A Week In Zante, Greece

After enduring The World's Worst Summer last year, Luke and I decided to do something awesome this year to counterbalance it. Luke, however, managed to outdo himself and for our fourth anniversary back in February he surprised me with tickets for a holiday to Zante. What a gem. We had a lovely week relaxing by the pool, reading a multitude of books and eating good food. I took a few photographs along the way so, instead of writing a coherent post, I thought I'd sort of dump them here for your own perusal. The format is reminiscent of 'week in photos' posts circa 2010. Non?! in case you're wondering, we stayed at the Roseland Hotel in Kalamaki. I'd recommend it to those of you that just want a chilled low-key break. Make sure you're sitting comfortably because there's quite a few snaps....

Phew! I'm now super sad that I'm no longer in Greece. Boo. I also took two disposable cameras worth of photographs so I may update you and share those once I get them back! Drag the holiday out a little longer! Are you going anywhere this Summer? Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world right now, whether it's near home or on the other side of the world? 

If you'd like to scroll through all of my adventures then you can do so.

  4. Aww I love Greece. These photos make me want to go back. I love little greek tavernas too! Especially when they've got the Greek music playing too... just to get into the spirit even more! X

  6. ooooh look at all that yummy food! I'm not going anywhere exotic this year because I'm saving for a big trip to the US next year but I'm heading to London in September for 3 days to see a play and stroll around the parks as I normally rush in and out for events. Will be nice to be leisurely in London xx

  10. Unicorns are actually Scotland's official national animal, I think that's why they're on the passport!

  11. I completely forgot you went to Zante because I am a douche with a dreadful memory, otherwise I (obvs) would have hounded you with holibobs questions (maybe be thankful for the dreadful mem!)) These are some seriously good snaps my friend (and food. ALL the food) - I've been to Zante and had a really rather dreadful time (not Zante's fault, but the company I chose to keep) and I'd kind of written it off, but you've most certainly made me put it back on the 'list', so, thank you! I'm happy you had such a wonderful time because you definitely deserved it.

    Also, no holibobs plans for me :( which I'm tres sad about. Possibly an Eric the Motorhome trip in September, but nothing set in stone as of yet. I'm gasping for some sun!!

  12. I love Greece, it's possible my favourite country because if it's history and culture! I went when i was younger and i plan on going again soon! I'm stuck with going to Ireland though this year, which I'm not that bothered about since i go every year and I know almost everyone there!

    P.s. I love your blog!

  13. Ah what a wonderful way to celebrate! Luke is such a good egg. You look so beautiful and sunkissed and happy. You've made me desperately crave salty air and fresh grilled fish and sunshine!

  14. It looks like you had a lovely holiday! I've been to Greece once - Athens - on a school trip back in year 6 so I don't think that really counts. I'd love to revisit in the future. Thanks for sharing with us.

  18. Ahhh, Zante looks SO beautiful! It looks like you had an incredible time. I could definitely do with a little week out to sleep, eat good food, soak up the sunshine, and read! I'm going to Florida in October but it still feels so long away that I don't think I've really accepted that it's happening yet!

  22. I'm always a big fan of a mega photo dump :) Looks like you and Alex had an amazing time in Greece, very jealous! Very much approve of your selection of books there too - can't wait to read what you thought of them!

    Me and my boyfriend visited Zante last year and we stayed in Kalamaki too! We spotted the Roseland on the way to our hotel and it looked lovely! I think we visited the same beaches as you, which is where me and my boyfriend spent most of our days! You've made me want to go back.. I miss it! </3
