Sunset and Skopelos

On Saturday evening we drove over to the West coast of Skopelos, for a late afternoon swim at Μηλιά/Milia, before driving along to Πάνορμος/Panormos to have dinner at a spot where we could see the sunset.

Thursday was a cool and overcast day, and the wind was up. Not really a beach day, so in the morning we went in to town to have a proper walkabout there, have a drink with a view, and top up on supplies.

I spent much of the early part of the flight looking out the window spotting places I’d been: Calais could be seen clearly as could Brussels, much of the German Rheinland and Bavaria. I gazed out the window for hours longing to be down on the ground driving the Autobahns and Bundesstraßen, radio playing loud […]

I spent 2 nights over the weekend on the South Coast of England – I never really do any of the ‘touristy’ bits of Britain as I go abroad so much, but sometimes its nice to stay in my home country!
