This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Holiday snaps

So, we had two weeks off the ship in south Tenerife. The first week we stayed in a villa in Golf Del Sur with Sally's mum and stepdad, and her sister and family - 12 of us in total. We went to Siam Park:

Loro Parque:

and had a traditional Christmas Dinner (on 29th December)...

and played on the beach...
and spent time in the hot-tub; here is Amanda (Sally's sister), Noah and Anna:

During our second week we enjoyed being a family on our own for the first time in 2 years. We spent plenty of time on the deserted cliffs and beaches of Silencio:
and bought some orange oranges (we'll never get over the thrill of not finding green ones)...
and we climbed a huge mountain (the kid's first ever!):
I bought a wetsuit for 10 Euros in a charity shop, and took the kids snorkeling (a lot) - and the kids were frozen....

...and spent some time on the beach...
The funniest thing was when our rental car broke down miles away from anywhere: I rang the rental company and they said they'd be there in five minutes - and they were! Apparently they had been in the neighbourhood! They had to give us a bigger car for the remainder of our time away, which was very useful for bringing back the huge quantities of beach shells we'd collected over the 2 weeks. God has a great sense of humour. And happy new year, bye the way. Olly
