Overcast and 22 degrees
Apparently it rained all night. This morning it is overcast but there is some blue sky appearing in the west, so maybe it will fine up. At about 1pm we are going to the resort at Vravrona where we will stay for a week and then fly back to Australia, via Singapore for a few days stop over.
Makis arrived at about 1.30 pm and Annetta booked the taxis (we had two) and we drove to Vravrona, which took about half an hour. It is a huge resort, French owned, hence a lot of French people holiday here. The sun was shining and the reception area was huge and lovely. There was a small problem checking in. We had booked room 630 for Annetta and Makis and room 629 for us. They had given 630 away to a person who was demanding that room, so Annetta and Makis were moved to room 530, which was better anyway, because the bathroom had been recently renovated. Our room is quite small but adequate with a balcony and a lovely view over the sea.
We settled in and then met for coffee downstairs. It was nice to relax and sit in the sun without the traffic noise of Halandri.
We met again for dinner at 8pm in the main dining room. It is a huge place, with buffet style meals. It's a bit like "feeding time at the zoo" but not too bad at all. There are millions of things to chose from and the food is really lovely. I actually had a salad and cold rare veal. It was so nice to be eating salad greens after all this time in Russia and the Baltic States where they just have meat, potatoes and mushrooms. Also the dessert table was very tempting and I must say I tried more than one delicacy. We were actually given two free meals tonight because of the stuff up with our rooms, but from now on, we have to pay for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is included.
We have renegotiated our package and have paid extra to have our evening meal included. The food is really good, such an amazing selection.
The Manager came to see us at dinner to apologise for the checking in fiasco. He seemed a very nice man.
We also have wifi access here, not in our room but down in the foyer, which is okay. Looking forward to a nice relaxing week in the sun.
Annetta has gone to bed, I am in the foyer blogging and Phil and Makis have gone for a walk.
