What Happens When...

Sunday, January 08, 2017

I was going to wait a few days to post this. Let it sink in and properly introduce you to my new blog in the meantime but, even two days on I am still freaking out and I want to scream it from the rooftop. 

So, what happens when Thomson tweet you saying they want to give you £1,000 in vouchers to go on holiday?

YOU FREAK OUT!!!

Yes, you read that right. I recently received a tweet from the official Twitter account for Thomson, completely out of the blue, who after hearing I'd not been on holiday for almost 4 years (I did not realise it had been this long!) wanted to give me a holiday 'on them' in the form of £1,000 worth of vouchers to use as I wish.



How I managed to console myself and not combust into thousand of little pieces, I will never know. How this has happened to little old me, Jess from Leicester who has never been aboard, who has only flown once, who has only ever dreamt of sipping cocktails by the pool and being surrounded by palm trees. HOW HAS THIS HAPPENED?

I honestly have no idea. I just can not believe it and I don't think I will until those vouchers slide through my letterbox and even then, even when I'm waiting to board our plane, even when we're checking into our hotel, even when I'm sat by the pool side sipping on cocktails... Even then I don't think I'll quite believe it.

Of course, the question now is. Where the hell do we go?!

Other than Ireland (which isn't really "aboard") I've never really wanted to go anywhere. Of course, I would absolutely love to go back over to Ireland, to discover more of the beautiful emerald islands but now having the chance to enjoy a bit of sun, which would certainly make my consultant happy, I have absolutely no idea where I'd like to go.

So please, if you have any suggestions, any recommendations of where to go tweet me or leave a comment. I WANT ALL YOUR SUGGESTIONS!!

  3. Oh wow Jess! Congratulations, I'm over the moon for you. Very much deserved!! Its not a well know place but I loved Tossa De Mar, where you can access Barcelona for a day trip if you like that sort of thing. Or there's Fuerteventura in the Canarys, another nice one for sun. All depends on what else you'd like to do! So much choice - good luck haha!

    1. Aww, thanks hun. That really means a lot. I'm not sure if "deserved" is the right word but I am incredibly grateful for this great opportunity. Barcelona sure looks incredible so I'll pop it on our list with Fuerteventura. I just want lots and lots of sun! x

  6. That is amazing Jess and what a lovely thing for Thomsons to do for someone! To give someone happiness like that is so nice. Spain is my second home so I'd say there but I know you'll have the best time wherever you go!

    1. Funnily enough, we're currently looking at Spain. The other half has travelled a lot so I'm leaving the decision up to him, let's hope he makes the right decision, haha x

  7. Wow! I bet this made your day. I'd recommend Majorca, or one of the Greek Islands - Lindos on Rhodes is particularly stunning! Hope you have the best time ever, I bet it will be amazing. I look forward to seeing where you end up!

    1. It certainly has, hun. Thank you so much for the recommendation, I'm finding it so overwhelming. So many beautiful places to see. x

  8. Wow! You must be so excited as that is very generous of them. I've not been abroad for nearly 10 years (never realised its been that long, how depressing!) so I can't tell you the best places to go but if I was in your position it would be New York, Las Vegas or Florida. Have a fantastic time wherever you decide to go :) xx

    1. Thank you ever so much, hun. Florida (or America in general) is definitely on my list but unfortunately my health isn't great at the moment so a long haul flight is out of the question. I hope you manage to get a bit of sun soon xx

  9. That's amazing news! I wouldn't know where to start with choosing, but I know I'd have a lot of fun researching! I'm sure wherever you pick will be lovely - enjoy! :D
