April, 2017: Rhodes

There’s not much to tell about this trip; this one was a real vacation! All inclusive, luxury hotel, beautiful Greek island. The lesson that we learnt from this holiday was how a break abroad that is early in the year and self-indulgent and focused on relaxation gave us an incredible boost for the rest of the year. During this trip, I re-discovered running and jump-started my annual “return to fitness” and that was sustained until October, including reaching personal bests for 5K sprints.

We stayed in the Atlantica Imperial Resort and Spa, in Kolympia. Guilty of being absolute tourists, we only ventured outside our accommodation for street running. The caipirinhas and food were amazing. “Come with me if you want to live!”: We watched all the Terminator movies!
