Experiencing Dundee’s Murky Past with a Dark Dundee Walking Tour

During our visit to Newton Farm in Angus, our host Louise arranged a walking tour of Dundee with Dark Dundee. Isaac and Eliza are at the age where they find history fascinating and thanks to books and TV programs like Horrible Histories, the more macabre, the better and any tale with a ghost story had them hooked. Dark Dundee was created by two local Dundonians, Stewart and Louise who have a thirst for finding out all the dark stories of… Continue Reading “Experiencing Dundee’s Murky Past with a Dark Dundee Walking Tour”

A Panoramic View over Bournemouth

Bournemouth Wheel

Thankfully, over the Christmas period, we got to take in panoramic views of Bournemouth from a big wheel standing more than 100 feet tall at Pier Approach. Isaac and I first rode the wheel after his 100 years of Cubs parade which saw us marching through Bournemouth Gardens covered in glowsticks,… Continue Reading “A Panoramic View over Bournemouth”
