It's been a long time since we've had a self catering holiday, rather than staying in hotels and if I'm honest, it really isn't for me. I'm also not really a beach person and while there are some historic sites to visit, they're not really aimed at tourists.
231 Sunday Drove south for an hour and found a lovely exclusive beach restaurant where we had lunch than swam and snorkelled for the afternoon, spent the evening in a local bar watching the football and drinking beer.
235 Thursday Back to the same beach as yesterday after a lie in and leisurely breakfast in the apartment. Had an afternoon nap then out for dinner, not impressed with my sea bass as I had to fillet it myself.
236 Friday I started the long journey home, an hour to the airport. I flew 2 hours ahead of Peter as I was returning to the UK and him to Dubai. My plane landed half an hour after the coach departed so I stayed in a hotel for the night.
237 Saturday Up early for breakfast, showered and repacked, blogged, drank coffee at the airport and arrived back in South Wales at 7pm.

Sorry to read that Greece wasn't as great as hoped for. I can't stand really busy beaches, probably why we never go away in the summer holidays. That sunset shot is lovely #365ReplyDelete
I think not being a beach person didn't help at all, we had a lovely time, i was just disappointed with the area we stayed inDelete
Sorry to hear that your holiday to Greece wasn't quite what you'd hoped for. I don't like busy beaches either! I love self catering holidays, but have only once done one outside the UK. I hope Peter wasn't in too much of a mess after the red wine incident!ReplyDelete
thankfully the red wine washed outDelete
Oh no! That's a shame your holiday wasn't that great....ReplyDelete
Lovely photos! The sunset is beautiful.
Hooray for the free dinner...lol Poor Peter though.
We did laugh about it thankfullyDelete
Sorry it wasn't as nice as yo'd hoped. I'm not so keen on self catering really either especially abroad. I like a holiday from the cooking and washing up.ReplyDelete
We've done self catering before, it just really hadn't improved much over the yearsDelete
Beautiful sunset. I'm not a beach person either, i.e. I don't enjoy sunbathing. But I do love secluded beaches, and just watching the waves. I presume the waitress accidentally splashed the red wine over Peter? :) And sorry to hear you didn't feel it was as nice as you were hoping for.ReplyDelete
yes the wine spillage was accidental but she covered him from head to toeDelete
what a shame about the holiday not being what you had expected but nice all the same to get some couple time with Peter.ReplyDelete
Yeuuccchhh to the fish, it would have stayed whole had that been me and gone back untouched, cant stand bones in fish let a lobe a head and tail.
Never seen the point of a beach where you are crammed into a square foot of space.
we did have a relaxing break and we love trying different foods, but we were disappointed with the accommodationDelete
Lovely sunset photo! Shame the holiday wasn't as hoped but at least you had some time together! #365ReplyDelete
yes we had a lovely week together, it was just the location that was a problemDelete
I hope there are some happy moments from your holiday for you to remember. Not keen on the fish pic: I'm a vegetarian! #project365ReplyDelete
oh yes, we had a relaxing time, just not the apartmentDelete
