Day one Travelling

The trip to Symi is a bit of a slog.

We were collected by taxi at 6am to get us to Gatwick for a 7am check in.  We live an awkward distance from the airport. For one week it is cheaper to drive and pay for longterm parking. For two weeks it works out cheaper to get a taxi.

Anyway we arrived at 7am and were through checkin, security and passport control in about 20min. The flight with Enter Air was on time but the plane was very basic, full and with the most uncomfortable seats I have evert had on a flight. There is more comfort and space on Southeastern  Railways, North Kent commuter lines!

Anyway we arrived on time in Rhodes and got dropped of at the same cafe as last year, so food and a cold beer were in order.

The boat boarded on time and sailed off into the sunset towards Symi.

By the time Symi town came into view it was pitch dark, quickly off the boat and up to the apartments. A run to the supermarket for some much needed supplies and it was time for a drink at The Sunrise and then home to bed.

The civic centre is 60/70s brutalist. Took a quick walk around the building while on Tuesday night beer run.
