Oft described as the most beautiful castle in South Tyrol, Schloss (Castle) Wolfsthurn was high on our list during our recent South Tyrol trip, given that it was a mere stones throw from our base in Vipiteno. It’s also home to the South Tyrolean Museum of Hunting & Fishing, which forms part of a trio […]
A common theme to my blog – picture heavy posts, this one being no exception. Please note the constant “swapping” of walking pole possessors throughout these photographs, I promise you, we only have one pair. Mr R invested in them when the toddler first arrived as he wanted a bit more stability when wandering with […]
The tripping hazard of school bags left by the front door marked the ominous end of the Summer yesterday… My older two started at their new school, after a lengthy and painful breakfast that involved a lot of moaning about school uniform (they still can’t get used to having to wear one!).

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 […]
