We had this trip booked before our honeymoon as we were not going to have a honeymoon we were just going to go to Ibiza for a kind of belated honeymoon but no said my husband to be (back then). If we are getting married then we having a honeymoon. Who was I to argue i was after all going abroad twice in a month.
Woo Hoo I say! Crete for a honeymoon come home and then three weeks later Ibiza. So we have all heard the stories about Ibiza but when we went we were not 18 so we thought we would just have ‘a quiet one’. Who was i kidding do i not know myself and my husband at all, there was a good chance we were going to enjoy all that Ibiza had to offer. After all we weren’t 18 anymore but we weren’t 90 either.
Why not have a blow out holiday, life has always been slightly stressful since we were both young we had not had the best lives but we always consider ourselves extremely lucky to be happy and healthy with a wonderful family. Anyway, we flew from Doncaster, even got a day flight and arrived in San Antonio Bay around two-ish. I remember as the rugby was on was on, Challenge Cup Final, Hull FC verses St Helen’s and Chris had to go to see it. We literally got the plane then the transfer to The Fiesta Milord Hotel, checked in then found our way to the nearest bar with Sky Sports so Chris could watch the game. He is sports mad like any other man in the world probably. By the time we got to the bar I was so tired i curled up in a ball and had a nap while Chris watched the Rugby. When the game finished Chris told me the barmaid came over and asked if i was ok, apparently they thought i was drunk and passed out. No just having a nap. LOL! Later that day we went back to the hotel and cleaned up. I felt fine after a nap, a shower and something to eat. Our holiday was half board so we had breakfast and dinner in with the trip, turned out this was a good option as we were very rarely in the hotel during the day, we usually got the boat across the bay to San Antonio.
Although all-inclusive was an option we had not really been offered until around day 4 and for an extra 10 euros a day each would have been a really good addition. Oh well, maybe next time we come. The boat left the bay right outside out hotel every half hour or so right through the day and night. We got to the boat around 7 it was a beautiful night and he sun was just starting to go down, we wanted to go and have a look round the main strip were all the holiday programmes were shot as it looked wild down there and we had to see if the stories were real life or simply edited for TV.
The answer to that question no! they were wild! The first thing we saw were the locals racing horses trotting down the front near the boats, what a sight. These horses were beautiful, so proud and well-kept by the look of them.
We watched them for a while and took lots of photos and videos of the races it was like the trotting races I have seen at some of the horse fairs at home. Beautiful i love that they still have a lot of culture even in the madness of the main clubbing areas.
we moved on to the main strip area and were immediately accosted by one of the bar reps (the first of many bar reps) I will give you free shots, free bottles, free fish bowls, Woah! steady we have literally just got off the boat at least let us get a feel of the place before you get us hammered. lol! We declined the first half-dozen reps as we made our way down the strip, around halfway down we decided it was time to take the plunge and make our way to a bar. We spotted one just ahead that looked busy so thought we would try that one. Obviously we were stopped by the bar rep and let her ‘talk us into going into her bar with the promise of free shots. I can’t remember what it was called as there were so many bars there it would be impossible to remember them all unless you went in the same one every night and who does that!
Several bars later and several cocktails and shots later it was time to go and get the boat back home. I was very drunk but as you know if you read my blog regularly we don’t do it often and we were on holiday so the odd blowout is ok by us. Next day the night before was a bit hazy but I am always safe with Chris, i did have a hangover but after a couple of painkillers and a good breakfast i was fine, as was Chris.
We headed to the beach from breakfast for a rest and a frolic in the bay on the li-lows we brought from the UK with us. Good idea, we got them from pound shop and they were quite expensive at the hotel. Laid on the beach at either San Antonio Bay or San Antonio most days and spent most nights doing the same.
We did go back to the bar we watched the rugby in on the first day as this was literally around the corner from the hotel so on the nights we could not be bothered to go on the boat we just walked up the street and then returned to the hotel to watch the nightly shows which were playing just below our room.
This was great as if we wanted we could stay down stairs or go to out room and watch them from the balcony, (I hate balconies, i am so scared of heights so i just sit in the doorway) great if i was tired then Chris could sit and watch them and i could go to bed.
The rest of the holiday was pretty much the same every day and every night It sounds monotonous but it was far from that it was relaxing and wild at the same time and a great time was had by both of us……
Until next time
