Mountain Kingdoms Travel Writing Competition

I’m just back from a short (wet) bank holiday break in Gloucestershire. Mountain Kingdoms Travel Writing Competition

Whilst wandering around Wotten-Under-Edge looking for the Town Hall (where tea and cakes were being served) I spotted this competition in a travel agent’s window.

Entry is FREE. Prizes are vouchers for Bob Books. First prize is £75, second £50 and third £30.  ALL entries receive 15% off the usual photo book prices.

Entries should be a minimum of 100 words and be accompanied by a photograph. The judges are looking for either a unique experience, a cultural encounter, a trekking tale or a piece of advice. A selection of entries may be published on Mountain Kingdoms’ website.

Full details are available on the Mountain Kingdoms Blog. Closing date is 30th September 2014.

I don’t think my tale of a wet bank holiday will be a winner – but maybe you’ve been somewhere more exciting?

    Well, in some people’s opinion I live somewhere exciting!

      That’s true, Liz – maybe now is your moment!

    Thanks for that Sally, and hopefully there will be less entries that some competitions. Will bookmark it and have a go. Shame about the weather, and you never know….

      I think you’re right about less entries – good luck with yours!

    But did you find the tea and cakes?

    Talking of tea and cakes and wet Bank Holidays, I was wandering around Leamington Spa that day whilst my husband was bowling there. I had tea and cake for £1 in All Saints’ Church and then listened to a fantastic (and FREE) organ recital there. A wonderful (and cheap) way to spend a wet Monday morning.

      Yes, we found the tea and cakes, Angelique – but I think it was £2.50. So yours in Leamington was a bargain! I hope you had more than one.

        It was quite a large piece, home-made too, but I only had time for one piece before the start of the recital. I did take my husband back the following day though!
