It’s not all about he who roars the loudest!

Much like half of the population (we imagine), we’ve been eagerly awaiting the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book. The animals, the cast and the big screen action make this version of Kipling’s iconic novel, pure magic. But, we feel a little bad…

Shere Khan has been getting some serious publicity these days. What about the Hathis, the Kaas, the Bagheeras and of course the Baloos. We’ve narrowed it down and created our own top 5 animals we love to spot in India (sorry Shere Khan, you didn’t make the cut today!).

How to maximise your £££s this summer

As much as we’ll hope for an ‘Indian summer’ or May-day heatwave, we might be setting ourselves up for disappointment this year, as the British weather probably isn’t going to surprise us! Luckily for us, there’s a spectacular world out there, and if you’ve paid in Pounds there are some beautiful places where your family’s Pound, will go a long, long way.

6 family travel myths debunked

Family travel often gets a bad rap. People think it’s all chasing your naked toddler through a hotel lobby while he/she screams for chocolate, or being stuck in a campervan or dreary chalet watching Finding Nemo so many times that you develop an urge to exterminate all marine life.

Travelling in Egypt - Spring 2011

Last week (2 April 2011) I returned from my third trip to Egypt’s Valley in which I visited Luxor, Aswan and a number of temples in between. In many people’s minds Egypt is synonymous with history and the ancient Egyptians but cruising down the Nile made me realise that Egypt is a stunningly beautiful land too with the verdant green banks, pulsing with village life, palm trees and crop cultivation set against the yellow of the ever present hills and desert beyond.   

My family trip to North India

Our trip to India really started for me and for my daughter on the afternoon of the first day when we boarded bicycle rickshaws from outside the Friday Mosque to tour around Old Delhi.

Honey, aged 9. Blog on the Around The Bay of Naples

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure.

The Woodyer's Andorra Family Holiday

The Woodyer Family recently discovered what it’s like to go off the beaten track with The Family Adventure Company, taking their 9, 11 and 13 year olds on a family holiday to Andorra. Squeezed between Spain and France, the mountainous principality is a perfect place for an action-packed summer activity week.

The Family Adventure Company put their customers in greater focus …

We all know what it’s like to be a customer and over countless times we have all experienced varying levels of customer service from outstandingly excellent to “how can they get it so wrong”  poor  service.  If you pick up any business magazine or view most adverts you’ll read how many companies are these days claiming that ‘It’s all about the customer’…
