Wild Poppies at Kos Castle Greece

Tripping Over History: Kos Ruins in Ruins, a Greek Island in Photos

I didn't expect the ancient ruins in Kos, Greece to be so... well ... in ruins. Coming from Spain and Portugal, we were used to castles and monuments with manned entrance booths, charging plenty of Euros to let us in. Ropes and barriers to keep us off the attractions were everywhere, and guards often stood by just in case. This wasn't the case in Kos. Wildflowers grew among the ruins, and entrance booths were unmanned and sometimes covered in graffiti. Join us as we look through the lens at the Isle of Kos and a state of ruins.
