Greek Islands YEEHAW!!
Trip Start Jul 26, 2005
74Trip End Nov 01, 2005
Next day we decided to hire a mo-ped and gunned it around the entire island!!! Was only 10 euro for 24 hours! BARGAIN!! Though was pretty sketchy trying to reverse all the road rules so i can drive on the opposite side of the road to what i'm used to - especially on an unprotected mo-ped in the greek islands (not exactly the best place to pick it up as drivers are crazy here - and no hospital on the island, so if any accidents occur they'll have to air lift you outta there) haha! The bike got us to beaches and places we wouldnt normally be able to see. Went to 'Golden Beach' which was pretty cool with the white sand in a crescent shaped beach - ahh paradise! Water being so clear and perfect. After a while relaxing at the beach we decided to go again back to the middle of the island, and explore some of the smaller villages around there. So we went and found an interesting looking village, parked my mo-ped and investigated further on foot. This particular one, had far more interesting little things to look at. And again so easy to get lost at, all white square cement buildings with alleys everywhere. There's like just clusters of bulidings all over the island, some very fascinating to explore. Haha - oh and the back of the motorbike slipping out on a drain pipe was not the best, and left both our leg's kinda battered - but managed to keep the bike up right :oP
Paro's was pretty chill though, not many people on the island, and once out on the mo-ped being able to explore half a dozen beaches was perfect - i just wish i wasn't so sunburnt from Athens so i could of stripped down more haha. Nice island to go to put your feet up though. However its our third day now, and its time to head to Ios to party (2nd out of the 3 islands that ill be seeing). Will update whenever i get the chance next. So far so good aye!
