You may already know that Money Supermarket are running a competition to win £1000 to put towards crossing an item off your bucket list, all you need to do is write one budget and another more extravagant bucket list item! You can read more details on it here! So, on to mine!
Extravagant - Paris
Photo by me
I have been to Paris before, however I was younger and didn't fully appreciate the beautiful city. Since then I have admired the French culture and adore the language. One of my best friends and I wanted to go on a trip to Paris this summer, however as we are both students we couldn't afford to go. I would love to organise this trip and go in December, I love Winter and think Paris would be even more breathtakingly beautiful in the cool air and maybe even a bit of snow. There are so many places I would love to visit, I have always wanted to go to Lovers Bridge, well you are in the most romantic city in the world, aren't you? I love this idea and have always dreamed of going. I would love to eat croissants and freshly baked bread for breakfast, drink a coffee and have some macaroons for lunch and just admire one of the most beautiful cities in the world. My friend and I have known each other for years and I would love us to go on our first proper adventure together, she's half french too so I'd have some help with translating...parce que mon français n'est pas trop bon!
Budget - Road Trip
My budget bucket list item is to go on a road trip, in September I start university and my friends are working for a year before they go away to uni, so I know I won't see them as much as I usually do, which is why taking a couple of days away would be so lovely for us to spend some time together. I've wanted to go on a road trip for ages, I have hardly driven anywhere since passing my driving test almost a year ago so it would be nice to go on a little trip! That's my car in the photo, good old Vera, named after Vera Wang of course! I think taking little trips with friends is such a nice idea and I love exploring England as it really is a beautiful country, I would love to travel to Bath or Oxford as it really is so lovely there, especially Bath! Plus what is better than a long car journey with friends, lots of candy and singing along to music!
I tag three people to also do this, if they fancy it!
