#Competition: Win a 7-day European holiday!

Win a holiday to EuropeI’m really, really excited about this competition because it’s only open to readers of Ssi-ch! (Yes, you won’t be competing against hundreds of thousands of people!)

Do you remember earlier this month I was travelling around Paris, Lille and Berlin with Citadines? I was taking part in a blogger competition and was doing my best to (not so) subtlety encourage you all to vote for me. And now I want to say a massive, massive, massive thank you to everyone who did because I WON!!


My prize was a 7-day holiday in Europe but I’m really not sure when I’ll have time to take the holiday – more on the reason for this coming soon!

So I thought, why not give the prize away to someone who reads this blog to say thank you for reading, following and voting.
