My partner's idea of a good holiday is a 13-hour flight to a bus to a port to a ship to a dinghy to a rock to an oversized tortoise. Mine is a family-run hotel with a pool, walking distance of a village with a good restaurant and, preferably, something to look at. This time he won. I admit it was interesting. I did marvel. I did see nature at its most natural.
