The summer has emphasised how special our project is, and has reminded us every day that the choices and mistakes we have made are coming together to really create something special and magical on the Island of Kos.
There are so many people this summer that have really helped us cement our ideas into stone, and to ensure that our ideas are a working reality that will really make a great holiday destination, and life for us.
Firstly I would like to thank our volunteers and hired hands that have helped us this summer from gardening to cooking and cleaning to general emotional support, and being our test subjects for all the ideas we have. It has been lovely sharing our vision, or lives and our world with you for the few months we had you.
I would also like to thank our family members and friends for coming to visit us, working with us, and helping us from afar. It has been such a pleasure to have one after the other of family and friends that we have hosted, staying with us and keeping us sane. Not a week went by where there wasn’t someone here with us reminding us of home and how loved we are. Our family have also been a great help by sharing with us all the places they have visited on and around Kos being our eyes and ears while we are working for the best things to do around the island. Most importantly they have been crucial in helping us settle here and making this new adventure start to feel like home.
A special thank you to those that stayed and helped on the project, from cleaning and cooking to building us a chicken coup! Endless gardening help and spending days at the beach minding our sun beds. This has really helped us shape the way to run aspects of our business like our cleaning management systems, our sun beds and gardens. They have also helped give us trustworthy insights into companies, destinations and activities we didn’t find the time to do ourselves. And reminded us of course that family is the most important thing in the world!
Next I would like to thank all the locals and people living on the island that have help us connect, done us favours and worked with us. Opening a business in a foreign place is a daunting task, and having this help and trust has gone along way for us. They have helped us out of many tight spots. It has also opened up many relationships, with many local faces that will now be working along side us next year and many local business we will be teaming up, who we are looking forward to introducing in our next blog.
