Recently attended a friends wedding in Skiathos, a lovely lovely island just of the coast of mainland Greece, 25 minutes flying time from Athens. We flew from Manchester, the drive from Glasgow to Manchester included a stop off at 'The Trafford Centre', we shopped all day and i never bought 1 single thing, bollocks, i did try on a rather fetching Paul Smith jacket, which i may purchase when my weight drops a bit. The Flight to Athens went Tech, new plane rquired and a 6 hour delay, good start to the day, not. Athens must be the most tagged city with Graffiti i have ever seen, and not one bit of it was any good, all pretty dire, infact pretty much all rubbish. The pic below is Nick (Elton John lookalike), hes a great chappy and kept giving me pelters all week, me and Mrs Fat Buddha were seen whizzing round Skiathos all week on the big red Quad bike, 2 big fatties on the machine. For anyone with a mind to visit Skiathos, there's some info n the Island HERE .
