It maybe age, the realisation of the years going too quick or the influence of Lifesshort, but these days I’ll never say no to a new experience, experiment much more with food and drink and don’t worry too much about work, money.. Well anything really.
So my latest holiday destination – Egypt. A beautiful location on the Red Sea in South Sinai, complete with stunning views of the mountains. A lovely relaxing resort with not a great deal to do .During the week I mastered snorkelling despite having a flat out panic the first day, and went without fail every day for the rest of the week – what a wonderful world it is underwater - spoke a bit of Arabic, smoked shisha, ate Lebanese food, Samak Harrah and tagine, drank Egyptian wine (not recommended), Jamesons (ok I know that’s not Egyptian but they’d run out of Jack) local tea (delicious) bartered with the locals, watched England see off France in a bar packed with both sets of supporters (hehe), sang a Karaoke duet with a complete stranger and generally had a fabulous week.
Ibiza’s being planned for next year – because I’ve never been and am now finally past the “I’m too old” hurdle. I’m going, and I’ll love every minute.
Bring it on ! :)
