Travelling times: our "bests" of 2013

Welcome to
We have been really lucky to visit some incredible places this year, but which ones have been particularly brilliant? Here are our top ten!

Best Beach

essica says: The best beach of the year, and probably the nicest one I've ever been to, was the famous seven mile beach at our holiday in Beaches Negril (post coming soon). The beautiful blue sea seemed to stretch out forever and the white sand was soft and lovely to walk on. This was combined with the wonderful weather - always hot and barely ever a cloud in the sky.

Best View

Robert says:
My best view was in Austria (read our post here).When I looked out of my hotel room window I could see enormous grey mountains. When I looked higher I could see no grey just a big blob of bright white snow. I could also see beautiful dark green hills. I thought it was a great view because there weren't any buildings in the way.

Jessica says: My favourite view ever was looking out of the window on our flight to Jamaica. The Caribbean looked incredible from above. The sea was clear blue and there was such a variety of colours. My favourite part was looking at the change of blue in the sea and an island that looked like a giraffe with a massive foot!

Best Day Out

Robert says
: My best day out was by far the London Bridge Experience and The London Tombs. It is fun, scary, interesting and funny. I liked both parts, the educational and the scary, but some people do find the London Tombs terrifying. Click here to see my post.

The Chocolate Festival - My Heaven! By Jessica

Yesterday, my mum and I visited "The Chocolate Festival", a wonderful festival based entirely around chocolate, and situated on the South Bank in London. One of the first things anyone learns about me is that I ADORE chocolate, so a whole festival about it had to be one of the best things ever!

The festival ranged from more well known brands such as Hotel Chocolat

To ones which I'd never heard of, such as The Village Workshop

The London Bridge Experience and The London Tombs by Robert

The London Bridge Experience

Robert, aged 8, loves anything scary, so what would he think of the London Bridge Experience and Tombs? Find out by reading on...

Go on an adventure through the history of  London Bridge. Travel through fires, shops, workshops and more, all on  the same amazing day out. At one point you are in a room full of severed heads!

You will also learn what happens after the executions (all done by a particularly nice guy named George.), become a roman soldier, and find out about wintertime on the bridge. My favourite bit of the Experience was when the owner of a pub gave me a gun, said "you're the guard now, look at the crime scene", and told me to check in the next room. I also liked going in a passageway which moved up, down and diagonally. It was fun, interesting and had a lot of loud sounds and vibrating chairs.
