Back on The Beach

Today I woke up feeling great – finally! It was such a great feeling, feeling like my self again!

It was such a good day, the weather was great, I was feeling great and the beach was great!

After having spent most time indoors the last few days and minimum time at the beach it was amazing to have a day just laying in the sun.
We had our lunch at the beach and after I went on a little walk by the sea before just relaxing in the sun.dscf1662dscf1659dscf1653dscf1663dscf1669

I am craving taking the bus to one of the more quite beaches on the Island, I have heard there are some absolutely gorgeous white sanded beaches  further east and I hope to be able to convince my mum to come with me and take the bus to one of these places.

I really like the beach here in Agia Marina, and today I was thrilled that I was finally feeling fine to spend the day there. The only thing is that the beach is packed with tourists, and although it is very nice and convenient especially with so many places to grab a bite to eat or a cold drink, I also think it is nice to get away a bit on holiday to very peaceful places.

My mum and I are completely different when it comes to this. I love going to places with minimum of tourists, even very quiet places, such as villages with a small population. Where there is no stress or rush, just peaceful and quiet.
To my mum a good holiday is a place that is built for tourism, where she can meet both locals and other Norwegian people and where there is food and music places on every corner, and a lot of tourists and people.

It is quite funny how we are so different, but each to their own.
I really like being here though, and if we do a few outings it is the perfect balance of both our wishes.

Anyways, we had a fantastic day today and I hope I got a bit more of a tan.
I even went for a full run after the beach and it felt wonderful.
Now I am about to get in the shower and get ready to go to dinner.

First days in Crete, Greece

Hello from Crete, Greece!
dscf1551

After a long journey, first to Norway and then from Norway to Crete, we are finally here!

We have been here for five days already, but because we haven’t had internet I have been offline. But now I have finally sorted it out.

It is so beautiful here.
From our room we can see the Mediterranean and the sound of the waves is amazing to sit and listen to.

So far on our holiday we have been taking it slow. I am jet to get a good tan or go to any of the sites I want to see, but I think this last week that will all be done.

We have had some days of sun and some with rain and wind, and unfortunately, most of the sunny days I have had a big cold and had to go up from the beach early.
I have a slight sunburn on my shoulders and face, and the rest of me is as pale as it was before we left. However, now it seems my cold is gone (silly us put the air condition of full the first days and of course both of us got ill) and I am expecting the next week to be great! Not to mention that my neck and back is finally better after weeks of pain, and it is such a relief!

Today I have planned a long run in the morning, and after breakfast spend most of the day at the beach. I am in dire need to work on my tan, I look like a ghost compared to everyone else here.

Over the next few days I hope to get myself on some excursions to see some of the historical sight on this beautiful Island, but first I plan to get a little tan, otherwise I will stand out like a sore thumb in all the pictures!

That is my quick update from out holiday so far, not a lot to tell so far, but it is coming!

I hope everyone is having a great week, on holiday or at home!
