We recently spent a week on the Greek island of Kos. This was the view from our balcony and it sums up the vibe of the island quite well. This was not a gastronomic tour, not even close. It was a bit of the unknown for me, as someone who had never been on a beach holiday, and even though the trip would have been a million times better hopping from one fabulous restaurant to the next, the rustic cuisine of the tavernas offered us a different, more relaxed dining experience which can sometimes be hard to find. Our one standout meal will come in a later post, but in the meantime enjoy these pictures.
