    On hallowed ground ...

    July 11, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Pretty special day for Dan ... one never to forget seeing as he's one of the most dedicated of Man U fans ever!!! Did a tour of Old Trafford with the great Stan (our lovely guide), spent far too much of Dan's money in the megastore and of course took in everything the museum had to offer. Now off to Alton Towers for a day of fun tomorrow... woohoo!Read more

    By the sea under the Castle

    July 9, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We've decided to drop Blackpool from the trip as it's all getting a bit rushed and we need a break - so we headed to Harlech on the coast for a couple of nights to unwind. Another stunning Welsh village with an awesome 13th century Castle on our doorstep.Read more

    On top of the world ... well Wales !

    July 9, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Driving up through Snowdonia National Park and we are blown away by the beauty of it all - this country side is amazing, could be one of the most beautiful places we've seen!!!
    We eventually drove up through the sheer rock faces until we got to Llanberis and hoped on the train up Mt Snowdon.
    We got squashed into an old rail coach on a very hot day, next to a very smelly German woman .... if it wasn't for the views it might have been an uncomfortable hour up the hill.
    The view from the top is pretty damn cool !!!! Once you get through the 300 other people all trying to get to the 5ft platform at the tippy top that is. The clouds rolled away just long enough for us to look down around Wales.

    Bounce Below

    July 9, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We found this place before we left as a surprise for the kids - an old Victorian slate mine that they have turned into a trampoline park!
    After walking a wee way into the old mines we came across this amazing world of nets and slides, several floors and rooms all set over a huge cavern, very cool and exhilarating. Unfortunately no one mentioned you had to be fit for this, after 10 mins Dad had to hop out for a rest... we all loved it though and it's certainly not something we'll forget easily.Read more

    Driving through Wales

    July 8, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We left Devon and headed off up into Wales. The country side is so beautiful around here and you notice the difference in traffic volume as soon as you cross the bridge. We're staying at a great park in the middle of nowhere with so very friendly people whom you can't understand. A nod and a smile and a "arrhh" seems to work though .... we must be in pirate country.Read more

    Horse riding on the beach

    July 8, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    The girls were up early this morning and off for horse riding on the beach, unfortunately they weren't allowed to take cameras so there are no pics. They did have a great ride along the beach though but now are very sore and tired.

    Off to Wales !!!

    Shopping at Bude

    The girls decided they needed to update their wardrobe quickly so we made a quick stop at Bude, nice spot looks like it could be a good holiday destination.
