Island Getaway in Ibiza

This trip seems like it was ages ago, and I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to blogging about it! Back in April, my friend Paul came over to Europe for a week to spend his spring break and we decided to head to Ibiza for a few days! We went  in April (off season), so we were able to score four days at an all inclusive resort for super cheap! We stayed at the Grand Palladium Resort, and it was definitely the nicest place I’ve ever stayed! All the food we wanted, all the drinks we wanted, a private beach, the most hilarious night entertainment (a really bad Michael Jackson impersonator)…. it doesn’t get any better hah! After an intense week of traveling through Ireland and the UK, it was nice to do nothing but lie on a beach chair and relax for a few days!

They had a buffet every day for breakfast/lunch/dinner, but you could also book a really fancy restaurant for a night which was what we did! You could chose from three and here we went to the cutest little Italian restaurant. Best part… part of the all inclusive!

We laughed so hard at this photo because it looks so photoshopped haha! It’s not I promise!

Another one of the restaurants we went to one night! I had fillet mignon and it basically solidified that this was the best trip ever!

Our view for breakfast. That little lake in the distance had flamingos in it. Yes, FLAMINGOS!

Okay before I go, I have to tell my “I almost didn’t make it back to Ireland” story! I ended up heading home a day before Paul, so we said our goodbyes and I hopped in a cab and was dropped off at the airport! When I went to get my boarding pass I had to hand them my passport, and when they opened it guess who was all the sudden a blue eyed, blonde haired, man!?!? Turns out my friend and I got our passports mixed up!! So I had to have a taxi rush me back to the resort so I could switch them and hurry back to the airport! All in all, I made it in time for my flight, but was kicking myself for not even checking my passport before I left hah!

Anyways, Ibiza was such a great trip. There’s really nothing like being in the company of a friend who knows me as well as Paul does. I had the best time, and wish I wasn’t so far away so I could have more friends and family come visit!

We also went to London right before we stayed in Ibiza so I am writing a little post about that! I’ve been to London twice now, so I decided I would just combine photos and write a little “London travel guide” post. So that should be up sometime this week, so stay tuned!

Love, Kaite.
