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…

From LBA to HER, and goodnight!

Oh, what a night, and it ain’t a BeeGee’s song I’m referring to! Tonight is the first night of our 14 day/2 week escape from reality, aka, honeymoon. Whilst we were married nearly a week ago, it’s taken until now for us to be able to head off. Not for anything bad, quite the opposite…

What was, and what is. Sigh.

Sorry about the lack of postings the for the last couple of days, you see, there hasn’t been much to write about. We spent Good Friday sprawled out on Fodele beach (TripAdvisor), lazing in the sun, drinking frappe’s, and reading books. It was hard work, but we forced ourselves, and I think, eventually, enjoyed ourselves for…

Going east, going west, getting lost?

Well, what a day… we have, once again, managed to do far more than we’d intended to do, and had more of an adventure than we’d meant to! What started out as a bright idea rapidly turned comedic, before becoming a little distressing. You see when we woke up this morning we decided that as…

Oils ain’t oils…

Quick post today as we’ve had a light day. After sleeping in – that diving/ear ache have really knocked us out, more than we expected – so we didn’t venture out until midday. More than enough time to drive to our first destination, just down the road, and around a couple of corners to Paraschakis…
