Menorca 2016

What a busy couple of months! There's a lot to catch up on, most importantly - my holiday!

I went to Menorca with my family, we stayed in a villa at the top of a steep hill - the views were beautiful. Walking up to the villa was hard work, especially with all the shopping! I think this was the first holiday I lost weight by the end of it - not a bad thing! We did so much swimming, walking, lounging and sunning ourselves. Also bought ourselves snorkels, so we could check out the fish off the beach. It was so much fun!

The best part of the holiday has to be spending a morning doing something I never thought I would do. I went scuba the sea. From the beach. It was...terrifying and amazing all at once. I was not very good at staying the right way up, or with staying at the right depth. Our diving instructor took me by the hand to help me stay in the right place and not be left drifting behind. I was really grateful for his help. Once I wasn't worried about rolling over/drowning/my head exploding, I was able to look around and enjoy seeing the ocean wildlife. It was so surreal, and incredible. I can't get over how bizarre and beautiful it was. There was one moment, when we heard this loud noise coming from all round us, we had no idea what it was until we saw the underside of a speedboat going overhead...eerie.

We all had a wonderful time, it was really relaxing and I'm so glad to have been able to get away!
