Challenge Carrie Blogtember - Time Off

I've decided that September is going to be a month of Challenges. I need to have things that are achievable, but that I will still need to put a focus on them and push myself so my 3 Challenges are;
1) Starting on Monday I will work through the 30 day Shred Plan. Our holiday will be 10 weeks away so by doing this I will hopefully kick start my body into shape with plenty of time!
2) I am going to learn to speak Dutch. The OH is fluent and after our weekend in Holland I know this is a country that we will be returning to frequently. There are really difficult pronunciations to learn so in September I want to be able to recite the alphabet, count to 20 and be able to say basic phases.
3) I am going to take part in BLOGTEMBER...20 posts in the month. I realise that I have already missed the first day but I will hopefully be able to catch up with this post in the next week or so. More information on the daily prompts can be found here.
Today's prompt is - if you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?
I would definitely travel! I sometimes feel that I missed out on having a gap year before going to University and since then my travels have been limited mostly to Europe. So I would book a round the world ticket and visit these spots...
The Southern States of America - Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi. I would love to hire a car and spend time driving through this area, stopping off in lots of different towns along the way

Copenhagen- Look how beautiful it is!!

The Maldives - Sometimes you just need to lie on a beach and do nothing but enjoy the view. I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather do this!

Borneo - I love orang-utans so I would have to go to Borneo and spend time in a conservation centre trying to do my bit to keep these guys safe.
Image from
New Zealand - I do like a good walk and New Zealand must have some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
I think that would probably take up most of the three months, if I did have any time left over where else do you suggest I go to?


  1. New Zealand is a place I'd love to visit, too! It does look like a beautiful and interesting place. I like your plan... it's very diverse!! :)

  2. i loved the 30 day shred! it's really challenging, but definitely do-able! you can do it!!

  3. New Orleans, Louisiana that is a very interesting place to head to. I visited there this summer and the food is just amazing. There is such a difference in culture.

  4. I just found your blog through Jenni from the link up and I just have to say that I LOVE the title of your blog! It totally caught my eye (although I did ask to myself "why?"). Haha :)

    Good luck with the 30 Day Shred! I've tried it so many times and never ever reach 30 days!

  5. It's definitely pretty here in New Zealand, I hope you get to visit us some day :)

    Good luck with all your plans and challenges!

  6. Greece! It's so pretty! You would love it there! Also, nice touch with the over water bungalows! I would love that!
