What Really Happens In Kavos

11 Sep

On the week of September 2nd 2013, I embarked on my second holiday this summer, I visited the beautiful island of Corfu, Greece. Unfortunately, I did not visit the beautiful, peaceful, clear blue sea parts. I went to the well known, party town, south of the island. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past year you would not of seen the Channel 4 documentary based on this town, called ‘What Happens In Kavos.’ Kavos is well known for its late night parties, easy and I mean easy lads and girls and of course the chance of getting an STI more than a natural tan. I had my doubts when booking the holiday but with it only costing me £229 for seven days, eight nights, I couldn’t complain and started packing my 15kg suitcase with my best friend. 

Kavos to me was different to the other party holidays (Club 18-30), I’ve been to Magaluf and Ibiza so I was well clued up on what to expect but Kavos shocked me, Firstly it’s a lot smaller than the other places, less bars and less clubs, but this was an advantage. When an event was on you knew that is where every young person would be. We didn’t think this and missed the ‘Paint Party’ cause it was our first night and we thought it was just some greek man trying to sell us a ticket to something no one would be, but turned out it was the main event for the week! 

For the sex side of the holiday, there was none! but not because i’m dog ugly or hard to get, it was just their wasn’t anyone who interested me or I found attractive, most the guys seemed to off just left high school and be really young or really old! How people get an STI is a question! 

The drinks are so cheap and tasteful, the well known ‘Headfucker’ was a magic mixture in a cup! I lived off them all week, it’s 9 spirits in one drink topped with a small amount of juice, the thought of nine spirits could make anyone stomach turn but they were really tasty and got me drunk so quickly, and they were only 5euros, If my club in Chester sold them, they’d be at least £15! All the drinks are cheap and laughing gas was only 3euros! For the whole week I only spent £500, that was self catering and we stayed in twice due to my friend having a hangover from hell, but out of Magaluf and Ibiza it was the cheapest destination. 

To end the week, we went to the Full Moon Party which is a small version of the Thailand Beach, Full Moon Party. This included fireworks, drinks in small beach buckets, bbq and a great DJ. This was the perfect end to the holiday and made me so happy, dancing in the sea and sand with perfect strangers and your best friend, what more could a girl want? We got a t-shirt which everyone wore! 

If you’re looking at a Summer Holiday for 2014, I’d def recommend Kavos over Magaluf and Ibiza this place is perfect if your a boy and girl in a relationship as their isn’t much temptation and its small.

KAVOS!

If you’ve been reading my other posts you’ll understand that my ‘Summer Holiday’ this year wasn’t as good as I assumed it would be. My friend wanted to come to Ibiza with us, but at the time she didn’t have the funds for it, but now she does so we decided to book a holiday to MALIA, SAYYY UHHH AHH MALIA! for the first week in September as a final goodbye to a good summer.

Yesterday me and my friend, Hollie, took a trip to a shopping park and went to ‘Thomas Cook’ we knew the hotel we wanted, we even knew the price! Thomas Cook you let us down! epic fails! We first went in and got given an middle aged woman as soon as we said ‘Club 18-30’ she said she’d put us with somebody else more our age, which is understandable, but she put us with a girl our age, but the older woman would of been more help.

The woman we had didn’t understand that we weren’t going to pay over £250! We knew the holidays were cheaper as we looked online, she kept offering us £300 holidays, me and hollie were on a budget and we weren’t going to pay more than £250. She couldn’t even find the hotel we wanted, when I found it online, on their website, the morning before we went and this morning as well!  We got a quote from her, we wanted to shop around at other travel agents before making a final decision.  We read the quote and she put, extra baggage, extra flight meals etc on the quote! We’re not idiots.

We then went into Thomson, we were welcomed really nicely and even had a friendly discussion with the woman on the front desk, we were given somebody our age again and she found cheaper quotes for Malia. She then suggested if we’re looking for a cheap holiday that Kavos is much nicer and cheaper and has a better reputation than Malia, she showed us some pictures, the prices and we even all laughed and then me and Hollie decided last minute to book Kavos. The girl that served us, was really friendly and helpful, she even convinced Hollie to purchase travel insurance, I knew I could  get some online for a fiver!

So on the 2nd September 2013 I am going to Kavos! Staying in the Alexander Hotel on the beach front, if anybody has ever been to Kavos or stayed in that hotel please, please comment with some tips! I’m really excited! eeeep!
