The Black Country Living Museum, Dudley, UK

Walking into this museum was like taking a step back in time. We cautiously walked up to a small house near the entrance, having heard that you could look in the buildings. One of the kids tried the front door, it didn’t open. We sneaked round the back, unsure if this was an exhibit or actually someone’s house and we were trespassing in their garden.

Prague Zoo, Czech Republic

On our last day in Prague we decided to go to the zoo. It was a Monday and this meant reduced entry for children at 50 CZK, which is around £1.85 each. Compared to the prices of zoos in the UK this was a bargain!

The Rest and Fun Center, Prague Airport

Our flight was delayed by two hours and as most my readers will know, airports can be pretty stressful places if you are delayed with autistic children! We decided to try out the Rest and Fun Center for a couple of hours and I am so glad we did!

Prague Boats, Prague by night dinner cruise

Last night we had the fortune to go on a dinner cruise along the river in Prague. We timed the tram wrong and managed to arrive half an hour before the cruise, which turned out to be fortunate as, once we had exchanged the e-ticket for a printed ticket we were on board soon enough to be allocated a table by the edge of the boat.

Museum of Senses, Prague

This small museum, found in Prague old town, has been open for six months. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was a great way to pass an hour and a half.

Angry Birds Activity Park, Saariselka, Finland

An Angry Birds Activity Park is not something that usually springs to mind when I think of the Arctic Circle, but in a tiny town, almost as far North as you can get, surrounded by snow laden trees, we found exactly that!

Wild Spirit Park, Ivalo, Finland

We had a great time at Wild Spirit Park. It was lovely to see all the animals and Tiina was very accomodating and informative. It is well worth the price of €10 per adult and €5 per child.
