Bit of a cooler day due to it being cloudy. This day was a proper relaxing day, reading and sleeping was pretty much all I did. Like I said it was cooler but still warm enough to nap on a sun lounger.
It was nice to have the space and time to think, I thought a lot, about other people and about myself and my life. It was a luxury to have the time.
DAY 6 VALENTINES DAY
I really like Valentine's Day. Always have. I love romance and grand gestures and small secret gestures and in jokes and all that romantic bollocks.
I love it.
I think life is too short to hold back. I've always been one to send friends valentines cards, I like the fuss. So what if its commercial. If I ran the world there would be a valentines every month.
So what was it like spending valentines alone in another country?
Pretty great actually, you see, I'm a great date, an even better one when I'm taking myself out.
I work up and opened a card one of my friends had given me to take on holiday with me. Love her loads, I do have great people.
Clearly I'd chosen a hotel after my own heart because they made a huge fuss over valentines, big glittering hearts everywhere and heart shaped balloons. The tables where covered in Cupid shaped confetti and the staff where all dressed up. For breakfast I had my usual coffee this time accompanied by a heat shaped pastry and a rose.
Then I took myself off to the beach, the weather was back to being roasting again so I spent my morning stretched out in the sun, reading and listening to music.then lunch by the sea with cocktails before shopping. I had a few bits I wanted to pick up, the classic tacky souvenir type things. I thought being Valentine's Day it was only right to treat myself to a few things, a Chanel lipstick a new handbag and a tattoo. Yeah I got a tattoo. I wanted a permanent souvenir of my holiday I had a few designs saved to my photos me that I'd liked for ages, one was a queen of hearts symbol, been valentines I thought it was fitting so I did it.
I love it btw. After tattoo time I found a shady spot for some more reading. I really enjoy reading, I vow to make more time for it when I'm back at home. I was late back to the hotel but had to go to the wifi zone to find out my collection time. 3:40 am Monday morning. Ouch.
I spent the first part of my evening washing sand out of all mŷ clothes and the second watching a carnival type show at my hotel before taking my tipsy self back to my room to tidy up and shower in prep for my last day.
I was so sad to be leaving. Leaving the sunshine, the freedom and the constant flow of sangria. Saying that I missed the people back home, a few in particular.
It was an amazing adventure. I'm surprised how content I can feel in a place that is totally new.
