A last minute visit to the travel agents bagged me and the mrs 7 days flobbed out on a sun lounger, brilliant. Eat sleep and sunbathe was all we did, a very relaxing holiday. Skiathos is a pretty small island so my usual plan of just turning up with my cashcard backfired when I learnt there were no cashpoints in resort and the main town was a taxi ride away. Christakis who owns the self named apartments at Troulos was a nice chap and lent me a tenner for taxi fare. Skiathos is a nice place, normally fairly quiet but due to current cash climate is dead quiet, nice for us as we wanted a chilled hol but not for the local economy/businesses, hope they can ride it out OK.
