Another fabulous night's sleep. Woke up naturally and headed for the gym. Haven’t been here for a couple of days and I feel the need. Back is more bearable so some pilates on the foam roller is in order. Gym was busy this morning and quite a few die hard gym junkies in there too. Great to see!
Today is Galley Market Lunch. Where the kitchen has various cooking stations and we can ...
It's another lovely day today with the sun high in the sky and temperatures over 27 degrees. I'm usually vary rarely ill but out of all the 52 weeks in the year my immune system decides to shut down between the 6th and 14th of October, our first week of proper holiday since the beginning of the year.. So, after starting with a tooth infection which lead to antibiotics 3 times a day for 5 days, now my left eye started to blow up and hurt right in ...
... so time to sit at a little bar. My GPS enjoys a well earned ice cream and I sit down to a frosty glass of the local beer. The monasteries of Meteora have been around for many many years and can will wait another day. The next day we are amazed at how fast the hotel empties after breakfast. Actually breakfast is scheduled until 10 but at 9.30 we are about the last to leave to head to the monasteries. The forecast is for hot and getting hotter so everyone is hitting the monisteries early, ...
... I realised that I had not changed my phone clock and that I was at the airport an hour earlier - so I had got up at 1/4 to 5 and not 6. Bugger it. Never mind I had no time issues so sat and read paper.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud omnitel
the sun. Hs spectacularly set on the horizon. It's the only time I have seen people applauding GOD.
Breakfast was god event, hotel was lean nice ppool, helpful staff. I would recommend.
