When I went to the #HBloggerLove Awards Party organised by HostelBookers, I never thought I would win 30 nights accommodation but I did.
I was so surprised because I NEVER win anything. Really, I’m not being melodramatic, I don’t. I’m not normally one of those ‘lucky’ people. That was until the night I won the HostelBookers’ lottery prize.
When I heard someone call number 28, I had to search in my bag for the small white ball I had been given at the beginning of the night. It had a number on it. As I searched for it, someone went up on the stage to accept the prize so I was sure it wasn’t me. That was until I looked at the little white ball in my hand and saw what I thought was 28. It was dark so I was wondering if I was mistaken, especially as someone else had claimed the prize. I showed it to a couple of people beside me and they said it was the winning number. I wondered if there were two number 28s by accident so I showed it to one the organisers. As it turns out, the person on the stage had number 26 and not number 28. So, I was the winner, OMG! I had actually won something. It took a while to sink in but, as it did, I felt so lucky. It was my turn to accept my prize and have my photo taken – yippeee!!!
Thanks, HostelBookers! Now I just have decide where I’m going to go and when. I have a few ideas but I’d welcome a few more. Where would you go if you won?
