Fearless Family Travel #37

Welcome back to Fearless Family Travel. It’s time to dust off those posts from your summer travels and link them up so we can see what you’ve all been up to while we’ve had a break.

What I’ve been up to

Our summer holidays did not get off to a great start. Unfortunately our trip to Ireland in August wasn’t the holiday we expected. We lost my Mum during our time in Ireland so it was a trip tinged with a lot of sadness.

However, we had one week after her funeral to try and enjoy ourselves so we headed to Waterford City before stopping in Kildare to catch up with family. I didn’t write up anything from our time in Ireland yet, nor did I post anything on Instagram.

Then, we had a week at home before we joined my hubby in London for a week and the boy and I packed it in. We visited, among others, the Tower of London, HMS Belfast and Shrek’s Adventure which was a lot of fun. It was just the tonic we all needed.

I’ve still got some much to share about our week in London and that’ll all be on the blog soon. Now that we’re back home we started getting ready for back-to-school, which happened last Friday. Portugal school holidays are very long.

The boy only has this week in school before we head off on another adventure, minus Dad this time, to Bluestone. I’ve lost count the number of times we’ve been and this will be our second visit as part of the Bluestone Blogger programme and I cannot wait. It hasn’t all be plain sailing with a certain blue low-cost airline cancelling our return flight to Portugal due to strike action but we’re making the most of it and will have a day to enjoy Bristol before returning home.

That’s my update for now, let’s get going with this week’s Fearless Family Travel. We cannot wait to read some more awesome travel posts.

Lonely Planet Competition

We are so excited to partner with Lonely Planet Kids for the Fearless Family Travel linky. Each fortnight we will select ONE winner from all of those who have linked up with their family travel post.

Link up your family travel post this week to be in with a chance of winning the Cities Activity book. In this activity book for urban explorers you can explore over 60 cities around the world .

The winner will be announced on 30th September, when Nicky from Go Live Young will be hosting. And please note that we can only post out the prize to those living in Europe.

Faves from last time

But, onto our regular monthly features. As always, with so many good posts linked up, it’s difficult to pick our favourites but my favourites from the last linky before we took our summer break were:

Places to Visit near Akureyri, Northern Iceland (Ladies What Travel)
