9 Days in the Sun! :)

Hey Guys!
I've been on holiday! This being one of the reasons I haven't posted recently. On the 5th August, my family and I flew out to sunny Rhodes (a Greek island) and spent the next 9 days sunbathing, playing tennis and partaking in many other activities!

The first day, we spent in Rhodes Old Town being all touristy and enjoying the views and culture. This was really nice and it was lovely spending some quality time with my family, whilst topping up the tan!

On the Wednesday, we took a taxi to the markwarner Levante beach Resort where we were to spend the next week. My brother and sister were in the "kids club" for 14-17 year olds so spent all day and evening with their friends. I, being too old for this, spent most of my day doing various exercise classes, playing tennis and sunbathing! I met some other people of a similar age to me so I spent each evening hanging out at the beach bar with them, and we ventured into Faliraki one night to enjoy the nightlife! 

Here are all the activities that I did (multiple times):

  • Beach Boot Camp
  • Aqua Aerobics
  • X-Fit
  • Legs, Bums and Tums
  • Circuit Training
  • Abs Attack
  • Body Conditioning
  • High Intensity Aerobics
  • Swimming
  • Team Triathlon (Team Apple PI! I ran)
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Kayaking
  • Gym
  • Table Tennis
I had a really good holiday, and I was sad to have to leave it all behind to come home to the real world. But, all good things have to come to an end eventually!

Here are some of my holiday snaps!

So there you go! I didn't increase the photo sizes because I thought that would make my blog post ridiculously long!! 

Where have you been on holiday this year?
