Darrell Sorts Out Our Next Greek Odyssey

It’s that cold and grey time of year when Darrell starts feeling the call of the hot sun on his back, sand between his toes and a Greek souvlaki on his plate, so yesterday afternoon he demanded total silence after deciding it would be an opportune time  to search for our next Greek Odyssey.
Well, to be honest Nigel and I took ourselves off for a walk followed by a chai latte as we know exactly what Darrell is like when he is looking for an odyssey.
And after two hours we thought it would probably be safe to return home ……..
……. to a jubliant but still concentrating Darrell, who was just double checking that he had crossed all the i’s and dotted all the t’s before finally pressing the confirm button and securing a week self catering dans Crete for us all.
Darrell said that Crete had just sounded soooooo impossibly romantic and promised much ……… and as a Greek island we have yet to explore the pleasures of, it would have looked rude not to book!  What is he like?  He then disappeared into his room to check to see if he would need to order a new pair of budgie smugglers while he was at it!  Bless him, he had worked so hard, yet again, to find us the perfect holiday who am I to begrudge him his beach wear of choice, no matter how tight?

True dedication on Darrell's part and the reward will be another heavenly Greek the thought of Crete; super dreaming for grey winter days...Love, Dianne

Well done Darrell. Crete with Theseus and the Minotaur as part of its mythology.
The locals are Cretans, not cretins. Careful with this!
