TO TAVIRA WE GO!

Well, we went and are back now. "We" is Emma (flatmate and good friend) and myself and we had a very relaxing time. It was also Country 13, yay!

Etch has a timeshare in a flat in Tavira - located in Portugal for geographically challenged readers - and let us use some . . . share of his time. We flew from Stansted to Faro, the nearest airport, on Thursday night after work. This was to ensure maximum time in the sun from Friday on!

The weather was fantastic and the reason this post is going to be so short is because this is all we did:

Thursday
Arrive at flat by midnight. Sleep.

Friday
Wake up early, get some breakfast and lunch supplies from on-site supermarket. Eat. Get into bikini. Lie down by pool. Snooze. Dip in pool. Lunch. Lie in sun. Snooze. Make lasagne in flat. Eat. Chat. Sleep.


Saturday
Wake up early. Eat. Get into bikini. Lie down by pool. Snooze. Dip in pool. Lunch. Lie in sun. Snooze. Walk 20 mins into town at about 4pm. Walk around. Drink sangria. Go to cosy restaurant for dinner. Drink sangria. Walk back to resort. Chat. Watch TV. Sleep.


Sunday
Wake up early. Eat. Head to beach with packed lunch. Back to resort's on-site restaurant for very delicious dinner. Drink sangria. Back to flat. TV. Sleep.

Monday
Wake up early. Eat. Lie down by pool. Snooze. Dip in pool. Pack up. Taxi to airport. Leave!

It was a great break but we were both also looking forward to coming back to move into our new house! We have a lovely place in Tooting Bec (only 2 miles from old place) with Sara and Etch!
