I visited here in the second week of November 2022. It had been quite a strange lead up to this short getaway, as just two weeks earlier I caught COVID and I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to postpone it. I knew for sure just five days before the trip, and with only five days to prepare for the trip, I had little time to plan an itinerary. However, I didn’t even bother because, to be honest, I was so worn out from COVID and had so much else to do.
I arrived at my hotel at around 9.30 p.m. I was staying at the Ourabay Apartments hotel, which was quite a luxury to me as I usually only stay in 2 or 3-star hotels. I’m not the fussy type when it comes to hotels; as long as it’s a safe, clean place that suits me just fine, I’m rarely ever in them anyway.
I arrived and was welcomed and greeted by a very friendly lady at reception, and I must mention here that every member of staff I came into contact with here was so friendly and accommodating. It was an absolute pleasure to have stayed here.
I did nothing for the first part of my trip
As I arrived so late, I didn’t do anything on the first night; however, surprisingly even to myself, I didn’t do anything the next day either, apart from walk down to a nearby cafe to grab breakfast and find a supermarket to get some supplies.
While I was out shopping, I found myself daydreaming about returning to the apartment and doing nothing but nap, binge-watch Netflix, sip wine, and drink herbal tea. This was quite out of character for me because I’m usually itching to get out and explore. I can only assume it was a result of the fact that I was still a little exhausted from being ill and travelling. Exploring didn’t at all feel appealing; in fact, it felt quite the opposite. But the idea of remaining in a tranquil location felt pleasant, so that’s exactly what I did.
Despite the fact that the vacation was just four nights long, I didn’t feel at all as though this day was wasted but rather an opportunity for relaxation, a chance to recharge, and a chance to feel better. I really enjoyed it.
You might be thinking I couldn’t have done much in my last two days; you couldn’t be more wrong. Stay tuned for my next blog, where I will share what I managed to do.
Thanks for visiting
Stay blessed 🙏🏾
