    ... on the 'high end' side of the hotel instead of that where the party was going one. This was family day that afternoon, and having the nice sandy beach was great for the families and children. The other beach is very rocky and a bit mucky. I remember sinking in up to my knees in a few spots 2 years before, and wondering if I would get Bilharzia, also know as Shistosomiasis.

    ... put Aussie Jo to bed, hilarious! It was the first time that we had shared a room on our own and it was definitely worth the wait, Jess is really confident and can definitely back it up, I have to make sure I'm on top of my game otherwise I'm history.

    (Maybe she has a bit of princess in her then!!) It was great to meet
