I've had a very busy week at QVC since returning from my Menorcan break with the young uns but have managed to find a few minutes to reminisce over the holiday photos. Just thought I'd share some with you.
This was our first time to Menorca and I have to say it far exceeded my expectations! What with both of the kids going on to further education and growing up so fast I wanted us to have a few days away together, just the three musketeers! It was fan bloomin tastic!
I had arranged for transfers from the airpost to the hotel on the Santo Tomas resort but nothing could have prepared me for the surprising size of our 'transport'. I was told there would be car to take us but when we got there it was an entire coach!! Just for the three of us!!
We found this most amusing! Probably incredibly wasteful too when you think about it but I did feel a lot safer on a big coach than I did in a taxi we took on a day out whilst here..hair raising to say the least!
You can see the beautiful view through the coach window. We were right on the beach. It couldn't have been a better location!
The weather was fab, of course, as you can see here.
There was live music on a couple of the nights which I simply loved listening to as we sat on the terrace overlooking the pool.
Just look at the pool at nightime! Something about the blue that just so calming, isn't there?
Tom isn't as keen and wanted to see some of the island so we took some time go and visit the port of Mao for a few hours. It was great, so pretty and clean. We looked around the open air markets and got a lovely leather cuff for Tom which was handmade by a friendly man with a fab smile and really long dreadlocks.
We always like to go into the supermarkets to seek out funny 'lost in translation' names on products. Sure enough I found one worthy of posting here. I give you…. Bimbo Baps!
We had some great walks along the bridle path which runs alongside the beach. There are two photos I can't show from one of our walks though! There was a naked man smiling happily as he stood in he sunshine chatting with friends! It certainly gave us a giggle and I pretended o take a pic of Tom & Chrissie but actually I zoomed in and got a pic of Mr Naked!! Well, it was part of our holiday and will be funny to look back on later..it is already!!
So, immaturity aside, it was a lovely holiday with two fabulous young adults ( well, Chrissie is near enough an adult now) who just happen to my wonderful children!
I used hypnotherapy prior to flying to help me cope with my nerves but there was one thing on the flight that did disturb me slightly,look closely..
We did have rather a heavy landing though, perhaps that was why? Hee hee.
I hope you've had a great summer so far. I would love to hear how you've been spending yours.
Hope to hear from you soon! Lots of love,
