it was a lovely holiday. I spent two weeks sunbathing on the sandy beach, which was nice and secluded. The hotel was near a small town, which had very trendy shops where I bought lots of souvenirs for my family. In the evenings you could walk along the cobbled streets and admire all the antique shops. The local food was delicious and I ate out every night. One day I went on an excursion to the nearby snow-capped mountain. We even went skiing, although it was summer.
