When we went on holiday, staying somewhere quiet and nice was one of the things we wanted from our holiday. And with the prices being lower in September we got a nice hotel for a reasonable price. Iolida Beach, the hotel was a very good fit for us.
Agia Marina is a quiet little town, not too far from Chania airport. The beach was very nice and it had a few little shops where we could get what we needed. There was also many good places to eat out. We spent most our time here and didn’t travel too much around as the main purpose of our holiday was to relax.
A lot of the other people that was there at the same time as us, was pensioners and families with small children. It wasn’t a place to goo if you wanted to party hard till the wee small hours (at least that’s not the impression we got), and that worked very well for us.
One of the nice things I did when I was away from the blogging world, was taking a trip to Crete mid-September. I had decided to save some of my holiday to this time to avoid it being way to busy. An added bonus is that it was much cheaper than taking the same trip at the height of summer.

I wanted a sun holiday where I could relax and not stress with anything. So we ordered a trip from Ving, a Thomas Cook company in Norway. With a few simple clicks we had a hotel, transport and other stuff, sorted. And luckily all the logistics went swimmingly. So our week was every bit as relaxing as it could be. And luckily the weather was on our side the whole time!
As I had never been to Crete ever before I was very excited and had little idea what I could expect. And I must say it didn’t disappoint! I would really like to go back some day.
Being back in the blogging world made me realise just how much I enjoy it. Even after such a long break I have been welcomed back with open arms by good friends. That is just such a wonderful feeling. I didn’t realise how much I missed all of you until I came back. Well, better late than never.

So I have started to update myself on what has been happening on your blogs since I’ve been away. I am sure that I will miss quite a lot of great posts, but a lot of them I’ll get to read and enjoy. I woke up quite early this morning, made a cup of coffee, crawled back in bed and started reading blog posts.I most say it’s been a very enjoyable morning so far!
If you have any good posts I might have missed in my absence, feel free to post the link in the comment section. I’m going to treat myself to spending quite some time in the wonderful world of blogging this weekend.
As you might have noticed I have taken a very long leave of absence. This was not planned so I could not warn an of you, because I had no idea it would be happening. Have no fear, I am ok, but there has just been so many things going on these months that I have struggled wrapping my head around. I have not been able to write anything because my head has been in quite a state of chaos. So much so that I have not managed organising my mind by writing it down.
All the things that has been going on has been both bad and good and, as I said, has left me in a quite chaotic state. But I am slowly getting to organise my mind and I’m back to bug all of you with my rambles yet again. That is if there are any of you left. If you have left my blog I can’t say I blame you. As you won’t be here to read this you won’t hear me say that I’m sorry. But for those of you that see this I hope you’ll accept this apology for me leaving you.
I hope I find most of you well and I will do my best to catch up with all that has happened on your blogs since I took a hiatus from the wonderful world of blogging.
The weather here has been lovely lately so I have been a little absent. It’s said to turn now so I had to enjoy it while it was there.
Sunday afternoon I was so warm I just had to cool down. So I headed to Badedammen, a place to swim close by. Having been packed earlier in the day the kids had for the most part gone home and I got to enjoy a little peace and quiet.
Yes, I have to admit that I have downloaded Pokemon Go. I’m still not sure it’s quite something for me, but I decided to se what all the fuss was about.
The reason I wanted to have a go at it was that I thought it was juni of cool when I walked outside and noticed people who looked like they hadn’t seen daylight in quite some time walking around talking to stranger about a game…
Hope your all enjoying your weekend! With or without pokemons
It has been a very varied weekend. I’ve spent much time with family and I also found the time to go for some nice beer and cider with friends. The weather has been as varied as the things I have been up to. We got lucky enough with the weather when we where out and got to sit outside enjoying nice bevrages and good company.
Today my aunt bought my whole family to a very lovely Sunday lunch bufet. They had an amazing selection of food and an excellent desert table that left me incabable of moving about much for the rest of the day. So the there is not any other plans for the rest of this weekend! And as the rain is pouring down, I’m enclined to say that the weather agrees with my planning.
