Seven days in heaven – this is how I’d like to describe my holiday in Zante. It was the most intense and activity-packed vacation I’d had since 2006. No lying idly on the sunbed, no time to spare. Guess what, this is how it goes when you tag along your rents! They just couldn’t sit down for more than 10 mins, which by all means shouldn’t be a bad thing. No sooner had we checked in at the hotel than we found ourselves on one of the famous boat tours.
So determined they were to squeeze every bit of juice out of our holiday. At first, we went around Cameo Island for turtle spotting. Unfortunately, the turtle season ends exactly in September, therefore it was quite difficult to find them around. When we finally managed to spot one, the poor creature was completely surrounded by boats. Next, we went to swim around the Keri Caves – I’d never seen such crystal clear water in my life! At the end, the Capitan took us to the Caretta Island to see the place where the sea turtles lay eggs.
Zante is magical, no one can deny it. Most people of 18-30 flock at Laganas, which is the party part of the island. That’s where the clubs never close, and where you can spend the night of your life for just about £10. Honestly, this is not what I came here for, haha! My idea was to explore the island as much as possible.
I made my first attempts to shoot the Milky Way on top of the Keri Caves, and I’d driven a quad for the first time in my life (no one was injured, uff). We took an 8-hour long trip around the island (I slept through most of it) with entry to the best attractions of Zante: the Shipwreck beach, Blue Caves and Gigia Beach. Obviously, my mother’s boyfriend and my dear friend (who casually joined us for a few days) wanted to visit the banana beach for all the water sports.
I could go on and on how amazing my holiday was and how incredible Zante is, but you guys just need to go and see it for yourself!
