Thank you Stefan S. for taking this photo April 2019.

Photo of me from Antegoni on Skyros, September 2019,
was taken by Anne Julie Kalvøy;


My name is Nana Kobro, I am Norwegian, and has lived here on Skopelos
more or less since May 1983.


his quote you often see here on my site, it is from a super song Alone
by my namesister Nana Mouskouri,
a song for me of Skopelos … what else?
See and listen to it;

Skopelitissa.wordpress.com was born on
the 21st of December 2015.
The name Skopelitissa was given me by Georgios Sarris
from Skiathos, many years ago, and to me
it was obvious that my web site should have that name.
Sayyid thought me how to make my 1st site
http://www.skopelitissa.com in 2003,
birthdate 21/3-2003.

Unfortunately that site is not accessible at the moment,
it was made in FrontPage and that does not exist any more.

I need help to «open» it up again. Happy if you have any serious advice, I have tried a lot: WordPress, Hostgator and …

I still own skopelitissa.com

My X home, The Blue Bottle

I lived 26 years in town, Giftorema, but on the 1st of August 2010
I moved up to Raches, to

I call my home, my kalivi, – because I was dreaming about a kalivi
(hut in the country), but when a good friend offered me
an new apartment in his house, I could not resist.
I am so lucky, I was allowed to choose tiles and colors and …
Even the place of my toilet, – it too has sea-view!!!

I have the most fantastic sea-view!

Some new pics from 2017;

I worked all my life at travel agencies, hotels, restaurants and more,
and moved here in 1983 to be a rep for Gullivers Reiser,
a Norwegian tour company who
does not exist any more.
I worked for Lilleput Reiser from May 2011
until October 2016 with charter groups to Sporades,
had the same boss as in Gulliver.

BUT I still do work for Lilleput,
but only on small trips, no charter.
Apokreas/Carnival  2019 we were on Skyros,
just great, has to be seen,
and we had a fantastic 10 days trip on the 22nd of September.
Next Skyros trips will be on the 23rd of September.
For these trips we meet our guests in Athens or on Skyros
and make all the land arrangements.
The guests arranges their own plane tickets.

and just had to take her home!
She was born ca March in 2005,❣
Cancer took her away from me 18th of Dec 2018,

One week before Pasxa left me, this one just started to follow us out walking, I said «figge, figge» – go away, but she did not give up.

Ella and Ira, good friends!

5th of October 2016 came a new dog;


🐶 Ira alias Hera, a small dog given to me by Nina the vet, 🐕
– somebody left her there and never came back!
She was born ca 2012, and is a happy, friendly but a very frighten dog,
she enjoys life with us!  🦌🦌🦌 Her “new” name is Ira, the deer hunter!
I was going to the mainland, and I took the doggies for a walk behind our home first. Ira was free, she saw a deer (a Dama Dama from a farm here) and took off!
I had to leave to get on the ferry, I was so desperate!
Luckily my friends found her a bit later outside my gate,
and looked after her.


🦌🦌🦌 who would dream of deer-hunting on Skopelos?

    1. Tusen takk, hyggelig høre fra deg og velkommen tilbake til Skopelos!
      Pluttselig 18/12-2015 kom jeg ikke inn på min gamle Skopelitissa, FrontPage fra Microsoft sluttet å virke – jeg visste at programmet var ute på dato, men trodde jeg kunne fortsette!!!
      Skulle så gjerne vært inne og forandret forsiden mm – har fått tilbud om hjelp, men det er dyrt! Derfor fant jeg WordPress.
      God tur til Brasil og fortsatt God Påske! Hils til Frode.
      Vi sees på Skopelos!

  3. Dear Skopelitissa,
    I’m living in Skopelos with my husband and a big greek sheppard since appr. 40 years in Raches. The house with the big wall. We are closed friends of Kosta and Voula Kalafatis.

      2. Skopelos is still here, but I can not get my car out, so we will now try to walk, but I do not think we can get to your house! I will post photos if I make any! All the best from Nana


    1. Are you at Raches now? I saw footprints on the road so somebody walked to town. Now with more snow it will be even more difficult. I still have enough in the house so we will survive.
      All the best from Nana


  4. I am in Germany, but friends are looking every day at the house and the dog.
    Take care in the snow



  5. Hallo, Nana,

    our dog Ari is lost. He jumped over the big wall and our friends try to find him.
    Please, if you have any idea or news call Kostas or Voula.
    Many thanks, Monica

    1. Hi from snowy Skopelos! Sorry to hear about your dog, I have not seen him. I spoke with Voula and will keep her informed. He is a big strong dog so I hope he is ok. Saw very many “free” dogs yesterday, obvisily many people just let their dogs out alone, they did not bother to go out with them!


      1. Yes I was told by Adonis, Nina “vets” husband. The mort important I had to buy yesterday was catfood!
        Did you see my photo of the road up to your house?
