rental car adventure

So, at the suggestion of our hosts, we decided to get a rental car while on Tinos.

Our plan that first evening was to pick up the car, buy some groceries, and get home and relax by the pool. However, on a whim, we decided to go on a little adventure.

After meeting some locals,

we saw this lovely mountain in the distance, and wanted to get closer to take a better picture. We drove up and up and up.

At one stop, I found fennel growing wild on the side of the road. “Oh, that grows everywhere around here,” I was later told.

I saw an old lady picking something of these plants on the side of the road. Guess what’s growing on them?

We’re not sure just yet what these are, we’re going to ask Eleni if it’s safe to eat them : )

We ended up driving way out to the northern coast and finding a gorgeous beach called Kolimbithra. Then…well, then we drove around for quite some time, trying to figure out where we were on the map. We didn’t get to end our day sitting by the pool as planned, but did end up at a little empty bar where the lonely bartender gave us each a drink on the house. And then gave us directions. I think it is an adventure we will never forget!
