So I have 15 minutes left to go before I leave the office.  

Tomorrow and Friday I am stuck in 'The Office'-like hell of a residential 2-day conference with managers of the local government department I work at.  Some hotel in south London.  2 days!!!  I am going to struggle to keep myself looking interested in all the crap that goes on at these.  I went to one 4 years ago, and wasn't happy to be roped into this one too!

Lucky me, I have a half-hour slot for an equalities presentation at the end of the first day.  I have 8 slides, and am going to make it short and fast.  So we can hit the bar early!  

So that's the crappy bit.  

The AWESOME bit is that on Saturday afternoon/evening, we are off to Kalymnos, Greece!  (earlier post) Yay!  Here's to odd travel hours (ETA Kos 0230h), multiple changes (Athens-Kos-Kalymnos), and different transportation (plane-ferry-scooter) - culminating in a week of climbing and lounging by the poolside bar and on the beach!

I don't think I'll get a chance to check up on LJ while I'm at this work hell, or before I go (have to rush from Purgatory to a 30th party on Friday night), so... *waves*  

Catch ya when I'm back!

It's been long-awaited! Haven't had a proper holiday since February and I am soooo looking forward to some proper summer sun.

I just hope the travel goes smoothly as this is the first time to Greece and the more complicated of journeys!

I will have LOADS to catch up on lj - your posts! - when I get back.

Oooh, just found out that the conference hotel has a indoor pool. I think I will be there to wake myself up on the Fri morning.

You're welcome! Take lots of pics, too. :)

I haven't taken a real vacation in 2 years! :( Next year, I'm definitely taking one. Don't know where I'm going yet. It's either Florida (family trip), London (on my own!), or the San Diego Comic Con.

Yes, there will be many Alex-related posts in that week. :-P

That's a nice way to wake up.

London = couch for you :-) That's if you make it over here by end of '08! (current plan)

Will take heaps of pics! Wish I had money for more camera paraphenalia, ie filters etc.

I may try and find an internet cafe on the island and let you know how it is all going.

I hope you enjoy yourself on holiday Cor, you deserve it! I'm looking forward to reading all about it when you get back.

Aww, have fun! I am so jealous, Greece is my dream vacation! Take lots of pics, you're going to have a ton of fun!

Camera is locked and loaded! (yeah, ok that doesn't really apply when it's a digital SLR but you get the meaning! lol)

First trip to Greece - very very very excited! Altho' the language has me stumped. I have the phrasebook, but honestly, when okhee [phonetically] is 'no' and 'thanks' is efkhareesto, howineck am I supposed to remember that?!

I'm probably going to find myself attempting pidgen Spanish (seems to be my natural revert-to foreign language, even when I'm in France or Italy).

Holy shit, Cor, you sure are adventurous! I hope you get through the conference with some amount of sanity and I know you'll have a blast in Greece (*shudders at rock climbing*).

Thanks L! I just made it through sane! Copius amounts of vodka&soda, red wine, and irish whisky helped on the first night. It meant I just dozed through Day 2.

Packing now!!!! 2 pairs of 'kinis are all I need right?!?!

Vacations are a must! I've been dying for this one!
