So we left at like 6 in the morning with the boat, even then the sky was so beautiful. The only downside was that it was really windy so the boat ride was like a 6 hour roller-coaster ride. My ankle and my back were hurting after that!
But when we got there it was so worth it! Blue skies, crystal clear water, white beach... It was stunning! The whole reason we got to go was because of Tessa's friend Rob, the island we were on was a private island, but it was meant to be a resort island, a bunch of investors bought it together and started building houses, a pool, beach house, restaurant... then in 2008 the economy dropped and the construction had to stop. So everything was sort of half finished and the pool and the club house had already started to fall apart. The island was almost empty, only 60 people live there permanently and the people that own a house come there on holidays. It felt like a paradise island in a post-apocalyptic world, like when we were at the beach you could hear the music by the pool playing but nobody was there. It was pretty cool!
I have sooo many pictures so this will be a looong post!

Day 2 & 3 the boys went fishing and us girls just stayed by the house and chilled. When the guys finally came back they had caught a lot of fish so we had delicious yummy fresh fish for dinner! Rum & Coke and Mimosas, great food, music, chill... such a lovely getaway!
