The Story Behind The Photo #6

I was a bit stuck this time when it came to picking a photo. I have so many from our trips to places like London and Manchester but I've shared so many of them already, I also don't want all of them to just be of me and George because there are other people in my life, but I don't know who would want to be on my blog and who wouldn't! I have some really funny photos even from when I was back in school that I would love to share but I'm really conscious that people on those photos might be a bit like woah why are you putting a photo of me on your blog, so I've been struggling a bit recently with this! I thought I would pick one from the last time I went abroad, 2011, yep 6 years ago now, because it was a lovely holiday and I have some really pretty pictures from that time. 
I chose a picture of the Leper Island Spinalonga that we went to on a day trip to during our two week holiday to Greece (I went with my mum, dad and brother). At the time I probably didn't appreciate it as much as I should have, I remember it being absolutely boiling hot and I think that kind of put me in a bit of a mood. I just wanted to be in the pool all the time! I've since read a bit about the island and looking back on the photos we took, it is pretty amazing and I really would love to get the chance to go back one day. Last year when I was working because I was going up to full time I had persuaded George that we should go to Greece this summer and we would have if things had gone differently, and we'd have definitely made a trip to Spinalonga. Now when I look at the picture, I genuinely think how beautiful is it? Maybe it's just me but I think it's such a good photo. Spinalonga is basically a small island in East Crete and it's known as the Leper Island because thats where Lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece were quarantined until 1957. Lepers are people who suffered with Leprosy which is a long term infection, thats about all I know but still it's a really interesting place and I definitely think I'd take it all in a bit more if I was to go again. 

I'm in desperate need of a holiday abroad, all I've wanted to do the last few months is hop on a place and spend a few weeks just by a pool. It's been so long and I just don't think you can beat a relaxing holiday abroad. It's so needed. Maybe next year. We've been saying for years oh next year we'll finally go abroad and we just never have but I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

If we do get to go to Crete anytime soon, I'll definitely be checking out Rental Center Crete for easy car hire. I'd love to rent a car out for the day and just explore, and see what we find! They make the process so simple and it's incredible affordable!

Have you ever been to Greece? Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
