Gran Canaria Holiday Cheap
It seems like my holiday was yonks away now, sigh! To be fair it was 2 months ago... almost. I realised today that I hadn't looked over the photos from our week-and-a-bit away to Gran Canaria, to the Playa del Ingles region to be specific. That might seem a little odd, but we've been rushed off our tootsies over here! So rather than do an outfit post today I decided to compile a little collage (yes, kind of like being back at school in year 3 art) to show you what we got up to. We - if you're wondering - being me and my other half (pictured above for the first time ever on my blog, probably to his dismay).

In case anyone is curious, we booked through Monarch and flew from Birmingham and our hotel was called Sol Barbacan. It looked like a throw back to the 80s in their promo photos. But upon arrival we weren't traumatised by garish decor and complimentary speedos... although, I'll admit, that would have been a cracking arrival. It seemed freshly decorated - for a pretty affordable holiday it was better than expected! 

Alas, the (minor) tan has faded, but I'm still pining after mojo sauce (bottom right!). That's some guuuud sauce - bravo Canarians!


  1. Awwww CUTE!! Looks like you had an amazing time!!xx

  2. I love the obligatory cat photo. It's only right to go on holiday and come home with 484904 cat snaps! Looks like you had a lovely time too xx

  3. Awww, this makes me want to fly away all over again! My tan is peeling already. :(

    Tara xo

  4. Looks like you had a good time! The obligatory cat pics mad me laugh!! xx

  5. the hotel looks awesome! + it looks like you had a wonderful time there :)

  6. Just got back from Gran Canaria too! I was in Maspalomas (can't spell it...) which is fairly near ish to Playa del Ingles. We managed to walk to Playa del Ingles beach but didn't get to the town unfortunately as it was a few hours walk from where we were! Looks lovely from your pics though :)

  7. I was toying with the idea of going to Gran Canaria next year after I went to Lanzarote in March this year for some winter sun as the climates would be the same! Looks great! x
