#MyFavouriteTrip Linky: On a Summer break


Apologies if you came here on Thursday looking to link up with #MyFavouriteTrip. The past week I've had many sleepless nights, an ongoing backlog of work, a faulty laptop (meaning everything takes twice as long) and many half-finished blog posts I want to publish. I was planning on taking a break from the linky in August but I've decided to bring it forward. Anyone who hosts a linky will know how time-consuming it is. It takes several hours each week commenting on blogs and promoting the linky and at the moment I just don't have enough time to fit it all in unfortunately. Along with working and looking after an active little boy, I've also committed myself to some projects over the summer which means I don't have as much time as I did before. Plus, it's always nice to have a break and come back feeling refreshed isn't it!

I do love reading all the travel posts from those who've linked up since the beginning of this year and I want to thank everyone for bringing my travel inspiration back! I have a very exciting holiday booked for next month (another reason why I'm busy) which I'll be writing about soon. I also have many more travel posts on recent trips to come. So, I'll still be blogging but #MyFavouriteTrip will be back in September. Until then, if you're looking for some travel inspiration have a look through the #MyFavouriteTrip series :-)

My Favourite Trip #21

Welcome to #MyFavouriteTrip week 21! Apologies for not posting last week. I've been having ongoing problems with my computer so had to take it in for repair and was without it for a week, not so great when you're working as a freelancer. I'll have to take it in again for a second time next week but hopefully it will be fixed soon! Modern technology hey! Thanks to everyone who linked up last time. It's always a pleasure to read so many diverse posts. As I missed a week I'll be featuring two posts today and I'll be announcing the monthly winner tomorrow.

The first featured post is...




This post is about a typical market scene in Split, Croatia. If you haven't read this already please do because it sums up the essence of travel and communication perfectly. It's such a simple yet memorable story and I love Lauren's beautiful writing style.
