We have just returned from 3 days in Ibiza. It was an experience.

I took 2 cameras and managed to snap only about 40 (grainy and wobbly) photographs; sat in our hot tub so long that both my spray tan and nail varnish came off; had so much more fun than I expected I would; read TWO WHOLE BOOKS and really can’t wait to go back.

I missed Elfie in a way I can’t describe but had an absolute ball spending time just me and Will.

We stayed at this lovely villa near Talamanca beach in Ibiza town which had a  hot tub rather than a pool which suited us perfectly. In our short trip we squeezed in DC10 and then on to Cocoon at Amnesia, then the next day a pool party where there were so many perfectly bronzed and beautiful people that I got a headache. Being lucky enough to be top-tier VIP (there are two levels of VIP. Oh yeah) at Amnesia gave us access to the most beautiful rooftop bar, where we were not so lucky to pay 20 Euros for a drink. There were five of us. This was 100 Euros a round. OMG.

We mostly ate at low-key restaurants in Ibiza town but on the last night ate at KM5 which I enjoyed, despite it apparently being incredibly passé these days.

(Courgette carpaccio – delicious)

I came away from Ibiza with around 150 mosquito bites (we counted – I even have them on the soles of my feet), from which I learned: WEAR INSECT REPELLANT. Even if you declare on the first day “you guys! I never get bitten!”. HAH, life is cruel.

In conclusion: would highly recommend, especially to people who have lots of money to burn and possibly shares in anti-mosquito lotion.

    I went to Ibiza 5 years ago. I nearly wept when I paid 17 euros for a gin and tonic in Space. Had an amazing time though and vowed to return when I was rich. Still waiting….

      It’s insane… I don’t know how they justify it! I’m obviously in the wrong business. Need to get myself a ridiculously overpriced Ibizan bar.

  2. Never been to Ibiza. Anyway, look at you, you guys look so happy. I think it’s important to remember as parents why you got together in the first place. Keep the fire burning etc. Well done!

      Absolutely – it was so lovely to get away and be just the two of us again – like you said, remind us why we got together in the first place!
