Visiting Durdle Door

On a recent weekend in Dorset we drove to the coast to visit Durdle Door, somewhere I have always wanted to see for myself. We were arriving at about 11am and I hoped this wouldn’t be too late to avoid the crowds.

What to do in Nantes, France with Kids

When we went to Puy Du Fou we got an earlier flight so we could venture into Nantes and see a little of the area. I hadn’t even heard of Nantes France before our trip was booked and so we had no expectations of what the city would be like. We parked easily in the cathedral car park in the city centre and started walking. We didn’t realise until after…

When Carpet Bright UK got in touch to introduce us to their carpet cleaning services I wondered why we hadn’t…

An Incredible Weekend at Puy du Fou

A few months ago I received an invite for a family trip to Puy du Fou. I had never heard of Puy du Fou before but a quick online search told me that it was the second most popular attraction in France next to Disneyland Paris. That told me all I had to know – we just had to visit. So we booked to fly to France at the end…
