Sounds like a couple of celebrity infants or kittens, but no, they are two lovely villages in the Ionians. Like most of the Ionian Islands they were flattened in 1953 by an earthquake and have rebuilt themselves.
Kioni is a small jewel of a village with a small town quay and yachties laid out in a horseshoe of a small port. Lovely restaurants and a modern church, olive trees punctuated by the exclamation marks of cypress pines, Kioni is a delight.
We had the mooring next to and meeting the owners of Skylark, Desiree and Chris, who bravely dealt with Somali pirates and Ben the rat and still have retained their lovely sense of adventure. They advise no one to travel near Somali and have detailed instructions on dealing with a rat on board. We will heed their advice and hope that we meet no rats of either persuasion.
We left early on Thursday with great anticipation, we were going to Sami to meet with Leeanne and Cameron Dalyell. We were excited meeting old and dear friends, crew of Eventide and fellow Grammar student.
