The drinking holiday

I have no intentions to use this blog as a way of me earning a living I just want to write about my experiences of travelling. So this post might come across completely differently as it’s not about my travels to Ghana; yet, about my holiday last year to Spain.

Personally, this holiday was less interesting than my time in Ghana as it was, to put it frankly, a drinking holiday. Now, this isn’t because I don’t want to see the culture that Spain has to off; however, I was on tour with the rugby girls from uni — so of course it was going to be a drinking holiday. Plus, this was probably just what I needed at that point in time. I was near the end of my degree and my dissertation was about to be handed in. Some of you might be wondering why I went on tour when I needed to finish my dissertation. If I hadn’t I think I would probably have had a breakdown of some sort — hey, 4 days of sun, sea, sand and drinking probably helped in some way, well maybe not the drinking. I was 21 and acting 21 instead of being a responsible student (yes, you can get responsible students — normally the ones also panicking about what else they are going to do in life now uni is ending). Don’t get me wrong I had a great time on my drinking holiday as we decided that the final year students were not to be responsible for anything — instead of the ones being responsible for everything. It made a nice change and I’m pretty sure we all went back to our freshers’ ways for the 4 days. But, when you want to see the world you soon relies upon that you will never do that if you’re drunk or in a party town. If you’re travelling for a long amount of time you will probably want to be able to go out every now and then — yet, who doesn’t when you work all the time too. Moreover, you soon learn that you can have a good time just seeing the world and sights that you would never see anywhere else. Or, even better loses yourself within the culture and try to take in as much as you can at once.  But, surely this is the difference between holidays and travels. If you are going holiday you’re going to enjoy yourself and have fun; yet, if you’re going travelling you are going to educate yourself on that country and culture.

Let’s face it I’m not going to go into the details of that holiday as I have in my other posts about Ghana. Besides this blog to let people see what I found useful and to try and see how I saw and see the world on my travels. As a 20 something is going to see the world in a different way to that of a 40 something. And, I’m going to see the world in a different way to a 20 something from a different country and different lifestyle to me.

Speak soon.
