The kids had a whole month off school! We spent our first weekend in a five-star all-inclusive hotel on the island for our 18th wedding anniversary. It was fabulous and the kids loved it. It was in the tourist area, but out of season it was very quiet.
I was still finding my way around the island, walking to the supermarket each day in the heat. Everything was so different to home, even though everyone spoke English. It was at this time that we started going to the diving club and Andy did several amazing dives. I stuck to snorkelling with the kids!
