Kos: Day One

So it started at 6:30am on Thursday 18th July. We only live about 10 minutes away from the airport which is so handy when travelling coz I've known people to be travelling for hours to get to the airport to then have a long haul flight ( my worse nightmare!)

After being searched at security (at least one person in my family gets searched every time, we must look dodgy or something!) and a Boots meal deal bought for the plane we found out that our flight was delayed due to technical faults with the plane.

Some educational reading whilst waiting for more info about our gate.


 Finally on the plane! I'm not one for plane journeys, feeling cramped and dehydrated makes me feel awful, but it was about 3 1/2 hours so wasn't too bad. 

I should probably introduce everyone. Going from the back row from the left it's Shannon, Me, Emily, Kamila and Aby (She's gonna hate me for putting this photo up!).

Once we got there we realised how tiny the airport is. There's only on baggage reclaim belt and the whole room was about the size of a school hall. Luckily mine came pretty quickly and we didn't have to wait long for the coach to come and take us to the hotel. Once we got there the reps came up to our rooms and spoke to us about the events they were holding that week, we didn't do them all thank God, because it was actually quite expensive and seemed like we'd be pretty tired and dead by the end of the week. After that we popped down to the beach for a moonlit stroll then got food and drink from the supermarket, as we were self-catering. We didn't get the air con, which meant we left the balcony doors open, resulting in a ton of insect bites I wasn't expecting. All in all I was pretty tired but happy that I was finally there and couldn't wait to get into the pool!

Advice:
  1. Use insect repellent. Otherwise you will get bitten and it won't look pretty.
  2. Bring loads of stuff to do on the plane. They're the worst places to be if you have nothing to do!
  3. Don't feel pressured by the reps to buy all the events they do. In hindsight it's cheaper to do it your own way, depending on what they're offering. Also we found out that most of the places they take you to are owned by the company they work for and the drinks were more expensive than we were expecting. 


Thanks for reading!
