We stayed at Riva Bodrum Resort, overall the hotel was good and we enjoyed ourselves but there were a few hiccups. New management had recently taken over and as our friends said, it was evident that they were having teething problems and that they were a bit understaffed. We had a few problems with air conditioning and house-cleaning but I guess we're both quite laidback so we didn't let small things ruin our holiday. Except for the fact that I managed to change the setting on the camera so all our photos turned out blurry -.- Nevermind I don't want it to ruin our week away.
We became friends with a mum and daughter from Manchester, they were some of the 2 loveliest and friendliest people I had ever met. We just chatted away about everything and they were so easy to get along with! Sadly we didn't swap emails or anything to stay in touch :( but it would be nice if one day we managed to :) They also gave me the prettiest little pendant which was so nice of them, a little golden Turkish eye which they said will mean that I live to 150 and that I will win the lottery, fingers crossed XD
Before holiday I asked my dad and brother if they had any books I could borrow, so my brother lent me 'Cloud Atlas'. On holiday I tried reading it and it was definitely not easy reading! The first chapter was set in the olden days so was just full of old English words, it was too much effort to read on holiday. So instead I swapped books with Pardis and read 'Mornings in Jenin'. It's a really good book and I would definitely recommend reading it, however it was so sad! The book was about the Israeli and Palestinian conflict. It's horrible and upsetting reading about things that go on in the world, so I've lost a lot of faith in humanity :/ Now I need some new books to read over the summer, if you know any good ones let me know! :)
Pardis wants to do a personal training course this summer so I've asked him to train me, I've already been to the gym with him a few times and I've been dying for days after, so I guess I'm excited but scared for the continual pain coming up ahead. I'm excited to get stronger and tone up a little bit so fingers crossed it all goes well! Just need to keep it up for next years holiday! :)
Have you been anywhere nice recently? If so link me below I'd love to have a read about your holiday adventures! :)
