Missing the sunshine: we all need a bit of Ibiza inspiration

So Leeds actually had a hint of sunshine today! After over a week’s worth of rain I was beginning to feel that would be it for the good weather this year, but maybe there’s a little hope. This got me reminiscing about the sunshine…

Over the summer I went on holiday to Ibiza, now most people would assume I went out partying every night and spent the days sleeping it off, but actually you couldn’t be more wrong. Now don’t get me wrong I have had amazing times in Ibiza with my friends, visiting the top night clubs and getting an amazing tan but this time was different, and in fact most times have been on the island and I want to show a little insight into what’s behind the stereotype.

I first went to Ibiza when I was just eight years old, I was unbelievable excited and of course all my friends thought it was “well cool” as we went back over my teens. My family and I love it out there and this summer was no different. Ibiza has so much more to offer then people think and I can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The people are so relaxed and friendly and the beaches make you want to stay forever. As well as the sand, sea, sunbathing, eating, drinking and relaxing one of the things I love about Ibiza is its style. Every time we go we visit the hippy market and the stalls on offer are just incredible, lit up with vibrant colours and full of character you can’t find anywhere else like it. In the background you’ll hear drumming and music and see instruments you didn’t even know existed, all adding to the atmosphere they create. The people express themselves through their work and as you wander around in awe your eyes are constantly captured by shoes, bags, clothing, jewellery all made by them with so much detail and care. It certainly made me envy their creativity and sense of style, I suppose it does help that they all have amazingly bronzed bodies though to pull the style off!

So of the course the first must when visiting Ibiza is to explore the beaches…

Make sure you visit Ibiza town in the day not just at night…

And most importantly eat lots of ice cream… especially if its hazelnut and mango!
