    It looks like you had a wonderful day! And Joe is so brave for facing his fears and having a play in the waves. Go Joe!

    You've just fetched tears to the eyes of us all here in the Little Trekkers office! What a sad ending to a beautiful story! Poor snowmen.

    I find this a really interesting question.

    Firstly the answer is influenced by culture.
    I am not Swiss, but I am raising my children...

    Lovely adventure. We went 'ice mining' today and it was great fun.

    Well you could do it on the way to or from Orkney Jay - just a little detour via Wick to stretch your legs ;-)

    Ooooo, what a gorgeous place! And I'm in awe at all of you wading in to the no-doubt terribly icy water. Hooray for spontaneity,...

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

Back on the Water

Back on the Water

It seems like forever since we last went canoeing, which is probably because we’ve not been in a boat since last summer. What with moving house, DIY, snow and Dom being busy at work, canoeing has unfortunately had to drop down the list of priorities.

Our First Camping Trip of the Year

We’re just back from a fantastic first camping trip of the year. We had great fun up in the Trossachs sharing all our favourite spots with James from when we used to live just outside Stirling.

Showtime 2013!

What a difference a year makes! It seems like just a few months ago we wrote our blog about last year’s Balmoral Show and here we are again already!

Where the Wild Things Live

The other week we decided to go wildlife spotting, so we took off with the pram to where the wild things live.

Home Sports Day

Home Sports Day

What do you do when you’re stuck at home, it’s cloudy, drizzly and freezing cold, and the entire family mutinously wants to stay in, but you *know* they’ll feel better with some fresh air?

Rousay: Little Island, Huge Wide Open Spaces

Rousay: Little Island, Huge Wide Open Spaces

On Orkney, there are 4 islands that you can drive between thanks to the Churchill Barriers. We also wanted to visit another island entirely, so decided to take the little 8-car ferry from Tingwall on the Orkney Mainland to Rousay.

Lots of Lovely Lambs!

Lots of Lovely Lambs!

We’ve been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Aunty Noleen’s lambs. Following an eventful week, to everyone’s delight, there were six safe arrivals (including one set of twins) and one poor Mummy lamb who successfully adopted an orphaned lamb after hers was born dead.

A Day in Burray

A Day in Burray

The single, sole downside to visiting Orkney out of season is that many of the touristy things are closed until summer. Oh well, that just gave us another excuse to plan a return visit next summer!

Growing Little Beans

Growing Little Beans

The recent sunshine beams seem to have brought everything bursting to leaf and flower before our very eyes. The buddlia and willow stems have doubled in height virtually overnight and even our own little bean Eomer is swinging around in too short trousers all of a sudden!

A Well Deserved Day Off from Little Trekking

A Well Deserved Day Off from Little Trekking

We had an action-packed holiday in Yorkshire and as a measure of how busy we were the toddler slept for over 12 hours each night (unheard of) and even the newborn managed several hours of sleep at a time (wowser).
