I am now on my second holiday all by myself and the unwritten rules are amazing. My anxieties all kick in.

I don’t have to go on excursions.

I don’t have to go to the local village.

I don’t have to discover the island.

I don’t have to do anything intelligent.

I don’t have to leave the compound.

I don’t have to make an effort.

I don’t have to absorb the local culture.

I don’t have to apologise.

I don’t have to talk to anyone other than for politeness sake.

I don’t have to speak the language.

I don’t have to meet the Holiday rep.
On the other hand,…

I do have to learn to relax, to vegetate.

My routine (day one) is eat, read, drink, swim, doze. Repeat in any order. I don’t have to do any more than that. Not only do I not have to, it’s important that I do just that. I’m not good at doing little. But that’s exactly what I need and is why I booked an all inclusive holiday in the sun.
