Greeks just wanna have fun

I've been on holiday to Greece. I hate how 'past tense' that is. It was fantastic. It was my second time in Greece, the first was 2 years when I spent 3 months studying in Athens. We stopped by Athens again this time and it was exactly like I remember except it was about 25°C hotter. I don't think I've ever perspired so much. After two nights in a really cool hotel in the centre of Athens [Click here for pictures of cool hotel] we got a ferry to the island of Naxos where I did my PADI open water diver certification. Why do I have to pick such expensive hobbies?! I blame Finding Nemo. From Naxos we went to Mykonos (classy party island), Ios (studenty party island) and finally Crete (bit too close to The Inbetweeners movie than I would have liked). 
There is a lot to love about Greece. The weather, the food, the people, the history, the ruins, partying until 8am... Greeks are so laid back, everything can be done tomorrow. Let's just sit here and drink coffee for 4 hours. Mine's an Espresso Freddo. I love that. I miss that.
