In the past I’ve often had a problem with New Year’s Eve. Everywhere is way more expensive than normal and the ‘pressure’ of having to have a particularly outstanding night often makes it an anti-climax. In the last couple of years I think we’ve got it right though…

Last year we sat on our roof here in Rincón watching the fireworks, which was pretty special as it was our first year on the island.

This year we saw in the New Year with our friends Stu and Ellie at their house in Bristol. It was a very pleasant evening spent eating curry (of course!), drinking wine (at least in my case) and catching up with our old friends. Midnight saw fireworks being set off around the neighbourhood and a couple of house parties spilling into the street for “Happy New Year”s all around.
