BlogAway with HomeAway

Travel Thursday

Have you heard of HomeAway's BlogAway contest? For each month through September they are offering amenities for a one week getaway to bloggers who have been blogging consistently for the past three months. This month March 14-30 they are offering a week to London during the Royal Wedding to one lucky blogger!

Visit their site to see the rules to enter.

Naturally, I don't really want You to enter, because I want to win! But I think the point of having bloggers enter is to spread the word, naturally... so here is my entry below.

I believe I should win... because aside from witnessing history, and my birthday being 20 days apart from Prince William's. (Mom remembers being pregnant the same time as Princess Di, and watching the Royal Wedding from her tv - how cool would it be to say I was there for new royal couple's wedding!) Also, I would love to return to England to visit my dear friend Sheila who is in her 70's and lives in a little cottage in Harborne.  Since we met in Switzerland 4 years ago through traveling with Cosmos, we've chatted on the phone twice a week about life and movies. (She's the one who once worked for Coco Chanel, as you may have read about Here.)  But also the trip would mean I would get to investigate the English countryside to offer a new PHOTOgraphy Getaway, which couldn't get any better than villages with thatched roof cottages!
