I must admit we got very lucky with our holiday apartment. We had booked a 7day discounted family accomodation package and although we knew the apartment was right on the beach I was sure for the discount price we would get one of the units without a good view. Imagine my surprise when on arriving we got told we were on the 32nd floor with views of both the beach and inland
being so high up was a little challenging for YD but we quickly set boundaries as in ‘no taking anything out onto the balcony’ and such like. With the height also came a lack of traffic noise and all we heard most of the time was the noise of the waves.
We had fun at all three themeparks but it was quite overwhelming for YD so we were kept busy with her although a few meltdowns were unavoidable. She also wanted to go shopping but so many new shops, different money etc also was confusing for her. I think we all came home a little more tired than when we went. She did enjoy herself overall so thats all that counts and is already planning to go back again – or so she says.
We managed to have wonderfully sunny weather the whole time we were there.
I managed two mornings on the beach, but due to time constraints switched to swimming the remaining mornings. I would do several laps freestyle of the small indoor pool YD joined me in that pool until she discovered the spa pools and from then on she would have a spa while I did my laps. Pampered young miss!! 🙂
I managed to meet up with my sister and niece the first night we were there and see family friends M, R, and L on the Saturday and also catch up for a coffee on Monday with my IBC internet friend P – we could have talked for hours, but we had left MD looking after YD and P also neede to get back to her kids.
We definitely achieved what we wanted to on this trip but next time I think I need a little less hectic holiday.
