23rd July 2016: 65 days to go...β˜€οΈ It is all starting to get very real now. Today I paid for half of our holiday. I think that had to be the single largest purchase I have made in my 17 years so far. I would be lying if I didn't say it left a very large hole in my pocket πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³... However, back to the point, I have somehow managed to remember to book just about everything we are going to need. Our flights, our bags, booked transport to and from the hotel in Barbados and I even remembered to upgrade our seats with the Avios mum and Kirsty gained from their trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles πŸΉπŸŒ΄πŸ‘Œ Mum keeps saying that she would have been disappointed in me had I not remembered to book everything to a 'T', all considering I think she's the best holiday planner on the globe 🌎 All that is left for me now is to pay of the rest of the money, print off the itinerary for Audrey and Ron, print off the vouchers we will need and to remember to reserve our flight seats the week before... ✈️
Tuesday 12th July: 76 days to go...β˜€οΈ There aren't many secrets I keep from Mark, but this secret is the best present I could think of πŸ™ŠπŸŽWhen we began looking for holidays, I had never intended to book a holiday and then make it a surprise. But this year has passed so quickly and we still hadn't found anywhere to go, so me being the slightly crazy and adventurous person that I have been told I am, booked a holiday to the Caribbean on a complete whimπŸ—ΊβœˆοΈπŸŒŽLooking back on the phone call I had with the British Airways representative, I must have sounded beyond insane. Who at 17 books a holiday for a couple of young adults to one of the most gorgeous places to visit? As it turns out... apparently I do. God help me..! πŸ˜‚
Tuesday 12th July: 76 days to go...β˜€οΈ We are finally going! From years of chat and talk, months of searching and weeks of planning, we are finally going abroad together! πŸŽ‰I've just booked the holiday of a lifetime for Mark and myself. Ten weeks on Sunday we are of to the sunny island of Barbados for 10 days!! The Caribbean!! 🍹To say that I am beyond excited would be putting it mildly. Every single detail has been meticulously planned out and carefully thought about. Well apart from the most exciting part... Mark has no idea where we are going πŸ™ŠπŸŽ‰πŸΉπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈ
