Postcards from Kos

Last month, Henry and I packed our suitcases and flew off to Kos for a week of sun, sea and endless greek salads. I wanted to round up some of my favourite photos from the week in a post - nothing too wordy but I want to have on here as it was an absolutely magic week. So blissful to get away with Hen and leave all the little worries behind and just be us two.

We stayed in the  TUI Sensimar Oceanis Beach and Spa Resort and we were absolutely blown away by it. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, the food was just incredible every day (breakfast choice was overwhelming, in the best way) and the staff did everything they could to make your stay perfect. 

Exploring Kos town - finding blue and white building hidden down cobbled paths and stumbling upon a row of restaurants along the seafront for dinner. We had gyros, greek salad, bread and black olive tapenade and squid whilst the sun set, delicious.

We day tripped to 'Paradise Beach'... and paradise just about cuts it. The beach at our hotel was pebbly, so the soft white sand at Paradise Beach was very welcome! The sea was calm and absolutely crystal clear. 

Boat trip! We knew we wanted to book a boat trip whilst we were away as our boat day in Mallorca last year was absolutely blissful. Now, I'm all for Instagram vs. reality so for a good slice of reality, we made the best of a bad situation of this trip. It was waaay too overbooked which didn't make it the most relaxing trip. However, we managed to get good seats, we got to explore the beautiful fishing village, Kalymnos and we swam in the crystal clear seas. It was the only thing we weren't impressed with TUI with but as I said, we didn't let it ruin our time at all. 

We spent our final evening having dinner at our hotel, then heading into Kos town for drinks and an explore. We wandered along the harbour as the sunset - Henry spent a lot of his childhood sailing so is one happy chappy admiring the boats. We wandered along the pretty backstreets to find the hidden gems between the tourist shops. I picked up a ring with the 'evil eye' on it - I have loved it ever since I was little and have wanted a ring of one for years. 

Our last day consisted of water polo, aqua aerobics (which we actually did everyday at our hotel!) excessive amounts of Fanta Limon and soaking up the last of the sun. We arrived back to Gatwick and a very rainy UK in the very early hours... but returned to our home together for the first time ever. 

Happy, happy holidays. x
