Remember, we'd never taken daughter abroad before, but had holidayed in the UK in Country Cottages which served us well until last year when, after a week of rain, husband said he was going abroad next time, so I said he had to book it. Well, the boy did well. Knowing my high standards and requirements he did his research and found us just the thing.
If you find other people's holiday snaps boring, just look at this one and then skip the rest - it sums up the holiday pretty well:
Now, for family and frends who may be interested, the rest of the story:
We stayed at the Sol Gavilanes hotel on the beach at Cala Santa Galdanes:
The hotel was beautiful and the food was amazing (even better because I didn't have to cook it!). Izzy, being her usual Miss Independent self, helped herself to buffet at breakfast and dinner and seemed so grown up doing so. The hotel had a lovely pool and the beach was soft white sand and shallow waters so Izzy spent most of the time in the water. This was my foray into the water:
We hired a car for a week and took trips to Mahon, Cuitadella and Binibeca as well as going to the top of El Torro and visiting some ancient sites:
We took Izzy to a horse show one night to see the fabulous Menorcan Stallions:
There was lots of ice cream........
......... and a lot of laughter.
It was good to be together, the three of us, without any pressures, worries, DIY or jobs to do. I haven't laughed so much in ages. I think husband laughed the most at this point in the holiday:
In fact, the holiday was so good I told husband that he could book next year's holiday as well!
He he he!
