Here are the last pictures I will show of the island and then I’ll be back with Athens pictures (don’t worry there aren’t too many 😉 And most of these photos are cell phone shots taken throughout the trip. If you make it all the way to the end, if your interested I have written a few things about our trip!
The driving honestly isn’t that bad, I like how the slower drivers drive on the shoulder to let other cars pass. The taxi drivers though, speed… They park anywhere and I miss that! More stray cats then dogs. Most of all the Greeks speak English and we found on the island they were friendlier to us Americans.
Our quad got a popped tire on one of the trails to the beach but luckily we made it to the gas station before it became flat, so glad we didn’t have to walk in the heat. After exchanging it we went off-roading and found some cool places. Monasteries were everywhere on the island. Skiathos island had 60 beaches.
We went without knowing any Greek; but we did learn how to say Hello, Thank you, Your welcome, Food, Water, Beach, Toilet. I got mistaken for being Greek a lot.
Would love to go back to the island, but Athens once was enough. Athens was dirty, smelly, overcrowded, hot and less friendly; loved being able to see the historic sites.
