All photos taken by me.
So due to the majority of my funds currently being deposited directly into the travel fund, deciding on this years holiday required an element of alternative planning - the perfect outcome of which turned out to be five days at Benicassim festival for me and the boy. I love a good festival, and the additional draws of Spain, sunshine and a location nestling between the sea and the mountains sealed the deal. However, certain inevitable challenges are generally involved with summer festivals on a budget, especially for me - namely, camping. Now I am not exactly high maintenance (kicking cockroaches out of your makeup bag after the drains flood in your Vietnamese apartment will knock that right out of you) but a two-man tent in 40 degree heat for a festival that goes on 'til 8am every morning guarantees neither sleep nor presentable appearance. That said, we did quite well - until the fourth morning when we bailed and checked into a hotel for the last two nights! Well we tried, but 72 hours is a long time to go without sleep.
A few photos of our trip: Sunsets over the mountains and sunrises over the palms, beach hair, my (very) vintaged cutoffs, breakfast, the festival food market, aztec nails, neon dip-dye, music, festival camping wardrobe, between the mountains and the sky.
