Memo:
After a whole week in Ibiza it was time to travel on to Portugal - a country that I’ve never managed to get to before. We landed in Lisbon early in the morning and got ourselves over to the beautifully modern Altis Belém Hotel & Spa. They quickly escorted us to a lovely breakfast before showing us to a stunning suite where we quickly lay down for a nap. After snoozle time we were just about ready to take on a little tour of the area. Now we’ve never been known to be culture vultures, but Belém is a beautiful area just to the west of Lisbon and it’s packed with sights. It sits right on the Tagus River, so although it was bright blue sky and boiling hot, there’s a constant cooling breeze. We managed to make it to the Belém Tower, Jerónimos Monastery and the Padrão dos Descobrimentos for a fantastic view of the surrounding area, before it was time to retreat to the hotel rooftop for more sunbathing and a dip in the pool.

Memo:
Our final night in Ibiza was date night and I wore pink to make the boy wink - a little playsuit which I picked up a couple of months ago in a tiny store in LA. We headed back to Experimental Beach Club for cocktails in the gorgeous glowing light of the sunset before settling down for our favourite kind of dinner - sharing everything on the menu. As the sun went down our table groaned under every type of starter and tapas dish on offer. Lying out under the dark sky later that evening we finished our glasses of red wine spotting shooting stars in a magical end to another memorable trip to Ibiza.

Memo:
After a long weekend in Ibiza we were ready to slow the pace, just slightly. We moved to Destino, the boutique resort from the Pacha Group. Set in tropical grounds with a beautiful pool area, we relaxed into the resort for a day of R & R. Sunbathing and snoozing, reading Vogue, pool paddling and lunching overlooking Talamanca bay. We were super impressed by the food - fresh and spicy gazpacho, deliciously zingy ceviche, fresh anchovies with pan de cristal and tomato and a magnificent grilled John Dory, along with a bizarrely decorative but delicious white rioja.
