Social Skiing meets City Break in the French Alpes – Family and solo fun in Grenoble, Vaujany and Les 2 Alpes

Feb 10 2020

During  a recent ski trip to the Isère region, I coined the term Social Skiing. As a non-confident skier, socialising on the slopes becomes almost more important than racing down the mountain. Every opportunity to meet people during social activities is essential to the success of a week in the snow. Even the most experienced skiers would agree that modern ski technology allows people to be faster than ever. After a couple of hours exploring all slopes, you really want to do other things. Resorts in Isère are catering more and more for aprés-ski attractions, such as ice skating, snow trails, pétanque, gourmet tasting, cultural activities, night-clubbing and premium shopping.

Travel with kids: Efteling Theme Park – The Netherlands’ World of Wonders

Jan 04 2020
Efteling, a fairytale theme park located in The Netherlands, is a wonderful destination for a short family break from the UK with its storybook atmosphere, natural surroundings and enchanting attractions, thrilling rides and shows. I recently visited it with my 13-year old son Diego during a promotional press trip to mark the opening of a new attraction called Fabula, a lovely 4D movie produced in collaboration with Aardman Animations. Although not made of plasticine, Fabula has lots of Aardman DNA in terms of relatable and very memorable characters. The 4D special effects make it a very immersive experience suitable for audiences of all ages.
