We were in kefalos last year and hired a quad. We were drivign to mastichari and this huge black thing landed on my boyfriends neck. It stung him and he literally had to grab it with his hand to get it off. His neck swelled slightly but we just put some antihistemine cream on it and it was fine, but hesaid it was very painful, so be careful.

When we were by the pool up on the hill side there were really huge wasps flying around and looked like they could give you a nasty sting if the tried. Also some huge big black bugs flying around sting as well so i was told!
Everyone from old grannies to young kids seem to be racing around on motorbikes or scooters. It's a very poular form of transport on Kos, but beware - their driving standards are not what is expected in the UK.
It's not unusual to see 3 or even 4 persons on a scooter. We also saw young lads racing each other down the road on their scooters.
Although it is compulsory to wear a helmet, almost no one does and the police (never saw them), turn a blind eye.
