So, I very cheekily asked the admin of this turquoise tinted travel blog if I might steal a bit of space on it and guest post. She said of course but all the better if my content were “beach-y, resort-y or tropical related”. Fair enough I suppose.
But that got me thinking, it’s been awhile since I’ve gone anywhere “beach-y, resort-y or tropical related”. Well, I hit the Spanish sands of Galicia in August. And as beach-ily wondrous as that trip was, it was in a rented house and obviously north of the tropics. As far as the tropics go, it’s been far too long since (Thailand and Laos way back in ’09) since I went on any equatorial adventuring. As with respect to living la vida resort-y, it’s been far too long.
Maybe it’s time I contemplated a quickie visit to a resort. I’ve got a few city breaks lined up (New York and Paris) but those are somewhat work related and, quite honestly, going from London to another conurbation doesn’t always add up to relaxation – something that could really do me a world of good. Perhaps looking into some Caribbean holidays is in order? I reckon the last time I was down round there was more than five years ago. Too long! The idea of lounging on a white (or even pink!) sand beach with of course a turquoise sky and sea would be so appealing with little to do but soak up some sun and leave my cares behind if only for a few days.
