Adventures in Kos, Greece

How I wish Sam and I were somewhere sunny laying on a beach, reading a good book and slurping on a cocktail. Even though travel restrictions have been lifted somewhat, we won’t be holidaying anywhere for a little while yet. Instead, I’m excited to bring you an extra special travel post that features a video of our best GoPro moments! (I’ll post this at the end)

We booked through Thomas Cook and stayed at Lagas Aegean Village, which offered stunning views from their mountain top rooms. There was a mini cab you could wait for outside reception which would take you up to your room, but we never knew how long we’d have to wait. Trekking up the mountain with all your pool supplies after a hard day’s sunbathing was never fun. If you are disabled or have difficulty with mobility then the hotel will put you in one of the nearest rooms (they are on the same level with the main part of the hotel, eg: reception, restaurant, pool area)

Most hotels have an entertainment team that offer an activity schedule for the guests and Lagas was no exception. Aquasize, darts, waterpolo and golf were just some of the pastimes available and there was a creche for children. We actually lived for the Albanian guy who would always yell ‘AQUAGYM’ at the side of the pool every morning. 

We spent most of our time either around the pool, on the beach which was literally across the road, or at our favourite Skala Cafe & Cocktails bar. As you’ll see in my vlog below, we also hired a dune buggy from a place the hotel recommended. I think it cost about 120€ for three days and it was a great way to see more of Kos!

The hotel’s dinner buffet became quite samey after a while so we went out to eat more in the second week of our stay. We found a beautiful restaurant called Avli’s which is another one of those places tucked away! The staff were super friendly and our room gleamed every day.

& you made it! As promised πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

We’d love to go back to see our friends at Skala bar and because it was such a nice island to visit, however I don’t think we’ll be going back to the same hotel unless we could guarantee a room on a lower level.

For our first holiday abroad together, it will always be special.
