just as the title says, we did 44 rides in 3 days! That’s a lot of rides, in fact on the second night when I closed my eyes my body felt like it was swaying. We did 12 rides on day 1, 17 on day 2 and 15 on day 3; and we will be telling you how we did all of this below. If you want to watch what we did a short video is here!

We always like to go somewhere new, have a little adventure and see what we can find in the UK. This week we asked Twitter where we should go and @BritVoyage (her blog is here) suggested the Forest of Bowland. I didn’t realise we had been there before, but only a small part of it, so I had a little look online at what is there and well, this is what we did…

Stepping stones across the river.

No matter where we go whether thats a; day trip, holiday, staycation, road trip, anywhere, we have 10 things that we ALWAYS carry with us. Now this isn’t an exhaustive list, it also isn’t the only things we carry (some things are day/holiday dependant), but it is a list of our personal essentials. The reason for this list is a simple ‘what do you not like to leave the house without?’ Feel free to answer that question in the comments. 🙂

My ‘must haves’ wherever I go.

We like to fill January with random days out, especially with ‘January Blues’ it is nice to stay busy. So we randomly came across this ‘secret nuclear bunker’ online – we sometimes just Google ‘things to do in …….’ and pick an area just to see if there’s anything we’ve not done.

The Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker is a former government-owned nuclear bunker located at Hack Green, Cheshire.

We randomly decided that we wanted a night away. Both of us always enjoy staying in Lancaster so thats where we decided to go, just for the night. In this post we are going to talk about staying at the Holiday Inn for the first time, how cold Lancaster is in January and our favourite place to get pizza (not just in Lancaster, our favourite place anyway).

Due to living in the North of England, getting to places such as Legoland, Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures isn’t easy to do as a day trip. So just like we did back in October, we decided to go and spend a few days visiting the different parks with our Merlin Annual Passes

The plan was:

  1. Warwick Castle on the way down (Saturday),
  2. Chessington World of Adventures (Sunday),
  3. Legoland (Monday),
  4. Thorpe Park and then straight home (Tuesday).
