I'm not a good flier. Never have been. But usually I have someone to hold my hand on take off. Not this time! So some pink champagne was required pre flight. Cost me £16 for a glass!!!!! 😮
But I made it! This was sunrise on my first morning. Quiet and peaceful.
My room was lovely!
The hotel was huge!!!!
This is a selfie I posted on FB on my 3rd morning. I'd spent a couple of days by the pool just people watching. There were folks of all shapes and sizes. All confident in their own bodies. I took this on impulse (actually I took about 30 shots and they were all similar, so it wasn't a fluke!) I realised that I'm in ok shape for a woman of my age and experience. I'm too hard on myself. I have grey hair. I have wobbly bits. I'm 53 and had 3 kids. My body reflects this and I'm happy with that.
Every night before dinner I took a selfie then I went to the dining room with a book. The first night I ate dinner in 20 mins. By the final night I took over an hour.
Yes, going on holiday by myself was challenging. But I spent a lot of time simply reflecting on life and making plans for the future. It made me realise I can do anything, be anything I want. And that was empowering 😎
