The Medieval Times dinner and tournament, Baltimore

Our evening meal today was as exciting as a meal can be, in fact you could say we had a great knight (and yes I did spell that wrong on purpose!) For tonight we headed to Baltimore and stepped back in time to an era of knights, jousting and horses.

An up to date guide to travelling from England’s main airports with autistic passengers!

Those of us who have flown with autistic children know how much it helps if the airport has measures in place to help. Those who haven’t flown yet may feel reassured knowing what help is out there. There is conflicting advice with out of date viral posts on social media making it more confusing so I have researched current advice and help available. Here is a quick guide to travelling from each of the main airports, the help they have in place and how to access that help:

Park Aventura, Albufeira, Portugal

Today we visited Park Aventura in Albufeira.

New Years Eve in Hamburg, Germany

As for New Years Eve, I did see some children, though I wouldn’t take mine. The main area for fireworks is near the harbour.

An experience certainly, and walking back to the hotel felt a little like a war zone, ducking behind cars and into doorways to dodge rockets.
