Wow - The more I exploring this place, the more amazing it gets!
We woke up late today, and after a lazy breakfast, which was very good btw! we headed over to the beach for some serious rest and relaxation.
Like I said before, these beaches are nothing like the ones at home. They are full of pebbles, really hard to walk on, so you need to bring your shoes. The beaches are also very small, that is, from the road to the water, is usually only 5 to 10 meters. The water itself, was very salty, but super warm, and not a wave in sight! Instead of people spinning around on surfboards for fun here, they all go on jetskis, or parasail, which we got so see!
Anyway, we hopped down to the beach and lay on the free deck chairs there and swam all morning. it was so nice to swim, except there were fish that nibbled at your feet if you kept them still for long enough, so you had to keep swimming around!
Around 2 pm we went the the cute little shop I went to the night before. It looked out onto the sea and was very cheap. After a very yummy greek meal ( now my absolute fave food!) we went to the pool for the afternoon to meet all of the other contiki groups and have a few drinks!
It was really cool and everyone was very nice!
After a nice afternoon and a bit of a chill watching bear grills with the tour guid and bus driver of one of the tours, we walked into the nears city, which, although was only 20 mins away, took as a very long time as we had to walk on the highway. There were cars screaming around the corners at an alarming rate so everytime we heard one coming we basically dove into the spiky bushes on the road until they passes. We were scrached and bruised by the time we got there to say the least!
We did get there in the end and I think a guy in one of the shops felt sorry for us because he gave us a special deal on gyros ( a tradtional greek meat dish) and free oslo - the yummest alchohol ever!
Dinner was yummy and run by a family which was cute as! We decided to catch a taxi home as not to kill ourselves!
