Welcome to Unpacking, the post where I offload my adventures. I also include my journey to super runner (one day) and what I have been watching on TV and at the cinema. Other entries can be found here.
Those who follow The Sarah Story closely will have noticed that I missed my unpacking post last week. I do apologise, but I could summarise the post in one sentence: I had a bad wisdom tooth and I spent Easter week in bed. Not the most exciting of weeks I’ll admit.
The week following was much more exciting. It included a lot of eating out with friends, a 10k, the festival of colour and a trip to Cardiff.
I travelled to Cardiff early on Friday morning, for the top travel blogging conference, Traverse. It was held at Cardiff City Stadium and I found an Airbnb property close by. It was a great spot; I ended up with a four poster bed.
Oh look, Wanderluce and The Sarah Story are reunited at long last
As always, I learned plenty and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more about that soon. I do always leave these conferences on a bit of a downer because I feel inferior to all the large names that attend and share how wonderful and successful they are. On a brighter note, I came away inspired and I hope and plan to share more on this website rather than my usual feeble attempts at a weekly round up.
The week began with a 10k with Leah. After a week of being ill and not really doing anything at all, I was happy to complete the race. My time was shocking and I don’t even want to share it (ok, it was above 57 minutes), but after the week I’d had, I was over the moon to be able to finish.
After our running escapades, we popped into Belfast to throw coloured powder at each other. After my run, I was already a little cranky and add some organised fun on top of that…
I didn’t smile for any of the pictures, but it wasn’t all bad… I promise!
Thanks to Laura for the photo and to Leah for taking it!
I didn’t eat much the previous week (did I tell you I was ill?!), but I made up for it this week with two visits to Eddie Rockets and a sneaky cake grab at Miel et Moi. Nom.
To finish, I had my first article published in print (that made the front page). I wrote a piece about my experiences at school in response to a news article and it was wonderful to see it received so well (no trolls yet!).
I hope you all have a wonderful week – let me know what you are all doing x
