Hiya! Guess who’s back? Back again (for the millionth time.) If you hadn’t guessed yet, its me. After seeing That Pommie Girl making its reappearance, I decided to look through old blog posts from back in 2012 – cringing hell. But it gave me the kicking I needed.
Anyway, back to why we’re here. July 2018, me and two work gals took a trip to Greece. Little place called Kos. I can 100% say this is the cutest little town I’ve been to, so small and doesn’t really have much but soooooo lovely to chill in.
The hotel we stayed at was called Island Resorts Maya Hotel. Which was 2-3 small hotels/apartments linked as one, our hotel backed onto the beach and we were lucky enough to have a room that backed on to the beach, our balcony looking over the sea. This was absolute bliss, until 5am when you couldn’t sleep because the sound of the sea was slightly overpowering and super windy… the most bitter sweet feeling in the world. This is a 3* hotel, but very clean and I had no problems, it was a standard hotel and what you get for is definitely what you pay for (which I’m okay with!)
You know when you’re on holiday and you find the place, the place you want to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at? Yep. We found that, it was super cute! Had the sweetest staff and we made a new best friend with the waitress – who we actually looked forward to saying good morning to. It even got so bad that we’d walk in and they knew what me and Sinead wanted. Water to share, coke, diet coke, 2 ham and cheese toasties (for me..) and then whatever Sinead wanted. They had egg chairs looking over the docks, let me tell you it was the most relaxed I had ever felt.
After chilling at the breakfast place, which annoyingly I can’t remember the name of, we went down to Beach Bar Starlight, where we spent the day doing absolutely nothing. The hardest part was walking to and from the sea on the boiling hot sand without blistering your feet. I think I spent a good 8 hours a day laying on a 4 poster sunbed, reapplying sun cream, and drinking my body weight in water. We also met a Mel B look-a-like and she melted our hearts with her love story – the reason she stayed in Kos is because she met her Fiance out there! Super super suuuper cute. Giving all us tragic true love believers some hope it does exist ❤
In the evening, the highlights of my night were eating proper Hummous (!!!!) and also going to ‘The Bands’ – shout out to the owner of this bar, the best little Indie bar I’ve ever been in to. Was in my absolute element, playing music from The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters and many many more! It was amazing, the smallest place but I couldn’t fault it.
If you’re after a chilled holiday, this is probably better for couples or anyone who’s not bothered about going crazy at night time. I enjoyed myself and would definitely go back in a heartbeat. The locals are lovely, the tourists are friendly and the staff are there to enjoy the day with you! Its cheap and clean, perfect for some blogging pictures (oops, shout out to Sinead and Chloe for being my personal photographers. IOU)
Bye lovelies x
