I didn't have octopus ...

but Janet did.We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food everywhere we ate. Our previous experiences of Greek eating out have been disappointing but most of the dishes we sampled - kleftiko, stifado, moussaka, etc - were very good. Kefalonian meat pie, a local speciality, was tasty but was ... just a meat pie. A bit like a pasty really.

So the food was good, the weather was good, the wedding went well, and the island was a typical pretty Greek island. There wasn't any night life in the place in which we stayed so the other tourists were mostly people of our age and it was very relaxing. There wasn't that much to see so if you don't like lying in the sun it's probably not worth a visit. We've seen it now and probably wouldn't go back again. (Unlike Corsica. Husband has promised we can go there again next year.)

The only thing that spoiled the holiday was something that happened late on. It was nothing horrendous but was enough to leave a nasty taste and mar my memories. But I'll get over it.

Now I'm going to put together a film of some birds. Come back later!

All sounds grand -- except the whatever you're getting over.

I ate octopus sushi once. Never, ever, again.

ah hope you get over whatever marred your holiday, not good when that happens.

Already forgetting it, thanks, anne.
