I always talk about how our trip memories are fading, and this post is definite proof. On our second full day in Naxos, we had a hearty breakfast at the hotel, did some sightseeing, relaxed in the hotel swimming pool, and then set out to watch the sunset from the famous Portara. We remembered doing most of that. But, until we looked through our photos from Naxos, we completely forgot that en route to the Portara we stopped for a snack at this souvlaki and gyro place called Κορρές (listed on Foursquare as σουβλατζίδικο (Κορρές)). 

That isn't because there was anything wrong with the food or because it wasn't good. From what we remember now that we've thought about it, we think it was good. But there were so many amazing and memorable places and meals in Naxos with Taverna Lefteris and Milkato and our hotel breakfast bar and the dinner place we're going to talk about next, that this one kind of got lost in the shuffle in our memories. Sadly that happens when we haven't committed our memories to record.

We do remember that we were hungry so we stopped for a quick snack, and we'd seen plenty of young people eating these on the waterfront. The shop had a grill and various meat spits, and we decided to split a pork gyro pita which only cost €2. Inside the pita, there was pork, lettuce, tomato, onion, fries, and tzatziki. It was tasty. We mimicked the other young people and ate it sitting on the waterfront while people watching, and it was a wonderful break. Naxos is really such a great escape.
