Next week I am in Greece, Rhodes Old Town to be exact.
This will be a bit of a proper holiday as just myself and my wife. And before I have a load of people saying "don't post you are on holiday as you will be burgled", the house is not going to be empty, duh! It is, for a change, just myself and my wife going on holiday.
I am going to try and have more of an actual holiday. I am not going to be off line, obviously. I would never want the mountain of email and crap when I get back after a week of being off line. But I will be off line for many hours, much of the day, at a time.
It is warm in Greece, but a tad less so this time of year (I hope). The hotel where we are staying is nice, by the look of it, with air conditioning and internet if I need. A perfect place to read more of my Ada book.
My wife missed the cruise as she was not well, and the insurance for that is paying for us to have a nice little holiday now she is feeling better. One of the rare occasions I actually benefit from insurance.
I am actually going to try and relax a bit, but that means my staff, and even some of my customers, not hassling me for the week. We'll see how that goes!
It looks like it even has a piano - like being in cabin 14000 on the Jade all over again :-)
P.S. Only just spotted the picture of an ancient Roman torture/execution device over the piano. How odd.
P.P.S. Sandra says the weather forecast is 30°C all week, help me!
P.P.P.S. The flight was fine, the taxi was waiting, the villa is nice - see video
