Ibiza in August

Ibiza in August

Ibiza in August is the month, the month when the world, his wife, his children and his grandparents descend onto the island like a swarm of locusts.

To say it is busy is an understatement, from the moment you arrive with the queues for taxis at the airport, to getting a table at your favourite restaurant… there are just people everywhere.

Many who live and work on the island call it Angry August, as everyone seems to have lost their usual cool laid back demeanor, the work is that little bit harder, the weather that little bit hotter and the customers that little more demanding. Read more

My love affair with Ibiza – how it all began

My love affair with Ibiza

My love affair with Ibiza

My love affair with Ibiza and this blog began by pure chance, about 10 years ago a dear friend of mine gave me some podcasts to listen to which included Trance Around The World as it was then by Above and Beyond and I loved it and became a fan of theirs.

A couple of years later we got the opportunity to see Above and Beyond live at Brixton Academy in London and had one of the best nights ever. We had our children young so clubbing and going to gigs had never featured in our lives but from the euphoria of that night we were desperate to see Above and Beyond again.

We looked through their tour dates and the only one which worked childcare and work wise was Amnesia in Ibiza flying out of Bournemouth on Monday and returning Friday with the gig itself on Thursday night so we booked without hesitation. Read more
