Back, again

Just a quick update. We’re back home, safe and sound. Our last ‘day’ in Athens wasn’t that long, as we had a late start, and an early afternoon flight. So by the time we ducked down to a nearby shop and bought all of their bottles of Greek Loux lemonade that pretty well finished off…

At sea, to see

Well, what a day. I’m not really sure how to describe our experience, it’s been a day filled with polarities and mixed emotions. We were up on time, and after inhaling breakfast made sure we were outside our designated collection point early. That’s about where things went weird. Instead of being collected by the Evermore…

Atop the Acrop.

Rarely do I use the ubiquitous ‘O.M.G.’, but today, is that day. I’d been told that in order to avoid the crowds at the Acropolis (TripAdvisor) entrance, that you need to be there early, when the gates open in fact. This piece of advice was correct, and if you’re reading this and wondering, the first…

Checking into Athens

Yasou! Yes, we’re on the road again, and after being in Paris just the other week, this is travel lark is starting to feel pretty good! Also pretty tiring, not sure how these continually travelling folks keep their energy up! Anyway, we’re back in Greece, Athens specifically, and I have to say, I think this…

Day 12 – Home time

It’s closing time, one last call for alcohol, so finish your cocktail of choice… Yeah, I know that’s not how the song goes, but it’s how we felt. We’ve become quite comfortable hanging out in the bar, chatting with our favourite bartender, smirking as she gives us freebies and other scowling looks. She’s been amazing,…

Well, that was different…

We’ve hit the boredom barrier. We’ve been relaxing so long, we’ve grown bored. Yesterday, in an attempt to stave off this boredom, we decided to walk down to the harbour and do some souvenir shopping. Boy were we in for an experience that we’ve never had before. We walked into a small shop, a couple…

Chug-chug, choo-choo!

Where is the time going?! Yesterday, because we were again feeling the urge to explore, in spite of the 30+C weather, we hopped aboard the Little Train Tour (TripAdvisor), and headed up the hills behind Agios Nikolaos, and to the village of Kritsa. The motorised train made a stop at the Panagias Kera church (TripAdvisor),…

Time flies when ice cream’s involved!

Yesterday was a blur. It went so quick. The blur was also caused from not being able to see, the bright sun and being poolside for the day meant we, quite literally, didn’t see much of anything. We spent the day oscillating between our sun-beds and the pool, punctuated here and there with a trip…

Day 4: Where did the days go?

Do. Not. Blink! That’s our advice. We blinked, 3 days went past! Yesterday and the day before we’ve spent lounging by the pool, drinking cocktails, having a swim, strolling around the town in the evening – it’s a bit warm here in the day time – and generally relaxing, we even managed to walk as…

Day 1

The sun, she rises in the east, she sets in the west, and the view we have out the window, is the one that I like best! Well, kind of. Today was our first day in Agios Nikolaos, Crete, and I have to say, it’s a little different to our last visit… where last time…
