From Rome (see blog) a buddy and I took a train straight to Brindisi, Italy and then caught an overnight ferry to Athens, Greece. We met up with a few friends that we're part of an organized trip through the islands over the next 5 days so we decided to tag along and hit Mykonos, Paros, Ios, Syros, and Kos. Quite honestly I couldn't tell on island from another but do remember huge parties on Ios, and Kos seemed to have the most ruins and geographical features. Other than that they all seemed to blend together with great beaches, weather, parties and people. After a week I was more than ready to move on to Turkey (see Blog).
