The hotel was spectacular – there was no other word for it. Built to resemble an African village (the Canaries are off the coast of Africa so it’s not as crazy an idea as you might think!) it was truly amazing.
We had to walk along a glass walkway to reach Reception and it felt as though we were actually walking through the tops of the trees in the jungle. There were walls of waterfalls, the most beautiful plants in the grounds, and a stunning and very inviting lazy river where you could just drift along. Add to that delicious food and wine to go with it, beautiful sea views and coastal walks and you can imagine how much we enjoyed ourselves. However, despite all the luxury and everything it was good to get home again.
That’s the thing I always find whenever I travel. I love seeing new places and enjoying new experiences but I love returning home. There’s something so comforting about being in your own home with all the familiar items around you, isn’t there? Even though the weather has been dire in England (no change there!) it’s good to be back and see the countryside around where I live looking so green and lush.
The blossom trees in my garden are heavily laden with flowers, the hedgerows are thick with fresh new green leaves. There is nowhere as beautiful as England in the Spring, or at least that’s my opinion.
I love to travel and I also love to return home but what about you? Do you hate leaving your home to go on holiday or do you hate returning to it? And where is the one place you would
want to live if you had to choose? Home or abroad?
I’d opt for home but maybe you’re more adventurous than me!
