Club Tropicana drinks are free...

Let's face it, it's that time of year again when Scotland is patiently waiting on the summer arriving. Before you know it it'll be October and we'll have seen neither hide nor hair of the sun, blue skies, bbqs, beer gardens and outdoor get togethers.

So what to do...flee the country that's what I say.

Although most people will say that's my motto these days and I'm never in the country. However, having been back for 8 weeks...yes, 8 weeks (gasp) I needed some essential UV light to kiss my skin, darken it a little and lighten my disposition.

What did I do? I went to my favourite place to soak it all up. Ibiza.

Just saying the word makes me smile. It's like my second home. I blame the parents. They first took me there when I was 10 yrs old and Space was but a mere twinkle in someone's eye. At the time I begged my parents to track down Wham! who were filming Club Tropicana on the island at the infamous Pikes Hotel. And do you knw what? They didn't. It scarred me all those years.

Now that I'm all grown up I can take myself to hang out at the pool area (it's not as big as it looks in the video), and only just last week I had the best Sunday Roast at their place.

I should correct my earlier statement. There's two words that make me smile. Wham! and Ibiza.
