Radio Silence

I took Harry oversees for the first time in March and took the plunge at Sunsail’s Club Colonna in Antigua. Basically I paid a fortune (sterling is a nightmare against the $) and quite frankly it wasn’t worth it. Aside from the banging R ‘n’ B played everywhere that drove me literally mad, the boats were awful (kicker broke on the Laser first time out), the staff were the most demotivated bunch on planet earth, the place looked like it needed a complete makeover and the only creatures that looked like they were enjoying themselves were the cockroaches that made a nightly appearance from under the wooden cladding on the bar deck. The place is a dump and should be shut down – word of advice: if you’re thinking of booking a Sunsail holiday: “Don’t do it” – keep the credit crunch folding stuff in your pocket and book somewhere decent. No wonder they’ve shut down all their European resorts…

Harry enjoyed it though, as only a 2 year old can, but that’s because we hot-footed it out of the God-forsaken Chavsail resort every day and went somewhere nice with a beach…and don’t even start me on the morons that were around the pool and in the bar. Awful, awful, awful…if I ever have to sit through the forced jollity of a quiz night ever again, believe me I WILL shoot myself.
