Thought you may like to see a few photos from our trip to Kos last summer, it was our first trip abroad for 12 years and also our youngest daughters first trip abroad. Thought it may cheer us up abit as we are all looking forward to the spring/summer weather!


Walking to Kos Town


I presume thats a flower on the end of the bananas!


A ruin in the middle of Kos Town


Hypocrates Tree in Kos Town


We had to drive up a very steep hill to get to here in Kefalos we saw a motorbike skid on our way back down it looked very slippery!


View of the salt lake from Zia which apparently has the most amazing sunset, but we didnt see it this time but we are going again this year so may be able to see it then!

Hope you like the photos, it was very hot in August and we had a fabulous time!

What a beautiful place. I wanted to ask if you knew what the flowering trees were on your avenue walk into Kos. They look Ever so much like hawthorn in the picture! but of course they aren't. I just wondered what they are.....I've never been to Greece at all Daylily, it looks really lovely. I would like to see Corfu one day. :)

Hi karen thankyou, I was thinking exactly the same when I put the pic on I don't know what they are either but they do look nice don't they. We have been to greek islands years ago and for our honeymoon, and have been to cyprus when our eldest was younger ps that's her in the pic with the trees. We are going again so I will take a closer look at those trees!! We do like greece! :))

Lovely pictures Daylily. I love Greece. We visited most of the major islands but never Kos. We spent a bit of time on Samos which we loved and it was only a hop to Kusadasi on the Turkish side (to see Ephesus) We have great memories from that trip. We bought 2 carpets in Turkey which was an experience by itself. We have them in our house on Vancouver Island and cherish them.
I wish to visit again but we just live too far now...on the other side of the planet :-)
Thanks for posting your wonderful pictures. I enjoyed the tour.

Hi klahanie thankyou your welcome. We've visted crete, zante and a little island called spetses years ago and also cyprus we've only travelled that side. You can go across to turkey from kos but we didnt , a few people said it can be quite an experience as you said! Yes you are quite a long way off lol would take longer than a few hours! At least you have your memories and souvenirs its always nice to buy something! Lovely to speak to you thanks again :))
