We got back home from Greece Monday, and we had a very nice time, even though Frida wasn’t feeling too well the first couple of days. She reacted to a vaccination she had received two weeks prior to our trip, and Mads and I just hadn’t thought about it until it was too late (duh…). This meant that she was quite beside herself the first few days – like completely beside herself, which was rather tough.
However, those days passed, and the rest of the time was wonderful. Also, I think Ronja enjoyed pretty much every day there, she spent as much time as possible in the swimming pool, and she was having great fun with two 8-year old girls.
We did all we could to relax, had delicious Greek dinners served by friendly waiters, went for a few walks to see the area, and took the bus when we wanted to go away a little further. Mads and I sat on the balcony in the evenings, drinking wine, talking, and reading – now how often does something like that happen? We didn’t rent a car this year as we have done previous years, but we did go on a guided one-day excursion to see “the Hidden Crete”, which took us to several beautiful places in the area around Chania.
All in all we had a wonderful time there with warm weather, great food, lots of bathing and relaxation – and then a few of those factors that you should really learn to take into account, especially when you have children. 🙂
Oh, and by the way – Frida is not a good flyer. Has nothing to do with her ears – she’s just really not a ½-a-square-meter-in-4-hours kind of child. Nope. 4 hours…
