Martha is originally from Madrid. She moved to Paros a few years ago where she now runs her internet shop. The place is inmaculate, and very modern. If you have run out of space in your digital camera, she can also arrange for them to be downloaded and burn into a CD in her Windows XP computer.
She prepares a delicious Frappe and if you are sick, no worries she will fix U with a tea.

Cycling around Paros island, June 22, 2003
"A nice surprise - meeting Aussie and Kiwi"
Paros trip is full of surprise and joy with scooter cycling around island for 5 hours (about 70km). It is a bit dramatic and huge fun!
After check-in at the private hostel in Naxos island, we went to Paros for a day visit. Given pretty short time, we only planned to visit some small towns and St.Maria beach. While waiting for the bus back to the Naussa town, we met 4 Aussie & Kiwi travellers, who would like to offer us a hitch-hiking. They are very friendly, fun and adventurous as well...very nice people: Dianna, Steward, James and Liam (Kiwi). Thus, we had a very nice trip on cycling the Paros island, seeing a lot of landscapes way beyond our expectations...we did enjoy a lot, together with beer time at small villages and swimming & wandering around the beaches...Liam riding his motor-bike posing doo-kee turnings...James playing his drum (bought in Turkey) and drinking Ouzo at room of Hotel Appollo...picking apricot in the garden...lying on the beach watching another day of sunset...what a great time, Thanks guys!
