Mini Adventure: Camping at Little Meadows

The early summer had shown such glorious promise that me and my Mum decided to risk it and take the boys camping for a couple of nights in late August. We chose North Devon as it is an easy two and a half hour drive from Bath with some lovely sandy beaches. We decided to book a pitch at Little Meadows campsite between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin for three nights.

Last weekends mini adventure was a trip down the River Wye in canoes! We booked a half day trip from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat with the River Wye Canoe company and it didn’t disappoint.

Specialized Bikes: Katy Curd and Helen Gaskell Free Women’s Coaching Day

I entered a random competition that popped on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago to go to a free coaching day by Specialized Bikes with Katy Curd and Helen Gaskell. And I was lucky enough to be picked! Although I have ridden mountain bikes for over 10 years, I’ve never actually had any coaching before and I hardly ever ride with other women so I was really excited (and a little nervous) about the day.

Review: Kinder Snowboard Intro Lesson at Tamworth Snowdome

After the debacle that was skiing lessons in Châtel, I had promised my little boy he could try snowboarding…to be like Mummy and Daddy! So, as we were up in the Peak District for a wedding I booked him onto a Kinder Snowboard Intro lesson at Tamworth Snowdome as a treat on the way home.

Châtel with the family

The annual family winter holiday and this years chosen destination, after much research, was Châtel. Part of the massive Portes Du Soliel ski area, which we have visited before, but not stayed in Châtel, which is just a stones throw from the Swiss border.

After the heaviest snow falls in Bath that I can ever remember we were lucky to make it to France at all! We had to dig the car out of our street and our Thomas Cook flight was the only one to leave from Bristol Airport on Saturday morning. It was a well deserved glass of vino when we arrived – unfortunately the fun had only just begun!

Snowboarding with the Girls: San Domenico and Domo Bianca

It was going to be a bit of a random trip – a group of mates, some old, some new, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, owned by a friend of a friend and the chance to ski some local ski areas in Piedmont, North West Italy.

The annual Big Bang Show by TSA was held over the weekend of the 14 & 15th of October at the Tamworth SnowDome and it is a fab opportunity to demo the new seasons boards as well as doing some coaching sessions for FREE!

Sneaky Spring Ski

I thought I would have to forego my yearly visit to the mountains due to the arrival of our second child in February, but after a trip to the pub (where the best plans are made!) we managed to sneak in a last minute trip at the very end of the season.
