My first holiday abroad was when I was 7 years old.
My parents, brother, aunt and I all got onto a plane to Kenya for a two-part trip! We started with blue

on the beach. After our stay in beachy bliss we went to stay in the Masai Mara, a vast wildlife reserve, for an incredible safari-stay spotting wildlife in a
Perhaps this is what sparked my love for travelling. We saw lions, zebras, elephants, hyenas, leopards, and all sorts of beautiful animals. Seeing 12
lions, in the wild, sleeping in a row is definitely going to spark some

I was recently contacted about a competition by Mercedes-Benz where the prize is a safari holiday for two in South Africa. Runners up get an off-road 4×4 experience courtesy of Mercedes-Benz too! The competition involves answering one question a day. To enter, head over to http://www.mbroadtrip.co.uk/ and log in with your Facebook account. Lovely followers of my blog you can also use code, LE038, as it will give you extra points, meaning
a greater chance of topping the leaderboard, and being one step closer
to the coveted grand prize… and to feeling like David Attenborough in ‘Africa’!

I’d love if one of you won this prize… I’d also love to go on a safari again! Good luck!
