Enigmatic Cabo Verde – February 2015
Cabo Verde, the still rather unknown collection of Islands, located East of Senegal & Gambia, is something of a gem. We booked a week here the day after my mother’s wedding (frankly needing a holiday to recover from the stress of it all!) and got a fabulous deal I have to say. Before I get onto that, briefly the flights were about £400 each – it’s almost 8 hours, but is somehow crazily classed as short haul – so it’s the zone of budget airlines & airbuses, for the longest time they can just about get away with – not pleasant. I presume it will be the same with Gambia that I’m keen to try – although a friend of mine, Ms C, advises they are a little anti-gay, so needs more research.
