May was an extra special month in our travel writing competition.
It brought us the last entries weâ€™re judging until My World First returns in the autumn, bigger, better and more brilliant.
So what did our plucky entrants entertain us with this month?
Hayley Green from Bournemouth dubbed Spainâ€™s Nerja an â€˜Andalusian Brightonâ€™ while tucking in to delicious Mediterranean cuisine, and Jaz Chopra swapped Weston-super-Mare for the unexpected hospitality of Costa Ricaâ€™s indigenous tribes during a volunteering trip.
Thatâ€™s not all. Stacey Pryce from Wrexham conquered first time flight fears by playing scrabble, while Kelly Martin from Gloucester revealed how her life changed forever during a solo travelling trip round Australia. Oh, and our sympathies went out to Hazel Rigazio, whose lost suitcase forced her to spend much of her honeymoon wearing her husbandâ€™s Bart Simpson swimming shorts. Aye carumba.
But there could only be one winner. And that was a writer who questioned karmic justice during a visit to Pushkar in India. Congratulations to Bryan Poynton from East Molesey in Sussex.
