Where is Cape Verde? I wasn't too sure myself before i booked my winter escape. Prior to booking I'd heard some great things about Cape Verde  after endlessly searching for breaks to the Maldives i caved in and booked the package deal for West Africa as a 12 hour flight didn't seem worth it for a 7 day break, Cape Verde is 350 miles away from the border of Senegal, still not sure where that is? 2 hours south of the canaries. You got it now? Whilst boarding the same flight as Amy Childs i was convinced i chose the right holiday destination.

Cape Verde was defiantly an eye opener for me whilst staying in the most luxurious hotel on the island, however it was a completely different scenario two minutes down the road empty cobbled streets, small markets, people selling the shoes you probably gave away 4 years ago and hungry stray dogs looking for a spot of shade. I can't say there was much to see however it was lovely to see how content and happy people were considering. I would describe Santa Maria as cultural, colourful with lots of landscape and probably the number one tourism escape from March onwards.
