So what does a Yorkshire Man do for his girfriend on her birthday? Well, to those of you who know him, yes, he cooked up some Spam!
Not only did the day start with a breakfast of egg and spam on toast (which I was informed was awful, obviously I didn’t eat any!) but it set the tone for the rest of the day. With big plans of swimming with dolphins, or going horse riding (as plan b) or to the spa (as plan c) I didn’t get to do any of said activities. Mainly due to ‘fat americans’ as Gaz would say. They’ve built cruise ship ports on the island meaning on certain days of the week (one of these being Tuesday – my birthday) between the hours of about 11am and 4pm everything is completely booked up by tourists coming in off the boat. This could be termed as a ‘massive birthday fail’ until we went to the beach and drank lots of rum punch!
This also meant we were too drunk to make it to the steak house I’d planned to go to, so after some hours of drinking and a tour of various bars on the island we made it to bed, and went for steak the next day!
