Day 2 – My last holiday destination!

So day two of my little blog challenge I made was to describe the last holiday I went on! I love talking about holidays as much as I love going on them and I also love to read other bloggers describe their holidays as well so I thought this would be a good one to add to the challenge when I was thinking it up. So without further ado…

My last holiday destination was: Gran Canaria!

So lets start with the basics – where is it? if you didn’t already know then Gran Canaria is part of the canary islands which is a little off the coast of north west Africa but the island themselves are apart of Spain. So what was is like? Well it was like paradise! The weather when we got their was surprisingly lovely for January, we only had rain I think one night for the whole week we were there and the rest of the time it was hot but there was also a constant breeze which made it bearable.

It took a while to get to Gran Canaria by plane approx I think 4 hours and 30 minutes (it isn’t the longest flight I’ve ever been on but it was still tough!) I get unsettled and then I have to move around but I generally do enjoy flights, on the flight as well I was quite anxious because it was the first holiday we had booked all alone, done ourselves and paid for and it was just going to be the two of us in a different country so I was a bit anxious! but luckily all went to plan smoothly and once we arrived it was night time there, we got off the plane and found out coach to go to the resortΒ and off we went.

Booking into our resort was easy enough, we got our room card and got told all the essentials and we went to find our room in the night time darkness with all the other holiday makers following suit. Like I said it was dark so we didn’t see much of the resort that night for obvious reasons but in the morning we were just blown away by how beautiful it was and how comfortable we felt there – Plus we had a random cute kitten outside our apartment every night which was adorable!

We went all inclusive so we got breakfast, lunch and dinner and late night snacks and drinks all included which was lovely. Every night after dinner we tended to go watch the entertainment for the night and have a few drinks and such which was lovely and then throughout the week we did some other little exciting bits like finding the beach, exploring the city, playing mini golf and eating at a panorama sea view restaurant and seeing the famous sand dunes!

But that was mine and my partner’s last holiday all wrapped up for you, I hope you enjoyed it! I thought I would wrap it up now because I could just go on forever πŸ™‚

So I hope you’ll be around for tomorrows post on day 3 which is 5 things I dislike!

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 16 A BOOK

So day 16 is a book and I thought that I would take a little picture of my first aid book because like I said in a previous post I want to be able to learn first aid by the end of this year, I’m hoping to do a course later on this year to gain a certificate to say I know first aid properly but reading this book helps and gives me a head start. Further to this my dad actually loaned it to me so it means a lot in some senses πŸ™‚

15 Things Questions!

I’ve seen a lot of these question posts around and I thought I would take a crack at it as it’s an excellent way to get to know someone more! I couldn’t find one online that I liked enough to do & I prefer to make up my own questions most of the time, so I thought up my own questions gathered from online and my imagination and put it in a little blog post! πŸ™‚

  1. Hair style? – Mid length straight hair with a side fringe.
  2. Make-up style? – Natural/minimal
  3. Favourite colour? – Green
  4. Favourite food? – That’s super hard! Lasagne & Garlic bread I’d have to say right now
  5. Reading? – I love it!
  6. Smoke? – Nope
  7. Drink? – Not really, I rarely ever drink (surprising for a student I know)
  8. Restaurants or Bars? – Restaurants = food! πŸ™‚
  9. Favourite animal? – Great White Shark
  10. Cats or Dogs? – Dogs! I wish I had a puppy 😦
  11. Twitter or Facebook? – Both?
  12. Hobbies? – Blogging, reading, gaming, watching movies etc etc…
  13. Fears? – Spiders, the dark (sometimes!), creepy people.
  14. Starter or dessert? – Dessert I love cake in general πŸ™‚
  15. An accomplishment this year so far? – Made new blogging friends & started blogging more!

So that was 15 little questions I made up to give you all more insight into what kind of person I am, hope you enjoyed it and if you feel like doing it too then go for it! Let me know if you do, so I can check out yours. Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

5 Things I Want To Learn By End Of This Year!

So I thought I would do a little post about 5 things I want to learn/do by the end of this year & I thought this would make a good post because we all have goals and such in life and completing them makes us happy right? Well the things I am about to list are things that if I accomplished this year I would feel super happy about doing! πŸ™‚

  1. Learn and gain a certificate in general first aid.
  2. Learn and gain a certificate in paediatric (children’s) first aid.
  3. Take my theory test.
  4. Start learning to drive.
  5. Gain and complete work experience.

Well hopefully by the end of this year all five of these things will be ticked off and I will be putting posts up if I get round to completing and doing any of them to let you all know! πŸ™‚

Is there any goals you have to complete before the end of this year?

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 3 TECHNOLOGY

Hey everyone!

I just want to firstly say a massive thank you to the recent new followers, the followers who have been there from the beginning and the ones who joined along the way! Your support for my growing blog has been immense and I am so grateful there are people who appreciate what I write & enjoy looking at my blog πŸ™‚

I have received many comments over the past few days and they have all been so lovely! So thank you and please keep it up because I love to hear what you all think and if you’re enjoying it πŸ™‚

Anyway moving on! Yesterday was day 3 of the photo challenge, I didn’t get to upload this yesterday because for some reason my WordPress wouldn’t load! But success because today it did and I am here writing this post! πŸ™‚ So choosing something that represents technology was tough because I didn’t want to go for the cliche things but after much deliberation I decided that the best photo is my iPhone background.

My iPhone is something I use everyday, I think to me it represents that technology has come so far considering the past that now everyone can have a piece of a growing industry themselves, not only this but I think it represents the amount of people that are technologically advanced nowadays and the growth in consumerism.

Well hope you enjoyed my 3rd photo, day 4 will be up tonight and it’s a pet/animal!
