A VERY BRITISH AFFAIR

I feel like it’s a given that at some point during your euro-trip, you’ll find yourself somewhere in England. After all, the United Kingdom was part of the European Union up until it’s controversial referendum in June this year, which ultimately lead to the UK voting to leave the Union, thus Brexit was born.

We caught our transfer to our family owned hotel, which was a good 15 minute walk from the centre of Fira town. The location of our acommodation was definitely the worst of the whole trip and was not as glamorous as the others. (E.g. I tried to plug in my charger and the whole socket plus the cords came out of the wall). It did have a nice freezing cold pool to cool down in and tan by though.
