We have our last fabulous breakfast at the Albatros. I would definitely recommend this small family run hotel. It has the friendliness of a family hotel but with very high standards and excellent customer service. We have a final stroll around the marina before returning for our taxi This has been a wonderful holiday. Even … Continue reading Goodbye Sivota!
This really is turning out to be a beach holiday - well on the days we had sunshine anyway. We aren't sit on the beach all day people but with the lack of excursions (I had really wanted to go to Albania and also a trip to Corfu or one of the Sivotan islands) we … Continue reading More Beaches and our Last Night in Sivota

The walk down a steep path brings us … Continue reading Exploring the Beaches and up to Perdika Village

We awake to another grey and overcast day. No rain as of yet - but we know that its coming! We head down for breakfast which again is a great feast. The Danes have their maps spread out across the tables planning their drive to Meteora - obviously much braver than I! Today we decide … Continue reading More rain and a bus trip to Igoumenitsa

It was raining - not spitting but heavily raining! We needed to go back to the travel agency … Continue reading And the Gods Were Angry
We've been looking forward to this trip for some time. I'd set my sights in Sivota after seeing an aerial photograph of Sivota and its surrounding islands a few years ago. It takes a lot to drag me away from the islands but this is a trip I've really been looking forward to. I had … Continue reading Journey to Sivota
