I love being on the beach however I’ve never been big on sunbathing all day, flipping over half way and watching the hours pass by because to me, there is so much exploring to be done and adventures to be had… Plus I fail miserably at sunbathing and had to tactically clothe myself on the evenings to cover up one burnt leg that happened one day when I fell asleep on a sun bed. I also still looked like I was wearing my bikini which was fun to cover especially through sheer sleeves… enough said?
My sister is such a water baby who happily spends hours in the sea. I’m usually much happier in the shade on a subbed reading a good book (My book of choice was Girl Boss). However this holiday I did spend a lot more time in the water than I usually would because it was such a beautiful shade of blue, so clear and a lovely temperature to swim in.
I loved the experience of swimming with turtles however I think it’s safe to say I don’t think I’ll be snorkelling again any time soon. I spent so much time trying to clear my goggles of steam and desperatley trying to get the water out whilst trying to float. I ended up with a mixture of water and sun cream in my eye so i. I rewarded myself with a (few) Rum punches..
It was my first time in the Caribbean and my first time away from home at Christmas. It was also the first time I’ve ever felt happy with what I packed and wore whilst being away, yes it was mostly black and white but I’m okay with that
