Road Trip Remembrance

Whenever we go somewhere new, I always  make sure to get some souvenirs that  can keep and give to friends.  I love  getting refrigerator magnets as it chronicles our travels.  I planned on doing that when we went to Virginia this year.  However, I didn't get to succeed on that this time.  When we went to Busch Gardens, I wanted to buy some souvenirs  because there was a gift shop there but  my better half said that we can buy those cheap outside the park and I agreed. 
So on our last day, we went driving around town and did not see any gift shop.  So we thought we can find one in the morning  before we head home.  We found one  but it  would not open until 9 am so we  just ditched the idea of buying some keepsake of our  trip.
I was glad however that Allied Shirts offered me a tee shirt to review and I thought it would be a great idea to use one of the photos of our trip so I can have at least one  keepsake.    Allied Shirts offers  print custom designs on tees, tanks, and hoodies,  I love that their design tool is very user-friendly.  There are unlimited possibilities since you can  customized the product the way you want it.  Designing your shirt is easy peasy, it didn't took me long to do mine.  I also love the material  of the shirt, I ju0st wish that the sizing is a bit smaller.  I ordered the extra small and it  it still big for me but it's not really a problem since I will be storing this shirt in our memory box anyway as this is the only  souvenir we have  from our trip.  I love the color choices at their website.  Maybe next time I weill get a colored one.

Disclosure: The owner of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review. Howecer,  I was provided with the product/s mentioned  to help me  facilitate the review but  opinions are my own.

5 Long Weekend Getaway Ideas in the U.K. for the Whole Family

Spending weekends with the family is already something to look forward to. However, if you’re looking for ways to spice things up a bit, then taking the rest of the gang to a long weekend getaway is your best option.

In case you’re struggling with ideas, here are 5 of the most exciting and unique experiences you can give your family for their short vacation.

1. Tarzan adventure

If your family is on the hunt for an adventure, then you shouldn’t miss Go Ape in your list. It’s available in 30 different parks and forests in the UK, which means you can book in a location near you or go the extra mile and take the farthest one from your home. Aside from sleeping in campsites, the place also offers zip wires and the thrill of swinging through trees. There’s also zip trekking and a lot of other outdoor adventures, particularly for the kids.
There’s no time limit for the activities, which means you and your family can go at your own pace. In case you’re worrying about your kids’ safety, there are trained instructors around the area that can orient them beforehand.

2. Safari Experience

You can get the Safari experience straight from the UK in The Elephant Lodge in Kent. You can take your kids to watch elephants as well as cheetahs. There’s even a new Dinosaur Forest where your family can enjoy watching the bears.

The tents in the area don’t have full cooking facilities so it’s best if you can bring your electric cool boxes for camping with you. You can load it up with snacks so you won’t have to buy from nearby restaurants. In case you don’t have one yet, you can search online for the best electric cooler reviews so you can get a better idea of your choices.

3. The Farm Life

The Beechenhill Farm is an organic farm that offers good food and quality service. The business is family-run and they allow kids to feed their chickens. Aside from cow-watching, you can also buy organic milk from their dairy farm.

4. Bandwagon

In Somerset, you’ll be able to find a genuine place to stay inside restored gypsy bow-top wagons. Each wagon can accommodate a family of four with the opportunity to visit historical places around the area. There are also donkeys, sheep and chickens that can keep your kids entertained during your stay. Renting the wagons include a day tent, wood burner and some cooking equipment.

5. Treehouse

If you have ever wanted to sleep in a tree house or have your kids experience it, then bringing the whole family to the tree houses in Powys, Wales is a great idea. The place has six different tree houses which are all located in the Welsh mountains.
Although this getaway isn’t really that cheap, the experience your family will get from it is priceless, particularly since it’s an experience away from technology and the busy life of the city.
