Our MD, Robert Mackenzie visits Ibiza 40 years on from his last trip

The first and only time I visited Ibiza, prior to last summer, was 40 years’ ago when as an impoverished student I, together with a few pals, decided a week in San Antonio was just what we needed to celebrate graduation. Needless to say, over the years memories have faded of this particular trip – however safe to say time was mainly spent enjoying the nightlife rather than exploring the island.
