photostory friday - is it too soon to tell you...

we're planning our next trip?

well, we are!

where are we going you may ask?

i shall tell you by way of a picture puzzle.

see if you can figure it out...
...and we might even try and make it here.

there's a prize if you can guess where HERE is.

this giveaway EXCLUDES the person whose blog i stole it from!!!!!

well done mel! being the tight little blog family that we are, you correctly figured that the cutie sitting on this beach belongs to this cute couple
and thanks for playing along sass. leaving the pic on your side bar was a fun idea.

i'm so excited to meet you guys! my reasons are THREE-FOLD:

1) the hour and half train trip to get to their place (me likey train travel)
2) i've always wanted to visit the 'seaside'. ok, i live 10 minutes from the beach, but the english 'seaside' - so quaint!!!
3) recaro has some cool gadgets that might end up in my suitcase...
4) sass is a daring baker
5) peaches is too cute!

(ok - clearly there are LOTS of reasons i can't wait to meet these guys)

The first photo is from London; the 2nd photo is Rome...not sure where the beach is located. You're taking a European vacation for your 25th wedding anniversary! Woo hoo!

Michelle said...

How exciting a big trip for your anniversary! Very clever post. :)

Kelly said...

HMMMMMM..... London, Rome and Santa Monica beach (or whatever one it was that they did the big fern on it for waitangi day last year)

Super cool trip plans. I loved Rome when I was there - although working around an 8mth old's nap times was a little on the testing side. That and the uzi-toting cops that would swarm and hover at all the cool touristy spots then take off again.

angel gurl said...

well i think celebrating your wedding anniversary overseas is a fab idea. Enjoy the UK and Rome, not sure where the beach is. What a great Christmas you and the family had. Loved looking at the photos and reading what you got up to. Happy New Year Sue. BTW I like your one word "find"

kiwi animal lover said...

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

I'm totally clueless, but it is a really fun way to share where you will be spending your anniversary.

Chris said...

Somewhere far away?

I thought you already were far away!

Happy New Year, and Happy Anniversary!

Kacey R. said...

Ok, so I am SO NOT geographically inclined. I got the first two but the last...that is a doozy!

At any rate, I hope you have a FABULOUS time and enjoy every second. Can't wait to find out what is on your agenda.

Happy New Year!

Honey Mommy said...

Have fun on your trip. Italy, right?!

Happy New Year!

scrappysue said...

yep - italy. we have friends who are turning 100 this year (she's 50 next month, him in may). they are child-free/less and are renting an apartment in rome for 3 months, the middle month being our 25th wedding anniversary, which i think is DESTINY!!! my sister is in the UK and a couple of fun bloggers i hope to meet too (there's your hint)...

Kristi Smith said...

Sue! How exciting!!! I am so jealous of all of this traveling you get to do. I need to start saving my pennies. ;)

Gina said...

You are so creative. Congratulations! What a trip! And Happy New Year...looks like it will have a great start!

auntiegwen said...

I am looking forward to it sooooooooooo much, but remember the 3rd glass makes me sick, be prepared !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mandyb said...

oh kelly got there before I did,,, santa monica beach where they made that HUGE silver fern.... cool what a great idea taking the trip - you will have a blast

scrappysue said...

i can see my crude photoshop skills are fooling you all. i put the kiwi there to cover up something/someone.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Ha! I think maybe your clue gave it away, perhaps?!? Um... maybe not.

Is that the beach near where Sass E-mum lives? Hang on... while I go find out the name (I'm SO bad with names)... Whitstable. That's my guess, anyway.

What an amazing trip! Happy Anniversary, too! And Happy New Year Again! and just !!!!!! Whee!

Sass E-mum said...

How interesting!

Surely you'll get a winner soon.

Lorina said...

I am jealous! I want to take a trip.. I loved looking at your pictures!

Saundra Shaver said...

London and Rome if you can!!!

How fantastic!!!

Happy New Year!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Have a wonderful trip! All the best in 09! Happy Anniversary {on the middle month!}

Kimber said...

How awesome. Have a wonderful trip!!

Reluctant Housewife said...

I see that it's indeed from Sass's blog. Whee. Did I win?

She's moved the picture up to her sidebar. Helping out with your clues :)

scrappysue said...

clever clogs mel, and fun hint-leaving sass, altho i see it's not actually taken where they live, but it's close enough. i can't wait to meet her! mel, your surprise will be in the post once it opens again (statutory holidays!)

Chere said...

The first one is easy, London, I was there this summer. The second one is in Rome, one of our favorite cities. The third one is a hard one. I have it. The beach is a English beach. There is a little red at the bottom of the bird picture and the photo of the little girl sitting on the beach has a little red on it. The foot prints are also the same. Please let me know if I am right.

lisaschaos said...

Oh boy! Congrats on all those years of blissdom. :) Looks like a fun trip!

Reluctant Housewife said...

Yay! That was fun, Sue!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

Sue - Have a GRAND time!! (no kiddies coming right?) So when is the big trip??
I ADORE Italy and London! But London is cold right now? you are leaving your summer for our winter???

Susie said...

What a great post! Happy 25th Anniversary! Congratulations and ENJOY your trip! I'm so excited for you.
I have no idea where you are going though. I best read up on some of your comments before I disappear off your blog. Yeah, geography's not my strong suit.

So,

gigi said...

Oh how fun! I would love to meet you and Sassy! What a blast yall are all going to have!

Dusty Spider said...

Looks like a wonderful trip for you, especially if it's your first to London and Rome. Many congrats on your silver anniversary. Love, Flick x

Daryl said...

London, Rome and Kent?

Amanda said...

Yes, I'm totally jealous. Wish I could invite myself on your 25th anniversary trip. Y'all will have a blast and I can't wait to hear all about it.
