Tan maintenance conundrum 

Having spent four days solid on the beach in Sitges last week, I picked up quite the tan. As in, every single person I’ve seen since I got back has been stunned at just how dark I’ve gone. I love lying in the sun. And it shows…     After a massive breakfast in the morning, ...

Fairweather nudist tendencies

I've just spent a fantastic five hours lying in the sun at Platja dels Balmins, the beach next door to our hotel here in Sitges. It was bliss. Aside from the uninterrupted sunshine and the light, cooling breeze, I think it was the most civilised beach I've been to. Reflecting on it as I packed ...
