Evening all, remember that bastard thing that happened to me back on Wednesday well things only got worse from then on. Thursday was fine, had a day resting my ankle, however all went wrong Friday.
We had a thunderstorm which was fairly heavy and managed to fill up our back patio to near door level but it stopped and it started subsiding, I got an appointment at the doctors, got a "fit to fly letter" & went back to the hotel.
Before going back to the room we went to the hotel bar for lunch & a quick drink, however within half hour what followed was the worst thunderstorm I have ever seen, the pool overflowed there was water pouring down the stairs back up to the rooms (this was an outside hotel if you get what I mean by that) and down the ramp to the pool, the water turned muddy, the pool overflowed and the water started getting inside to the lobby
To cut a long story short when my Godfather went back up to our room & opened the door water poured out, the room had filled up 14-18 inches high and we lost some of possesions (although not as much as we thought we would).
It ruined what had been a rather relaxing holiday (the twisted ankle was a bummer but all in all didn't spoil it for me that much considering) and really scared the shit out of me.
To top it all off on Saturday we ended up queing for 1 and a half hours just to get our baggaged sorted at the airport and to pass through passport control (there was one bloke checking the passports of around 3000 people & no I'm not exagirating (sp)) with that and the day before of the three days I was told to rest my ankle I got a day and a half which can't have done it any good.
In all honesty the whole thing has left me a little upset, a holiday I had been so looking forward to and had started off so well was ruined, it's a holiday I'll never forget but for not the right reasons.
I feel so sorry for the people of Kefalonia too, the damage cause by the storm is going to cost them hundreds of thousands of pounds, seems someone really has it in for Greece at the mo what with all the bollocks they've had in the last 12 months.
Apologies for my long post, it's been a horrible few days
