Discovering Kefalonia

I get butterflies whenever I scroll and look through my holiday photos. I treasure holidays away with Jon so much, they really are such a joy and I wish we could go away on more! One of our favourite holiday things to do is always go on a day tour of the place we are staying in. Luckily for us the island had one and it was called 'Discovering Kefalonia' and we jumped at the chance. The weather was perfect for my new lemon dress which is actually an old Primark number! I adore fruit prints in the summer and this is my second lemon-printed dress (eBay had one and I snapped it up for a juicy price!). I had a bit of an embarrassing situation with it though.


I was trying it on and it fit great but I couldn't for the life of me get it off. I stood in my room for ages trying to wriggle out of it. I tried everything and as a last resort I had to get a pair of scissors and physically cut myself out of it! Yikes! So I had to install a zipper- which worked out for the best really- and now it's even better!


The island tour involved a trip to the nunnery, wine tasting, the Melissani Cave (with an undergound, bright blue lake), the Drogarati Cave and lunch in Argostoli, a beautiful city in which we saw a beautiful turtle right next to the harbour!

Another little thing I just have to share with you is my latest obsession: my new satchel from Cath Kidston. This has become my favourite day bag, which I chose mainly for the size, as well as the amazing print. Carrying around a DSLR camera and extra lenses does have its disadvantages- small bags simply don't cut it. Carrying around such precious cargo and other things too ie: bottle of water, scarf, cardigan, lip balm, suncream and maps on our day out called for a bigger bag than my much-loved (but in this case, useless) owl camera case. Since I've got home it's been my work bag too- and it passed the ultimate bag test; my laptop fits in it perfectly! Yay!
