My Holiday in Lesvos

As some of you will know, my partner Jayne and I enjoyed a week on the beautiful Greek island of Lesvos recently. As a break from all the writing stuff, I thought I'd share a few of my photos with you...

We stayed in a place called Anaxos, on the north coast of the island. Our accommodation was the Hotel Anaxos (a good name, as it's the only hotel in Anaxos!). Here's a picture of the hotel across the swimming pool...

Anaxos is a quiet place, which suited us fine. One of the livelier moments was the hotel's Greek Night. Here's the bouzouki player getting warmed up...

And this is Jayne waiting for her supper to be served...

Anaxos is famous for its stunning sunsets, and there were several of those during our stay. Here's one picture I was particularly pleased with...

And here's another. Don't forget to put on your sunglasses.

I was amused by this sticker we saw attached to a wheelie bin in the resort. I'm sure their English is a lot better than my Greek, mind.

This is the Einai, a seafront taverna where we enjoyed several delicious meals. I particularly recommend the swordfish steak!

Finally, here's a lunch of mixed starters we enjoyed one day in the nearby town of Petra. I can almost taste those prawns now...

Well, I hope you've enjoyed seeing my holiday photos. If you've never been to Greece, I highly recommend it for a relaxing break. The climate is warm, the food excellent, the scenery stunning, and the people are genuinely welcoming towards visitors.

Ev Haristo!
