Top 5 Highlights: Family Skiing in the Val di Fassa

It has been 5 years since our last visit to the beautiful Val di Fassa and things have changed a bit both in the valley and as a family (we are four now rather then three!). Here are my top 5 highlights from our most recent trip. Vajolet Ski School After a previous bad experience…

Family Bucket List Challenge

The AliKats Bucket List Challenge has inspired me to think about what I would put on my bucket list. We love being outside and traveling, having a young family makes the planning all the more important but it doesn’t stop us from getting out there! It might take us a few years to tick these…

A Family Adventure in Denmark

“Why Denmark?” Everyone asked when I told them what our summer holiday destination was! OK, so it was a bit of a random choice but I’ve always wanted to explore Scandinavia and Denmark seemed like a good place start – its always top of the charts when it comes to the “happiest places to live”…

Mini Adventure: Beryl’s Campsite

The summer holidays are finally here and we’ve survived the first year of school! Time for a much needed break from the routine and some fun adventures. Our first trip was three nights camping with the two boys and my Mum. We choose Beryl’s Campsite in the tiny village of Beeson on the South Devon…

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…

Mini Adventure: Canoeing on the River Wye

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. We hired two canoes – a three man, for myself, my eldest boy (whom at 4 years old is the…

Family Ski Trip to Châtel

The annual family winter holiday and this years chosen destination, after much research, was Châtel. Part of the massive Portes Du Soleil 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…

The Big Bang Snowboard Show at Tamworth

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! We decided to make the trek up from South West for…

Late Season Skiing in Civetta, Italy

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. Hastily arranged flights…

Balanceability

I heard about Balanceability, the UK’s first and only accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children, through a Tweet from @Love2cyclebath and thought it sounded like something my little boy might like to try. A bit of blurb about the programme… The cycling programme combines unique ergonomic balance bikes with a schedule of fun activities…
