- SQM 116
What do you get when two inspiring and caring teachers - moonlighting as translators and tutors - build their love nest on the edges of Kea? A library.
Reader's Pool ought to be the daily point of departure of any book loving traveler visiting the western-most Cycladic island of Kea. Books abound, in the attic, in the living area, and in the meticulously crafted extension of the master bedroom. There a small library shades a custom made desk and chair lighted by the afternoon beams of the Aegean sun. The handmade furniture - made of oak and cedar - dominate the ambiance of the house. The visitor gets a sense of the eternal, of a historic continuity, a throwback to the island's Byzantine and Venetian times, when local skilled craftsmen were valued and appreciated and the Oak Forest was the source of their scanty livelihood.
And if such thoughts are a far cry from your usual vacation mode or simply too heavy for a lazy afternoon under the Kean sun, just jump into the pool and let the water wash away all your worries, needs, and wants. Let the smells of thyme, lavender, and oregano heal the wounds of the winter and prepare you for life's second act.
