Last Friday, I failed myself… My first rule of blogging is to write your posts in advance and publish over a week or so. I went away by accident and didn’t write enough to cover the trip.
Last Thursday I headed off to a music festival in Stratford upon Avon with a certain special someone. We arrived a day early – the festival wasn’t open yet. Regardless, we camped in an empty field and woke up surrounded by cars.
Queuing for tickets, we quickly realised that they were having a laugh. They were trying to make us pay for our concessionary VIP tickets; alcohol was banned in the campsite; food was also a no go. What kind of festival was this.
Without hesitation, we jumped in the car and headed to a different festival in Knebworth. Upon arrival, we discovered the ticket price…
Desperate for a break, I couldn’t face the thought of another day in London (sorry London). Two hours later we were camping in Kent. The next day we were in Stella Plage, a French holiday resort, one hour from Calais. We were on a sunny beach enjoying a few beers and the warm breeze.
Get away or face a burnout
You realise how easy it is to refresh your mind and body at virtually no cost and with virtually no hassle.
Next time you’re feeling a bit glum, jump on a plane or train and see where the adventure takes you. Just don’t forget to publish your blogs in advance!
