Welcome to another fortnight of Fearless Family Travel. Things have been very quiet around my neck of the woods. Hubby is on the road to recovery and hobbling around without crutches but is still attending physio and we are waiting to see the consultant for an update. But we’re getting there.
What I’ve been up to
Since we last spoke, my son and I spent a rather chilly weekend in Dublin with our family. Hubby was due to come with us but thanks to that broken leg, he was unable to fly. So, it was a solo trip for me and the boy.
We had a great time catching up with family and we also spent a day in Dublin city centre. We started with breakfast at a cafe that has been a long-standing tradition of my family’s whenever we’re in town. We then wandered down Henry Street and the boy was admiring the Spire (see picture below).
From there we ventured to the Natural History Museum which I haven’t been to in over 20 years. The boy loved it and it is one of the best things to do in Dublin with young kids. If you don’t want to stand out as a tourist and are headed to the museum in a taxi, ask the driver to take you to the “Dead Zoo”. If he’s a local, he’ll know what you mean!
Then, more recently, we’ve just been enjoying some quiet time together as a family, not venturing far for obvious reasons. The boy was off school recently with conjunctivitis and we decided to head to Vila Real and we brought his bike. Hubby walked along slowly while the boy cycled ahead. He did get a bit tired waiting for us though!
And finally, just a few weekends ago, I met up with my three sisters and honorary sister in London to attend a Take That concert. It was a great girls weekend and was much needed I tell you. We shopped, did a spot of sightseeing and I also got to meet up with a college buddy of mine who I haven’t seen in a very, very long time. I could do with another weekend like that right now!
Travel-wise, hubby has just landed a new contract so we’ll be waiting to see what the travel plans are like with that before we book our summer holiday. Everything has been on hold due to the leg as you can imagine. In the meantime, the boy and I have two weeks in Ireland in August to look forward to. And I cannot wait, even if it’s raining for the entire 15 days!
That’s my update for now, let’s get going with this week’s Fearless Family Travel.
