Ibiza – July 2019
Cala Llonga Ibiza – about 5 days ago
If I could go on one holiday again it would be______
To Cala Longa in Ibiza – I visited there last July and it was such a relaxing holiday and I really enjoyed it.
Where would yours be?
If I won £1,000 right now I would_____
I would save the majority of it as I am currently saving for a house but I would spend a little and maybe go away for a night or too and explore somewhere new in the UK.
What would do?
So this week I was lucky to have the week off work. I didn’t have much planed but I knew I needed a break so I book a week of annual leave. Work has been really busy this last month and I knew it was only likely to get busier so it was the perfect time to escape and have some me time. I was thinking of going away but instead decided to stay in the UK and go on a few little road trips but also just take some time to relax and try to figure out what my next step was going to be.
I did have an interview towards the start of the week which I was quite nervous about so I was glad to get it out of the way early on in the week. I am one of those people who get ridiculously nervous for an interview so I thought this interview would help to give me a bit more experience. The job was for a similar job to what I do know just in a different location. The interview went really well but I didn’t really get any significant vibes about the position and the way it was portrayed to me made me realise that If I was offered it I would decline it this time because it just didn’t feel right. I am glad that I went however because it has given me a little bit more confidence with interviews and has helped me to figure out what it is I am looking for in employment.
It has been nice to take this week as it comes and not have to rush around every day to make sure everything is done. I have been able to fully relax and enjoy my week off. Luckily my boyfriend had the same week off so we have been able to spend a lot more time together that what we usually do which has been really nice.
I am back to work on Monday which at this very moment I am not looking forward to but I know by the time Monday is here I will be raring to go. I will be back full of energy ready to tackle the week ahead.
This time last year I was looking forward to booking a holiday, I had no idea where I was going to go but I knew that I fancied going somewhere I hadn’t visited before. I ended up going to Croatia and stayed in Sibenik. I hadn’t heard much about Sibenik apart from that Game of Thrones had been filmed there. The photos looked amazing so I was really excited to go.
The hotel that I said at was amazing I didn’t realise when I booked but it turned out that there was 5 hotels joined together and there was also a campsite in the middle of the resort. There was lots of swimming pools and restaurants available to use. The resort was right on the beach and I spent most of the days there chilling on the beach.
The sea was the clearest bluest blue I have ever seen and I couldn’t look at it without feeling like I wanted to jump in.
I explored Sibenik town which was really interesting, there was loads of small alleys and cute little shops to look around. I went to see if I recognised any parts from Game of Thrones which I did.
I went on a boat trip to Krka National Park which was really enjoyable. The boat ride was a lot of fun and the Krka National Park was breath taking. I got to go in the river and see the amazing waterfalls. I have never been anywhere quite like this but the views were amazing.
Croatia was one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been too and I would definitely like to go again sometime in the near future.
A week ago I returned from my summer holiday to Ibiza so I am starting to feel a little bit of the holiday blues this week as I have gone back to work. I stayed in a place called Cala Llonga which had a beautiful bay with a lovely beach. There was a couple of shops and restaurants but nothing to crazy like San Antonio. I have stayed in San Antonio before and really enjoyed it but this time I was looking for somewhere a little quieter so I could relax and just soak up the sunshine.
The hotel I stayed at had everything I needed and I couldn’t of asked for any more. The hotel was so close to the beach that I could just go between the pool and sea all day. The sea was so clear that we even spotted a squid … I could have watched him for hours peacefully going about his day.
I really had a great time and I didn’t want to come home. I managed to unwind from work and I even began to reassess my life. A lot of my energy goes into my current employment and by having time away from work it made me realise that maybe I should put some of that energy into something else. Not that I want to try less hard at work but sometimes not everything in life has to focus on work or how good you are doing in your job. It gave me the opportunity to realise that eventually I would even like to work for myself.
Even though we had chosen to go to a quieter part of Ibiza we still decided to go out on one of the nights and we went to Ushuaia and went to see David Guetta. Ushuaia is probably one of my favourite places to go see someone play in Ibiza just because it is outside so it doesn’t seem as busy and there is just generally a really nice vibe there. I have seen David Guetta once before, a few years ago at Creamfields festival and he was amazing and he didn’t let us down this time either as he was equally as good.
We visited Es Cana and went to their Hippie Market which was amazing, I loved browsing though all of the jewellery, hippie blankets, t-shirts and trying the different foods and drinks. It was really enjoyable although we did make sure we went there as early as we could because by mid-day you would not be wanting to walking around the market because it gets so hot and is very busy.
I also went on a boat trip in San Antonio so that I could see the famous sunset and we also got a chance to explore San Antonio. This gave me a chance to show my boyfriend the places in San Antonio that I had visited a few years ago. The sunset in San Antonio is amazing and is something that I would recommend if you are visiting Ibiza.
I had a really great time in Cala Llonga and would definitely go back there again as we could relax when we wanted to but we were also close enough if we wanted to go on any trips or days out. The highlight for me was just playing in the sea and getting to see the squid.
