Experience the Volcanoes of Costa Rica

The Arenak Volcano in Costa Rica is one of the country's 50 or more volcanoes. Over the past fifty years the Arenal volcano has been the most active of the country's six active volcanoes. An Adventure Companyholiday in Costa Rica can include time in the Arenal National Park, enjoying thermal springs and heated pools whilst viewing the Arenal volcano. A recent visitor to Costa Rica shared this blog post with us...

Q&A with a globe trotting teenage

Tom is perhaps one of the luckiest 13 year olds we know - he just got back from Costa Rica and he has travelled with his parents, Cathy and Mark, all over the world. We asked Tom to share his memories and thoughts on travelling with us.

1. What do you think of adventure holidays?

They are really fun! You get to eat great food, do great activities and explore amazing places.

2. You’ve been going away on exciting holidays since you were little, what do you like most about travelling?

Family Adventure Holiday Experiences from Cathy, Mark and Tom

The Kingsbury family, Cathy, Mark and Tom are one of our most prolifent family explorers. They have been all over the world and Tom took his first trip with us aged just 6. We decided to quiz them on their adventurous spirit.

Rosie’s blog – Around the Bay of Naples

Let’s start with Naples itself. The third biggest city in Italy, Naples is a long way from the chocolate box that is Florence  - or the ‘living museum’ of Venice. Naples is chaotic, contemporary and lively. It takes you several moments before you remember that this was the original ‘New City’ (Neo polis) as christened by the Greeks. There is of course magnificent art and culture to be found in Naples. On one of our free mornings, I took a taxi (13 Euros)  to the spectacular Capodimonte museum, high above the city.

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesuvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure. I never knew the Romans cooked fast food out on the streets in stone pots, for example. It was sad to see people who had died in the volcano, lying down looking just like us.

We stayed in three places on this trip, but in Italy, every place is so different. First we went to Naples, which was very busy and seemed quite scary at times but it was exciting. Our guide Davide paid a lot of attention to us. He was more than a guide really. He came with us to every meal and played football with us and never seemed to get annoyed, even when we teased him!

Family Summer Holidays in Andorra

I was under the impression that Andorra - that tiny principality between France and Spain - was great for skiing, but not much else. How wrong I was. Like me, many people hold the false belief that everything in this beautiful part of Europe closes down as soon as the snow melts, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Andorra has plenty to offer people who are looking for the ultimate summer activity holiday, much to my delight.
