Half of July: Friday Figments, photos and a #travellinkup topic

Coming out of June, I sent myself into a touch of self-imposed exile. Enjoying quiet nights on the couch, catching up on movies, reading a few favourite books, dreaming up and organizing a few future adventures. Plus getting that pesky wifi connection fixed.

Lasted all of two days (I always was a fidgeter) the exile morphed into a cornucopia of travel envy, cocktails in summer sunshine, catching up with good friends and laughter, immersive theatre experiences, dreamy dates with my much suffering husband and drinking on the Underground (well, sorta).

London, summer is yours.

We've also announced August's Travel Linkup Theme - this month we thought we could explore the travel contrasts we experience whilst travelling; East vs. West, online vs. offline, luxury vs. budget, beach tanning vs. culture vultures, skyscrapers vs. cottages, biscuits vs. cookies. Posts are up 1st - 7th August and all you need to do is add your published post to the widget at the end of mine, Kelly'sRebecca's or on our lovely co-host Zoe from Love and Limoncello blog posts.

Now, I'm off to meet a friend for last minute training (read: carb loading) for Sunday's 5km Race for Life supporting Cancer Research. Wish us luck!
