Our Family Holiday in Crete!

When you mention the word “summer” to me, my eyes get that extra sparkle which is missing for most of the year. I love sun, sunshine, beaches, sea and five years living in Australia were giving me all that. Well, now living in London, is a different story, but we try to have at least one beach holiday every year and also one winter/ ski holiday.

This year we went to Crete (Makrigialos). We love Greek Islands, not just the landscape, sea, beaches, but also the food and people. Even though we went at the beginning of June, the weather was great, quite hot and the sea was not too cold for the beginning of summer.

Isabelle loved swimming in the sea. This was the first holiday she actually spend so much time in the sea, I was amazed. On one hand not really, as it reminded me of me when I was little. Lately, I have realised so many things she does or likes doing, once I used to do when a little girl. My husband says she definitely takes more in personality after me than him. The following picture is just an example.

Always happy when playing with sand

Absolutely love these pink bushes, will have to find out if I could grow one here in London

I love this shot taken by my husband

Our villa was in a newly built Grapevine complex, just a few minutes from the sea.

Isabelle ate a lot of ice cream and ice lollies

Beautiful sunset, looking out from one of the restaurant we went to

I love seafood, could have some every day.

    I just love the pic of Isabelle asleep on your Hubby, and the one of her in the pool. PS: the pink plant is Bouganvillea, and it comes in gorgeous shades of red, orange, and purple too – it grows in NZ (where I'm from) so should grow easily here too!! xxx
