Usually when it comes to writing posts for competitions I avoid them as they have proved to be fruitless in the past. I made a pact not to do them, however last night I decided to break that pact. Late last night I notice a competition with Transun over on Emmy's Mummy's blog. I was sold at Northern Lights and knew I needed to enter, if it hadn't been so late I would have tapped away at my keyboard right away.
I have traveled to a few countries with my family, and without them. I met my husband in 2006 and already had three children so we have not really had much alone time together as a couple.
The last time we had a night away, never mind traveling together was almost 6 years ago which happened to be our honeymoon in Mexico. There, we visited the Mayan Ruins, swam with Dolphins, came face to face with a huge Parrot Fish and got the pleasure of snorkeling with wild Sea Turtles. I have some amazing memories and loved every part of it.
I would love to travel more and have a bucket list as long as my arm.
My top three destinations are:
The Northern Lights
I am not saying it just because it is the prize, but I have wanted to go and see them for years. I even had my desktop image as the northern lights, up until a cute Spectacled Bear, named Bernardo took its place. The prize is perfect to what we would want to get out of a trip so it is perfect. Every opportunity to see the northern lights in the UK have been a disappointment for us, we never got to see even a hint of the spectacular lights in the sky.
We toyed with the idea of going to Africa on honeymoon but the cost put us off as we were paying for the wedding. This one I may get to for fill in the next few years. I am hoping to study Zoo Management after my Animal Management course is complete. The university I have set my heart on offers the opportunity to spend two weeks in Africa studying the animals out there. I would love to see the animals I love to watch in the zoos and safari parks in their natural habitat. I am not sure how my nerves will hold out at the time but I am sure it will be an experience I will treasure forever.
I would love nothing more than to take my children to Disneyland. They have asked numerous times to go. Daddy2five has been twice when he was younger but as a family we have never had the opportunity or funds to go. One day I will make there dreams come true, I have no idea when but I will get them there!
So that is it, my top three. I have many more that could have easily been in my top three. They will move up when I can tick off, Northern Lights, Africa and Disneyland.
This post is my entry for the Transun competition.
