What I did on my holidays

So this years summer travels took me across the sea to beautiful Jamaica. More specifically the luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay and it was stunning. 

The rooms were decked out with either a super deluxe king bed or 2 doubles, tv, fully stocked mini fridge, bottle of vodka and rum.  Jacuzzi bath, double sink bathroom, toilet, shower etc. But rooms are rooms anywhere.

We chose the luxury side as it was adults only, so no kids. Personally heaven for me. Unlimited visits to the a la carte restaurants, branded spirit drinks etc.

My favourites were the Jamaican and Japanese. Mainly for the food but the shows they put on are super fun. Oh and who doesn’t love a good buffet breakfast 

       

 The beach was exquisite, private and peaceful. I tried to get down there each morning before others arrived. Just to have some me time 

        

Pools were clean with constant entertainment or quieter areas if you wanted to peace, grounds lush and green.

     

           
This was 2 weeks of relaxation, reading and rest

Below are a few of my holiday essentials;

Sunscreen and after sun lotions -stay safe

Books, with my personal recommendations

Sunglasses these are Joanie Clothing 

Chub rub stick

Bug repellent 

And the famous big cup, super for filling with cocktails and keep it them cool

Weekends away

Last weekend me and some gal pals hopped on a little steel bird and flew all of 20 minutes over the irish sea for a weekend in Dublin. 
We arrived just in time for the start of the St Patricks festival,  which meant the city was even more full with tourists from all over the world and of course plenty of leprechauns

Anywho I digress, we decided to do something that I love more then anything when in a foreign city…….
OPEN TOP BUS TOUR, in hindsight it was a little to cold for top deck but hey what the heck, I was on my holidays and Chris our driver was a total legend

We took full opportunity to use the 2 day pass and hop on and off all the way round the city
We stopped at the Guiness Storehouse and went to pint school and enjoyed 2, yes 2 free pints of the black stuff

Next stop on the tour was Kilmainham Gaol the sight of many imprisonments and executions, including those involved I the 1916 uprising. A very sombre place but one filled with history.

Back on the bus we stopped of for a little warm up drink at the Jameson Whiskey Tour, learning how the drink is made and how to taste the difference between different types, so 3 shots and a whiskey ginger and lime later I was a certified whiskey taster

And no trip to Dublin would be complete without a trip down Temple Bar, tip of the day bring plenty of €€€€’s but don’t be put of the place is a blast.
And as it was St Patricks day festival. Weekend we of course dressed for the occasion
