In my last blog I told you guys that I would post a new blog about Kos at the end of June. I didn’t make the end of June but the 17th of July. Sorry for the wait!
Today I am going to tell you about my 4 day trip in Greece. I went with my sister. I think travelling alone might be better because you can do what you want, when you want.
We booked our flight, hotel, and transfer at Vakantiediscounter (Vacationdiscounter). It wasn’t expensive. It was € 130,- per person for the hotel, flight and transfer! We stayed at Paritsa Hotel. The hotel had no swimming pool. We were okay with that because the beach was 4 minutes away from us. The location was very good. We already went in Kos in April so we already had an idea in what neigbourhood the hotel was. 4 minutes away from the beach, 10 seconds away from shops, about 8 minutes away from Kos City (walking). Food and lounges were also 4 minutes away from us. The clubs were at Kos City.
The first day
We had the bad luck that our flight was almost 8 hours delayed. Which means the first day we couldn’t do much when we arrived. So the first night when we arrived we just walked a bit in Kos.
The Second day
The second day we did much more luckily. I started with a drink at Jacksons. After that I went shopping. I saw a really nice blue dress hanging at a store on the mannequin so i tried it and it looked really nice. The woman who worked there said that it was handmaded and the last one, so ofcourse I bought it 🙂 When I walked in the street I also saw some nice hats. So I tried many but I have a big head. In the end I found one! After that we went eating at our favourite place in Kos, Agkyra Fish Restaurant. I really recommend this place to you guys! The food is delicious, you have a view at the sea and the people there are really genuine!
In the afternoon we went back to Jacksons. Jacksons is a really cozy beach bar. We had many drinks there, went in the sea and enjoyed the music and the sun. The staff there were all nice.
We also went to Kos City to buy some stuff for us but also gifts for our family. Kos has many jewelry stores that are really nice. So we bought some jewelry for the family and for us.
In the evening we went to Kos City for a night out so we were all dressed up. We couldn’t even choose where we would have a drink because all the staff of clubs will run to you so that you come to their club. You will think that they cannot persuade you. Guess again, they absolutely can. The first girl who came and talk to us was like: ‘This is the best place with good music and the second cocktail was for free’. An other dude also came but did not persuade us. So we had our 2 Blue cocktails from the first girl.
After the cocktails the real party started. We went to another club in the same street. The music there was so good that I couldn’t stop dancing 🙂
The third day
The third day we went on a boattrip almost the whole day. We did the 3 Island boattrip from Odyssey. This boattrip was so much fun I really enjoyed it. Not too many people on the boat which is good. I really need my space. It wasn’t expensive at all. For what you get, the 3 Islands, the food and the dolphins is isn’t expensive. We stopped at all 3 islands and than you have some free time to see the Island or to go swimming. The staff of the boat were all so nice and fun. On the boat there was music, so at the end the staff started dancing. If you are going to Kos I will really recommend this boattrip. You definitely will not regret it.
When we came back from the boattrip it was late in the afternoon. We first did some shopping. After that we went eating. I really love italian food like pasta. But this time we didn’t go to our favourite restaurant. We went to one in Kos City against a shop with the name Amsterdam in it. It looked very good. As always I ordered my fish spaghetti. My sister ordered gyros. I did not make a picture of my food. I found the spaghetti not so good. It wasn’t grose or something but just not as good as our restaurant where we always go to. The difference between those two is that my standard restaurant is specialized in fish and this restaurant wasn’t. The only thing what really scared me there was the mussels in my spaghetti. Not because they didn’t look good but there were pieces from the shell from the mussel in my FOOD. So I swallowed a big piece through my throat and it really hurted. I couldn’t speak without pain. The morning after it was away but you all can understand that I was shocked. I will eat there again but no more fish there… You might think that you could see the pieces in the spaghetti but you couldn’t because of the sauce of the spaghetti.
In the evening we went to a fish spa in Kos City. It really tickled but after the fish spa my feet were really smooth:)
The last day
The last day we didn’t have much time because our transfer came early in the afternoon. The only thing that we did was buying some more gifts, eating at Agkyra Restaurant and we had a drink at Jacksons. We wanted to go to Zia but there was no more time left.
How did I experienced it?
I really love Kos. It isn’t a big city but it is good if you need some rest for a couple of days. I would not recommend to stay for like 2 weeks, because after one week you have seen it all. The only thing that really bothered me compared to when we went in april is that there suddenly were so much tramps. In April we saw none and in June everyone is a tramp. Ofcourse I did not believe it. They only do it because there are many tourists there right now and that is easy money to make. I also did not like that there were a lot of dutch people there. I am dutch but if I go on vacation I don’t want to see so much dutch people. It feels like you are on vacation in your own land. Ofcourse I understand it because Greece is a really popular destination and cheap.
Tips & Tops
I would like to have feedback from you guys. What did you like? And what can I do better? If you see English which is not correct just tell me. My first language is Dutch and I am doing my blog in English because I want to improve it.
