A-Z countries

What's this blog all about?

Hi, I'm Nicola - welcome to a blog about family travel around the world, without leaving the UK.
I love travel adventures, but to save cash and keep my family's carbon footprint lower, I dreamt up a unique stay-at-home travel experience. So far I've visited 110 countries... without leaving the UK. Join me exploring the next 86! Or have a look at the "countries" you can discover within the UK by scrolling the labels (below right). Here's to happy travel from our doorsteps. See www.nicolabaird.com for info about the seven books I've written, a link to my other blog on thrifty, creative childcare (homemadekids.wordpress.com) or to contact me.

Happy birthday to me

Nicola, Pete, Lola and Nell want to travel the world with a difference. We hope to get a taste of many countries without adding to climate change (with needless emissions from aeroplanes) or having to waste hours of holiday time in airport terminals. We hope our adventures inspire you to take a Grand Tour of your neighbourhood. This post is from Lola.

It's my birthday and I'm very happy because I've just been to a heavy horse centre and I sat on a huge Clydesdale horse called Robbie who also starred in a film I really like, Miss Potter. I also go to go in a horse and cart, pulled by a Fell pony called Poppy. On the drive we saw a hare.

Last night I saw about a million (10 says mummy) bats flying around catching insects under the bridge near our house. Bats are cool and really fast.

Thank you friends for calling me or sending me things today, you are the best. Love Lola
