In 2015, Siggy and I were in Kos and we took a boat trip over to the neighbouring island of Nisyros.According to Greek myth, the island was formed when the sea-god Poseidon cut off a part of Kos and threw it onto a giant called Polybotes during a fight.
In 2013 we went to Skaithos – like many others before us, not for the first or last time. We went on ‘around the island’ and ‘Mamma Mia’ boat trips from Skiathos Town on a boat called the Kalypso.
Next stop on our 5-day jaunt down memory lane and the islands of Greece is Chania in Crete. Chania is the second largest city in Crete and was the capital of the island before it moved to Heraklion in 1971.
Given that we’re not going on holiday to Greece (or probably anywhere overseas) this year, I’ve been reminiscing about places we have been in the past, and I’ve decided to do a top five run-down over the course of the next few days.

I gave the original Xbox 360 version of Burnout Paradise a glowing five-star review. Having played the remastered version of this open-world racer for about a week now on my PS4 Pro, my high opinion of this game has not changed at all.
This audiobook is like a 10 hour 50 minute podcast with lots of new jingles, puns, Bowie-based reminiscences and the usual mix of comedy and pathos that has come to define Dr Buckle’s podcasts.
So here we are a month or so later since my first post about my particular circumstances, minor #firstworldproblem gripes about working from home and the various nuances of the COVID-19 lockdown. It’s almost July! Crazy.
Every cloud has a silver lining and if the COVID-19 lockdown means I get to watch more films then great.
