Catching Katakolon

Katakolon

This was our second sojourn to Katakolon in just over three years, the first while on our 54-day cruise aboard Holland America’s MS Prinsendam.  It’s a charming little fishing village that in ancient times served a very important role as the port city serving Olympia — the site of the original Olympic Games.

Since we’d been here before we spent only of small fraction of our port time in Katakolon itself this trip.  Instead, we took a bus to visit Olympia.  But, as you can see, you can do a lot of great photography in a very short period of time here in Katakolon.

All around you’ll find great colorful details to photograph.  Spotting a photographic gem is not difficult to do here.

Restaurants line the waterfront of the village, as well.  Many offer free WiFi in addition to cold beer, so kick your feet up after you’ve returned from Olympia.

While you’re sitting there, sipping beer and cruising the internet, keep an eye out for those splashes of color awaiting your camera.
