If Only London Could Be As Sunny As The Caribbean

Hvar, Croatia

leave a comment »

My spot this summer was in Hvar in Croatia. I had a lot of fun over there, and I also enjoyed the picturesque old town and narrow streets. Hvar is meant to be the posh island of Croatia and it didn’t disappoint with plenty of glamour, amazing nightclubs, huge yatchs, celebrity watching, a great atmosphere at a very reasonable price compared to similar places in Spain or Greece (e.g. Ibiza, Mykonos). Beyond the glitters, were available many simple little pleasures such as good food, a constant lavender smell, crystal clear water and friendly locals. Just a small minus from me: no sandy beaches! But it’s a minor point, nothing to prevent me from coming back of course…

Escape to Florence

Why is the weather in London so miserable when it is just glorious in Florence?! Heatwave in Italy? I’m not one to complain when I have been trying to escape pouring rain in the UK.And mamma mia, la pasta and el gelato…delicious! Top it all up with some limoncello, and I’m in heaven. Good food is a must for me when choosing a travel destination, and Italy never ever disappoints. I particularly like Napolitan food. Anything “Caprese” gets a high mark from me.

Regent’s Canal, London

A tiny ray of light and the London Eastenders take their boats out for a ride on the canal. Special parties on the water for the Queen’s diamond jubilee, with loud music and costumes.

Amazing beauty in Mexico, specially in Tulum and the nearby playa Paraiso. Gorgeous coastline, simply breathtaking.

Flights of tenths of pelicans were the most beautiful things I had seen in a while.

Riviera Maya

I was really surprised when some men started climbing up a pole in the middle of a square by the beach to then throw themselves down while turning around in a circle. One of them was making music at the top while the others were just floating in the air and gradually coming down to the ground. What an unexpected show!

Chichen Itza

The day I traveled to Chichen Itza, one of the current seven wonders of the world, temperatures were high. It was boiling! I got a sunburn on that day I believe. I didn’t have a hat and I regretted it. I’ve just bought one now though. I didn’t want to take the risk to damage my skin any further. I used to think I had Superman’s skin: undamageable, unbeatable, thick and solid. I clearly went overboard so I am taking it easy. My next holiday is next month and now I’m ready to face the sun.

I am leaving you with the image of an iguana, an animal that could be seen everywhere in Mexico, and for which I developed some kind of liking as my trip went along.

A few weeks ago I went to Mexico for a 10 day holiday, and enjoyed some fantastic sceneries and beaches. How I miss the food and white sandy beaches…Nature was amazing, with wild animals and some racoons that were not shy to say the least. While over there, I worked very hard on my tan and came back darker than ever and until this day, I have a glow that reminds me of my time on the Mexican riviera.
