Today we mixed things up a little, heading into the Action Waterpark after breakfast. Despite already being 25ºC, the water in the pools had not yet been fully warmed by the sun, so it was quite cold. We ended up staying for several hours and missed lunch in the dining room. Instead we had a hotdog and chips from the hotel’s poolside bar.

Top tip: Doughnuts and biscuits are served in the hotel lobby every day at 4pm. Be there early because they disappear quickly once the kids arrive.

I had a quick chat with the man working the pasta bar who tells me this is his second – and last year – working at the Aqua Nevis resort. Although he likes his job, the pay in Germany is much better. It will take him ten years to save the deposit for a house working in Bulgaria, or just one season in Germany. 

We’ve also remembered why we don’t normally do pool or seaside holidays – we’re both quite red now, despite our liberal use of sun lotion. However, we are also getting into the swing of doing absolutely nothing…
