Caught the taxi at 3.45 with Josh and Susan. We zoomed to Heathrow and where one of the first to check in at the Mark Warner desks. We went straight to the bar but only Nick joined me in a beer. The flight was over 3 hrs and we get a nice meal I got a bit of sleep but mainly had my earphones because of screaming kids. The airport was quite small but I got an ice cream for the short coach ride. Me and Mike went to the beach bar to avoid the check in queue others joined us then I ran to Kardamena to hack a portal. Unfortunately no volleyball. The dinner was good and I was the youngest on the table at dinner. Most people went to bed at 8.30 UK time but Steve and Yantha kept me up till 11.
Up about 11 had a bit of stand up paddle boarding with Nick and Jo we went out to the reef. Then some tennis with Mike and Nigel and then on another run to Kardamena for hacking. There was a game of volleyball at 5pm which was well attended and after we had a buffet lunch we headed into Kardamena by bus. Most of us went and we stopped at a favourite bar where I had a raspberry freeze and then I had a sambucccaca with Susan. We then moved on to the 1960 bar and I had a jaeger grenade with Jon. After there we pushed on to the downtown nightclub and this was quite salsa based. It took me quite a while to get the rhythm. Eventually I left and walked home on my own.
Volleyball at 11.15am very well attended played some good games and when the chap left we carried on using my ball so had a good long game. Mike and Mark played. We had a quick refresher then me and Rachel biked to the boulder fields. We climbed quite a number of things and got a bit scratched from thorns it was a good few hours and then we rushed back home a bit to avoid rain but it eased off and I was able to stop in Kardamena and hack a portal. Back then and a drink in the pool bar before volleyball. There were not so many people, it was a bit windy and they pulled in the boats and stuck them right next to the court. So we stopped after the Germans beat the English, me, Mark and Mike. We had dinner later at the terrace which was nice and we had pizza and I went and watched the little grease play they put on. It was a quiet night we didn't go into town just stayed in the bar.
textVery wet day. I walked into town with Mark and Rachel. I managed to hack my portal. We walked out the other side but turned back after a mile. We stopped at a bar and had wedges and a banana sandwich cocktail. In the evening there was a pub quiz but I didn't take part, it looked like it was going to be a quiet night but then we found that our rooms had been flooded and were under an inch of water. I managed to secure a room for me and Mike in the lakitira hotel, so I got a really nice double bed with an en suite bathroom.
We moved out of the hotel and I did some stand up paddle boarding in the quite choppy water. With Susan as there was a river where the volleyball court had been . I then ran into town and had a nice ice cream and got myself and hacked my portal back then and I had a game of tennis with Mike and I was ahead one set when we stopped. We then had a nice beer at the beach bar before lunch. After lunch I headed into town on the bus and Lisa came with me but only to do shopping. I stopped at a number of bars and had some sambuccas. I chatted to a chap in the chilli peppers bar who had not seen so much rain in 46 years. After a couple more bars I saw the others walk past the bar I was in and joined them as we went back to the bar where we had a banana sandwich cocktail. I then quickly went to crackers bar and got talking with some girls as I had a dog's bollocks cocktail. I went back and got the others and this earned me a free shot of Reese butter cup vodka and then a Mars bar vodka shot which was very thick we then went to the pub and played pool and darts. I then went to the status club on my own and met the girls from crackers and the maker of the Kos life app. After the club I had another sambucca in a 24 hour hotel bar and talked to the barman then I had a kebab and got a cab home
I cycled into town and did some stand up paddle boarding. We then had prosecco time by the pool bar. In the evening we gathered on our balcony and had the wine we had been given as flood survivors. We then went down to the taverna and there was a very nice meal and I had a very filling steak there was Greek music and dancing from Steve and Tricia who also danced with the staff later. The meal had left us quite tired and went to bed about midnight.
Up about 10 and out for a nice cycle into Kardamena and towards the airport. I came back and played on Sharkey with Susan, Russ, Tricia etc. I then did some paddleboarding as it was a really quiet day. I cycled into Kardamena and hacked my portal and then watched the presentation of prizes. In the evening we went into Kardamena and pub crawled through all the main bars. I went into the chilli bar and bought a round of shots for everyone and then we got another one free. We drank jager grenades and danced in the square. Then we went back to the bar that did dog’s bollocks and had a few more of those.
text I got up about 10 a.m. and started packing then realised it was only 10 a.m. and went back to bed again for a little while. I was up and out and paid my bill by 12 and we are on the coach at 12:30 I didn't feel too bad. The coach trip was short and they got us on the plane really quickly it did then take off slightly early and we got back to London quickly. I then Caught the Tube with Nigel to Stepney Green.
