Half term in Devon!

Half term in Devon!

This February half term we spent a few days in Devon.... it was great! But lets get one thing clear before I get into detail about what we are got up to:

Devon is closed until March.....

Ok I say this in jest but the one reoccurring theme across the whole week was exactly that, a number of the places (shops, cafes, attractions etc) we went to were pretty much closed apart from a few great places that were open!

Preparing for our road trip to Disneyland Paris

Next month will see our first family holiday in over 3 years.  We are all booked up to visit Disneyland Paris at the end of October to celebrate Little Geek's 13th Birthday, which will be when we are there!

We planned on turning up at the Euro Tunnel and surprising her as to where we were going, but as so much planning is likely to be needed we decided to tell her recently and include her in the plans, that way she won't miss out on anything we might forget etc

Booking the trip earlier this year I totally underestimated how much prepping is going to be required to ensure we are ready for this trip.

I have actually had to get a notebook and make a numerous lists of things we still need to sort before we go and they include:

  • Making the car ready for the continent
  • Planning our route
  • Ensuring Passports are all up to date (can you believe mine had expired!)
  • Booking restaurants for the duration of the trip.  Luckily when we booked we got a deal including half board and the helpful people at Disney recommend that we book our restaurants ahead of time, something we probably wouldn't have even thought of!
  • Preparing my legs, having a bit of a dodgy left leg I need to get this ready for walking serious distances each day! 
  • Lists..... making lists of what we want to see / do over the 4 days we are there! 

There is much more that needs planning, I have yet to even think about clothes, What is the weather going to be like at the end of October in Paris?

As it is going to be the Little Geeks 13th Birthday on the Saturday, we have been wondering what can we do to make this day extra special?  We have looked at the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show but not sure if she will like this (If anyone has been let me know what you thought!), but what else should we do! More research is required I think.

For now I am going back to researching restaurants, at least 2 fussy eaters out of the 5 of us! 

Oh and settings a reminder in my calendar to get he car serviced before we go! But if there are any seasoned Disneyland Paris travellers out there, be sure to get in touch with all your tips!! 

 

 

#MYSUNDAYPHOTO - Finding Little Geek

Hello from Gran Canaria, upsetting to say we are on the final few days now of our holiday but it has been brilliant!

Its always nice to get away for your birthday, even nicer when you are somewhere sunny and hot! On Friday we went out on a boat and went swimming in the sea with Little Geek!  After a bit of hesitation she was jumping off the back of the boat and having fun.

Mel managed to grab this photo of the two of us, which will bring back many happy memories in years to come

You know when you have those weeks where you want to escape....... well this is where I wanted to go this weekend, a place we found a few weeks ago when in Pembrokeshire (I do love this part of the world).
