Chania at Sunset

Good Morning!

Today we have woken up to a warm day with a clear blue sky. It is the first day were it is not a bit nippy outside in a dress at 8 am. Sunny days!

Unfortunately I did not wake up in harmony with the weather, but with a sore throat, deep cough and aches absolutely e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.
Just as I was super excited about beating my cold so fast, it turned around and knocked me out like ever before last night. I am pretty sure I jinxed it by saying how quickly it passed. I probably made sure I would come back in full gear by last night announcing that I knew I would wake up well and fresh this morning.
But oh well, today is such a lovely day and there is no way this cold is going to ruin that.

Last night my mum and I took the bus into Chania around 6 and spent the evening at the harbor there. We had been wanting to go in ever since we came, and yesterday we thought that if we dont do it now, we might leave it too late.

It was the first night of the holiday that I properly dresses up in a dress, and I was so excited to wear my blue dress that I never get a chance to wear at home.
It was a place worth dressing up for. It is such a beautiful place, with a wonderful atmosphere and I was happy that I had put in a bit extra effort this evening.

All the streets around the harbor where small, cozy streets full of little shops and beautiful architecture. It was full of people out to see the sights and get some shopping done and full of life!

Leading up to the harbor there is so many small Greek restaurants and coffee shops, and people out to enjoy themselves.
The buildings and stunning, and what makes it extra nice is all the artists setting up there, some sing lovely Greek songs, others paint or play an instrument.

We went for dinner at a restaurant at the harbor itself, and got there just as it was starting to get dark and could see the sunset from there.

It was perfect in every way, except for the fact that we both didn’t think to bring jackets.
We thought it was so warm when we left that we just did not need it. Of course it was clear day and sunny when we left, somehow I think we forgot that it does get dark at night – the sun actually goes away and it gets a little colder.
Having forgotten about that – and sitting right by the sea where it is windy, we got a little cold during dinner.
It didn’t help that I was coughing and starting to feel sick again and so did my mum. So after dinner we didn’t stay for as long as we would have wanted, but decided to go home and get warm.

But nevertheless, we had a wonderful evening in Chania, and I am so happy that we went. Even sitting freezing and slightly sick it was well worth it!

Back at the hotel I was very happy to change out of my dress and getting some warm clothes on, before going to a place near us for coffee.

I do hope we get time to go to Chania once more on our holiday, more prepared this time. It really is beautiful, and I would love to get some more pictures!

Now I am sitting contemplating wither to go for a run, or just straight down to the pharmacy for some c vitamins and what else they got.

I will update more later today.
Have a great day!
