Reading about our Montenegro adventures you will probably ask yourselves - what, NO fishing? Naturally there was! No holiday’s complete without at least some angling adventure, so of course we had reserved a full day for some fly-fishing

Ok – I’m going to be honest right from the start. I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Lapland to see Santa in his homeland. Imagine my excitement when I managed to persuade Ashley to let me blow my first post-career break paycheque on a trip of a lifetime.
Day 3 of our Shetland visit was yet another beautiful sunny day, so we decided to explore out towards the west a little. We agreed that we needed to look at Scalloway, the ancient capital of Shetland.
The girls summer holidays started last week, and our local area organises an excellent holiday activity scheme which runs for the first 2 weeks. The kids get to pick up to 10 different activities to try, all of which are free or have a very minimal charge.
I've been thinking about whether to turn our trip to Miniatur Wunderland into a Little Trekkers post, or not, for a long time. 3 months to be accurate - ever since our Hamburg trip last October. After all, Minatur Wunderland is all indoors, so surely that cannot be, by definition, a Little Trekker adventure?
After our ropes course adventure a few months ago in Landmark our traditional November trip to CenterParcs was much awaited because we knew there would be an even bigger and better opportunity for Tree Trekking.
We were given a “proper” bike for Chloe a while ago from some friends. However, she’d been having so much fun on her balance bike, she wasn’t really very interested.
After the visit to the Westray Heritage Centre, we thought the rest of the day would be a total washout, so went back to the cottage to bake cheese scones. Just before dinner, however, it stopped raining and even threatened to be a bit bright in the south.
After slurping their soup in record time, the Little Trekkers were chomping at the bit to get back to the water. A quick glance across to the beach revealed that the waves had dropped down on to the sand so we agreed to go and have another look.
Harry’s most anticipated day of the summer is the day they bale the big field at the caravan. He was a bit disappointed to discover we weren’t there the day it was cut, but his sadness was short-lived. On baling day, I was met early in the morning by a very excited boy yelling: “Mum, there’s a whole herd of tractors out there!”
Day 2 of our trip to Shetland dawned sunny and warm so we decided to do a very quick Tesco run in Lerwick for more supplies (we’d already greedily munched our way through an entire delicious tub of Shetland butter and a few packets of oatcakes...) before exploring further afield. But of course, us being us, we got sidetracked.
Day 3 of our trip to Westray was wet and blustery. We didn’t mind one little bit because we’d planned a morning visit to the little Westray Heritage Centre, just 2 minutes walk down the road.
