    We’re just got back from a lovely holiday.
    We flew to Miami just after Christmas and had New Years Eve in Miami.
    Then we got on a Caribbean cruise.

    We both love the sun, the sea and the sand, however we don’t like to just do “the beach”.
    We love to explore. To walk around, to take a local bus or perhaps hire a car, but really see a place.
    We like to mix with local people and interact.

    This was Umbrella St, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    We hired a car in Antigua and went to one of our favourite places for lunch, a restaurant overlooking Nelson's Dockyard.

    Found a fabulous bar in St Maarten, and YES I had a bikini.

    This was the Umbrella Street when I went to see @Goldilox play in Enniscorthy in 2017.

    Once spent an afternoon in St Maarten getting lashed on rum punch with a Meryl Streep lookalike.
    Bar seats were suspended from a canopy like swings.
    Carried on our party back on board with 'Mr and Mrs Streep' telling others we'd spent the afternoon in a swingers bar.
    And yes, the airport is bonkers.

    Only planned break is back to the Azores again in June/July, 2 weeks this time. Planning on doing a lot of the bits we missed last time, along with revisiting a few of the favourites from last visit. For such a small island we're already finding a lot to do, current planning board is here:

    I would be so tempted to camp in the Monte Palace - and then write a scathing review on Trip Advisor.

    Personally I'm thinking of a holiday in either Cleethorpes or Macclesfield. The trouble with Cornwall in the summer is it gets full of people from … well … Cleethorpes and Macclesfield and such :teef:, so I figure I'll head the other way. :buddy:.
