Hey everyone, so Eastpak recently got in touch with me about their #madeforyourcity competition, where if you snap a picture of yourself with your Eastpak bag featuring your home town and use the handle above on Twitter or Instagram, then you'll be put in for the chance to win a trip for 2 to Berlin with £300 spending money. The competition closes 24th October, so there's still chance to enter!
I currently live in Darwen, which is close to both Liverpool and Manchester. It used to be a thriving town when the textile industry was at its strongest during the Industrial Revolution, but since around 1950 the textile industry in Britain sharply declined in favour of international alternatives. One of the most impressive landmarks of Darwen is the Jubilee Tower, or Darwen Tower, which was made in celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
It made a lot of sense that the Tower should be the landmark for my #madeforyourcity photo. So R & I went for a short Sunday walk, which luckily offered the last remnants of the Summer sun.
So there you have it! That's my #madeforyoucity entry. You can enter too and find further information on the competition here. It's really easy to enter and you could find yourself on a flight to Berlin! I've never been to Germany yet, so I would absolutely love to win - but looking at the other entries it looks like there's going to be serious competition! Good luck if you enter!
