I’m not entirely sure why but it’s taken me so long but I’m finally going to share all about our Greek adventure to Kos at the beginning of the Summer! Three whole months have already passed since we got back so the all those finer details are now a distant memory, but better late than never, hey?
I think the main reason I haven’t shared this post sooner is because I got home from our week in the sunshine feeling a little deflated to be completely honest. Travelling with little ones is always going to be a bit stressful and I totally get that and I experienced it first hand last year when we took Bella to Ibiza for a week. But this time it was different. It was bloody hard work at times.
We made a big mistake by not taking the stroller with us. Bella of course decided that this week would be the perfect time to become a complete Mama’s girl and refuse to walk anywhere by herself because who in their right mind would want to do that when they could be glued to their Mother’s hip AT ALL TIMES?! My darling daughter refused to sit and eat a single thing unless she was sat on my lap which meant pretty much every meal I ate was eaten one handed. It was almost like having a newborn again… one that weighed over two stone. Oh and she was totally that kid that screamed the whole aeroplane down on the way home due to being an overtired mess thanks to a delayed late evening flight. I was also the Mum that full on ugly cried on said flight due to pure desperation for my child to stop effing screaming.
ALAS toddler tantrums aside we did in fact have a very lovely time with Josh’s parents and his sister and her family. We swam, we ate wonderful food and we explored to our hearts content. All with fantastic company and glorious sunshine. We laughed ALOT and consumed plenty of cocktails. I even read a whole book which when your a Mother, is basically a luxury in itself!
Greece was of course absolutely beautiful, I had visited twice previously as a child but I never fully appreciated just how pretty it is. I’m sure we’ll definitely return to Greece again for more family holidays in the future. I’m sure in years to come I won’t even remember those stressful moments, I’ll just look back at these photos with fond memories of our Greek adventures together.
