Ios Greek Island, Greece (5/27-31/2009)

Known as a party island, Ios is actually a very laid back place if you want it to be. 

After staying a week in Santorini, we were off Greek Island hopping to the Greek Island of Ios. The high-speed ferry got us to Ios in a hurry.

Ios' famous discos are concentrated along one road only in Ios' main town (Hora) and start at 11pm. We decided we are more beach than town people so we went over to stay on one of the best beaches in the Greek Islands (Mylopotas) at the very nice Island House Apartments. Instead of party sounds, we listened to donkeys, cows, goat bells, and an active rooster. 

We did play with the young folks for a day at the beach at the Far Out Resort and had fun crawling Ios' discos, bars, and cafes one late night.

We went to town every night for wonderful dinners. The main town of Ios (Hora) is very quaint with winding narrow roads. You can get lost discovering restaurants and cafes that look like they were craved into the cliff – so much fun! 

The old fashioned values of Ios were demonstrated to us when a restaurant waitress offered for us to bring cash the next day to pay for our dinner because they did not take credit cards. 

Renting an ATV, we toured all of Ios one day visiting the beaches of Manganari, Agia Theodoti, and Koumbara on all corners of this beautiful island. We had to stop for goat crossings - how fun!

We loved Ios and plan to come back someday.
