My Holiday from...not hell, but somewhere close.
Tuesday, August 21, 2007

So I am back from Rhodes. Okay, I've been back almost a week, but you know, been keeping busy.

I have always loved Greece. I've been a lot in my short lifetime, once to Kos, twice to Crete, and now to Rhodes. And I've always loved it. The people are great, the food is perfection, and the weather is - admitedly, unsuitable for a girl who can burn and faint in a country currently half underwater, - but still, you know, pleasant.

So what went wrong in Rhodes?

Well, pretty much the apartments sucked. I can cope will dingy and basic, after all, my family are tight. We aren't looking for luxury.

But you know, a pool that isn't surrounded by a massive wall which blocks out the sunlight and is therefore freezing would be nice.

And if the snack bar served food, that would be great.

And if the rooms didn't lock you in when they felt like it. (Seriously, this little 5 year old girl got locked in, bless her. So did I, but you know, sympathy for kids.)

And you know, wire sticking out of bathroom wall. Not so good.

And if they insist that you put loo roll in the toilets, they could at least empty the bins at some point during the week.

Ach, I'm gonna stop complaining now, cos the fact is, all that wouldn't matter so much if it hadn't been for my brother moaning non stop the entire time. He complains that he's not getting enough sunbathinh done, WHILE throwing up from sunstroke.

He does my HEAD in.

Anyway, I'm back, and it really wasn't as bad as I'm making out. I'm just gonna be a but more wary getting last minute deals from now on. Up till now we;ve been lucky and found great places, but clearly that's not always gonna happen.

So, some photies. Enjoy!!

Me and my watermelon. Yeah, it's a fan. I know. How cool.

Me and melon in the sea.

Me. (Obviously)

Me and my sister.

We're MONKEY'S!!!!!

The annoying brother. Eurgh.

Him again.


SILLY HATS!!!!!!!!!

Well, Chazzer, I can understand how many small things can make a vacation suck, but my God girl, you were in Greece! Which may not seem like a big deal to someone whose been there a few times, but I have massive case of jealousy right now cause I've been stuck here in Korea, working every day, in the rainy season where I've only seen the sun twice in the last three weeks, where the humidity is in the high 90s, and where you sweat walking from the bedroom to the kitchen. By the way, nice pics. Love the silly hats. Was that your brother and sis with you? Love the new stories you are writing, too. Thank's for your continued comments on mine. Later

Looks like you might have had a little fun. Besides all the crappiness, hope you had a good time somewhere in there! Wasn't there a heat wave over there? Well, welcome home anyways!
