Green

When on a beachy holiday you fully expect it to be just that; beachy. And Sandy. And Hot.

I was slightly and pleasantly surprised to find our resort was in a forest. You wouldn’t think it at first but once it was pointed out the realisation made you go “Ahhh Yeah. I see it now”. The tall clusters of green trees, shrubs and countless flowers I haven’t seen here. I’m not one to go back on holiday to somewhere we’ve already been and I’m probably still very much in the post holiday come down but I am trying to persuade OH that, you know, we should book it again. And maybe not wait a whole year.

    Those photos are stunning! Know what you mean about a post-holiday come-down. I still want to go straight back to Barcelona now, please!

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:13 pm

      That was lovely, I’m not even really very sure what it is though!

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:14 pm

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:16 pm

      Ahhh they did smell very nice – in a non hayfever-y type of way!

    Sounds like an amazing place. Such beautiful pictures.

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:20 pm

    Must have been gorgeous, no wonder you want to go back! 🙂

    No I wouldn’t put forest and flowers with beach either. It would seem strange.

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:38 pm

      Yep – it was almost like it was a bit of a tropical spot

  13. MummaG June 27, 2013 / 7:35 pm

  14. Charly Dove June 28, 2013 / 10:02 pm

  15. Emily June 29, 2013 / 12:25 pm

    Fabulous colours, just love the colours – I’m trying to get tropical flowers to grow in my garden to give the impression of being on holiday 😉 xx

    That’s a gorgeous splash of colour. Particularly loved the very bottom right – that little purple flower that looks like a pom pom. X.

    • Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:39 pm

      Hehe it does look like a pom pom. I think it was spiky to the touch though

  17. Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:13 pm

    They had some amazing greenery and flowers.

  18. Notmyyearoff July 15, 2013 / 12:35 pm

    Ahh it really was, very different things and all very beautiful with lots of sunshine and great lighting all over the place!
