Theme for the Month

This month we have got itchy feet. We are not sure if it's the change of season or the relatively stifled conditions of the recent past, but we are all yearning for a changed view on the horizon.

Have you got any travel plans in the pipeline? Have you got some amazing stories that you would like to share? Some tips for destinations that need to be on everyone's bucket lists? We would LOVE to hear them all and we encourage you to share them!

Even if the only way that you can explore is through documentaries it is amazing how awe-inspiring seeing and learning about a new and different place can be. I know that with my children firmly in their school years it will be a little while before I will fully spread my wings, but I will be very content exploring from in front of the fire at home and while camping until I can fly to another land. Where are you dreaming of going?

It's been a long time coming but we are all just about free to roam again and it's time to celebrate the weird, wonderful, luxurious and shoe-string travel adventures past, present and future!

'Travel!'

Challenge 

Challenge yourself -the slow return challenge

We find ourselves always rushing to trop to and from a destination so here is the challenge for you this month... the slow return challenge.

You might do this on your way back from the shops or a friend’s house if you aren't able to stretch your wings further this month but even in your own neighbourhood you will find that habit and efficiency dictate your moves.

So, get wherever it is you are going as you would, but on your way back, choose the slowest possible transport and way of returning. this might mean extra flights and stop overs - make the most of them and see what you can see in that time. it might mean taking the ferry and the bus, or the train or walking. It might mean going through towns you've not yet seen and finding the best meat pie on the way. Or it might be as simple as walking a different way back to your room in the building you live. Slow down, see things. 

You never know what you might come across and I guess the curiosity will lead you on a bit of an adventure.

Inspiration/Resources

This section of the members area is where we share lots of brilliant things we have found to keep you entertained and fulfilled for the month. 
We don't expect you to get to it straight away, or even get to it all! You can re-visit this section anytime throughout the month to explore. 

If you have anything you think the club would love, send it through and we can share it with everyone. 

Fun for the month

In Less, an unforgettable comic novel, we meet Arthur Less, an aging writer embarking on a madcap global adventure in an effort to outrun heartbreak. Less’ travels take him everywhere from Berlin to Paris, a ski chalet in Morocco to a Christian writing retreat in Southern India, all of it a sparkling satire of Americans abroad, as well as a bittersweet travelogue of the heart’s vagaries. Greer masterfully blends absurdity, heartache, and pure, unfettered, laugh-out-loud joy, proving definitively that yes, literary novels can have happy endings. 

A book to read

A brilliant board game

TICKET TO RIDE
This is a family favourite for both children and adults and it's one of those games that changes considerably depending on the number of players, so it stays good and fresh.  Can't recommend it highly enough!  A lot of strategy and fun!

A great podcast

Yes, it’s the brand-new podcast from the UK's top travel magazine!

Destinations included so far are AlUla, Malta, Brazil, Easter Island and the Colorado Rockies.
