HELLO CRETE

Wow, hello again blog. I think this is the longest (unplanned) break I've taken from my little writing space on the internet. I wish I had a good excuse but really, having a full time job, running a home and uploading weekly videos to YouTube has taken its toll on me the last few months and has meant my little blog has slipped away from me. I've got my inspiration and motivation back now though so I want to get you up to speed. Before I do that I want to share my recent holiday with you as I had a rather lovely time. Let's get started. 



Dan and I went away with his family a couple of weeks ago and we went to the rather beautiful Crete. We stayed in this lovely villa just outside Elounda village which we found on Owner's Direct. I love staying in villas because it feels so luxurious and so peaceful. The first photo is one of the best beaches I've ever been to- Istro. It was a small, quiet, tucked away beach with lovely sand and such clear blue water. We spent most of our days lazing around here.



A few of our evenings were spent in Plaka, which was such a cute little seaside village, over looking Spinalonga Island across the water. There were under ten restaurants there so it had a really lovely intimate feel to it. I loved all the little touches in the restaurants and in the shops.



One day we actually took a little trip to Spinalonga, getting a boat across from Plaka. It was a pretty eerie place but it was interesting to see a bit of culture and history, as well as the gorgeous views. 


We spent a bit of time in another little seaside town called Sissi and we played a fun round of crazy golf (had to be done!). It would have been nice to eat here of an evening but it was a bit far to drive back. 


Our other evenings were spent in Elounda and Agios Nikoloas. Elounda was such a great place for dinner as it was relaxed, but also had enough buzz for an enjoyable evening. One night we visited Rady's Cocktail Bar which was so lovely but the cocktails were the strongest cocktails I've ever drunk. Unsurprisingly I had a good night! This last photo was taken in Agios Nikolaos. The photos make it look like a little Venice, but unfortunately we weren't too impressed with the places to eat, it didn't have a nice feel like the others. 


One of the best days was spent on Chrissi Island which was such a magical place. I love finding a good beach and this was beautiful. The sand was so lovely and the water was so clear and blue. If you're visiting Crete, I would definitely recommend a day trip to the island! 

I loved writing this blog post as it took me back to the lovely holiday! Although now I really want to book another one! I hope you enjoyed my pictures and reading about my holiday. Let me know in the comments if you've got a holiday planned this year. Thanks for sticking with me! 

I've just uploaded my holiday vlog and lookbook so I'll put that below too!
