Obama enjoys the blue-green waters of Antiparos and fine seafood in Naoussa

Obama Paros

Accompanied by at least 30 American agents and under extreme secrecy, former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle crossed with the liner from Paros to Antiparos at 3:00 on Friday afternoon.

The Obamas arrived in Paros by private flight and were accommodated in the villa of Tom Hanks, with whom they were travelling, according to reports. The guests of the Hanks couple will stay in Antiparos until Tuesday, June 20, as two days later, Obama is scheduled to attend the SNF Nostos Conference.

There, he will discuss ways to strengthen democracy and the importance of supporting the next generation of leaders together with the President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Andreas Dracopoulos.

This is the second time that Barack Obama has visited the Cultural Center of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNFCC). In 2016, during the visit as part of his administration, he delivered a moving speech from the stage of the Stavros Niarchos Hall.

Will the Obamas attend the wedding of the “billionaires”?

There were also reports that wanted the former American president and his wife to “attend” the wedding of a billionaire in Kastellorizo, on Saturday, June 17.

The billionaire Andreas Liveris is marrying his son, Antonis to Amelia McKinnon, with famous business names from America, Australia, and Greece as guests, as well as well-known politicians, with whom he is connected by friendly ties. It has been rumoured that Barack and Michelle Obama are also invited to the wedding.

The Obamas are close friends with the Hanks

It won’t be the first time the Hanks and Obamas have vacationed together as they share a close friendship.

Four years ago, on Stephen Colbert’s show, the Oscar-winning actor joked about vacationing in French Polynesia with Michelle and Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen, and Oprah.

“Both Oprah and I got nervous and wondered? Is that where social media has led the world? That is, we can’t go on vacation on a billionaire’s yacht in Tahiti with a former president of the United States without anyone knowing?”.
