Day 294 – Samos Island, Greece
This afternoon we were planning on catching a local bus to Kokarri, a nearby beach town. After waiting on the bus for about 30 minutes, we realized that public transportation was not operating. We were informed by the locals that today is a Greek holiday and that all of the restaurants and local establishments were participating in a European wide strike. Samos City was basically a ghost town for the entire day. Naturally we headed to the beach where we spent hours sunbathing and relaxing in the most tranquil setting. We basically had the entire beach to ourselves which was wonderful. Later on we hiked up a nearby cliff for some beautiful views.
