Where I stayed
On My Scooter

Flag of Greece  , Saronic Gulf Islands,
Friday, July 24, 2009

I thought since I was in Greece and they are known for there many islands, I thought it was past-due for a little island hopping and some beach.  So I booked a my 1-hour ferry a few days prior. 

I ended up missing my morning ferry because I was trying to mail my new souvenir vase back home in one piece.  The first post office I went to wouldn't take any boxes.  So I had to walk quite a ways away and payed an outrageously high price for shipping.  So I missed my first ferry and had to cough up even more money. 

I made it to the island late morning and met some Americans who were leaving the island and I asked if they had a map to give me any tips on what to see.  They had a map and they also said to rent a scooter to just cruise around the island on.  I rented a scooter and guess what?  That scooter was the COOLEST THING EVER!!! I had some much fun on that thing.  It was so dam fast too and was really easy to drive.  Those things have more get up and go power than most cars it's freaking crazy.  So I pretty much just cruised around the island snapping pics and getting really lost.  The island was a pretty decent size.  Maybe 6 miles across I would say.  I also went to the beach for a few hours and tried not to get burnt for the millionith time so I rented an umbrella for a decent price.  I came back in the pm that was that. 

All in all a pretty good day but I think I want to explore some more islands of Greece for a bit longer.  Maybe next time....

And I really love that scooter!

Yeah, sweet Scooter!
OMG, I laughed so hard at the scooter video! It was just great, what a fun way to get around I bet. The island looks beautiful.
