A Christmas Break // Lanzarote

I had what some might call an unconventional Christmas for 2016 and whisked myself off to a sunnier climate (with my family and boyfriend of course!) for the final week of December to the lovely Playa Blanca. With the sun shining and temperatures at 26 degrees celsius it definitely made for an odd Christmas however not one that I'll be complaining about any time soon. We spent the week in a villa with a private pool and I used the week to rest and reenergise after a very hectic couple of months towards the end of the year. I spent most days having lazy mornings by the pool, strolls by the beach, massages at the nearby spa and eating lots of lovely fresh food with the odd bottle of Rioja thrown in. All in all it was a perfect holiday at a much needed time of the year.
