I wasn’t really sure whether to post this one about running a marathon after baby comes along. It sounds a bit humblebraggy, though I don’t want it to read that way. Basically I want to share why I pushed myself to do it, and how I did it, should there be anyone else out there who also wants to set themselves a challenge post parenthood. I also wanted to blog a bit more about actual outdoor activities as well as travel as adventure comes in many forms.
Now that I’m confined to the school holiday timetable, I’ve spend many hours researching the best holiday destinations to coincide with the school holiday dates for family travel ideas. Being restricted to travelling during school holidays has actually opened my eyes to some destinations I’d not thought of before, and there are tons of choices for each school holiday, both long and short haul.
Down House is the Georgian manor home of Charles Darwin. It’s now managed by English Heritage, and is a top family day out.
Travel planning is one of my favourite things to do in the evening (other than watching The Mummy Diaries. I know. Kill me). Allllll the anticipation of looking at the best countries to visit when, top hotels, adventurous spots, looking for bargainous flights – the works. Many an hour has been lost to it. I have so many family travel ideas in my head, so I thought I’d write it all down.
