Calling All Travel Bloggers! (#60)

I had a spectacular day for many reasons, one being I found out I’ll be working in Essex, England this summer. I’m both terrified and absolutely ecstatic about the opportunity. It’s a 10 week internship and I plan to make the most of every second. My employers have already told me I’ll be working 4 day weeks and given the long weekend to travel.

This is where you come in.

I would love help building an itinerary for a European adventure. I know three days isn’t nearly enough time to really immerse myself and explore hidden gems some of these countries hold. There will be plenty for me to do in England and would also love some advice as to what to see and do this summer there. This really is a dream come true and I’m grateful to have this opportunity this summer.


Today I’m grateful for…

  1. Sleeping in
  2. Friends from BSU
  4. New experiences
  5. A day off from work tomorrow
  6. 1:1s with my Peer Mentors
  7. Trying new foods
  8. The warmth of the sun today, it felt like summer
  9. Talking about camp
  10. Healthy eating
  11. Fruit smoothies
  12. Walking to class with Carley
  13. The Universe

  15. Sharing passions and little joys
  16. Growing up close to my friend PJ
  17. Summer pickup soccer
  18. My family
  19. Peanut butter sandwiches and naps
  20. Progress
  21. Eggs and ketchup
  22. Time to breath
  23. Lessons learned
  24. Contagious smiles
  25. Today

  1. An amazing opportunity. Make sure you visit Wales, Ireland and Scotland! In particular Edinburgh and North Wales and Pembrokeshire coast. These are perfect for weekend getaways. If your looking for somewhere further afield Prague is amazing! Hope this helps.

  2. Such an amazing opportunity! I would say visit the Lake District, it has some amazing views and it’s just a beautiful place to visit. London would be a definite embrace the city, take a tour bus round all the significant places! I hope you have a fab time! I’m sure you will! Don’t work too hard x

  3. Congratulations Drake! This sounds like a killer opportunity. I most certainly recommend that ou visit Paris! You can take the Eurostar for cheap if you plan ahead and it takes two hours or less to emerge on the other side of the English Channel.

    I believe someone mentioned Prague and Ireland which I completely agree with! Getting to Europe is the hardest part, after that there are so many destinations at you fingertips for a reasonable price.

    Cheers and congratulations! Holler if you’re ever in Paris.
