Last week I was back on the beautiful Karpathos! Together with 3 friends, we enjoyed a delicious sun, sea, and cocktails. In this photo blog, I will take you on a trip. Enjoy!
With a night flight, we went from Cologne to Karpathos, not an ideal time, but a lot cheaper! The flight was incredibly empty and so we could all sleep well, fine! Once we arrived at Karpathos we went for breakfast at En Plo, got some groceries and we unpacked our suitcases. Then it was time for the beach: Arkassa. We have been in the sea all the time with the four of us and after that, we eat at Glaros. We have spent the evening on the veranda with a drink and a game.
On our 2nd day I took the girls to Achata in the hope that it would be windless and we could blow up the Unicorn and that was possible! Lots of bobbing, laughing and of course Instagram-worthy photos taken ;). On Achata it was getting hotter and so we went towards home. On the way, we bought some ice cream and then we saw that En Plo was already having Happy Hour, which we could not skip, so we ended up drinking cocktails in Pigadia. In the evening we ate at Kipos and we ended the evening in the Stema bar :).
On Wednesday it was time for a boat trip. We chose for the trip of Sofia my Love, I did this once before with Vincent and we really liked it From Pigadia we first went to Vasilis Paradise where we then also had a meal. Then on to Apella where we could also get on the beach for a while. At 15.00 it was time to go slowly towards Pigadia again. We stopped also in the bay of Kyra Panagia where we could jump off the boat and swim. Also in the evening, we went to Pigadia. We had a nice dinner at Mesogios and after that, we (how could it be otherwise) drank cocktails at Anoi and in the meantime played 30 Seconds :). It was again a nice day!
Thursday was blowing properly. We had plans to go to Arkassa, but there was too much seaweed and so we went to Akri beach (between the airport and Arkassa). The bay was beautiful in a bowl and it was nice and quiet! Around 3 o’clock we drove to Pigadia to take a look at the Island Pool Bar. It’s a very nice place! It is really relaxed and I was amazed at how nice and quiet it was. In the evening we went to Ammoopi to drink the famous Ouzo milkshake and then to eat at the Four Seasons. We closed the evening with a game (and a drink ) on the veranda.
Friday we wanted to take it easy because we had plans to go out in the evening. Just to the beach and then chilling at home so that I could sleep. Unfortunately, it was blowing so hard that sitting on the beach wasn’t nice and so we quickly ended up at home. I went to sleep for a while, but unfortunately, the afternoon ended with banging headaches and abdominal pain (no idea where that came from..). After some medicine, I could happily go out for dinner with the girls. We went to Mesogios because he had made Spanakopita especially for us, delicious! Then it was time for cocktails and the game 30Seconds at En Plo. Around half past one, I went home and the girls went to Akri bar and then to the Heaven for a party!
This morning the girls were in bed at 6 o’clock in the morning! It was a very quiet Saturday Denise was already awake early and so we took a dive together. Kelly and Fleur have been sleeping till 2:30 and so we did not really do anything in the afternoon. We have sat quietly on the porch and after that, we have been eating in Finiki. We ended our last ‘real’ evening at Stema, very nice!
On our last day, we went to Diakoftis (it was so busy there!) Where we took a dive for the last time. After that, it was time to clean up the house. We ended the week with a dinner at Poseidon and afterward, we sat on the porch. Then go to bed early, because at 06.30 the alarm goes again!
