ADP out of town: Spetses island

I spent the weekend at this beautiful island (about 2 hours from Athens by hydrofoil). Spetses is mostly known for its great contribution (with warriors, money and ships) to the Greek war of Independence in 1821.
Private cars are totally forbidden so people use horse and carriages, motorbikes or these red sea-taxis to get around the island or to the nearby mainland shores. The little port's entrance gets very busy sometimes...

The place where my kids learned to play backgammon, almost ten years ago, and still play it today. Nice island to walk around, nice crafts, and a great place to sit by the port and play backgammon and have a drink.
