Mark Warner holiday Kos
Mark Warner’s hotel in Latikira, Kos, Greece

Take dozens of single people, put them in a beach resort for a week, add sun and alcohol, and it’s simply a matter of time before holiday romances start to flourish.

It was just a couple of days into my Mark Warner holiday on the Greek island of Kos when the first newly-formed couple could be spotted. Walking hand-in-hand towards the beach, they looked happy, self-conscious and smug all at the same time. The rest of us were very happy for them – even if we did think that the holding hands thing was a bit twee – but we didn’t think the relationship would last much beyond the baggage carousel.

There are many reasons not to do it, namely that drinking in moderation isn’t necessarily bad for you and can even be beneficial, or that it’s better to have a couple of alcohol-free days every week throughout the year rather than go cold turkey for a month and then go bonkers in bars for the rest of 2014.

What attracted me to the idea in the first place was, like with most people, the thought of the weight I’d lose and the money I’d save, both typical but perfectly laudable New Year’s resolutions.

Welcome to my leisure blog A Lady of Leisure! As a journalist covering the leisure sector for a national newspaper, I am lucky enough to spend a lot of my time having amazing experiences and meeting fascinating people. From visiting new restaurants, bar and breweries, sampling new types of food and drink, checking out new holiday concepts and resorts, visiting theme parks, watching sporting events and trying out the latest health and fitness trends, there is an lot to write about in the leisure sector.

So here’s my solution, my new blog A Lady of Leisure in which I can write about anything and everything that interests me in the world of leisure. Continue reading Welcome to my luxury leisure reviews website ALadyofLeisure.com
