Friday! Fat lady stand by please! Standby orchestra.

Last night was not comfortable. Somewhere someone chatted away, quite loudly, a man and a woman until around 2a.m. So either the walls have become incredibly thin, or a door was open onto a balcony and the noise filtered in through the window. Either way it was a pain and I did complain to the lovely lady at reception, who was mortified, and said, “The whole point of the hotel is peace and quiet.” She has made a note and asked us to report back in the morning if it happens again. The silly thing about that sort of situation is that you are constantly thinking, ‘oh this will stop in a minute, surely.’ And, of course, it doesn’t.

To happier matters. Nothing happened today, we lounged by the sea and for those old enough to remember, the setting on the camera would have been ‘cloudy, bright.’

Cape Doukato, the lighthouse.

The beach at Egremni. 300 steps! They need a nice funicular.

We ate tonight for the last time in our favourite Taverna, and we now know the noisy folk are in room 104, next door. It is ten past ten and they are out on their balcony. She is laughing like a Hyena, which is lovely until you want to go to sleep.

Beautiful flowers.

And that was today. We got our letter telling us when to turn up at the airport. It has been wonderful, the forecast for tomorrow is looking really good for our last day.

Thank you so much for reading. Take care M & M.

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

  1. Well, we know that “all good things must come to an end!” Shame you had to deal with ‘towelgate’ and ‘hyenagate’ but apart from that it sounds as though you’ve had a great time and the location was so beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us and here’s to the next time.

    1. The mad Hyena is still there but as long as they shut up by 11pm like they did last night, then OK. It’s one of those nervous, really child like, high pitched, laughs that can do nothing but get on your nerves! Thanks for reading S & S and commenting. M & M

    1. All in all fantastic. We haven’t mentioned the prices in the Tavernas, that seem unreal. Mid 20 Euros, for wine, main course, bread, water and Ouzo and little dessert. Prices we can’t remember paying for ages. And the weather that looked so bad in the forecast for this week has proved to be unfounded because it has been lovely. The Hyena lady has gone to the bar downstairs we must try to get to sleep before they return. Thanks Denny xxxx
