Holiday To Parga : The Beer

No trip to Greece would be complete without a few pints of Mythos or Alfa. Now those of you who know me will know that I am not a massive lager fan, yes I drink the odd Pilsner or Euro beer now and then but I generally drink Ale.  Lager however is one of those drinks that I just can’t seem to get enough of when on Holiday. It’s not full of flavour nor is it particularly cheap now, but there is just something about it when it’s served up in an ice cold glass, it hits the spot and goes down a treat,  It works even better when teamed up with a Gyros Pitta. Beer in Greece usually comes in a number of different servings, these are:Draft, either 25cl or 50cl although I have had a 2litre boot before. Bottle – 330ml or 500ml – If you get...

Holiday to Parga – The beaches

Parga has a great mixture of beaches, some sand, some shingle, some quiet and others more lively. We decided to try as many as possible so here is what we thought. Parga Town beach/Krioneri – This was the beach that was right at the end of our balcony, this meant it got rather busy as it was the closest beach to the town It was predominately fine shingle with a little bit of sand. The water was clear and warm, there was a little bit of seaweed once you got a bit further out but this seemed to attract some rather large fish so it was good for snorkeling. The beach was very clean as the sunbed owners used to clean it every morning, this was probably reflected in the price for 2 beds and a brolly being 8 Euros per day which is the most expensive we came...

Holiday to Parga – The hotel and surrounding area

As it was dark when we arrived we couldn’t see much, we could however see the beach, it was literally at the end of our balcony. We could also see the lights of many Tavernas and bars stretching along and round the corner, to what we later found out was the harbour and town centre. The apartment it’s self was one of the best we have stayed in (the best if you discount the one we stayed in for Emily’s sister’s wedding where we had our own private pool, jacuzzi and free bar, mainly due to a booking cock up so they upgraded us for free). The doors you can see at the end opened up onto the balcony which overlooked the beach, we couldn’t quite believe how close it was. This meant we could hear the waves lapping the shore all night long...

Holiday to Parga – Intro

If you were wondering why my blog post’s dried up last week, it’s because I had taken a week off and popped over to Greece for a bit of Sun and some Mythos. So to make up for it im going to post a FULL report of our trip and bore you all to death with my pics, having said that I am going to break it down into a few sections over the next couple of days so you don’t get too bored We love Greece, especially the islands (we’ve “done” quite a few) unfortunately we haven’t been for a few years now…mainly because we bought and renovated a house so didn’t have the funds. This year we managed to save a few quid, despite me doing my best to spend it all on new beers. We had a list of places we wanted to go,  but in the...
