From sunshine to Rain

Well i am back from my vacation from Grete and from the sunshine. Now i have to catch up on what the others has done in this last week i was away, but anyways lets get started what happened on the one week in Grete.
The departure day was bit nerve wrecking like most of the time when u have to way until you should go to the airport from where you live and stuff, then there is the check-in 's and other security things to go through.

Well after all the waiting and feeling the planes taking off the ground is always nice, since those time especially on your way to vacation you know it is going to be just sunshine, 27-degree, clear sky and poolside or ocean side with cocktail on the other hand and just laying there enjoying the good life. The next day was just sunbathing and swimming in the pool which was a little small,but big enough to swim in. Our hotel was 4km from the shore so no evening swimming or great night life without spending 12 euros on cab to get back after hours.

Second day we decided to go to the new town on the shore which was like all the other new towns in Grete full of tourist stuff sales mans and stands selling expensive fake things. Only thing that were at least good there was the food, but it too was bit expensive since the Greek has been in serious debt last three to four years and now they have give up their luxury living with new cars among other things, which made them to do spike strike in airport control banning the Finnish airline from taking off for at last an hour or two.
 In the week me and my mother went to Agios Nicolaus city to swim in the ocean with a better beach, because the beach which is like closest to our is so damn small and really not good for just been on the sun and swimming. The beach was literary under the town and right next to it so every by passer can stop to stare at you on the balcony on top of the beach. Well it is not like they won't do that in the other beaches as well, but that was just not clean. After two hour swim and sunbathing we went to this small volcanic lake which was in fact a small crater from times the island was active of volcano 's

   Wednesday we went to see my mothers' friend from work who also was in vacation in Grete, but they were on the other end of the island than we so we had to take three hours bus ride to there city, where i have been before few years back with my mothers' sister and grandma.
