Holidays 2019.

Recommended Posts

Got a few things bubbling along but nothing yet booked. Trying to get the Mrs to agree to Sydney for NYE then up to the Gold Coast. Summer likely to be NYC, Dollywood then Nashville and then Vegas at some stage in autumn

Nothing probably.

brexit is taking care of that

tough shit, that’s all. 

The kids understand now I’ve explained Mounts viewpoint. They’re excited for 2024 though when they can ponce around Spain with blue passports lording it over a broken Europe.

Considering skiathos, going in about 340 days

Why not do a week in skiathos then get the ferry over to Skopolos for your second week

Boston for a wedding and then onto Toronto or Montreal still deciding which one

Toronto by a landslide. Didn’t rate Montreal at all, in fact Quebec or Ottawa are both far better than Montreal if only having a couple of days there

Not been to the others but can very much back up going to Toronto, absolutely loved it and there’s a slight chance we’ll be going back there next year.

All sounds a bit dangerous

If we did, where to stay on each island?

skiathos town 6 days, ferry over to skopolos for 7 days, ferry back to skiathos for 1 day, fly home

Last time I did that part of greece I also did Alomissos too but to be honest with you, a day trip there is enough. It's basically 4 hotels and a beach so sunbath during the day, back to hotel for food and a few beers then bed, repeat everyday, not a lot to see but if you just wanna destress and chill its good, just not for me

I preferred Skopolos to Skiathos, much more Greeek and prettier, stay in both Skiathos Town and Skopolos Town, Koukounaries is the place to be during the day with Skaithos town at night. I usually get a moped for the week so easy to get about. Skiathos town is about 10 mins from the airport

Went this year, stay clear of the tourist bars especially in Budva and use the locals bars. Brilliant place.

You're going in the right direction Cassie, smaller and less commercial each year. Before you know where you are you'll be booking  Paxos

Just had a look at Paxos

Looks great

Weather settled early September?

Where's the ferry port in Corfu?

Ferry port is in Corfu Town, flying dolphin takes about 45 mins to Gaios, then taxi to Lakka about 15 mins. It's in my top 3 Greek places, food is fantastic, people are fantastic, place is fantastic. Look up at Lakka and if you're serious I'll give you some tips of how to get there and what to do when you are there
