Magical MoroccoFriday, 29 December 2017
From the moment I landed in Essaouira and stepped off the plane into the warming sun of Morocco, I knew this was going to be a fantastic trip.
A short transfer away, we arrived at Rebali Riads, our home for the next two nights; and what a home it was. The peaceful, luscious gardens are filled with colourful flowers, which drape from the riads and down to the refreshing swimming pool below… a place I spent much of my time in!
Ho-Ho-Hold up! We’ve got more than Santa on our family Christmas breaks!Tuesday, 22 August 2017
We know! You’re probably thinking ‘isn’t it a bit too soon for Christmas talk? It’s only August’

Since joining the Activities Abroad team, I’ve found a good deal of snow-based fun to change my mind.
Here are five activities which I definitely want to try, all of which you can experience for yourselves on our family holidays to winter destinations!
While my list isn’t in any particular order, this has to be right at the top. Dogsledding has long been central to the culture of the Nordic countries, and it’s easy to see why: the energy of the pack driving you over sparkling white lands must be amazing (correction: ‘is amazing’, as resoundingly confirmed by the whole office!).
Visit to Finland - Ranua Polar Bears and Father ChristmasFriday, 03 April 2015
Day One: After arriving in Father Christmas’s airport (Rovaniemi) in April, oddly I instantly felt festive.
With reindeer Christmas decorations and a snow covered landscape; this could only be mistaken for Lapland.
The guide collected me from the airport and then drove me to Ranua Wildlife Park, which was situated around 1 hour away. On route the scenery was stunning with brightly painted Scandinavian wooden houses covered in snow, never-ending forests, frozen lakes and clear blue skies.
