So I saw recently that Ocean Finance were running a competition in order to win a dream experience in relation to a Second Time Lucky and was really intrigued to find out some more. I had a look on their website which showed the rules of the competition and the entries so far that had the most votes. I saw a lot of people talking about having to put their wedding off or not getting to go on a trip somewhere special and found it really heartwarming that a lot of people had missed out on special days or chances but now might get the chance to win their dream.
This spurred me to write my own blog post about a Second Time Lucky that I would love to have. My boyfriend and I work incredibly hard in our jobs in order to have a great future and be able to enjoy our life and hopefully start a family one day. Because we work so hard now, we sometimes miss out on things like trips because we are forever thinking “We should be saving this money, not spending!” A lot of people our age wouldn’t mind just spending the money or booking a trip but we are very money conscious right now and have to be strict.
My Second Time Lucky would be to treat my boyfriend to a city break somewhere we haven’t been in Europe (which is pretty much everywhere in Europe haha!) We have both talked about visiting somewhere like Amsterdam, Paris or Rome as we like a bit of history and culture and absolutely LOOOOVE food!!!
If we had the chance to go away somewhere I think it would be an amazing break and time together as we currently both live with our parents so time together is quiet precious. I would love to treat him to a nice hotel, good food and good wine, and also get to experience some good culture and see some sights. If we could go to a hotspot for food and have a few drinks in an amazing bar, we both would be over the moon. It’s also our 7 year anniversary this year after meeting at college at 17 so this would be a lovely way to celebrate it.
