a holiday in portugal | online journal

My little sister's tan. I'm jealous.

It's been waaaay too long.
I find having a regular blogging schedule quite difficult sometimes but I'm definitely going to work on that!  

I went to Portugal on the 4th of August for ten days. 
It was a very relaxing holiday - pool in the morning, beach in the afternoon, eat out in the evening and then curl up and watch a movie at night. Or play several games of Happy Families which we found at the apartment. I forgot how fun it was!

I'm one of the few girls my age who is in the water more than lying out sunbathing so I love waterparks (we went to slide and splash for a day) and swimming.
Everything was walking distance where we stayed, which I loved. 

just taking selfies in a restaurant bathroom. normal.

Lovely food, amazing weather and no homework/exams to stress about? 
A pretty great family holiday I think. 
It was so lovely to get a break and I just feel ready for another school year now.
Well almost. 
Ready as I'll ever be I guess.
