Welcome back, loves!
As I’m sure you’ll know by now, if you’ve read my last few posts or follow me on Instagram, at the end of June, Matt and I went on our first holiday together to Kos.
We spent the whole week just relaxing; playing in the pool, eating all of the food, drinking cocktails and just enjoying being together. We totally lost sense of what time or even which day it was and that was one of the best things – we were so chilled out!
We fell into our little routine of how our days were spent and it was just perfect. Matt has been so busy with work it was lovely to see him unwind and relax. We got to really enjoy our quality time – something I’m so grateful for. We’re very good at making quality time a priority in our relationship on a day-to-day basis – we’re together pretty much every night of the week and are always doing fun things – but sometimes by the time we’re home from work and had dinner together, it’s time to go to sleep before we know it. In Kos there was no rushing about, and that was a dream! The weather was great, if I’m being honest it was sometimes too hot, but we had 13 huge pools to choose from for a dip, so we could definitely cope with that!
As the World Cup was on during our holiday we spent part of most nights watching the games, which was so fun. Matt is a huge football fan and I actually really enjoy it too. There were people staying at our hotel of all different nationalities so that made it even more exciting! Our favourite member of staff at the hotel (Sarah – she was so sweet!) worked at the bar right next to where the World Cup was showing, so we had to go see her!
One evening we went into Kardamena and had a little wander through the town – little being the word as there really isn’t much there! It was a cute, quaint little area and very picturesque. Matt finally got to try a Mythos on this night which he was very excited about; he loved it! I really wish I had taken more photos of Kardamena but I wasn’t feeling great – unfortunately I was unwell on and off for three days of the holiday. (I never get ill so this happening whilst on holiday was the worst luck EVER)! Nevertheless it didn’t ruin anything – you can lay on a sun lounger no matter how you feel, right?! Also, if I don’t sing his praises enough, Matt was an absolute gem and looked after me so well. Have I mentioned how much I bloody love him?!
I really miss our laid-back routine and spending all of our time together so much, although I fully appreciated it when we were there and enjoyed every second! I also really miss eating feta cheese every day (LOL), I don’t know how but it truly tastes better in Greece!
I am so grateful to my wonderful boyfriend for making Kos the best holiday! We love travelling together and exploring new places; I am so excited for all our future trips holidays to come. We are really hoping to go to the Caribbean next year, Cuba is very high on his list and Punta Cana is very high on mine… so we’ll probably be heading to Cuba! Making memories of any kind with him is my favourite thing in the world, and exploring the world together is just a bonus ❤️ (side note: we’re heading to Belfast at the end of this month and hoping to squeeze in a city break in Madrid later this year… any tips/recommendations would be so helpful and appreciated)!
I’d love to share some of our holiday photos with you!
