Holiday Nostalgia

Latest challenge from blogthis 

In June 2006 we were lucky enough to be invited by a good friend to her employers house in Barbados for a week with 5 other couples! We had a brillant time, the only down side being I was pregnant with little mimoo so could not indulge in any of the sunset cocktail happy hour that seemed to start earlier and earlier each day.(booo!)

It was one of the best holidays ever as you can see it was a stunning house and the extra kick for me is that the entire house was designed and furnished by a famous interior designer called India Hicks,who is one of my idols! 

Besides our luxurious surroundings it was such a great holiday as the 5 other couples we went with we had spent the best part of a decade with in London and had spent many other holidays with, so sadly we all knew at the time that this would probably be our last one together for a long time as a few of us ladies were expecting babies and moving back to Australia soon after, one couple were moving to Asia, so it was an end of an era for us all, as we had all gone such great times together and being so far from home we had become like each others family for so many years. It was so lovely to be able to spend our last holiday together in such a beautiful part of the world.

Everyone loves Holidays. Everyone has had a holiday - be it a great big backpacking adventure, a luxury weekend away,a caravan trek as a kid with the family taking in Big Bananas, Big Prawns, Big Pineapples et al, Camping in the neighbours yard under the stars for a few nights. Elaborately planned holidays, impromptu 'let's get out of here' holidays. Blog about a holiday you've had that stands out - adventure, relaxation, family, friends, disaster, hilarious events! Who were you with? Where did you go? What made it so memorable? Share a photo if you want!

How could you possibly live a normal life after experiencing this? Your images took my breath away. What fabulous memories for you. India Hicks has obviously inherited her father's talent!
