Travel: Summer holiday special

travelIt’s August so it must be time for another bumper travel round-up. There are lots of bloggers out there posting about their summer holidays so I have tried to include as many as possible to give you lots of inspiration for your future travel plans. I have, for your delight, a couple of yurts, Butlins’ breaks and a session on a segway. Seaside or countryside, London or the Lake District, it’s all here. Plus, if you fancy camping, can I interest you in the Peak District, France or the base of Mt Everest?

About Trish Burgess

Trish Burgess started her blog ‘Mum’s Gone To…’ with a series of posts called ‘Mum’s Gone To Iceland’ where she was extremely ill on a whale-watching trip and thought she would die snow-mobiling on a glacier. Thankfully she survived and continued with less scary family trips: ‘Mum’s Gone To…Canada, Cyprus, Barcelona, Berlin etc. Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne she now lives in South Lincolnshire and travels with her husband and occasionally with her son, who is now at university.

    Fantastic lineup, Trish. Am making my way through the list. Hope your summer is going well.

      It’s a long list – have you finished yet?
      Yes, summer going well – haven’t had a fortnight’s break this year, just a short trip to Oslo and a few days on the Northumberland coast. Both were fantastic.

    What a great list! Also love to read about some of those kid-free holidays too! (and get jealous at the same time)
