Soooo I left Ios, Simone and I had a wonderful last night there drinking wine and laying in hammocks by the water, but we were ready to get out. We ferried over to Naxos and on our bus ride into the center of the island we got chatting to a couple who happened to be from Canada, and we quickly discovered that I know his brother who goes to Dal (jon berger)...strange coincidences just keep on happening! We all 4 ventured into this tiny town in the middle of the hilly countryside, called Filoti and proceeded to look for accomodation. This involved asking every greek man in the 3 taverns that make up the main square, and basically the entire town. There was no hostel, nor hotel that we could see, and nobody spoke english...we eventually ended up finding some rooms below a hotel run by a sweet greek family. It was fantastic! That afternoon we ventured back into town and rented some ATVs for the next couple days
So now I am in Mykonos, though only for a few hours as I await my overnight ferry to Samos then a quick ferry to Turkey. Lots of travelling, but it will all be worth it in the end!
I have loved Greece, the islands are gorgeous and the people here have been the most hospitable. The beaches, the water, the towns, the food...good times. But everything must come to an end and so I head eastwards for the final leg of the trip!
