Now I'm back in action as it were, I thought I'd best post some pics of what I've been up to for the last week.

I went to Corfu with my mum, dad, sister, brother-in-law and niece. Had an absolutely fantastic time - and my sis/bro in law/niece are still out there for another week, so I haven't got the whole bunch of pics yet.

Here's a fair selection that include the following & many more:

Looks like you had a hell of a time Chris! :D

Looking great as always. ;)

Your neice is so sweet! :jmp: You just wanna squeeze her! :hug:

Random: I have no idea why, but you remind me of Stan Shunpike in this picture (http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/RivendellHylia/CorfuHoliday/MeSitting.jpg). :vlol:

I want one of those kitties! :mad:

Very good pics, Rivendell! Did you enjoy well?

Totally, it was a great week! Lots of sun, lots of swimming, relaxing - and the horse riding was brilliant. I've never really been that into horses, I've always been really weary and cautious around them. But they were so much fun to ride!

Riding is an exciting experience, I don't even like horses that much, but after I've ridden all I can think of is: I wanna get a horse! :p It's like they have some strange impact on my mind...

Nice to know you enjoyed! I think beaches there are much like here in PT (by the pics)! At least you get sun on your vacations

That's normal having that attitude with horses, but having a horse is expensive!

My parents can afford one, it's just that they say they're too dangerous. And then I'm totally misfit for such a large and care needing pet.

They really need hours of attention and care! But in the end it's nice!

I don't have in my house. I have a friend that 3 at home (including one latino, his most expensive) and I saw him many times taking care pof his horses!

You obviously didn't like Sidari. :p
And you got to go horse-riding, lucky you.

:jmp: Great pictures, I glanced through all of them!

Hmm.. your sister and you have same kind of expressions. I saw the resemblance instantly, same smile! I think it comes from your mum.. *analyzes* :p And I got to say I like your eyebrows, they're always like "v".. Random, I know! :D

:vlol: Funnily enough I don't think anyone's ever said that to me before. Like my bro and sis, yep - but I've never been compared to either of my parents! Oh, and Lora - post your Santorini pics please! :D


You obviously didn't like Sidari. :p


Terrible place, it was so beautiful it made my head hurt :p

It's hard to believe how blue the sea can be! :eek:

Tell me about it! I ran up one of the cliff tops and peered down - it was like left to right, up and down pure paradise. The pictures really don't do it justice - it was a stunning sight, I was actually laughing with some sort of awe!

Well I am Greek and I love this island. Come back to Greece next year Chris, there are lots of lovely places to see. And all of you. I recommend it. Any Greek words that you've learned?
