Week 6 – A holiday from our holiday

Week 6

A Holiday from our Holiday

We are now in Rhodes (after another night crossing on the ferry), our apartment is perfect and ideally situated to visit the sights in the North of the Island.

We’ve cycled approximately 80 miles this week, the roads are in a state of disrepair which is a reflection of the economy in Greece. The staff at our apartment have commented that although they work all week they have no money at the end of the week.

Our routine is very chilled, cycle in the mornings and sunbathe by the pool/beach in the afternoon. Evenings are spent reading or drinking in the bar.

The reduced cycling and improved diet has meant we have put on a couple of much needed pounds on this week. Gary was looking a little gaunt, I could see his ribs and my new sports bra no longer fits. We need to watch this when we set off again and make sure we eat more.

We had a rebate from British Gas in the week so back on track with the budget.

as always if you want to read more about our week please go to the main diaries page.

Love and Kisses Gary and Ginette
