Locked Down in London, Day 15: The Holiday We Could Have Had
Today is the first day of the Easter holidays; today is the day when I would have jetted off on our family holiday. I know this claims to be a book blog; but today I’m taking you on a virtual holiday; the holiday that I would have had, but for the coronavirus…
To the Canary Islands. My first time out of Europe!
All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go…

Virtual Escape: La Isla Bonita
So pack your bags. If you’re flying with me, you have to manage on cabin bag only; preferably a backpack, but bring that pull suitcase if you have to…
- Liquids in a clear plastic bag? Check.
- Kindle easily accessible for security? Check.
- Hiking boots – check.
- Swimsuit? Check!
- Passport, boarding pass, credit card, lifesaving medications – check. Anything else we can manage without… or we can buy once we’ve arrived!
Our island from the air:
Our destination: Santa Cruz de la Palma, on the island of La Palma, “la isla bonita” (=the beautiful island). The town is known for its old world charm: centuries-old buildings, cobbled streets… sea front – but we won’t have much time left to walk about today. We’ve got to get the keys to our flat – a nice duplex apartment with a huge terrace overlooking the beach.
The island of La Palma has everything you could wish for (we’ll do this in emoji speak because in theory I’m typing this up on my phone!):
