Adventure - The Gallery

Having just finished reading The unlikely Pilgrim of Harold Fry, the first of my 50 books to read this year, the topic of adventure was quite appropriate for this weeks Gallery theme. Harold finds himself walking over 600 miles wearing a suit and yachting shoes (not quite so appropriate!) to visit a friend that he hasn't seen for 20 years who is terminally ill. His adventure takes him across fields, through hedgerows and along busy roads to reach his goal.

Although we enjoy the great outdoors too, the biggest adventure I have experienced with the Mini Mes so far is our first holiday abroad as a family to Cyprus.

The new foods, the heat and humidity, the different language and even the flight itself was a big adventure for us as a family, but particularly for the Mini Mes who had never been away from English soil before.


I love how Minxy is trying to be cool in her swimwear and their expressions at seeing such huge drinks with flags in!

I can't wait to fly away to somewhere hot again soon... the sooner the better.


What has been your biggest adventure?


The theme this week is Adventure.

  1. Drinks with flags in pleases me very easily!! Hope it was a great trip. I know it felt like a massive adventure the first time we went abroad with z too...a kind of very nerve wracking one but it was ok in the end :)

  7. looks like such a fun holiday - quite fancy that drink myself.

    Think parenting has been my biggest adventure - it's a non stop rollercoaster, although I wouldn't change it for the world!

  8. Any trip abroad with children is definitely an adventure, looks like they have a taste for it though :)

  9. I'm super impressed by a drink with a flag in, so I imagine kids would go mad for it. Looks like your kids had a lot of fun.
