Mike didn’t believe me that such a thing actually exists, but according to Wikipedia (lol) it does! And I quote: ‘A babymoon is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently-born baby. More recently the term has come to be used to describe a vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby’.
So, we thought the latter was a good excuse to get away and enjoy some sunshine, before I get too preg to fly.
We went to Spain and were staying in a little town called Estepona, just a few miles away from Puerto Banus and Marbella. The sun shone and we have both come back feeling rested and chilled (and with nice tanned skin – I don’t care what people say about embracing pale skin, everyone looks better and healthier with a tan, well a real tan anyway).
We took a day trip to Gibraltar, lazed by the pool and on a few different beaches, ate some yummy food, visited a tiny little town that is in the Guiness book of records for having so many restuarants, admired the huge yaughts in the Banus Port, visited the old town in Marbella including Orange Square and generally just chilled and relaxed. (oh and we were on the same flight back as Nicole Scherzinger… yes she is as totally gorgeous in real life as in the pics you see)!
Here are a few of the snaps…
