We had 2 weeks in Lanzarote and the change in environment/routine affected John dreadfully and all he wanted to do was come home. He was so distressed. Eventually he decided to stay as I think the thought of dragging the children home early or travelling back (and on to his sisters) with a stranger was a worse option than sticking it out. Luckily for him the distress he suffered has now passed from his mind and he thinks we had a great holiday! I however, have come home more stressed than when I went, only saving grace is that the boys had a lovely time.
