Greece - Kos Island
In between Kos City and the Psalidi wetlands you find numerous of Eucalyptus trees. Some of them are so huge that you can easily hide a car behind their trunk. Maybe it would take three to four people or even more to embrace such a tree together...

The name eucalyptus comes from the Greek: εὐκάλυπτος, eukályptos, meaning "well covered", or "beautiful bark" .

Thanks for your comment dear Hans!
No I did not, although I see an 'A' carved in to the trunk, but it was not of my doing. ;)))
