Political waters may have been choppy for Boris Johnson in the final months of his premiership after a dramatic string of cabinet resignations.
Still, he appears to have spent his final days as prime minister making new friends in Greece, where he spent the past week with his family.
The Conservative leader was pictured smiling alongside a number of locals as he stayed with his wife Carrie, 34, near Karystos in the southern Greek island of Evia.

He is believed to be in negotiations with leading speaking firms in Washington and London.
