Fun Friday ~ The Amazing Chalk Man
The beauty of running your own blog is that come Friday you can pretty much do what you want, I mean who really wants to be stressing about money on a Friday! So I thought I’d share some pictures I was sent in an email today, I think they’re amazing and I’m sure you’ll think so too, check them out below. I’m not really sure where the guy who creates them is from or even where these 3D chalk drawings are being done, if any of you readers know then please leave a comment below so I can think about paying a visit.
One more thing I like to do on a Friday is to give some of my blog friends a shout out so if you find the time this weekend be sure to read these great blog posts:
Pauline over @ Reach Financial Independence wrote a really helpful post for those thinking about travelling to France on a budget which you can read here.
Mrs.B and I went camping in France with some of our good friends a few years ago and it was the best holiday we’ve ever had. We stayed near Antibes in the South of France and as I mentioned in my comment on Pauline’s post, my favourite day involved jumping on a french train in the morning and heading over the border into Italy for a nice Italian coffee and pizza. Then after dinner we jumped back on a train and headed to Monte Carlo for the afternoon (Oh how the other half live!) and then back to France for a few beers later in the evening.
Some guys in Monaco were also selling a 20 minute drive around the Formula one track in a Ferrari for 60 Euro’s, I know it’s not pocket money but when else would you get the chance to do something like that? I suppose thats the beauty of camping, you sacrifice a few home comforts but you’re left with a bit more cash to do other fun things.
