Default The most ridiculous reason why you HAVE to visit PP

So I was speaking with Lorenzo yesterday bemoaning the fact that I was to fly home today and my next visit wasn't scheduled until July - which is far to long to wait.

I then hit upon a great excuse to return - I had a white plastic chair that needed cleaning and so I decided I would need to return in May to clean the chair

This got us wondering what other daft excuses we all dream up

So who can beat cleaning a chair ?

Some friends bought us a lovely wooden Ghekko (Gordon obvs) after their Summer visit, and we had hung him on one of outside balcony walls. When I read the weather was very stormy in PP we flew out for a long weekend in February to rescue him in case he blew away!

Lamest excuse ever but it had to be done ☺️

We have gone out 'to do some watering'. This, in the middle of the rainy season.

Well - the winter/early Spring, when it does usually rain a bit!

Because they serve my Gin and tonic in a long glass rather than a huge "bowl" in my local at home! Urgh! Best excuse I can think of for heading back out asap!

I lost a 1 cent piece whilst waking along the beach from Llenaire to La Gola, I have to go back and find it, I can't afford to go around throwing money away like that.
If you see a man scouring that section of beach in May please stop and help.

My bet is that tomorrow's web cams will show about 500 people on the beach staring down intently!!!

To make sure various barmen don't forget how to make a great Brandy Alexander!

Last year on returning from PP I realised I had left my "English" wallet in our apartment with all my cards. I flew back to get my bus pass after one week!!

I was sorry to read that Hamcas lost his 1 cent piece on the beach, so along with the other 500 people I would like to do the same neighbourly act and go and help him find it.
