A few months ago, Simon and I decided to book a little trip to Spain. We wanted to go on a holiday together after our first ever holiday together was such a success.
After pretty much no sleep, we headed to the airport and boarded the plane to Alicante. I struggled to stay awake for the entire flight.
Meanwhile, Simon was busy looking out the window.
We then grabbed our bag and jumped on a coach to the hotel. The journal only took 45 minutes but I kind of wish it went on longer so I could have seen even more of Spain out the windows.
We arrived at our hotel -Hotel Flamingo Oasis – and checked in. The room was so lovely and we had a balcony.
We went all inclusive so the first thing that we decided to do was head to the buffet for lunch. It was super yummy and there was a whole range of foods.
After having some food, we headed to some shops. The shops were all pretty repetitive. They sold novelty items (including a penis lighter) and Benidorm memorabilia.
We then decided to hit the buffet one more time before heading to bed for an early night.
We set our alarms for super early and headed downstairs for breakfast. I had pastries and an Full English Breakfast. After breakfast, Simon and I went on a new adventure. We went to explore without having any idea where we were going. We managed to find a little beach and it was absolutely lovely.
We sat by the beach for a little while before heading back to the hotel. In the hotel, we rested and then headed for lunch. Lunch was amazing, just like every other meal.
we then got the shops again where Simon bought a sombrero and I bought a new purse.
After shopping and spending lots of money, we were invited to play darts with some other people.
At first I was nervous but I totally killed it. I was actually really good at it and I was totally surprised.
After darts, it was time for a little rest and then straight to the games room.
I won one game of air hockey and Simon won another game. It was so much fun!
we then had another rest in the hotel room and then headed for tea. I ate so much spaghetti that I will probably turn into a walking carb.
The rest of the evening was spent watching a movie in bed which was the perfect end to the day.
On day three, we woke up to the sound of our alarms, ready for breakfast. I consumed pancakes, sausages, bacon and so many pastries.
We then took a walk past the shops and found a quicker way to get to the beach than the way we went the day before.
After sitting by the beach and admiring the view, we decided to head back to the hotel.
It was then time for some archery. I was completely terrible but at least I beat Simon!
We then headed for lunch where I ate even more food until I was about to explode.
After lunch, Simon and I headed out for a walk. We wanted to visit our favourite shop called Ale-Hop but unfortunately it was closed.
We decided to keep walking and we found an even quicker way to the beach.
Once our feet started to ache from all the walking we headed back to the hotel until it was time for more food.
We woke up nice and early for breakfast then headed out to do some shopping. Unfortunately, all the shops that we wanted to visit were closed so we decided to head back to the hotel just in time for a drink.
We then headed back out for a walk before going back to the hotel to do some rifle shooting.
I came third place so I am actually really happy about that. I feel like I got skills.
After rifle shooting, we went to the bar, got a drink and waited for lunch.
We enjoyed our lunch and then headed out to the beach and the shops. I bought a new backpack which I’m super excited to use.
We spent about 45 minutes on the beach before my feet started to itch and we had to head back to the hotel room.
It was then time for dinner and I thoroughly enjoyed my chip butty.
On day five, we woke up super early, had breakfast and then grabbed a picnic because we were off on a trip.
We headed to a blanket factory. It wasn’t very interesting but it was an experience and we now know not to do it next time.
After the blanket trip, we headed into Alicante and walked around a bit. Simon and I had ice cream and it was honestly the best ice cream I have ever had.
After ice cream and a walk around, it was time to get back on he coach and head back to the hotel.
We weren’t at the hotel long before Simon got bored so we headed to the beach. Simon had great fun splashing about in the sea. He is such a big kid. Meanwhile, I sat on the side watching people have fun. I’m not a big fan of the sea.
After the beach, we walked back to the hotel and headed into the game centre. Simon and I wasted a lot of money but it was all good fun.
It was then time for dinner and it was Asian night which meant almost if the food was Asian. I struggled to find stuff that I actually liked because I’m a fussy eater so I stuck with another chip butty.
We then headed back to the hotel room and watched tv until we fell asleep.
We woke up early and headed for breakfast. I was exhausted but I wanted to power through for food.
After breakfast, Simon and I took a walk to the beach.
It was absolutely freezing but Simon still went into the sea because he is absolutely mad.
Eventually, I talked him out of the sea and we headed back to the hotel. On the way we stopped at a few shops including Ale-Hop. I spent too much money again but it was totally worth it.
It was then time for archery and I beat Simon once again. Overall, I came 3rd place which I was very proud of. Simon and I are actually thinking of joining an archery club.
Then it was time for a flammin game which is where someone throws hoops and you have to get them on your arms. I nearly won but not quite.
After flammin, we headed for lunch where I had another chips, pasta and pizza. Odd combo but I’m not bothered.
It was then time for the beach. We bought some bats and a ball to play with on the beach. We also paddled in the sea.
After we were wet, we headed back to the hotel room for a bit before heading to the bar for a drink. I feel like I drank so much Pepsi that my blood has probably turned black.
Before dinner, we headed out to Ale-Hop and bought a few more bits.
Dinner time arrived then it was time for bed.
After waking up at 6am, we got ready and headed to breakfast. My favourite pastries were available so I was pretty happy.
We then walked to Ale-Hope but unfortunately, I fell over on the way so we had to head back to the hotel.
After a mini break, we went back out to Ale-Hop and we bought a few more bits.
It was then time for riffle shooting where I did terrible and scored zero points. Simon scored two points.
After riffle shooting, we sat in the bar for a drink of Pepsi before heading to lunch.
We then spent the whole afternoon on the beach which was lovely. It was a nice, sunny day so I sat and sunbathed while Simon paddled in the sea.
Sadly, we then had to head back to the hotel room to pack as the next morning was the end of our holiday.
The rest of the holidays was spend packing and travelling so I won’t bore you with all those details..
Have you been to Benidorm, Spain?
