A walk through town!

So these are just some crazy photos from one of the days that we walked through town!!! Yes it's crazy to think that the two of us can take so many pictures on a short walk through town but don't worry there are even more than the ones we posted here! The one above is just some random tree I climbed into!

This is a really cool tractor we found!!! I thought it made for some great pictures....
This is just some randomness... I thought it turned out kinda cool though!
The views here are so beautiful! We are surrounded with beauty although sometimes we do miss the mountains!
Who knows what this is... It kinda looks like I'm climbing out of the wall but really it's the sidewalk.
This is a picture of some baby snails on the piece of wood I'm holding... It's crazy!

We are still not so sure what this is! We had fun taking pictures with it though.
I believe there is a Greek church behind us!
This is just us hanging out! I think maybe I was on the phone!?! Not really sure...

Mandy and I love good old Tingaki.... it is a pretty small town but we've been finding lots of things to take pictures of and be really random!! I thought it would be fun to make a slideshow for something different! Here are some of the pictures we have taken! Have a look and just know that although we are having fun we miss you all and are excited to see you in a few months!!!

A night out on the town!

Don't worry everyone! It's just apple juice! The man brought shots for everyone and when we told him that we don't drink he brought us shot glasses with apple juice:)
The whole gang!!!

Walking back to the resort after a great evening of just relaxing!

This was our girls night out on the town!!! Everyone just needed to get out and away from the hotel for a bit to relax and let go!!! Of course the others had a couple of drinks! I bet you can't guess what Mandy and I had!?!? Really hard I know.....we ate delicious chocolate ice cream!!! It was so nice to just be out and relaxing. The girls here at work are so much fun! I'm glad I've been able to get to know so many people from around the world. PS -- there are more pictures of this on facebook....I couldn't figure out how to save them to upload them!!! Ok, so i figured out how but for some reason they are much bigger than the others! I'm still trying to get this whole blogging thing figured out!

Randomness on the Island!

This is a picture of the restaurant where I work! It's nice and fun... Not extremely busy still but we're hopeful for July!! These pictures are definitely a lot of randomness from what we have been doing!!! One is of us at the beach....we love going to the beach! We go on pretty much a daily basis!! Crazy!
A couple of the other pictures are some of the guests who have been staying at the hotel! They are so much fun and we are loving being able to meet so many people from all around the world!

This is crazy Mrs. Panayotis!!! She is crazy and terribly frightening! She yells and screams all the time! everyone is afraid of her but Mandy being the good soul that she is made her a flower necklace!!!

The town of Kos....

Well, pretty much Mandy and I have been having the time of our lives....we can barely believe that we are really living on the other side of the world. These are some pictures from our trip into Kos town. This one is actually from our walk along the sea shore! Don't worry, it only took us three hours.... we even thought we were going to miss dinner. hehehe!

Here is a great picture with us and some typical Greek men! They make me laugh so hard. We stopped to ask them how to walk along the beach because we weren't sure and they all started arguing about who was supposed to be talking to us and which way we should be going. The wonderful ways of the Greeks!

These pictures are of a random hat Mandy found on a bench! Yes where she is pointing at it....that is exactly how she found it! Well, of course I decided to put it on my head cause I thought it would be a funny picture. She was sure I was going to get lice from the hat but I just laughed and did it anyway. There's always something funny with the two of us!

Oh yes, these are awesome photos as well!!! I was being choked by the tree! Don't ask me where the idea came from because I have no idea.... And Mandy, i'm not sure what was going on but I think she was trying to seduce the tree! She's been a little lonely here on the island! Trees don't really work quite as well as boys though! There a little less comfy to cuddle with:)
This was just a cool picture of the bridge in the town... I thought standing on the ball would look cool. It definitely proved to be harder than I thought it would! As you can see I couldn't stay on top of it! I am trying to keep my balance but it just wasn't working for me!

These are just some pretty pictures down by the sea! The one where Mandy has her fingers up is pretty funny! She was standing there like that and I asked her what she was doing!? She very seriously replied, "I'm holding turkey!" And I said....."oh really?" As you can see she is holding the sea! Although you can see Turkey, she is definitely not holding it!

I don't know who thinks it's cool to put graffiti all over the ancient ruins but it made for some awesome photos! Mandy really looks gangster! Me on the other hand, who knows what I'm doing but nonetheless having a good time doing it!
When we took this photo I had no idea there were ants crawling all over the rock! When I saw them it kinda scared me but I managed to hang on long enough to take another photo too!

These two photos are in loving memory of our dear parents!!! Memories of dads favorite pose while in Greece! I'm doing the one that dad always did and Mandy is doing mom's favorite one!
Ahhhh.... Greek Yuros (Gyros).... Need I say more!!!
They are soooo delicious! A life staple here on the island:)
