A couple weeks back I came home from the most amazing holiday I’ve had in around 4 years. Accompanied by my amazing other half, Tom and his family I can confirm I’m suffering with the most horrible holiday blues.
After a long 3 hour wait for our rental car, Tom, Kate, Tom and I (I know how confusing) all set off to the villa to meet the rest of the family awaiting our arrival. It was beautiful! Our very own private pool, BBQ and only a short distance from a little secluded pebble beach, I couldn’t have been more excited.
It was a unanimous decision that we would explore a close by beach, about a 10 minute drive away. The beach was beautiful however the sea was freezing and all Tom wanted to do was go for a swim – let it be noted that I hate the sea and ignored him the entire day. After a few hours of sun (and sunburn) we all made our way to the hut and had a beer. When we finally got back to the villa, it was abundantly clear how much my skin had missed the sun – I looked like a patchy lobster. It was safe to assume that shade was my new best friend for the next couple days.
After giving my skin a rest from the Spanish heat, Tom, Kate, Tom and I decided to adventure out of the villa and explore a near by town. As we arrived, it was clear that the rules of the road weren’t exactly similar to that of the UK and it took us more than a while to find where to park. As we slowly walked along the coast front we stopped and had a bite to eat. We ordered some Spanish tapas to which I tried deep friend calamari for the first time in my life (I don’t like it).
Closer to the end of our holiday we visited another little beach which was in the opposite direction. It was a small sandy beach that thankfully had shade.
I won’t even discuss our last day as that turned out to be a disaster! I experienced my first holiday with a boyfriend and it couldn’t have gone better. Although we didn’t get to experience Barcelona City, we’ve already planned a mini break to do so.
I’ll update you guys when I go!
