After Laine flew back to the land of Aus, I had one week of down time until our final Summer adventure – Croatia.
I was feeling a bit deflated, from saying goodbye and also realising I was down to my absolute last dollars (and pounds) and the English weather was not helping. It rained every day, the heating came on and I was sleeping in Winter pj’s – how ridiculous!
I went to the gym every day to lift my spirits and got a job trial lined up for the week after Croatia, so with the prospect of a week in the sun and a potential new job I was getting pretty pumped for life again.
And just in time for V Festival!
I’d bought tickets to V fest as soon as I’d arrived in the UK, it’s a 2 day music festival held in Hylands Park in Chelmsford, perfect location! Unfortunately Geo had to work but Laura and Bree got tickets as well and were ready for a big weekend!
We saw so many acts including: Justin Timberlake, The Killers, Ed Sheeran, Bastille, Lily Allen, Rudimental, Kaiser Cheifs, Tom Odell, Train, Jason Derulo, Sam Smith, Chase and Status, Rita Ora, Icona Pop and Vance Joy.
It only rained a little bit on the second day so we were really lucky!
All in all it was a great weekend and an awesome mood lifter! The following week was spent catching up on sleep, having a couple more job interviews and getting ready for Croatia!
Bring on that Sunshine
