2020 and now 2021 have been very different for everyone. For children, this has meant that everything they know as the norm has altered and there is now a ‘new normal’.
It’s quite hard to believe that we are only two months off a year from when the UK first went into lockdown and schools and business closed. When the bulk of the UK, or world even started to work from home, whilst simultaneously trying to educate children…almost a year!
I wonder how many millions of holidays have been cancelled during 2020? I know people who had spring holidays booked during 2020, optimistically re-booked for autumn 2020 and then had to cancel, re-booking for 2021, or in some cases 2022 (to be on the safe side). Have you had to cancel anything this year?
Some pregnant women travel without any issues at all, for some every time they are in a car it’s a problem.
Right now we are living in unprecedented times, as a global pandemic continues to sweep across the world. It’s fair to say that 2020 has not gone to plan for most people. Nationwide lockdowns and a ban on all non-essential travel meant that thousands of sporting events, festivals, weddings and holidays were cancelled across the world, leaving lots of very disappointed individuals.
Glamping has certainly taken the world by storm, and there are now numerous glamping facilities and accommodation options around the world that have brought traditional camping to a whole new level. Camping will always have its enthusiasts, of course, but if you’re the sort who likes the idea of being with and in nature, but isn’t really keen on sleeping uncomfortably or dealing with damp and moisture or bugs and other forest creatures, then glamping is worth a try.
Whilst none of us are going very far at the moment, that won’t always be the case. Whether it is for the sheer spirit of adventure or a force of circumstances, you will probably find yourself travelling with kids at one point.
My love of the mountains began when I was was five years old. My dad, an adrenaline junkie, booked a family skiing holiday, because he thought it was something we should try as a family. My mum, a total heights and speed-phobic, wasn’t so keen, but she went along with it.
