Quite frankly, the past few months have proven rather stressful for me (what with having to sit my A-Level exams, and then having to anxiously anticipate the results for two months). Therefore, a relaxing summer holiday was seemingly what I need... and it was certainly what I got.
I, in fact, spent the last week and a half of August on the Balearic island of Menorca (or Minorca, seeing as there seems to be much deliberation over what it's actually called). Whilst there, I played out the majority of my time doing very little aside from reading, sleeping, eating and lying on a sunbed. This sort of routine seems to apply to most summer, all-inclusive holidays - and although it's not usually my cup of tea (I prefer to visit places that have more to do and more to explore), due to my recent A-Level stresses, such a break was probably just what I needed.
