Hi <<First Name>>

Being an introvert, I always need to recharge after a couple of days around people. So where last week I went on four photo walks, one social blogger event and drinks with Nick's colleagues, I am happy that most of this week, I've just been working from home.

I spend my time catching up on work (writing lots of new destination guides and product reviews) and to prepare for more social time next week, when we're having friends from The Netherlands over! 

But, before that, there was one small thing to celebrate though... and that's the fact that yesterday, I turned 3*ugh*5. Nick and I are currently celebrating in the city of Bristol, where we've been invited to board the SS Great Britain (the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854 and currently a museum ship) and are doing not much else than walking, eating (Afternoon Tea!) and taking in the sights, perfect!

I hope you're having a relaxing weekend as well, let me know what you're up to. 

Talk soon,
