Bank holiday weekend

Bank holiday weekend

We’ve just come back from a lovely sunshine filled long weekend in the Costa Del Sol. Just for info, me and M are creatures of habit – and I mean big style. We love to try new things, but if we find somewhere we love, we go back to the same place – why fix something that isn’t broken, right?

So this is our 8th time back to the same place since 2013. On our first trip here, we booked only 48hours for we were due to fly! The flight only takes 3 hours so it’s great for long weekend, and as we are now so familiar with the area, we feel relaxed from the minute we arrive.

This time round, we had amazing weather at 28 degrees and spent the days sunbathing, eating and drinking!


Where it all began…

Let me introduce us, I’m N – I’m just your average girl who likes to go on holiday as much as possible, whilst working full time (the struggle is real with only 24 days holiday per year – plus restrictions on when I am able to take them!). I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Carribean, and Mexico has stolen my heart. To date I’ve been 3 times (twice to the Riu Tequila) and I just love it – the  white sandy beaches, the turquoise sea and the amazing food.

M is my other half, he also works full time and also has a passion for holidays. He is the ultimate Sun God, he just has to look near the sun to get a tan that would take me a month to achieve. He could lie out in the sun from sunrise to sunset if I let him! He’s managed to see some amazing places in his life, including; Kenya, Maldives and Sri Lanka, so although I didn’t get to these places with him, we’ll still be including some of his memories within the blog.

Our very first holiday together was to the Riu Tequila in Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2011. We booked it last minute and decided to go for a week. We went in August so it was super hot (which suited M down to a T), we had an amazing time and this is where our love of going on holiday together began.
