Hello everyone, sorry I've been a bit quiet on the blog recently, we have had a lot going on recently, which I am sure I will be writing about soon. Me and Spud have escaped down to Cornwall to see my Mum, his Nana for the Easter break. It's also a opportunity to enjoy some time together before his operation at the end of April.
My Mum moved to Cornwall last March (2013) and this is our third time visiting, Mum never liked Reading much and always vowed to live by the coast one day, her wish finally happened and Mum, her partner of 14 years and my little sister G who's 12 made the escape last year. Prior to Mum moving down here, I'd visited the county on previous holidays as a little girl, but the sights and scenery are never a interest when you're a small child.
Now, as a 23, soon to be 24 year adult, it's not the arcades and toy shops that attract my attention, it's the beautiful colours of the sea, the greenery around us, and even the local history. History was always my favourite subject at school and a subject that has been a interest of mine even in my adult years, now I always like to visit local tourist spots and history destinations.
When I see a fun interactive quiz on Parkdean's website called ''Home or Away?'' the challenger deep inside me had to give it a go, well of course the competition to win a Parkdean seven night stay also enticed me in. The quiz shows you two beautiful photo's of different holiday hot spots, and the quiz entrants job is to decide what photo is from the UK (home).
Know your Newquay from Nice? Take the Home or Away Quiz to be in with a chance of winning a UK family holiday worth £750 with Parkdean Holidays.
The quiz is rather hard, you're given two photo's, two beautiful scenery photo's and to know that one of these images are from a UK destination is hard to believe. Too many of us, myself included prefer to jump across the planet for a bit of sunshine, but choosing the right season and time of year, you really can have a beautiful, relaxing holiday here at home - the UK.
I took the quiz and scored 308 points ranking me 467 in the overall score leader board. Considering this is not something you can cheat, where a search engine cant help you due to the 10 second timer, I think I done quite well. Why don't you take just a few minutes and take the quiz to see how your UK knowledge adds up? Of course you'll also have the chance to enter the competition to win a seven night stay at one of Parkdean's 24 UK destinations - a holiday at home!
Until next time,
