Continuing on my Greek Island Hopping adventure with MDFV, I can't lie I spent alot of time onboard just soaking up the sun.
Time just doesn't seem to exist when your bobbing along in the middle of the sea. Sometimes I wouldn't even know what time it was for a whole afternoon, just not even caring.
I tell myself I need to do a digital detox whilst I'm here in London, so this was rather good practice as I can tell you know, you don't get 4G in the middle of the sea.
Barely anything for miles, it's great to finally find those moments to just have with yourself.
But on the flip side, the eager explorer in me wanted to jump right off and go explore new territories.
Luckily we docked in Kos, and so off we set.
Now I don't know about you but when someone say's Kos, I think of wild partying in neon sign clad bars down the strip. I mean there was this T-Shirt going around on social media once saying Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go to Kos.
Really not my scene.
However like most places, there is another side to it. A more beautiful, and fascinating world.
Kos is also home to some very impressive ancient Greek ruins.
The Ancient town is hugely impressive. The Ancient City Wall built sometime in the 4th century but more impressive is that quite a few of the mosaics are preserved still. You can almost create a vision of what it would have been like back then.
When it comes to places like this, I really like to run my hand over the stones, and touch the remains, almost to somehow feel more connected with the place.
However a little further into town, is something even more impressive. An ancient Greek amphitheater.
Well it's actually called an Odeum, but both are very similar structures used for outdoor performances. This one was build in the 2nd century AD, however sadly it was damaged by an earthquake in AD 142 but it was repaired during AD 161- so you know, still pretty old.
We wandered slowly around the ruins and odeum for hours, and yes fooling around trying to recreate some Greek tragedy on the stage.
The sun was up high in the sky, giving us not a care in the world.
Kos really is more than just a party island; it really has that classic Greek charm to it which I think is often lost in the media.
Plus anywhere that sells homemade Greek ice cream in chocolate peanut butter flavour wins my vote any day.
But before long it was time to get back on the boat, to set sail and move onto the next stage of my adventure.
What island would be next?
