Driving the Narrow Streets of Leros


Thursday 12 September, 2013 by Uncle Spike

Back in summer 2013 we were darting around the Greek Dodecanese island of Leros in Eugene, our wacky little Kia Picanto rental. This strange little car had already taken us to see the delights of the coastline, the tiny inland churches, as well as an offroad adventure into Greek military areas (oops). 

Having experienced some off-road adventures, a 2km drift into a Greek military zone by three Turkish nationals, we decided it was high time to backtrack, returning to the concrete roads of civilisation and a new collection of fun and games… this time, in the form of some wicked little narrow streets that even a Kia Picanto like Eugene had to breathe in occasionally to get both wing mirrors safely through the gaps between houses!

This brings to a close Eugene’s adventures with us, and these parting shots were taken with some 30 minutes left on the rental clock…






Still don’t get it? this’ll give you the gist… maybe this will help explain why we loved Eugene: not exactly Main Street, eh?

    Boy, those are really narrow streets. No wonder they have the picanto on offer. And was that a bikini-clad young lady at the start of the clip? My male cousins would love it there 🙂
