My first time on an ATV

Hahaha, great, huh? Just like a pro.
Oh, today was fun!  Rented a four-wheeler for the day to explore the island.  I felt like such a fool at first!!  But once I got the hang of it, it was great!  Got the chance to see all kinds of things I wouldn't have been able to, had I not had some wheels.  First stop was a small town, Kamari, then to Perissa, which was a nice little beach.  Met some Austrailians ATVing too, and we all went to the highest point of the island which had incredible views!  To be expected.  I later checked out the Red Beach, wasn't as cool as I would have thought.. Then to the Lighthouse, the Americans I met the other day told me about.  Pretty freaking awesome, like the end of the Earth.  Huge cliffs.  Seas for forever!  Was really amazing.  The quietest I think I've ever heard, or not heard... super peaceful. Perfect place for a snack!

Tonight I'm getting on a ferry to Rhodes.  13hr. journey, yikes.
Bringing along lots of Clementines-they are AMAZING here!- and chocolate, hopefully that will hold me over!
