We started Christmas Eve with a two hour drive to Luton Airport. Our flight was leaving at 6am and rather than sitting around at home trying to stay awake we headed off to the airport early. This gave us time to tuck into a big English breakfast at 4am.
I am not a good flyer. Not because I am scared. Because I struggle with having to sit still in a confined space for any length of time. So with this in mind I opted for comfort over style when deciding on my travelling outfit. I also used some leftover Birthday money to buy some new trainers and a sweatshirt for my holiday.
This is what I wore to travel to Portugal.
Slouchy Boyfriend Jeans – old from Next
Oversize Slouchy Stripe Tee – old from La Redoute
Oversize Cream Sweatshirt with sleeve detail – current from boohoo.com
White Trainers with black glitter star detail – current from very.co.uk
We are staying in an apartment at the Four Seasons in Vilamoura and we couldn’t have been happier with the welcome or the facilities at the hotel.
We spent the rest of Christmas Eve wandering around picking up a few essentials at the local supermarket. We didn’t venture far to eat opting for room service as I had been up since 5am on the 23rd December. After the most amazing burger, a small local beer and a soak in the spa bath it was time for bed. 40 hrs without sleep had finally hit me.
