It’s not hard to find my child free posts in the Bavarian Sojourn “back catalogue” as they are typically called things like “The Perfect Quiet Weekend” or “Birthday Castles” (which wasn’t a strictly child free weekend, but as Schloss Elmau does such a good job at entertaining your offspring, you can pretend if you really […]
Having tea with a tiger at Mottisfont. He’s not one for large stuffed animals or dressing up really so this made me laugh.
Trout Watching. We would swim in this part of the river when we were small (and my fish phobia wasn’t quite so bad!)…
I think my memories of living in Cambridgeshire will involve a lot of stereotypical things (even though it was for a relatively short period of time), bikes, punting, and gown clad students… And then a few not so – the masses of flag wielding tourist groups, Anglesey Abbey, Wandlebury Ring, and The Imperial War Museum […]

Now that we are back on our own small (but perfectly formed) island, having overdosed on mountains these past few years (never a bad thing!), we are currently enjoying making up for lost time when it comes to beaches, and being so very close to the sea… So, when Parkdean Resorts got in touch to […]
As was the case in the last few days before we left Denmark and Germany, I would often be found rushing around favourite places, or those places that had been on the list but that we hadn’t quite made it to. And, as we very much treated Cambridge like any other expat location when […]
