It seems quite a distant memory now, but in July, I decided to surprise Lee for his birthday/our 10th wedding anniversary, and book a short break in the sun. I did quite a bit of shopping around, but eventually settled on Kos.
We’d been to Kos before and really liked it, and as chance would have it, I found a pretty good deal on a 3 night break to the exact same place we’d been to previously. I used onthebeach.co.uk to build the break, selecting flights, then accommodation and then transfers separately. This isn’t a sponsored post, but I was really pretty pleased with how smoothly it went and the ability to choose things separately, and then also to make several small payments, instead of one big one. Easyjet was nowhere near as grim as I remembered it, either.
We spent our days laying on sun loungers, gazing out to sea…
.. and enjoying some pretty awesome sunsets.
A man came round every day on the beach in the afternoon selling massive fresh custard doughnuts for 2 euros. IMAGINE our delight!
Also, pretty cool that my best friend and her husband and little dude, Harris were on holiday on the island at the same time, so we were able to take a taxi across Kos and spend a day with them at their fancy hotel. It was pretty good fun hanging out in the kids pool and sneaking ice creams from the bar.
All in all – go to Kos for a few days and recharge your batteries. But take mosquito repellent!
