I'm back! I'm back! I'm back!

I'm back! I'm back! I'm back!

And OMG do I have a lot of lj reading and catching up to do! 

Kalymnos was AWESOME!  Totally rate it!  

Granted our travelling was a bit antisocial and tiring (outbound-arrive at Kos at 0100, wait for a ferry to Kaly at 0645 and nap rest of day; return-get a 1600 ferry, to wait at a cafe for 6 hours then leave Kos at 0230, arrive London 0430 and sleep rest of day) but sooooo completely worth it.  

We even considered extending our stay there but there were no seats available at all.  :-P  Ah well, next year we know to book it for TWO weeks.  At least!
 
I tell you what tho', it's worth taking that ferry away from an airport hub - as it mean you avoid all those chav-y twatty British holidaymakers on Kos.  Phew.  Kaly basically has climbers and older/more experienced Greek holidayers.  Brilliant!  And the best way around the island is by scooter.  So the boys had a lark - while I sat pillion and had to go with the flow (and tight turns!).  Everything was cheap too.  Lotsa food! Lotsa beer!

The climbing was so good!  A bit painful at times (our banged up knees, cuts and scratches all over are testament to that) but very cool.  We got some good pics (not many of me as I tend to be the trailing paparazzo) so I will post some as soon as I've transferred them over to the computer.

Our hotel room had an amazing view of the opposite island (Telendos), which cast the most amazing sunsets.  The poolside bar was sweet, and the beach was right down from the pool.  Who could ask for more!  We even basically had a private beach to ourselves on the Wednesday as we got a watertaxi to drop us off for some deep water solo-ing (climb, fall into water, repeat) - I decided to be the sane one tho' and took the photos of the boys!

Picpost to come later this week!  I'm trawling through work emails AND lj posts today so it may take me a while to catch up to y'all.

To round up - Had a fabbo time!  Missed ya!  Nice to be back in own bed!

Sammy - 'Flight of the Conchords' is finally playing over here on BBC.  *snoppy dance*

It was so cool!

You'll get some eye-treats later.

J'adohre PPG! I was at the climbing shop (what sport/hobby isn't complete without shopping?!) and saw a PPG buff and me wants it (something like this: http://www.buffwear.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/16_29/products_id/1118, but themed to each of the Girls)! Unfortunately, they only had Blossom and Bubbles - and I'm a Buttercup gal!

I'm still holding out for a PPG lunchbox, but Matt hasn't caved yet.

Awww... I'm jealous of me too! And the people who are still there!
Kaly: 19-26 oC, sunny, sunny sunny!
London: 9-16 oC, forecasted showers and grey clouds

And don't forget, you're back home with warmer winter/spring weather than I'm getting here!

Ok, yeah, I'd still choose me! *apologetic smile* I'm still chuffed about Kaly!

Awww, glad you had a nice time! My ex-boyfriend was a climber and we always talked about taking an adventurous vacation, but we never got around to it. :( I still want to one of these days though.

How cool is that hotel hey! We're definitely going back to it and request the same room. The view was amazing.

Heck, the whole island was amazing. I'm a big fan of Greece! It was our first trip and everything was just perfect. Good food! Cheap beer! Friendly locals! Sticky rock!
