Airport headaches, then relaxing...
13.07.2010 - 14.07.2010
View Europaaaaaaaaa on valentinaa's travel map.
So i will have to admit, there is really not that much to say, we left Den Haag at about 9o'clock and arrived WAY to early for our 1:45 flight, so we just had breakfast and chilled before we were able to check in, after that we still had time to kill so i bought chocolate from that awesome chocolate store, this place just places blocks of chocolate in a pile and lets you pick how much you want.... y.u.m.
the flight was fine, i slept most of the way because of the early start, the problem with holland for me was that , coming from australia, i'm not use to going to sleep while its still daylight! so i would always go to bed after 1130, which was never a problem if your waking up late.... which we weren't because of the flight.
So, once we reached athens we had to wait about 2 hours for the flight to mykonos, i didn't really like athens as an airport, seemed disorganized and i had to show my boarding pass every 5 parsec's.
the plane to mykonos was TINIIII TINY, and the flight was SO quick, about 20 min! :O
so once we landed in mykonos (with a red sunset over the water! ) we went to line up to get the taxi, (ps: the airport is like the coffs harbor airport....well old school) there was a massive line and we thought we were going to have to wait ages, but then a taxi driver showed up , and was asking people something, we thought it was the name of a hotel, haha, - there was a group of girls...who looked like a combination oh barbie.....and an umpa lumpa.... orange as all hell! , and she walks up to the taxi driver an he shoos her away, then she pushes out her lips in a "pout" and goes " oh pleasssse" HAHAHAHAHA - i was laughing for about 5min of the taxi ride mostly because she still got rejected. fail.
once we got to the hotel, it was just basically just straight to bed, i was so tried from hauling my luggage everywhere and moving from one airport to another that i just pass out after a small dinner.
so far i have only seen the view from my room...and from the pool deck...
B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. - its just amazing, words cannot explain, so i did take photos! - so today was gym, then relaxing in the sun... jumping in the pool, then sun....then reading in the sun...then sleeping in the sun.... a whole lot of sun... yes, i got a little burnt, so at around 1 i escaped inside and just hung out out of the sun , so as not to get TOO burnt, i'm very happy now i brought the aloe vera! :D
dinner was at a seafood restaurant , just lovely, had swordfish and a fantastic salad that had, lettuce, apple, orange, avocado, and sesame seeds nom nom nom nom nom , with a little white wine, and then 2 bailey's and milk after a walk on the beach.
i love how the beaches here have all the beach chairs and umbrellas...BUT australian beaches are still much much better, the water is just too flat! but it is relaxing
Today is the town center! going to get a new sim card and a SHITLOAD of sunscreen! - they have 50+ here!!!!
Until next time! :D
