Summer holiday

Friday, 27 July 2012

I am out in portugal at the moment with my family and mine and my sisters boyfriends. So far it has been really lovely. A chance to relax, enjoy some nice food (although eating out as a vegetarian is hard!) and explore new places. We are staying in out own villa with a pool, which is needed because it is so hot in the middle of the day! So far we have eaten out a few times, wandered round the old town, been to the beach and booked some trips for next week. Here are few photos from the holiday so far:

Bit of a windy day! (dress - h+m)

Oh and it was my birthday! :D Got my presents on monday morning before we flew out here and my family and boyfriend have been so generous! Will do a post on the things i got when i get back probably, there were some really great presents.
Having a lazy day today. Will watch the olympic opening ceremony tonight whilst having an early tea. Its strange how much later everything is out here. Hoping people are enjoying the nice weather back home too.



  1. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Dead jealous looks like you are having an amazing time, I went to Portugal a few years ago so I know how amazing it was! The weather back home is surprisingly sunny so hopefully it will stick by the time you return!
