Crete was wonderful. A completely stop-everything-do-nothing-eat-taramasalata-all-day-long holiday, with no work, no phones beeping and no laptop or camera in sight, (which is why all these pics are snapped on my phone).
Taking these few days to stop and reset with my partner in crime and all things HAPPY, was exactly what I needed. I ate more Greek salad than I thought was actually possible, listened to podcasts, stared out to sea and got a bit addicted to The Beach Boys…
We stayed at the Blue Palace Resort & Spa in Elounda, which is situated right opposite the island of Spinalonga. And for those of you that don’t know, this very island is the location for Victoria Hislop’s best selling book ‘The Island‘. So that was quite magical – listening to the audio book (LOVE audio books for holiday – do download Audible if you haven’t already) while gazing out to sea at the very island that I was hearing about… it gave me tingles ;)
So now I am home. Rested and with a mysterious skin rash, that I think I got from the Greek sun cream (we ran out while we were there…)
So if anyone knows what I should do about that, please do let me know. Meanwhile, I am so pleased to be home and I can’ wait to get back into this glorious city of mine for a little while… before I whizz off to Croatia!
