Recently, I took a trip to Lanzarote which was very much needed after deadlines and exams. It was the perfect week of chilling out all day in the sun, overeating and indulging on one too many cocktails and desserts… what more could you want out of a holiday!?
If you didn’t know this already, the Canary Islands tend to be hot all year round – which is why Lanzarote is one of the perfect places to go if you’re wanting to jet off for some winter sun. Obviously, in winter, the climate isn’t as hot as it would be in the summer months but you’re talking around the low 20 degrees mark – bliss.
I’ve been to Lanzarote many times before so knew exactly what to expect upon arrival. I stayed with my boyfriend at the H10 Rubicon Palace in Playa Blanca – which was lovely. I couldn’t fault anything about the hotel – the food was always amazing with so much variety on offer, the staff were very helpful and the hotel had a certain buzz about it. We booked the holiday through TUI and chose to stay all-inclusive, which I would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a totally chilled out holiday. The trip was paid for before we got there so we had no additional costs to worry about… unless of course you took a trip to the spa (like I did) or decide to go shopping at the marina – which is a long walk (around 50 mins) or a short taxi drive away (around 5-10 mins).
I would expand on what we both got up too but I can’t say we did a lot… apart from soak up the sun all day, go for the occasional walk, play many games of Uno (which I am rather good at, if I do say so myself)… oh and we definitely drank and ate, a lot.
Now that I’m back, I’m definitely feeling the holiday blues as the weather is currently very dull and dismal in England – shock! So, I thought that I’d share a few pictures from the holiday (if you haven’t seen any over on Instagram already) which will make you reminisce on one of your previous holidays or perhaps get you excited about an upcoming one?!
