Where to start? There is so much that is interesting on the island; places to see and things to learn. In the next pages I have tried to give an insight into life as it was latterly and the traditions that are still very much alive and well and which are unlikely to change in the near future.
Alongside that, a brief overview of a couple of the neighbouring islands and places on Kos is probably useful so that you can decide if it is actually worth getting off your sunbed!
One of the beauties of the area as a whole is that there really is something for everyone from the Water park to Roman Ruins; Bar Street to Byzantine villages; quad bikes to donkeys; Greek coffee to Freddo Cappucino; worry beads to IPods - quite an eclectic mix.
I am of course diversifying from Mastihari here but hopefully the following pages will help you to get more from your holiday which is the whole point of it.

To make having a look around even easier, call in and see Kathryn at 'Kos Travel and Event Management' whose office is on the main road next to Vios Pizzeria.
Kathryn specializes in trips of real local interest so you can go to the olive press and vineyard. You can get to Zia to see the sunset and Tingaki for a Turkish bath; catch your own fish for supper and visit a honey factory; have a walk around the beautiful Old Pyli and visit other villages on the island. There are also trips to Nissyros, 3 Islands, Turkey and the excellent Greek evening.
Kathryn also organizes events days so call in and see if she has anything in the pipeline while you are here and enjoy her office, which is a tribute to her own artistic creativity!
Have a browse through and I am sure you will find something to motivate you!
