Week 5 of the 52 Week Blog Challenge and it’s all about looking back on some old holidays I have had.
I have been very lucky to see a bit of the world with my family and now with my wonderful husband. As a child my favourite holidays were to Blackpool! We would drive down really early in the morning (I still call that sicky feeling you get from waking up too early Blackpool Sickness) and live in a nearby Caravan Site! We loved this as kids! We spent all day travelling to Blackpool or Fleetwood and all night in the Club and Amusements at the Caravan Park – amazing times!
But today I will talk about a holiday in my adult life – my first proper holiday away! Benidorm 2013!
Jamie and I decided it was about time we went on a proper holiday away together. By this time we had been together for 4 years and only been away for weekends to place in Scotland/England. As it was our first holiday we decided to book up with our buddies Kenny and Hayley. We selected Benidorm and booked up an amazing all inclusive hotel called the Palm Beach Hotel.
On the day of travelling I was really nervous! I have never been scared of flying before so I have no idea what had come over me. I sipped water for most of the flight while the other three got stuck in about champagne haha! It was a wild first day. We jumped about the rooms, Hayley’s nails came off the wick, we had to carry each other home and Kenny was chased out of a pub haha! The other nights were just as wild and I’m so surprised we all managed to keep going day to day!
We were just daft and young though! Our days were spent visiting the local attractions such as MundoMar; Terra Mitica and Aqualandia and our nights were spent in the pubs and bars. Our favourite was ofcourse the Ibrox Bar!
I think going away with another couple was perfect for Jamie and I at the time. We were able to spend time as a group, couple and I had time with Hayley too!
It really was the best holiday with Jamie and our buddies. And now that we have little lads I’m looking forward to spending more away time with Kenny, Hayley and the boys.
