We flew in a propeller jet over many islands to Kos, which is one of the furtherest eastern Greek Island
Where we are staying is just beautiful. Sue’s brother is married to Chrissy who has Greek heritage and her family has a block of units, with shops below and two stories of about 4 apartments. Chrissy and Paul own the unit at the top which is very large and looks right out over the marina, the Aegean and Turkey. It certainly is position, position, position. It is walking distance to everything. The day tripping boats all trying to get you to come on their 3 island tours or trips to Bodrum, Turkey. All the many restaurants, trying to entice you to eat in their restaurants by offering free drinks or desserts. We are just all sorry we are not staying here longer, but due to ferry timings we leave for Santorini on Friday night.
George (Chrissy’s uncle) met us with the key and his wife had made the apartment very homely and had cooked a Greek cake to welcome us
For dinner we decided to self cater as we had a full kitchen in the apartment. Shopping is a bit of fun, as everything is in Greek, so you go by pictures at times and hope for the best. It was lovely to wander the streets after dinner and walk through the market places. Everyone is certainly out late enjoying the balmy evenings and the surroundings. We were all exhausted so decided to turn in around 11 am, which is very early here. The surrounding restaurants had live music so with the help of air plugs we drifted off to a dreamy sleep! There is no internet in the apartment, so communication may be spasmodic - depending on when we buy something at a restaurant with free wifi.
