Γεια σας Poros: Clock towers, parasailing & Barbie

Saturday we woke up (still in Poros and thankful it wasn’t a dream) and had a quick breakfast before biking into town, which was only about ten minutes away. The town is pretty small and very beautiful, and everyone is so nice! We decided to stop at a little restaurant since breakfast wasn’t too good/filling where I had a Greek omelette while looking out to the sea. So good.

After our small brunch, we decided to climb to the clock tower where we could overlook the island. What a beautiful view.

We did a bit of souvenir shopping and then headed back to the hotel. We had some time to lay out on the beach before we would take a boat to the other side of the island for water sports. We had the option to parasail, banana boat, jet ski or tube and meanwhile could lay out on the dock. It was awesome. I decided to go parasailing, which was absolutely gorgeous. You could see so far and the water was so clear and blue. Totally worth it. I spent most of the time laying out on the dock, but decided to banana boat too.

After being at the water sports place all day, we headed back to the hotel and had time to shower before dinner. It was good that we had time and everyone could look nice. It’s funny how different we look with a little effort and time to get ready as opposed to post-bus nap. Dinner was fish and potatoes, which wasn’t really good, but we dealt with it.

The second AESU tour group from Texas A&M had dinner with us and would be joining us for a party on the beach that night. To say the least, they were very different from us and a little out of control. As Demitri the bartender said, there was a little friction between the two groups, but Paul and Tasha had our groups’ back.
