Kefalonia - Greece // A few holiday snaps

Kefalonia was truly beautiful. I'd been before when I was 15, but Dan chose it as our holiday destination this year after watching Captain Corelli's Mandolin. We wanted somewhere relatively quiet but not necessarily boring, so we chose to stay in a relatively small area known as Skala. We also wanted something that wasn't going to break the bank, and booked into Zephyros hotel, which I'd recommend! We've both been incredibly busy and stressed so all we really wanted was to bask lazily in the sun with our books and ice cream, and that's exactly what we did - Its been so incredibly nice to get away.

Here are a few snaps from the holiday!

Feeling 'Vogue'

 Getting to grips with my SLR and finally managed to capture some decent depth of field. Probably a fluke!

 I love abandoned, worn out looking places like this.

  14. Nice photos, Sarah. If anyone's interested,there's a new novel like Captain Corelli's Mandolin set on the island of Kefalonia that you might enjoy. There are some other great photos too.
