The Time I Planned Two Weeks In The Sun But Had Two Nights In Durham

What I posted;
Summer is officially on it's way... 5 star all-inclusive holiday to Paphos, Cyprus booked!  Can't wait to be relaxing by this pool in 3 months.

What really happened;

This is the kind of holiday I had imagined I'd be on last year.  The week off work was booked, my bikini's and sun-cream were at the ready, I was all set.  My boyfriend and I were geared up for a last minute deal.  We'd both heard the tales of holidays for half the price, every extra imaginable thrown in.  Sea views, room upgrades, cocktails 24 hours a day, and all for a bargain price.
The mystery of our destination added to the excitement for our first proper holiday together. We waited until two days before until we tried to book.

We overlooked one thing.  Our week off was October half term.  Prices doubled.  Where did we end up? County Durham for two nights.

My visions of sipping cocktails while the waves lapped gently on the shore vanished when I slung my palm tree print cover up back in the wardrobe and dug my jumper out.

We spent two nights at Redworth Hall Hotel in County Durham, which don't get me wrong was well enjoyed, it's just that I'd sooner have sangria than scones.
This year we are making no mistakes and the countdown to Paphos has begun. x
