Kos, Greece – Sage Joan Travels

on

On the 4th June I set off on this years summer sun holiday to the beautiful island of Kos. We begun the week by exploring some of the ancient ruins & went on a search for Hippocrates tree. The ruins offered some stunning views over the town and were the perfect way to start the week. Hippocrates tree was being supported by all the scaffolding so I couldn’t get a picture of this historic site unfortunately.

I adore Greek food and it’s part of the reason we always look to explore a new Greek island so often. Everywhere we ate during the week did not disappoint however these two really stuck out. Alberto’s looks a little like a kebab house from the front but don’t be put off because once you go inside you’re confronted with beautiful white tables on white pebbles overlooking the sea. It’s also the place we visited more times than I probably should admit too for the most amazing pitta gyros. Along with a pint of local Mythos I couldn’t have asked for more.

The second place was Barbouni – a beautiful sea food restaurant that welcome you with a list of fish they’ve caught that day. The seafood spaghetti is one of the best I’ve ever eaten and highly recommend a trip down. Alongside beautiful white wine watching the sunset as we ate it was pretty special indeed.

I had to include a few snaps of some of the beautiful flowers we found all over the island. The entire place was so green and lush I couldn’t not include some of my favourite roses & the vine canopy in the restaurant we ate in, in Zia.

Our week was full of sunsets – from boats to just watching the sun fall from beautiful restaurants.

Finally I couldn’t write a post about my week in Kos without mentioning the furry friend we made. Meet Mufassa the Chow Chow. Isn’t he just the best.
