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…

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….

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…

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…

Mini Adventure: The New Forest

I love exploring parts of the UK that I haven’t been too before so when planning our bank holiday get-a-away we decided to head to the New Forest, which despite being pretty much on our doorstep we hadn’t visited before! We stayed at the lovely Harry’s Fields Campsite, which is a medium sized independent campsite…

Midsummer Paddle in Studland Bay

Had the the opportunity to do some kayaking whilst camping in Studland the other weekend. Kayaking is not something I do very often, but I’ve always enjoyed it. We were on our annual girlie camping weekend so the five of us decided to give it a go, what could possible go wrong! We got kitted…
