How lucky! It’s just as we remember!

Flight took off bang on time, after smoked salmon and scrambled egg in Gordon Ramsey’s! Then a flight that dodged the storms, thank you nice B.A. pilot, really smooth flight; but what a faff the check in was. Started the process; it then stopped at putting in the e ticket number, so we had to queue to see the nice lady. “Sorry, it’s not picking up charter flights, hence the long queue.” Boarding pass was issued and we then joined the next long queue to check ourselves in at the bag drop desk. 😱😱😱 Lots of terminals not working; always such a relaxed and tranquil start to your adventure.

The arrival in Greece was slightly ahead of time but three flights had the audacity to arrive almost simultaneously. So let’s put the Heathrow luggage on the Gatwick arrivals carousel and visa versa, just for fun! Took over an hour to get out, with people running from carousel to carousel, in the usual Greek chaotic, jocular fashion.

But look at that bed and now – the views. From our balcony and the bar area to the pool.

And the meal tonight was on the house! Starter, main course and dessert for free! Well, blow me down what a start and all we paid for was the wine €19.50 for a bottle. Welcome to Greece and the weather looks great for the week; getting to the 90’s by the end of the week! Really! Last time we had thunderstorms. The hire car is a tiny, sweet little Fiat but hey you wouldn’t drive the Lexus round some of these roads. And that’s it till tomorrow, a lift full of mirrors but no smoke.

Thanks for reading. Comments, as always, very welcome.

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. Thanks Frank, it’s looking good! We overslept; I had set the alarm for a very relaxing 08-30 but my phone for some reason never updated itself, (don’t we get so use to these automatic events?) and we didn’t awake till 0900! Which technically is 0700 in the U.K. as they are two hours ahead here. Quick, to breakfast, lad!

  2. Augers well for the week, now that the actual journey is out of the way. Hope you both have a very enjoyable and relaxing week.
