Just to prove some work gets done on our trips here's a picture of my husband doing his thing (a photo of me at the laptop isn't nearly so dramatic!)
I've also been off in search of competitions. This monthly one is tempting as they only want 300 words and offer a $50 Amazon voucher. This one is possibly even more so as just one line is required and the prize is £100. More words are required for this one (up to 4,000) but the prize is £3,500 so it's worth making the effort.
