Well it is now only a week before we go to Greece and I thought I should update on a few things before we go. I have just managed to clear most of a cold/flu out of my system in time for out trip which I am very happy about. We are both ecstatic about going away again. I have been brushing up on my Greek thanks to some audio CD's (Rapid Greek by Earworms) which I would recommend to anyone who needs a quick few sentences for a holiday. Freda as usual is packed several days before we are scheduled to leave and I will as normal leave packing until the day we leave. It was a little odd how one review of the hotel indicated he didn't want to take a photo for fear of upsetting the naked people on the beach. It made sense when I found a website listing the beach as a nudie beach. More specifically clothes are optional. Whilst doing all the preparation for our journey and I found that turning on global roaming for Freda's phone required a 250 pound deposit to make sure that we don't skip the country. A bit harsh really, that is roughly 500 Australian dollars which we don't get back for three months.

My phone should arrive in time to leave so I have working GPS (and phone for that matter) so we can navigate ourselves around the world if we get lost on the islands which is highly likley.

We went to see Paul Aiden www.paulaiden.com (Saskia's boyfriend) live again this week. Was a good night, Paul did a brilliant job, best performer on the night again. This pub was slightly smaller but that meant the place was packed which made for a great atmosphere.
