When you are on a three week holiday to Majorca, it is hard to fill everyday with something to doi, the majority of the time spent just sitting by a swimming pool listening to a Scouse family whinge about the price of the 'cervezas' whilst the teenage beauty lying next to you on a sun bed goes for a golden tan, but insteading realising at night time she is burnt to a crisp and can't sleep.
But on a four month adventure, it is especially difficult to do something everyday, and we have spent a few afternoons just sitting around.
Today is one of them.
But no foul. It's not terrible - there are worse places to sit and do nothing. I differ to Dan in that I would however like to be out - not content with just sitting and reading in the hostel, I prefer to be out and about, soaking up the area, and absorbing the place we are in.
You can't do that in Majorca - you can in Borneo!
The heat is causing a problem - unable to walk more than 200m without getting sodden with sweat is a continuing frustration for Mr Locke, and he is therefore, sensibly probably, not keen to wander around too much. Stupidly I soldier on, at times leaking for an hour at a time before finally conceeding I need to stop before I die. But we have discovered a happy medium - frequent shop stops to make use of their air conditioning, never buying a thing, but spending a fair while 'window shopping' before satisfactorily refreshed and ready to face the streets again.
Like all good teams, we know how to work efficiently and effectively!
