient times. Thassos was well known to be a wine producing island. Remains of vineyards can be found all over the island, wherever they aren’t suppressed by the construction of houses and roads, and the cultivation of other crops, like olives.

Ancient times saw the trade of wine. Thassos’ wine was known even among the Egyptians. Thassos has the oldest wine-law on earth, it stems from the fourth century before Christ, and goes as follows: “It is forbidden for the island’s inhabitants to drink another wine than that wine which is produced on the island”. The penalty for drinking a wine from elsewhere could be as much as a year’s salary!

In the west and south there is the easternmost extension of the peninsula of Chalkidiki, with the impressive holy mountain Athos at its tip, like a beacon. On the east side you can see the shore beyond Keramoti in the direction of Alexandroupolis and Turkey, as well as the volcanic island of Samothraki and, if the weather is on your side, even the currently Turkish Imbros.

Lastly, from the south you can discern the island Limnos, as a thin line on the horizon.

About Thasos Holidays

Logo of Thassos Holidays with the map of Thassos and an olive oil in it.png
I am Dimi and this is a travel blog about Thassos Greece, my homeland. Although I grew up on this island for almost two decades, I decided to move and study abroad for six years. After Thassos, I lived in five different countries. During that time, I traveled to four continents and saw more places than I could count.

However, it was during the pandemic and my return to Thassos that I realized how lucky I am to call this island my home. And this blog is an effort to show you the beauty of Thassos. I hope you enjoy it :))
