Fri 16 Feb
Today was the first day that felt like holiday mode.
I made the 20 minute walk up to the Zephyr Lodge – a hostel I nearly stayed in but private rooms were too dear (200Q a night, dorms from 105 I think).
It is however a great place with loads going on and many a friendly backpacker.
I took up a space with 2 lovely nurses from London and whiled away a few hours chatting to them and a fair few others as the group grew as more people ventured to the pool.
The infinity pool is definitely what draws people here – and you can see why….it’s simply stunning
A fair few hours had in the sun, lunch was calling. I bid my new acquaintances goodbye and headed back into Lanquin to find this little Turkish place I had been told about. Blink and you’ll miss it but it’s a great little shop called Hamsa
that does pitta with hummous and meat or falafel (for about 25-35Q).
So wish I knew about this place yesterday!
Back to my hotel to sit by the pool, have a beer and chat to the people I’ve got to know there. Some sad news awaits thou as their little puppy who had been ill, took a turn for the worse during breakfast and had sadly passed whilst I was out….
RIP over at rainbow bridge Honey 🌈
