What I did
Some random little villages
We decided to go on a road trip this morning, have a drive through the mountains, just to have a look.
We drove along the coastal road to Kolymbia, then turned off passing the turning for the 7 waterfalls. Lucky we decided to give that one a miss as there were plenty of tourist coaches heading that way.
We headed off to Archipoli - they had a pretty little church there that welcomed people to look around. Very small, lots of steps leading up to it. A church with character :-)
After a brief stop there we followed the mountain road via Eleoussa - although to be honest, the road junctions could have sent you anywhere
We drove a bit further then arrived in a tiny place called Profitis Ilias. Random!!! A barvarian hotel, with very loud rock music blaring out. Very nice view of the mountain valleys from the hotel though.
We headed back via Platania - a village with extremely narrow roads!
The road took us an unexpected route so we joined the main road at Kolymbia again. Back to the hotel for some lunch & a rest.
We decided to head back to Prassonissi to soak up some of the atmosphere (& sun) - my legs received another sand blast lol.
We watched some kite surfers doing some impressive jumps - I was amazed at how high they can jump! Feeling slightly envious at this point now.
We didn't stay to watch the sunset this time. We headed back to the hotel for some dinner. The evening entertainment looked a bit grim, so we booked a taxi & headed into Lindos for an evening out. Found a nice cocktail bar & had a couple of cocktails there. They were strong, don't think I could have managed more than 2 & remain standing upright lol.
Back to the hotel, and looking forward to a chill out day tomorrow at Tsampika beach :-)
