    Now that I know we are definitely going, I am allowing myself to get excited.

    I'm not really much of an outdoors person but I do love swimming, and I'm looking forward to some of the "island exploring" type activities. Gareth wants to do the ghost tour!

    And when I was browsing the site today I noticed the stargazing activities - Skywatcher, Watchinherskip - I will report back, weather permitting! :yes:

    Sounds like there is more than just swimming to do. :D Oh, a ghost tour, now that's up my alley.

    Eagerly awaiting the confirmation email here - they do have availability so I'm sure it will be fine, but will be happy when it's confirmed! :thumbsup:

    Will definitely take lots of photos and might even post them here (I still haven't done my Japan ones.... :sorry: )

    Well it's almost here - taxi will be collecting us at 6am tomorrow morning, :airplane: the surf shoes, flippers and boogie boards are packed! :surfer:No mobile phone access for 4 days - so work can't call! :thumbsup: The four-day forecast is pretty good - only rain on Saturday but otherwise fine! :sunshades:

    I am excited - I hope it lives up to the hype! :yes: One more sleep! :dream:

    Quick check-in - we are home, but I need to go make dinner right now!

    Photos are downloading off the cards so watch this space and I will try and hop on before I head to bed!

    Awesome trip - really really enjoyed it - I appear to have lost weight with all the snorkelling so that's a bonus! :yes:

    Can't wait to tell you all about it and show you the pics!
