At the start of this year, me and my family took a trip to Cape Verde, a little African island. I had never previously been an all inclusive holiday before so I was very excited to be able to stuff my face with fancy food and drink unlimited cocktails without having to worry about the price tag (as Jessie J would appreciate).
The hotel offered many activities such as aqua fit, water sports, bingo, beach volleyball and even had live bands during the day. However, I don't think I could do a holiday like this again, as you may have gathered from previous blog posts I lack self control so I hated everything being unlimited. It resulted in me eating my weight in food every day and drinking myself silly every night. In fact one night I got so drunk that I couldn't find my hotel room sending my Mum into a bit of a frenzy.
The swim up bar was a lot of fun, and you couldn't deny the beauty of Cape Verde beaches and the quality time with your family that the resort enables. I loved being able to work on my tan during the day and then showcase it at night dressing up in my favourite outfits. I think this sort of relaxing holiday would be ideal for a 3/4 day mini break, rather than stretching it out to a week. I just can't handle living on a hotel complex for that long. It made me feel wildly catastrophic. I prefer being able to get out there and explore with little limitations holding me back. This is why I am excited for my European adventure this summer hitting Brussels, then Boom for Tomorrowland and then seeing what Italy has to offer.
