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.
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.
