6 Things Every Hiker should have prepared for Winter

September 5, 2018

Hiking or walking long distances during or cross country is a thing not many people like to do.

Thankfully we now see towns with certain paths reserved for hikers and places to see either in the middle of the woods or in literally the middle of nowhere, to watch beautiful sightings and nature scenes that normally only the hikers…

How To Squeeze The Most Out of a City Break to London

Family Day Out at Drayton Manor

July 9, 2018

What a wonderful day! I cannot explain how such a brilliant day this one was. Beside the excellent weather, the “almost alone” feeling in the park (it was a Monday, after a full park Sunday – They had a promotion in which the tickets cost £10 for the day, and they are planning more like these), it was a very fun day for us as a family.   What to do: There’s plenty at Drayton Manor to keep everyone happy this summer. Both…
