After a hectic summer and autumn, Andrew and I took a short holiday in Greece, to relax and spend some time together. We were lucky to find a perfect balance of sightseeing in Athens and chilling out buy the Aegean Sea, by basing ourselves in the lovely beach town of Vouliagmeni.
Although we’ve been doing loads of travelling recently, we realised it’s been several years since we’ve gone somewhere together, just the two of us: not for Andrew’s work, or to visit anyone, or attend any special events. It was high time for some us time.
With all of our travels in Europe, neither Andrew nor I had ever actually made it to Greece. It wasn’t for lack of trying. But whenever we looked at ticket prices, it was so much more expensive than flying elsewhere in the Mediterranean. But finally, this autumn, the fates aligned and a great hotel deal appeared in my in-box.
