Day 81 Mykonos to Ios

we were up very early this morning... to get organised to go on the ferry to Ios. Hard case, you go to the port, every man and his dog there, not sure if all trying to get on the same boat...eventually our fast cat came into port, quite delayed. The wind and rough seas were horrendous! They took off from port and we rock and rolled really bad, they had to slow it down. Arrived safely into the island of Ios. Were met and taken to our hotel on the cliffs above the main long beach. Stunning views over the clear blue seas and across to santorini. The pool was superb so we hung out there for the afternoon and drank cheap heinekens and ate greek salads.

We could see heaps of mad Swedes and young backpackers walking along to the main beach front to the pool bars for a wild beach party, it was mid summer swedish festival and all other nations joined in to help them celebrate. We walked down to the beach to view the hilarity, the kids were amused by the drunks falling over on the beach. We said that would be them in 12 years time coming back here.....

we found a more saner bar to sit and drink pina coladas...then headed into a traditional greek taverna to taste moussake, stuffed tomoatoes and other local specialties.... home for us to write up our diaries....
