A 1950’s Vision of the Future – Atomium with Some Toddlers

Pre-kiddos we used to go every year to Brussels – chips, chocolate and beer – it’s pretty much the ideal weekend break. And only 2 hours away by train, it’s closer than visiting most places in the UK. So we decided it would be nice to visit friends with some similarly aged kids and show […]

Penguins and a Very Exciting Cow at Edinburgh Zoo

You’re probably thinking, ‘surely you’d mention the pandas in the title, the most exciting thing at Edinburgh zoo?”.

So how best to cope with this one? Impressively, Zakynthos airport (that linked page is amazing, people slagging it off […]

Conveniently somewhat near where we were headed for lunch, we set off for the Fairbourne Railway, to do a […]

With the inspired idea of going to the beach with the inlaws, we had a brief yet clearly insane idea that it wasn’t really that much further to just take a Fast Cat over to Ryde on the Isle of Wight for a short trip. It turns out it isn’t as insane as you would […]
