What I've always found most challenging about holidays is the 'relaxing' part. Even the idea of doing nothing makes my anxious. So pass me the medal, I conquered my fear! I've had some downtime, where I've been reading a book, and generally laying by a pool doing nothing. I have been fitting in a small bit of work. but generally this is the most chilled I have been on holiday for a long time.
I have alwasy felt that if you've spent all that money, and flown all of that way, you should do lots. But this time I really felt it would be good for me, to have a day or two of just not. Of letting my mind wander. Of reading a book.
To provide some balance, in the evening we headed off to Binifadet, a Menorcan vineyard for wine and dinner. A lovely little wander about the vines got us in the mood for some wine. Welll it did me anyhow!
Tomorrow will be a more adventurous day, so watch this space to see how well I fare!
