Postcard from Sanya


Mark and I decided to do some "traditional" travel over the May Holiday, and booked ourselves a resort package on Hainan Island. We usually do more "adventure" travel and eat a lot of street food, so this trip was an interesting change.

We read a bunch of books, swam in the ocean, collected shells, ate grilled fish and veggies on the beach, and both came home with amazing sunburns. The key factor in the sunburn fiasco was failure on my part to read the directions on our sunblock - it was not waterproof, and had also probably already expired. Lesson learned.

In any case, it was a lovely lazy time and I think we'll be doing more of this kind of thing in the future.
