As designated map reader I failed miserably this year and we got lost several times but I feel I redeemed myself with the a very good find of an apartment in central old town Palma.The apartment always has a quirk. This year it was state of the art bathrooms that had no doors. They also led straight off the main room and had a non flushing toilet but given there was a high state of constipation going around this was not too much of a problem.
There are compulsory activities. We have the eating, the late lazy breakfasts, the long lunches and the late dinners, the Cava, the bimbling, the shopping, the browsing, a bit of culture and a bit of dancing, the flopping down after a hard day of nothing and the vava vooming as we get ready to go out again.
We also had bicycling which was immense fun and ended in ... yes you guessed it a long lazy late lunch with nicest of staff ever who even gave us their wine glasses to take home.
There were themes as always to this jaunt.
Songify -This has us in hysterics
Who has had the most poos and who hasn't had any? This unfortunately was a strong theme
This rightly leads on to Constipation cures of which there were many. I give you fruit, seedy fruit, strong coffee, sniffing library books, a phone box ( I kid you not,) a shower, a run, cigarettes, pulpy orange juice and a roast dinner to give you, and I quote, " a good gravy smell". As you can see we gave this a lot of thought and came up with a lot of remedies most of which were tried.
On still a note of high sophistication as us ladies pondered one day a certain word. there is always A word that grabs our imagination one year it was Camel toe. This year it was Queef. Look it up.
There was another running theme of being wild like you didn't do in your youth. I didn't need to participate in this because ahem well I was. This mainly seemed to involve doing fake tattoos, including a spitting cock, jumping in water fountains, getting terribly terribly drunk and coming home terribly terribly late
Roll on 2012. Which European destination will be our next target?
