Day 128:  If Ios is known for one thing it is definitely drinking and partying, there is about 100 bars in an area of 100sq m. Crazy.  So when we arrived we had a bit of a sleep to recharge then headed down to the pool for a bit of relaxing and a few daiquiris which were nice, then we got ready for all you can eat pizza dinner at the place we are staying at (9 pizzas between the 5 of us) and then out to the town for a pub crawl.

This pub crawl was pretty crazy, we went to about 5 different places and each one had a promotion saying that you get a free singlet if you drink 7 shots in a row, I don't think they were as strong as normal but still pretty strong (one girl got 5 singlets which is 35 shots on top of the drinks she had). Me and Emma only did it once.

I think the best bar we went to was one that sold only shots but these were flavoured shots which included Malteasers, Aeros, Snickers, Strawberry cheesecake, Turkish Delight and heaps of others, they were amazing and if we knew how to do it would definitely do it back home.  The last bar had a closing down party so all of the alcohol had to go, so pretty much what ever you ordered, no matter how many, it would cost 5 euro. So we were getting 4 cocktails at once and was costing 5 euro.  One guy (Geromie) took it too far and we found him passed out in the street so we picked him up and dragged him back to what we thought was his hostel but it wasn't, but he was out of the streets now so we left him in the corridor and went back to our hostel.  He did thank us the next day though for taking him off the street.

Day 129:  Woke up and surprisingly felt really good, I think from now on that I will drink cocktails and do shots only cause I feel good the next day where as with beer it takes a while to get up.  Today we lounged by the pool again, we also had a go at tubing, we chose the Mach II which if you can hold on the whole time you get your money back.  Emma fell off pretty much straight away (5 times all up) the other two we were with fell of a few times each, I managed to stay on until the last one where he was trying really hard to get me off and eventually did, not happy.  One guy stayed on in the group before us and one guy on the group after us.

That night a group of us went out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant and then we headed out to the bars again to meet the rest of the group, not without a stop first at the flavoured shot bar again where we all did the 7 shots to get a free singlet, really easy here.  A couple of bars that we went to tonight were the circus bar were we had some 'Happy Gas' that you inhale the gas from a balloon and it makes a tingling sensation from your limbs into your centre and your hearing feels a little strange too.  We also went to a bar called Slammers were (it sounds stupid.....and it kind of is) you pay to get your drink of tequila, you then put a helmet on and then he hits you in the head with the drink to shake it up, you then drink it and then the guy either gets a stool/mallet/crate/skateboard/etc and hits you in the head. Some call it crazy, well I think most people would.  I did get 3 of them though. :)
