Our Year of Adventures

I want 2017 to be filled with adventures and I noticed lots of people these days seem to gravitate towards travel blogs.  A friend of mine had developed her travel blog Toothbrush Packed recently and it got me thinking why don’t we have a travel blog ourselves.
                       
I think it’s a great idea as its one way to remember and reminisce about our family trips together.  Children grow up in a blink of an eye so I wanted to try and squeeze in more trips and memories of our time spent together before they are more interested in chasing girls and their own independence.  Plus it makes us get out and about seeing new attractions because we want to fill it with lots of lovely content!  Eldest has renamed Saturday to “Adventure Saturday” as the last two Saturdays we have made a point of going off somewhere.  Hopefully if the bank allows this is a tradition we can continue.


Although our blog name isn’t quite so catchy, The Reluctant Traveller so called because let’s be honest my husband is not quite as eager to head off on an adventure as I am.  He would quite happily live his life in our little village till the end of his days, but he will have a hard job trying with me on his case…

Plus the boys are starting to get behind the concept too!  Although the slate museum was a tough one to encourage them to do, they did love it in the end.  So it’s all about trying new things and widening our horizons.  


I am excited looking through different sites, doing my research picking out places we haven’t been to yet.  Some places I would happily go again but the main aim of Adventure Saturday is to do something unique for us!  Weather permitting this coming weekend it might be go-karting and archery, if not it will be thinking caps back on.

I have mentioned Florida on the 5 year travel plan because there are so many different attractions to see, they dish out big portions of food (I still remember the incredible frozen yoghurt sundaes going back 23 years ago when I was there last!!!) and I also like the sound of a baseball game after reading my friends post.  I was unsure where to settle on for my 40th but I think Florida I am starting to sway towards.


So please do have a nose around both Toothbrush Packed and The Reluctant Traveller and leave a comment with any of your must visit attractions so I can add them to my bucket list.
