I’m not shy to a bit of wanderlust – spending hours on Pinterest lusting over the green forests, the crystal clear waters, the perfect beaches and the endless supply of ‘Places you must visit’ posts. Although chances are I’ll never actually make it to any of these places, a girl can still dream from afar right? Today I have Bella Osborne, author of A Family Holiday talking about 5 places she would most love to visit! And make sure you scroll down to the end of the post for a cheeky little giveaway!
Hi Jenny and thank you for having me on your blog. My latest novel ‘A Family Holiday’ is partly set in a beautiful part of the world so continuing that theme here are my…
Top five Places I would like to visit most and why
Aruba – I love, love, love the Caribbean and I’ve been lucky enough to visit there many times BC (Before Child) but one place I haven’t made it to is Aruba. I hear it’s amazing at New Year as they let off firecrackers in the streets and the fireworks are something to behold so it’s very high on my wish list!
Perth, Australia – My grandmother and her family emigrated when she was just seven but tragically her father died and they had to return to England. I would love to see the area where she lived as it has never been visited by any of my family.
The Rockies, Canada – This is a bit of a cheat as I have already visited the Rockies but I absolutely loved it and I want to take our daughter there when she’s old enough to appreciate the vast beauty of it. Seeing grizzly bears and whales in the wild is something that stays with you for life.
Brazil – When I think of Brazil I think of the diversity of the Rio carnival and the Amazon rainforest. Of all the large waterfalls in the world the Iguazu Falls on the Brazil/Argentina border are the ones that interest me the most. I’ve only seen pictures of this impressive waterfall but it looks stunning and I’d like to experience it for myself.
Monaco – I’ve visited France but never made it down as far as Monaco. Monaco has made it onto my holiday shortlist many times but it’s never made the final cut! I think I might be subconsciously waiting to win the lottery before I go! As a place synonymous with wealth I think it would be best enjoyed with money in your pocket.
Perhaps one day I’ll be able to tick some of these off my list – we can but dream!
About the Book
She’ll do whatever it takes to keep this family together…
As the nanny to four quirky but loveable children, Charlie French has learnt that if there was ever a cement shortage Weetabix would be a viable substitute and that YouTube videos can go viral in seconds, much to her horror. But, most importantly, she’s learnt that whatever happens you stick together as a family.
When tragedy strikes, Charlie is forced to decide whether it’s time to move on or fight to keep the children she loves. With the distraction of the children’s gorgeous Uncle Felix and the chance of a holiday in stunning Antigua, she’s left wondering if turquoise seas can wash away their present troubles. Is the pull of white sand beaches too tempting to resist or will paradise fail to keep them all together?
A gorgeous summery beach read, perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Carole Matthews and Jill Mansell.
