2013 in reflection

We had so many unforgettable adventures this year, and by that I mean just James and I. I won’t even be going into my Brownie experiences in this post. Here are a few highlights.


During 2013 we finally took the plunge and purchased Merlin passes, including discount on food we have saved £387.00 after visiting Warwick Castle, Thorpe Park – Fright Nights, Alton Towers – Scarefest, Chessington, The Dungeons in London and Blackpool, the Blackpool Aquarium, Blackpool Madame Tussards, Blackpool Tower, Ballroom and Circus and the London Eye! We still have three months left too.

We also learned that city breaks are not for us, but we look back on Rome with fond memories. We visited some of the great monuments in Roman history and learned an awful lot too.

The Merlin pass took us into London but we also attended some great shows. Derren Brown was a different kind of event altogether and Jimmy Carr had us in stitches. It was strange to enter Brixton Academy for a seated show, and also quite nostalgic of my teenage days to be back at one of my regular gig venues.

Our most recent adventure was to Center Parcs where we took on archery, paintballing and segways, three exciting experiences. Another new experience this year was car drifting, this was a James only activity as playing around in cars isn’t really my thing but I’d be interested in giving it at go next time.

How will 2014 compare with this? We don’t know yet but we will give it our best try!
