Arrived! - OK so a exotic holiday island - whats the first thing you do - beach!!!
Nice beach but whats that in the water - ahhh - sea urchins - might need to be careful when in the sea - dont want to stand on one of those - Hmmm I told my colleague too .... so after a long flight we decided to have a sleep on the beach as the room was not yet ready.
Went back and finally got the room .... then back to the beach for a swim.
I went into the sea carefully minding the sea urchins until it was deep enough to swim.
While I was swimming my colleague starting to run down the beach shouting "yahoooooooo" - My brain is saying ... "I hope he remembers the ......." OOOCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Ohhh OK now we have to see what damage he's done - yep his foot is full of spines! Have you ever tried doing first aid while swimming - back to the beach! Dont step on it else it will make it go in further.
So here we are in paradise, and I have his foot in my face, trying to pull spines out of it! Hey I said dont step on that foot - men! Never listen!
I tried pulling them out with tweezers but they are well and truly stuck now! I managed to get 1 but the rest are well stuck.
OK so now wheres the hospital..... My colleague is now panicing about them cutting his foot up - and hes worried about the hygiene, hes pulling my shirt all the time like a little boy, please dont let them cut me!
So anyway - they tried all things to get these spines out but they are stick - They applied some special oil to soften the heel but it didnt work - they banadaged the foot and said that it would come out on its own.
Great start to the holiday!
Sunbed fun - Fantastic place - only the sunbeds were a little bit strange, when I lifted my head to look at the Ocean all I could see were my legs. Plus that so called sunbed started rocking again to put me back to sleep... ! Sometimes I got a little seasick ..... then I had to ..... overboard and my stomach felt better. :-) Okay just kidding - not that bad!
