Kos: day 2 was slightly different from day 1. We were well-rested, the dark clouds were gone, we could see the mountains from our balcony and the sun was shining! It seemed like it was going to be a good day!
Trying to find the best dive center
I wanted to go diving while in Greece, because I needed a dive before July otherwise I might had to take a refresher course before going diving later this year and let’s face it a dive in the Mediterranean would probably be more cool (and cheaper) than doing it in Denmark 😉 There are two diving companies in Kos. One costing €60 for a boat dive and one costing €50 for a shore dive. Even though a boat dive probably would be nicer I decided to go for the cheaper company in order to save money for my trip to Asia. We decided to walk to their office 1.7 km away to get more information.
We didn’t walked far before we realized that we were not in the typical tourist centre. After a few meters of walking we passed a small field with a few cows, we passed a small house every once in a while, but mostly we just walked passed nature, fields and trees.
It was easy enough to book a dive. All I had to do was to arrive the day before the dive in order for them to get my information and for me to fill out all the forms. The dives were actually a bit more expensive than I was told by the Danish guide. So I decided to hear them again to see if they had a special deal with the diving centre, but the guide had actually told me a wrong price and information….
Sightseeing and local delicates
We walked back to the marina near our hotel and took a look at all the expensive yachts and the smaller boats there. It was a windy activity! 😉 We then decided to explore more parts of the city. Of course we didn’t bring a map, because that is the best way of exploring 😉 Kos city has a lot of small and narrow streets. We just took the ones we felt like and ended up in a huge square of restaurants where we decided to have lunch – tzatziki, pita and milkshakes 😉 We spent some time at the pool at the hotel across from ours. We were happy to relax and enjoy the sun and the water!
We then decided to visit the market hall in town. It was full of life! It is here were all the tourists buy their souvenirs, spices, oil and soap. We just bought some local oil and some spices. We then took a stroll through a central park with ruins before dinner and ended the day with a walk around the harbour. It was not the most eventful day, but we just needed a day of doing almost nothing 🙂
