Last year Phil bought his dad tickets to watch the golf up north near his home town, leaving me with no plans for over a week in the middle of July. When this realisation hit me this year, I quite quickly decided, fuck this, and after discussions with my pals, Eileen and Toni, we booked the most amazing resort in Corfu, Greece. Yes, that photo above IS OUR RESORT. Beach, tick. Pool, tick. Loungers and cocktails. BIG FUCKING TICK. We’ve booked three nights in mid July, hoping for hot, hot sunshine. Suffice to say, Phil was left a tad miffed that he was missing out on a beach resort holiday. But we still have North America coming… more on that later…
The best part about this resort is that it is ADULTS ONLY. So many beach holidays I’ve been on in July/August leave you surrounded by children. I love kids, but not when I want to sip my cocktail, read my book or get my boobs out so as to avoid tan lines.
The plan of attack now is to eat salads and hit the gym, so when I come to put on my new bathing suit, it looks as good as bloody possible.
What’s to do in Corfu? Well apart from getting a tan and reading a couple of books, we have inquired around some diving and snorkelling excursions. We’ll also have a wander around the town and test out the restaurants. But mostly I think we’re all in agreement on relaxing by the pool or on the beach. Even though we all travel to new spots every couple of months, it’s very rare to have an actual break and a holiday where you relax. Most of the time you’re out walking about and sight seeing – which I love – but sometimes you just want to do nothing and actually switch off. After our most recent adventure together, I envisage the weekend to just be a load of laughs and future stories to tell.
