Ibiza! Dance til daybreak and ocean baptisms

We knew it was going to be insane – it was that and more!

Before going, I had looked up things like ‘hidden secrets’ and ‘off the beaten track’ Ibiza things to do and see, thinking I’d want to party at night and explore in the daytime. It didn’t happen. Ibiza daytimes are for sleeping and beaching (and partying in the afternoon at Bora Bora).

View, shot by Pam, who actually did some sight-seeing while I slept in the day. Pretty! Thanks Pam!

Phil had organised an apartment for 8 of us right on Playa D’en Bossa (beach) – perfect location.

Our balcony. Right on Playa D'en Bossa beach. Right near Bora Bora. Perfect.

Tue 21st July: SPACE – Carl Cox’s birthday (Join the Revolution)

Hardcore shuffle/jump dancing til daybreak with Phil & Amy – not a lyric in the music all night!

Carl Cox's Bday @ SPACE nightclub, they know how to put on a show. Dirty beats, lasers, stilt and ribbon dancers...and so much more!

The laser & fireworks shooting robot/astronaut that made an appearance in EVERY superclub I went to haha!

As soon as we got back to the apartments (Space was just down the road) we jumped into the ocean and were joined by newfound friends (a girl who’d been working/partying in Ibiza since May and was starting to get headaches/fainting spells), and a bunch of incomprehensible Scots (one of whom had the most amazing blue eyes I’ve ever seen).

After all the grime, sweat, smoke, black feet and alchohol I was covered in, wading into the gorgeously warm clear water felt like a baptism!  It was so amazingly cleansing.

The path of golden sunlight reflected on the ocean seemed to link me across the water to the muted sun itself, as it rose high into the sky. (Photo captured by Pam)

MAGIC!

Wed 22nd: AMNESIA – Foam Party!

Insanity, absolutely. This time we were joined by Nick, Dani and Pam as well.  The music/dancing up til about 5.45am was great but not amazing like the previous night. There were however a plethora of hot half naked dancers, a hot saxophonist (reminded me of Cargo in Sydney, only MUCH better haha) and a violinist accompanying the house DJs. Got a good shoulder dance from the tallest guy there (6ft 6 possibly?)

When the foam came on, all bets were off *_*

I didn’t bring any cameras, phones etc for a reason!

It shot out of cannons on the balcony – the dance floor was filled with foam!  At some points, I was almost drowning, especially when it came up above my head level (I’m not tall!) – so we went off to the side for a bit, and then rejoined the frivolity.

Violence, shoving, slippery, circle of death with guys ramming eachother (made a new mate Brett who helped Phil ‘protect’ us in the foam)…and it felt like Amy and I were the only 2 girls on the dance floor! Even got another shoulder dance during the water showers inbetween foam, from a buff Brazillian spongebob squarepants – wicked awesome 🙂

It was all crazy but amazing FUN!

Of course, a morning ocean dip ensued – still magic.

Thu 23rd: PACHA – David Guetta & Laidback Luke

This time we were joined by Brett and his mates from Perth.  From our crew it was the usual Phil, Amy and me + Raf.

Great cavernous venue, awesome beats (albeit a little commercial), naked pole dancers and the same giant robot astronaut man who was everywhere!

Another amazing night – followed by another magical morning swim.

PACHA - David Guetta & Laidback Luke - F*** Me I'm Famous! The music was divine!!!

    And all of this on my usual minimal alchohol! Love of the dance!

    My daytimes were full of sleep and beach.

    Ibiza is NOT for lovers, but it definitely = love for me!
