And here's why.....
But mostly because I was so freaking chilled not even the prospect of rays in the water freaked me out!
It was supposed to be a "working" holiday but, to be honest, I didn't get anywhere near as much done as I wanted but I read a bit and it was sooooo nice to just relax in a place where there is sunshine and nature and beauty and hardly any people.
And champagne, of coure.
What about you? How do you chill?
Well I could certainly chill that way LOL that looks amazing :)ReplyDelete
I am happy just curling up with a book and a drink of some sort for a few hours if I get the chance for a few days or week maybe then a cruise is a nice way for me to chill :)
A book and a drink sound pretty damn blissful to me, Helen!Delete
Ahhhh. Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Nobody's Baby But Mine. Nice scientific experiment. Great story!ReplyDelete
You have an eagle eye, Laney :-) Yes, fab book, a reread for me!Delete
Thanks for your detective work, Laney. I was trying to read the title but failing. Lovelovelove that book...and to keep on topic...rereading old favourites is a perfect way to chill.Delete
I'm still trying to figure out how she did it, Bron :-)Delete
I'm not a big re-reader but after I read that SEP I suddenly wanted to revisit all my Jenny Crusie books too!
I Googled some of the lines in the book that I could read (hard to read the further right I read) and voila!Delete
Oh, and how do I chill? With a refrigerator, LOL!
That is dedicated Ms Laney :-)Delete
Amy, I'm sure I could chill like that! I'm sure I could. :)ReplyDelete
Escaping with a book or a catch up with friends are my favourite ways to relax, or on winter nights - a long, hot bath!
Oooh a bath! The perfect way to chill, Annie.Delete
That sounds like a fabulous way to unwind! And yes, always with a glass of champagne :DReplyDelete
I love to unwind with a book in some place either sunny or cosy, or if I feel like people-ing then brunch with my friends is always a great idea!
Cosy works as well, Stefanie. In front of a fire somewhere when its snowing outside is a particular fantasy of mine :-)Delete
Oh, those pictures! Just looking at them makes me feel more chilled. That is my exact idea of how to truly unwind -- a week of nothing but reading, swimming and eating (and champagne, of course). It looks as if you had an amazing time, Amy! :-)ReplyDelete
Oh my, Michelle, it was soooo damn nice :-)Delete
I'll quietly ignoring the need of a wee small toy plane to get there -- not my idea of chilling at all! -- and focusing on the bubbles, the sand, the sunshine, the lack of people, and the Kindle. And agreeing that this is the perfect way to relax.ReplyDelete
My chilling-out days pretty much always involve a screen: either the trusty Kindle or the TV for a binge-watch or the cinema big screen. Guess it always involves story for me, and the escape to another world.
Oh yes - shutting yourself away in the house on the couch under a pile of blankets and binge watching some tele sounds the perfect chillin' recipe, Bron! Maybe some grape juice to accompany?ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place! I am going "home" to Wisconsin for a week on Wednesday. My kindle and I plan to share some quality time sitting on the grass in a park on Lake Michigan!!!ReplyDelete
Sounds perfect, Laurie!ReplyDelete
Next time take me I would love to chill out like that! wow that looks amazing. Your little grey cells would thank you. Chilling out to me is when I have the house to myself and doing what I want without worrying about anyone else. However doesn't quite workout that way anymore because I have beagle to look after. So my chilling out time is when I go away with all my lovely ladies once a year even if hard work as well. I love it. Went from four days to six days now so can have a day to just chill and do what I want. ;) At home how I chill is a nice bottle of champagne and watching a good movie #SaturdayNightsReplyDelete
Ah! The joy of pets, Jan :-)Delete
Amy that island is so beautiful! I had never heard of it before you posted your pictures of it. It looks like the perfect place to chill!ReplyDelete
Warmth, water - either the sea or a pool or preferably both - a good book and no housework or pressing deadline to worry about is my idea of chilling!
