The Greek Holiday: Postcards from Kos
Some moments are so beautiful you want to capture them and save them for the future, store them in a see-through bottle like a tiny model ship. We’ve had many of those during this holiday: sunny moments of happiness that we carefully press into our memories, to be admired on cold winter days.
The velvet season has already passed – the days are warm, but the strong winds, typical for the islands, mean you need a jacket as soon as the warming sun has disappeared behind the mountains. We don’t really mind, however, as we have still managed to swim every day. The other day we spent a whole hour in the sea, swimming out to a faraway rock and only turning back when our feet got tangled in seaweed.
Most of our time here has been spent by the hotel’s infinity pool, even more beautiful in real life than in photos. During the hottest time of the day, and in the evenings, we sit in a shade on our balcony, taking in the view opening up in front of us: the pool, the sea, and the Greek sky, all bluer than blue.
It’s indescribably beautiful – we could not think of a better way to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
