A Visit to Car Fest South

Car Fest

Right at the end of the summer we spent our last weekend of freedom at Car Fest South in Hampshire thanks to an invite from Peugeot. As it is less than an hour from home and we had just returned from a holiday abroad we made the decision to travel up to the event on both days, rather than camp. I have always wanted to go to Car Fest, but Hubby is not car mad and was skeptical about a car led event, but we all had the most amazing time. Car Fest is an annual motoring festival held in Cheshire… Continue Reading “A Visit to Car Fest South”

Ten Things Not To Miss Aboard Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista

We have just returned from an amazing holiday aboard the Carnival Vista cruise ship which has so much to see and do onboard that you don’t actually have to step onshore if you don’t want to. Some activities only run on sea days and we only had one sea day on our 8 day Mediterranean cruise so you need to be on the ball not to miss some activities. Our top ten things to do onboard the Carnival Vista are: 1. The Sail Away Party – hosted on the Lido Deck as you leave the first port of the cruise,… Continue Reading “Ten Things Not To Miss Aboard Carnival Vista”

Travelling to France: Ferry vs Plane

Condor Ferry

Back in February we made the journey from Poole to St Malo in France for half term. It was a holiday we thoroughly enjoyed, although surviving a ferry journey with kids in bad weather was a steep learning curve. Taking the ferry is far less hassle than travelling by air, as you avoid long queues to check-in, excess baggage charges and a 2 hour wait for your flight to even board. Taking a ferry means you have to be at the terminal an hour before you need to board and can arrive closer to your final destination by choosing the closest… Continue Reading “Travelling to France: Ferry vs Plane”

Our top places to visit in Rome

Trevi Fountain

Our recent cruise aboard the Carnival Vista first took is to Messina, Sicily, then Naples where we made a visit to Pompeii and the next stop was Civitavecchia, the port closest to Rome. There were plenty of planned tours to purchase onboard the ship, however, we made the decision to explore Rome on our own which involved a coach taking us on the 90 minute journey to the city and leaving us to our own devices for several hours. The coach dropped us a mere five-minute walk from the Colosseum and armed with just a basic map of the city and a… Continue Reading “Our top places to visit in Rome”
