23 Days...

..till I jet off to Spain for 2 weeks!

I am SO excited. Ok, I need to tell you a little story so you'll hopefully understand my excitement a little more.. (if you don't want to read my rambling, skip down to the end.. there is a point to this post!)

Until last year, I'd never been out of the country. Yes, it's true. I'd never flown or been abroad & the most North of the UK I'd been was Staffordshire. (About half way up the map of the UK & I live at the bottom) I'd been with my boyfriend for a year last Spring, so we discussed going on holiday together in the Summer. Gords' Dad had recently retired & moved to Spain, so he suggested we go visit & stay with him for a week during September. We worked out it would probably be the cheapest & most affordable holiday to do, as we wouldn't have to pay for accommodation, just some money towards food. I was so excited & got my passport sorted within the next week, went for my interview to prove I was me & we booked our flights. I have to say it was the most amazing holiday I've been on. Not just because I got to spend it with my boyfriend, but because it was the first holiday I'd got to totally relax in a hot country. I got to experience a whole new language (I studied Spanish for 5 years at secondary school, that doesn't mean to say I remember alot of it..), to fly in a plane, try new foods & sunbathe all day! I'm kind of used to going on walking holidays with my parents, they're more into the whole 'doing stuff' on holiday than relaxing, so it was nice for a change!

Anyway, so this year we're going back to visit Gords' Dad, but for 2 weeks instead of 8 days! Yayyy. I get to fly again, sunbathe on the beach & spend time with my boy before he goes back to uni in September & our seeing each other goes down to once every 3 weeks / month at a time. : (

RIGHT, on to the actual point of this post!  

While I'm away for 2 weeks I need to keep my blog up & running as much as possible (without being here). I'm not taking my laptop with me so I need some guest bloggers please! I would love some of you to post on my blog & the post can be what ever you want it to be about. If you want some ideas, maybe start with the basics: introduction, outfit post, you're favourite things you love? I know I know, I'm crap at topics so I'm leaving it up to you!

I'd need all the posts by Sunday 28th August so I can set them up for when I go away on 31st August. So if you'd like to be a guest blogger on my blog, please send me your blog posts (by e-mail) with your name, blog link & with any additional pictures or links included. I'll let you know by 28th if your post will be appearing over the 2 weeks. I'd love for you all to get involved, even if you've just started blogging. : D

If you've got any questions, leave them in a comment below or e-mail me. Thaaanks girls! : D

  6. Emily - I'll miss our days too, we'll oragnise something before I go away. The blog entry can be anything you like. I thought introductory posts would probably be the easiest, but if you have an idea you want to run past me, go for it. :D xx

    Rosy - I'll make sure I take loads of pictures & travel loads in the future! When my mum said to me 'Why are you going back to the one foriegn place you've been, why not go somewhere else, you have a passport now, you can go anywhere!' True what she says, but I loved Spain so much! I'll try & branch out a bit next year. :) xx
