QuadVentura Quad bike tour, Albufeira, Portugal

Secretly I think I was more excited than the kids to do this adventure! I’ve never driven a quad bike before and, although slightly nervous at the thought, it was an opportunity I didn’t want to pass up on!

Park Aventura, Albufeira, Portugal

Today we visited Park Aventura in Albufeira. The thing I like about treetop treks are that they are outside, physical and fun for most ages so make the perfect family activity that everyone will enjoy whilst also getting some exercise (much needed when you are at an all inclusive resort right after Christmas!)

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. There didn’t seem to be a main display so much as the public letting off fireworks for literally hours in every nook and cranny of the city! 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.

Treetop Adventure Golf

The Tropical trail was jungle themed and fun. The holes were more difficult than they looked and we found ourselves navigating our balls through tree roots and sneaky hills and dips, with the occasional mini bunker.

Inflata Nation, Manchester, UK

InflataNation is described as an inflatable theme park and it is essentially one giant bouncy castle! There is a small area for under 4’s and a huge area for everyone else.

Harlech Castle, Wales

We booked on Friday afternoon for a last minute break to Haven in Wales. Not knowing what was around to do, on Saturday morning we had a look online and decided on Harlech Castle

Our unusual journey home

I was told we could have one seat upgraded to upper class for either me or my friend and my daughter could move to the spare extra legroom seat and be sat with everyone else. So, as the man left the plane, here started the question of who was going to sit with three potentially very difficult children all night and who was going to be wined and dined in upper class!
