At the beginning of October I took part in the fantastic family event of my friends - wedding of their son, which was held on Amorgos in Aegialis hotel. And it was really one of the most unusual experiences in my life. The road from Poland, where I live, to Amorgos is long (plane and then ferry), but I don't regret that I made it. And there were also guests from USA, France and Argentyna, who also enjoyed this event very much. Unfortunately my English is too poor, to describe everything as I feel it. But I'll try to describe some details. When the ferry came to the Aegiali port about 1 a.m., we (there were also other guests for this wedding) were met by 2 drivers and the manager of the hotel just in the port and taken by buses to the hotel, which was situated about 5-7 minuts by bus from the port. In the hotel we were met by several employers who very quickly gave keys to the rooms for everybody and helped us to find our rooms and with our baggage. I was pleasently surprised by their good organization, because ttere were a great mass of people who came to the hotel at the same time. And I was also surprised by very kind invitation in the hotel with local sweets and drinks at that late time. It was a very good idea, because some people who had slept at the boat didn't want to sleep at that moment, so we spent nice time speaking and making acquaintance, having such good refreshments. I was not afraid to be late to breakfest because we were told, that food would be in the restraunt in any time from the morning till dinner. I was in Aegialis hotel from Tuesday till Monday (wedding was on Saturday) and every day food was organized in such a way, which was very good for those who waked up early in the morning (in this situation 9 a.m. it was early), as well as for those who wanted to sleep more.
I liked my room very much. It was prepaired very well and was cleaned every day - everything was on very high level. Of course I have a wonderful view from my balcony, as each room in this hotel has a view on the sea. All the guests in this hotel at that time came on wedding, so we didn't get irritated because of music or some noise till midnight or even later, it was normal in this situation and it is a specific charaster of Greek style of life.
The staff of the hotel was very kind and attentive to all my needs and questions. I liked the working atmosphere in this hotel: as I noticed everybody, no matter a manager, a driver or a receptionist, did every work they could, if it was necessory. And there were a lot of not everyday works, I think, during prepairing of wedding party for more than 100 guests.
We had the opportunity to visit a room for newly-weds - it was wonderful, with nice bed and jaccuzzi in the bathroom, and it was lovely decorated.
The wedding party was fantastic! It was organized outside, near the pool. Everything was decorated with white and green colors, a lot of flowers, lights, special lanterns with candles inside on each table. In the evening and at night it looked magic. But for me, accustomed to "north" culture and traditions the most fantastic was atmosphere - an energy of this place or maybe air, or of this specific culture of enjoying life, which made everybody feel himself free of any barieers! We had such jolly time! We danced till 6 a.m.! Nobody put attention to some problems with wind or with little place for dancing. There were Greek musicians who were playing without brakes - it seemed that they were nor tired playing and singing the whole night long. And most of the guests didn't feel themselves tired or sleepy. I think, the newly-married couple and their parents were happy to have such fantastic wedding. And I was very happy to take part in it, to "touch" their happyness, but also to see such good organization and to spend fantastic time in Aegialis hotel.
