Travel | Šamorín, Slovakia

I've talked about wanting to travel more this year and I mentioned in my last Life Update that we were going on our first family holiday in 5 years!!

I didn't actually take many pictures of the day we arrived but our holiday began on Sunday 31st with a short 2-hour flight from Stansted Airport to Bratislava.

We visited some family and had some traditional Slovakian food (I wasn't really a fan, I'm a VERY fussy eater), just before an absolutely massive storm hit. It was definitely the worst I've ever seen. It was a little cloudy and then all of a sudden it started pouring with rain and then came the thunder and lightning, with lightning strikes only meters from where we were attempting to take cover.

These are only some of the pictures I took, I think I'll try and do a second post with some more pictures at some point.

The second day of our trip was spent in Bratislava. We hopped on a little bus (actually more like a coach) from Šamorín to Bratislava Bus Station before heading to Staré Město to visit Slavín, a memorial and cemetery for Soviet Army soldiers. Definitely worth a visit!

We then headed back towards the city centre and had a little look at some stalls before taking a little tour of some of the city where we also got to pay a quick visit to Bratislava Castle.

Anna Saccone || Anna Saccone


This month's blogger pick is the lovely Anna Saccone of the SacconeJolys!

I started following Anna's blog (Anna Saccone) during her pregnancy with Emilia but I didn't start watching their vlogs until shortly after she was born, and I my friends was obsessed.
What am I talking about, I still am. I love the Sacconejolys! I try not to watch them everyday because I like to let them build up so that I can binge watch them all at once!

I've been meaning to do a little feature on Anna for while but I never got round to it. Then I heard about all the problems she's been having since her miscarriage (Miscarriage at 11 Weeks), and then she made this video (Why I Quit Youtube) and I just wanted to cry.

People can be so mean and hurtful to others (especially those who are successful) and it just isn't acceptable, regardless of who you are. So I thought now is definitely the right time to join in with everyone that's sending blue hearts to Anna by doing this post and saying that Anna is an amazing woman and mother and to wish her all the best and to never give up!
