Zante: 3 Days In And Not Much Done

This holiday was never going to be action packed. Quite the opposite in fact. I haven't done much else other than sunbathe, eat and....well, that's it!


Which of course doesn't make the most compelling of blog posts; sorry about that. But in an attempt to try and make this a little more interesting (for me, at least), I'm going to split the few photos I have taken into categories beginning with the letters that spell my name.

That'd be Caroline, by the way.

C - COCKTAILS

It had to be, didn't it?

Our hotel, Porto Zante, make fabulous cocktails. Their caipiroska (basically vodka, lime, sugar and ice) is notably awesome.


But there have been a few others too


A - ANIMALS

There's the hotel dog that seems to have fallen in love with Alex but expresses this affection by basically attacking him every time we leave our villa (much to my amusement!).

It kind of reminds me of this.

Here he is, looking adorable and innocent, pre-ambush.


Animals in town...


R - RESTAURANTS

Our hotel is just a very short cab ride away from a little tourist town called Tsilivi.


There are countless little restaurants and bars here, many doing really lovely food at incredible value. Our favourite is the Olive Tree which we visited last time we were here.


The restaurant in our hotel does gorgeous food too.


I love food cooked with a very special way.

O - ORANGE 

My favourite colour.


L - LANDSCAPE


I - I

Me!

N - NEAR WINNERS

Alex and I took part in a pub quiz in Tsilivi last night.


Out of about twelve competing teams we came second! Not bad!


We won a bottle of red wine and a Tsilivi football team scarf! Top excitement!

E - ELVIS

Me = massive Elvis fan.

Elvis themed bar = happy me


So that's it from me for now! I'm off to smother myself in Hawaiian Tropic...

I hope your weeks are all going well so far!

    1. The bikini was Asos Swim in neon orange but it doesn't seem to be there any more unfortunately. There's a similar one here on ebay (same bottoms, different top)

    1. Thank Becky! I heard the weather wasn't too great in London at the moment - something about wearing a scarf in June?? Crazy. I'm going to enjoy this sun while it lasts!
