Greek Islands: Kimolos and Paros

Aahhh. The final instalment of our Greek Islands summer. The last 2 weeks were spent on Kimolos and Paros - both in the Cyclades but very different to each other. Kimolos is a small island with only 1 village and a permanent population of 600 hundred people, and donkeys are still used to get around. The village is a very fun place to be, it is the social heart of the island and is full of life every night of the week. Everyone knows everyone and after only 2 days I started to recognise people. We spent our nights in the village, in the main square with a church (of course),  a handful of restaurants and a playground. By day we hung out on Prassa beach, one of my favourite in the whole of the Greek Islands, and home to the clearest aqua water.

Paros, is a big island - huge in comparison. It has a full blown tourism industry with ferries coming and going all day. It has hundreds of restaurants and so many things to keep you entertained. Beaches everywhere, restaurants, bars, shops, more restaurants and more beaches. There were so many options you could stay for weeks. Instead we took it easy and  soaked up the last of the summer heat.
