As I write this I’m frantically rushing around trying to wash and re-pack my bags for my next adventure. I’ve been in Egypt for the past week but now it’s time for a different kind of adventure as I’m off on a 9-day trip around Europe!
Side note: Trying to pack light for a European trip between two seasons is very difficult!
I’m one of four blogging reporters for Citadines, a serviced apartment rental company. We’ll be travelling to different European cities and reporting back on our experiences. You can read more about Citadines Moments here to see more about the campaign, the other bloggers involved and the prize. Yes, there’s a prize!
I’ll be travelling to Paris, Lille and Berlin and the other bloggers will also be covering Cannes, London, Barcelona and Brussels.
I’ll be live blogging from my trip so you can follow along daily to see what I’m up to. I usually wait about a week or so before I write about my trips but I’m testing out a new blogging style to include more videos and live posts. I’ve recently bought a new camera which is amazing for videos so I’m keen to play with my new toy!
The apartments I’m staying in look gorgeous. Here’s a sneaky peak:
- Paris – Citadines Tour Eiffel Paris & Citadines Louvre Paris
- Lille – Citadines City Centre Lille
- Berlin – Citadines Kurfürstendamm Berlin
The competition and the prize!
The Citadels Moments 30 trip is all to celebrate Citadels 30th birthday.
They have more awesomeness around the theme of 30 because 30 people can win a holiday to one of their apart’hotels.
Prize #1 – 15 people will win one night for 2 in a European apart’hotel
To win a weekend in the apart’hotel of your choice, you just need to vote for your favourite blogger (pick me, pick me!)
Prize #2 – 1 week in a European apart’hotel for 2 people
There’s an extra prize for someone who voted for the winning blogger. If you voted for the winning blogger you’ve got a chance to win 6-nights for 2 in the Citadines Apart’hotel of your choice in Europe including all transport costs.
You can read all the rules and T&Cs here. The main thing you might like to know is you can vote everyday for extra chances to win.
Travel tips for Paris, Lille and Berlin?
If you have any recommendations for things to see, do, eat. drink or places to play in Paris, Lille and Berlin, please do let me know!
I’ve always found that asking you guys for recommendations is the best way to find hidden gems.
I have three days in each city so enough time to see all the major attractions plus a few off the beaten track ones too.
I haven’t been to Paris since I was 13 with school. At this age I was more interested in chasing boys than soaking up the Parisian vibe so I’m basically a blank canvas.
I’ve never been to Lille so everything there will be new to me too.
I spent a couple of days in Berlin last winter. I took a street art walking tour in Berlin plus the free walking tour and I loved them both but I’d like to see a little more of the city this time.
Any recommendations on a postcard please (or in the comments below!)
