my summer holiday

I've been home a few days from Italy and I took so many photos during my trip I thought some kind of holiday post was due.
Let's do this in bullet points because does anyone really want a detailed paragraph on my holiday? Probably not.

 I went to Lake Garda which is the biggest lake in Italy (fun fact of the day.)

 I ate eight margarita pizzas while I was there. That's almost a pizza a day! They were so good...

 I read four out of the five books I brought - pretty successful. But they were easy-to-read books.

 The weather was quite unpredictable as it rained three times while we were there (one huge thunder and lightening storm) but most of the time it was lovely.

♥ We went to a theme park called gardaland one day and also a waterpark another day.

 The apartment we stayed in was nice (although the landlord lady was a total nag - 'no diving' 'don't have the air conditioning on and the windows open' 'you were too noisy last night.') and my bedroom was very cute and quaint. One of my favourite things about holidays is having a new view outside my window in the morning - it's so refreshing.

 I did a lot of swimming.

 My two little cousins (both under two) were with us on holiday (as were their parents, my aunts and uncles) which was fun. I love babies but sadly babies don't love me unless I bribe them with food.

 I turned seventeen while I was there. When I woke up and went to get breakfast I noticed my mum had bought me a chocolate muffin from the bakery and instead of a birthday card she got me a postcard with a kitten on the front (she knows me well.)

That's my holiday in a nutshell. I really enjoyed it but I have to admit I'm at that age now where I'm slightly 'over' family holidays. I love my family (most of the time) but I couldn't help think about how much more fun I'd have with my friends. Also my sister, who is nineteen, didn't go this year so I was the oldest and it just felt a bit lonely at times. Still - sun, swimming, reading, playing cards (does anyone else play a lot of cards on holidays?) eating out in restaurants - who could complain?
I'm just glad to be back, that's all.

Okay question time:
Did you go on holidays this year? What was it like?
