I woke up at 5.15am on Thursday 4th June but I didn’t get out of that super comfy bed at Little Lies until gone 7:30am. I was escorted to breakfast by Veronika where I had a lovely pho ga and we were joined by a member of the yoga class.
I spent all morning swimming and exercising in the pool, did a spot of Turkish lesson and generally enjoyed the surroundings. The staff were looking after me; from keeping the pool clean and garden plants watered, bringing me fresh water and food to cleaning the villa – all the staff were lovely.
I had fried spring rolls and ginger beer for lunch and rested with my leg up – my ankle was very swelled compared to that morning, so I didn’t want to overdo it!!
For dinner Veronika joined me and we enjoyed the evening sat at the dining table by the pool. I had the beef in bamboo, Veronika an Aussie pie for dinner and we had some red wine, but stuck to the one glass. Since my accident I hadn’t really found that red wine agreed with me that much, maybe it was psychological. I’m not sure where the time was going but before I knew it the night had ended and I was in bed listening to one of the songs to inspire the name of the accommodation in the Jungalo Collection at Phong Nha Farmstay. The room next door was called Gypsy.
