I learned the name “kalderimi” (καλντερίμι
or καλντιρίμι plural kalderimia)
early in my Skopelos life
– and I have walked many of them!
In the old days, before cars and more, these paths was made for
walkers and mostly transports with mules and other 4 legged.
All villages was connected.
Where does the name come from?
Mostly says from former Ottoman countries (Turkey)
but some believe it comes from the Greek καλός δρόμος ‘good road’.
I have a dog, Pasxa, you see her on the top photo, and all winter we walk a lot.
I have been and will be recording our walks so if you like you may “see” our walks here, σιγά-σιγά, siga siga, slowy slowly!
To see more walks go to the WALKS on the left hand side her.
