Spain vacay

We got back from Spain last weekend after a fabulous (but super quick) week there! It was so good just to be in our house again and even though we were whizzing around the place tidying up, buying light fittings, a trip to Ikea, hanging pictures, assembling book shelves and a lot of gardening thrown into the mix, we still managed to have a fun holiday. Marks Mum and her husband came out for a few nights and stayed in a nearby hotel. It was soo good to see them again and also actually having some 'quality' time together. Some lovely meals out and an afternoon chilling on the beach enjoying some tapas and San Miguel! The beautiful beach at Mil Palmeras and my cheesy grin!

Holiday Inn, Kiev

I do though, want to share with you a little about Marks stay. Mark was only there for the night and stay at the  Holiday Inn  in the city. Kiev has two airports. He flew into Boryspil International airport and out of Zhuliany International Airport. They say they're only 30 mins away, but allow for traffic as it's closer to an hours drive.  Hubby definitely recommends the Holiday Inn , it was clean and comfortable, friendly staff and in a good location, right in the centre of the city.  As Mark was there for work he didn't really venture out of the hotel.
