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.

B is for bull

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 whatever the weather. This post is from Nicola

My dad loved this rhyme - it was in an old book helping children to learn the alphabet (I can also remember D for dahlia)

B is for bull
He's fierce and grim
It's best to keep away from him

It's not just foot and mouth that has us focusing, unfortunately again, on cattle. During our travels Nell has become obsessed by bulls - she sees them in more fields than they are in - and when we met her classmate Ethan down in Devon it turned out he has a similar interest. So this pic is of a handsome bull for all the five and six year olds out there...
