Refreshed? Errrrrr..... not quite.

Grenada was absolutely fantastic. The West Indies always is. I just don't know a more chilled out place. Weather was perfet for what we were looking for i.e. it was back end of rainy season, so the sunny parts were interspersed with overcast and wet but still hot (28 to 29 degree) patches. My parents and brother and sister-in-law shared a lot of the Eben load so Nic and I got a lot of time together and boy did we get through some backgammon. The resort was perfect for our needs, it was a cottage hotel so we had a lot of space in the rooms and outside space . So why not refreshed? Well mentally I am, but I'm a physical wreck. Ebs never adjusted to the time difference which has meant 8 days of between 3 and 5 o'clock waking It did get better towards the end but nevertheless urrgh. However apart from that perfect.

Favourite holiday snap - My stepmother Jo with Ebs.

Tell me about it - though my little ones adjusted well, it is I who lost sleep and have so far not readjusted to uk time.
The west Indies sounds good, I'll check it out for next year.

I went to NZ around 4 years ago. I was fine flying out and just sailed through it, but it took me close on 2 weeks to get over the Jet Lag on the way back it was horrendous. Didn't matter though I had such a good time out there. Where in NZ were you?

Six, We went there mainly to see friends who have settled in Auckland but tried to see lots as well. The wai-o-tapu geothermal area was amazing - Oh and of course 'Mount Doom'. Whale beach for surfing.
Where were you?
