Well Christmas is done and dusted, and as we are mid-way through winter here in the northern hemisphere, thoughts are turning to what are we doing in the summer??? All of us with children at school are in the same situation, if we haven’t already booked (i.e. us) then we’ll be lucky to get our first choice of destination.
I have started my search and thought I’d share a few places that offer a more eco approach to family holidays for those of us with an eco spirit but no wish whatsoever to rough it!
Growing up in Scotland that nearly always meant going abroad to “the continent” (seriously, that is what Scottish people call it!) if you had the means or a bucket and spade at a rain-soaked caravan park if not! Fast forward 100 years and I am living in Switzerland by the beautiful lake Zurich, and quite frankly being here in summer is on “the continent”! In the last six years of living here we have stayed local a lot of the time, esp with young children it was just too much of an ordeal to travel far and wide.
