palm trees in paradise

So the holiday is well and truly over. Gone are the days where it is acceptable to eat ice cream at 10am and sleep at 3pm. I arrived home early on Monday morning from Sharm el Sheikh after a frustrating two hour delay, greeted by a slightly chillier climate than I have been use to! To say I had a wonderful holiday in Egypt would be an understatement. It was the best two weeks spent with my lovely boyfriend Rob in pure paradise. The temperature was an unfaltering 38 degrees + and many lazy days were spent sunbathing by the pool under a cloudless sky.

Our hotel, the Baron Palms in Sharm, was just magnificent. It lived up to all my expectations and more. It had a majestic air about it with its seamlessly endless marbled floors, plush velvet chairs, cascading waterfalls and aesthetic architecture. Following a breakfast feast of pancakes, waffles and maple syrup, we adopted our position by the pool, book in hand, soaking up the rays, occasionally refreshed by the cooling breeze and a spritz of rose water by the pool staff. We spent most the time lounging around the pool as well as taking a stroll along the sandy beach and finding fishes in the crystal clear sea. We also took a trip out on the quad bikes for a sunset trail through the desert, visiting a Bedouin camp and cavorting with some camels.

Unfortunately I did get ill, really quite ill on my second day, but I went almost half expecting this. It seems you are more than likely to suffer from some sort of bug when visiting Egypt and I packed plenty of supplies to deal with any such eventuality. I wouldn't blame the food or the cleanliness of the hotel in the slightest; it was kept pristine all day long. Rob ate and drank exactly the same as me and he remained unscathed all holiday. It didn't put a dampener on our time away or taint the holiday memories at all. Following a quick visit from the doctor and a mortifying injection in the bottom, I was right as rain the next day. I would definitely recommend our glorious hotel and I would go back to Egypt in a heartbeat. I miss it already...
