Fantastic places for family holidays in Norfolk

I’m not a native Norfolkian (I know, that’s not really a word) and I only moved here in 2013 after graduating from Nottingham Trent University (I’m not from there either). Since then though I have well and truly fallen in love with living in Norfolk and even more so with exploring the county. Norfolk has so much to offer for families and there are some great places to go for a family friendly holiday. We’ve tried out a few places over the years: Norwich Norwich might not be people’s first thought when it comes to a family holiday in Norfolk

Lambing weekends at Wroxham Barns

Last year, when lockdown was lifted, one of our first days out was to Wroxham Barns and we all had an absolute blast. It was one of the places that Erin was the most looking forward to going again so as soon as they released their tickets for the lambing weekends I decided to plan a day out. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, you do have to book and pay for a ticket online and choose a time slot for your arrival. You cannot just turn up on the day and most of the days end up sold out or

My ultimate travel bucket list

I have always liked travelling and going on trips away, no matter where they are but over this last year I’ve found myself thinking about it more and more. I think having a year of cancelled or rearranged trips has made me think about all of the places I’d love to go to some day. Seeing as I’ve spent so much time thinking about, and looking at, holidays I’d love to go on some day I thought I’d write about it and share my ultimate travel bucket list. I realise that we’re very lucky to have the freedom to travel

Our London Bucket list

It’s no secret that we love holidays or trips away and we try to do so most school holidays now. I spend a lot of time researching places for us to go from weekends in Cambridge to things to do in Windsor to bigger holidays. Last year we had a lot of trips away cancelled and rearranged for this year. At the minute, we don’t know which, if any, of these will go ahead. However, the first break that we have coming up is 3 nights in London during the Easter holidays. This was originally supposed to be a trip

Why We Won’t Be Taking Term Time Holidays Anymore

We’ve always been a family who enjoy holidays. Before Erin was born me and John managed to go to some pretty amazing places; Rome, Paris, married in Orlando and we even managed New York while I was pregnant. Since then we have been away somewhere at least once a year. We have really tried to make sure Erin has experienced all kinds of different holidays and we have been places such as London, Majorca, Center Parcs and Haven… just to name a few, over the past few years. We have been very lucky that John can take holidays anytime in

October Half Term Break In Norwich

AD | Contains some gifted experiences You might have read a post from us at the end of the summer holidays from when we stayed in Norwich for a couple of days. We managed to take advantage of a buy one night, get one free offer from Travelodge and when we did, we also booked a couple of nights for October half term as well. So, this is where we stayed last week for 2 nights. Monday We started our day at one of Erin’s favourite places in the city, Labyrinth. We have been there quite a few times now

Dippy’s Halloween Days At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Living in Norfolk we are quite lucky that there are so many great places to go as a family. If ever we ask Erin where she would like to go for a day her answer is usually Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. We usually try to go in the summer when the weather is warmer but this time we braved October half term. As a non-driving family I always need to know how we are going to get to and from somewhere. Last summer there was a free Dino Bus running which sadly isn’t on at the minute

10 Things I Miss About Living In Toronto

In my late teens and early 20s I think the best way to describe me would be to say I was a little bit wild. I didn’t really know what I wanted out of life and in 2016 one thing after another eventually made me want to kind of run away. Instead of just staying with a friend for a few days or something I went to a travel agent on my lunch break at work one day and booked flights to Toronto, Canada and handed in my 3 week notice. I stayed there for a month and fell in
