Holiday Fun

We can finally say summer has well and truly arrived! It's so hot! Hope you've all been enjoying the sun. The TWB girlies have been busy slogging away at work earning our pennies for our much anticipated trip to the USA in September. I've been fortunate enough to escape the life of a waitress for 2 weeks and hop over to central Europe for a mini InterRail trip. You may remember Em travelled round Europe last year and hearing about her adventures made me so desperate to go especially as it's right on our doorstep! We certainly made good use of our 10 day travel pass and visited 7 places in 2 weeks! Myself and two of my lovely girls from home flew to Budapest in Hungry to begin our trip. Next stop was Ljubljana in Slovenia and then onto Lake Bled. We then travelled into Croatia and made our way down the coast from Zadar to Split, over to an island called Hvar, and finally to Dubrovnik. Here are a few of my favourite snaps from along the way...

You meet so many amazing people along the way, either fellow travellers in your hostels and on your trains, or the local people who have such incredbile English! One lady who stands out for me ran her own boutique shop in the maze of Split's Old Town. She was a self taught taylor and sold gorgeous clothes and accessories that she and local designers had handmade. I bought this beautiful clutch bag that was 60Kn, thats less than £8!
Split has so many unique individual shops so if your visiting any time soon, hunt down these hidden gems. You can get some absolute bargains that will always remind you of your travels.  And go and find this lady and her beautiful shop! She is amazing! Click HERE for her Facebook page.

Have you been to these places before? If not, GO! I loved every place we visited, they were all so beautiful and picturesque as well as gorgeous sunny weather! 

Happy Holidays! 

Lots of love
