The last place we went was pretty unusual
Dungeness. Dungeness is a very odd place.
It’s classified as Britain’s only desert by the Met Office. It’s one of the largest, if not the largest shingle spits in Europe. It has 600 species of plant that grow there – about 30% of the total number of species in the UK.
It’s a site of multiple special scientific interests, a nature reserve and also home to 2 nuclear power stations. It’s also got a load of crazy holiday home shacks (including one owned by the late Derek Jarman) and also wrecked fishing huts and boats. Perfect place to take the kids then 😉 Read More

The magical mystery tour continued – I was thinking we might go see Rye harbour and Rye castle but the kids weren’t keen, so we popped into Camber Sands for an ice cream and a paddle in the sea.
I like Camber, we go there a bit as it’s safe, easy to get to and family friendly.

It’s getting towards the end of my trip now. It was a gorgeous day forecast and none of us were sure what we wanted to do. So I made an executive decision – we’d go on a magical mystery tour.

We met up with the my sisters and their kids at Bedgebury Pinetum. It’s a fair drive from my parents place and we got a bit lost (note to Bedgebury folks – the directions were a bit crap and the place isn’t really marked on my GPS). Still – it’s getting lost through amazing countryside, so it was no big deal.
After a quick coffee, we booked up on this thing called Go Ape. Read More

It’s that time of year again – another trip to England to see my children.
I arrived in England early in the morning and Heathrow was packed. As in 2 hour queue to get through passport control.
Luckily, I knew the epassport gate was on the left of the line, so I wiggled through to the unloved machines and was out within 15 minutes.
