Welcome to our May Monthly summary 2017!
This month has been full steam ahead! We have been getting things together for our visa, making (and attempting to work our way through) long to do lists and of course, winning the league.
We started the month exploring the City of Liverpool, visiting the Albert Dock and enjoying The Beatles Story. We also took a trip up to Birmingham for the last away game of the season – and also the game that Chelsea won the league = Calum was very happy.
Blog Numbers and Goals
Yeah this month we massively failed our three blogs a week target! I think we just about posted 1 a week! However, our 32 cheapest destinations post was popular, which is great!
Our page views and users have been consistent to the last few months even though we did have 2.5 days of down time on the website – stupid hosting! This has been sorted and our website is running much faster at last!
Love and Hate
This month I have been reading all types of blogs and making my bucket list even bigger.
Cost of Travel in Namibia – Namibia has been a place I have wanted to visit for so long and Lauren’s cost guide has been a massive help. Need to start planning!
Top Railway Journeys in the world – In my attempt to be more open minded to different types of travel, I have been reading more and more about train travel and cruises. Tracy’s top 10 list has introduced me to train rides I didn’t even know existed.
Disney World Bar Crawl Guide – So I am a big kid at heart but one thing massively missing from Disney trips is the alcohol = and in comes the amazing guide that is definitely bookmarked for our next trip.
Sri Lanka Bucket List – I have had my eye on Sri Lanka for a while now and this post has made me want to go even more!
This month I have also had wanderlust envy over blogger friend Elizabeth’s amazing trip around Bali – so much so I have planned a Christmas trip to the island! Check out her Instagram above.
It deeply saddens me to think and acknowledge the horrific events in Manchester last week. As a teacher, it makes me sick to my stomach to think of young children involved in this attack and reminds us to be kind and care for one another. So I won’t be sharing hate, there is too much of it in the world.
Highlight of the month
I can’t not include winning the League as a massive highlight this month! We loved being there in West Brom for the game that won us the title and Calum was chuffed to catch John Terry’s boot! We then enjoyed celebrating at the last few games of the season.
Top Instagram Post
Our most popular Instagram shot this month and my fave too – Calum’s beautiful shot of Marina Bay in Singapore.
June is already stressing me out! It marks two months before we move and there is still SO much to do! We are in the final stages of our Visa and have started the purchasing of random stuff we will need on the other side of the world.
I am sure I will squeeze in a few travel planning evenings too!
Right, so that is our monthly summary for May!
