It’s 2.53pm and I’m sat at Bolton Market in their newly refurbished food court with a small glass of Rose. I can hear you wincing. I know, my fellow Boltonians, you are cringing at what I have just so openly divulged. You might picture me in a dingy boozer surrounded by old men who have been unemployed since their paper boy days, aged 15. You would, of course, be mistaken. There has been a wave of renovation here.
Sitting in a small out-of-town coffee house, I’m listening to the conversation of four ladies. They’re discussing their husbands, The Great British Bake Off and their issues with ever-changing technology.
I shouldn’t really be listening, I know, but there is something refreshing about it.
One of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, Kos is both an area of outstanding beauty and a welcoming, lively destination situated in the Aegean Sea.
If you are reading this and expecting a travel guide that will inform you of the best hotels, restaurants and beaches, I apologise, you will be sadly disappointed.
Kos, from my experience, is a place to be admired, examined and consumed in it’s most natural form. It’s the place once home to the ‘Father of Medicine’, Hippocrates, and that- according the Greek mythology- was visited by Hercules. The destination was also home to soldiers during the Trojan War, as told by Homer in TheOdyssey.
