I have arrived in the most amazing place ever.
I have literally been transported to the pages of a holiday brochure to a tropical paradise. Where the sea is so warm and the sand is so soft and everyone is so mellow, (although sometimes the waiters are a little too mellow and forget your order!)
Zanzibar; otherwise known as the spice island is a mecca for sun worshippers and anyone in need of desperate chill out time.
I have swopped my tent for a Sunset bungalow for the bargain price of US$50 a night (for 2 sharing), which comes with hot water, air conditioning and a balcony to dry my much needed travelling clothes on.
The Indian Ocean is only metres away and I can hear the gentle lapping of the waves as I sit gazing out to the sea, my legs still aching from dancing barefoot the night before. I've lost my flip flops but I don't care. Here in paradise, nothing really matters.
This is the life…
