Where I stayed

Flag of Greece  ,
Sunday, July 23, 2006

So I met up with Chris Arbuthnot at the port in Athens, and we jumped on a high-speed ferry to cross a few hours of Mediterranean waters to the island of Ios..For those of you who know anything about the Greek Islands, Ios is probably the least attractive looking natural island with the most attractive looking party people. Sort of a like an affordable Ibiza.

Everyday here on Ios is exactly the same. First, you forget what day of the week it is the minute you step off the ferry. You pretty much beach it all day and party all night. We stay at Francesco's hostel which is an awesome hostel at the top of the village overlooking the sea. Met up with a couple of other Kellogg friends out here (Monty and Chris Enock).

So what do 4 Kellogg people do when they get together? Start a flip-cup tournament of course... It's amazing that none of the Aussies, Brits, or Kiwis (who are the majority of the people on the island) have heard of this game..To give you an idea, they were using drink cocktails instead of beer..Naturally, with 2 years of experience under our belts, we managed to smoke everyone else in every game.. There were even Poet chants going on, which seemed funny to us anyway...

So that's our legacy here..we've left behind an annual flip-cup tournament at Francesco's, have had a bunch of laughs, and are getting ready to head out to Kusadasi in Turkey and then to Istanbul.
