Futuroscope

Futuroscope is a theme park in Poitiers France.
But it’s a theme park with a difference. No roller coasters, no big thrill rides, well there is but not the usual kind.

As the name suggests Futuroscope is about technology and innovation. “Oh boring” I hear some of you say, and the techie geeks amongst us start to get excited.
The park is the 2nd largest theme park in France many of the attractions are based around cinema technology, IMAX technology is extensively used. Continue reading “Futuroscope”

Things To Do, before “The Big Trip”

It’s now only 4 weeks until our “Big Trip” so it’s back to Nerd Central, list making.

Now the decisions start. When we get off the tunnel do we turn right or left?
Left means we are going to head down the A26/A1 and into Paris, across Paris to Orleans then down to Limoges on the A71/A20 and on to Tolouse. Which is probably the most direct route or do we…..

Turn right and go via Abbeyville, Rouen, Le Mans, Tours then cut across via the A85 and pick up the A20? Continue reading “Thinking About “The Big Trip” Again”

A Long Weekend on Anglesey

We spent the May Bank Holiday at Dafarn Rhos in Moelfre on Anglesey.
Lancs & Cheshire D.A. have organised a THS(Temporary Holiday Site) running from 19th May until 11th June.
We joined the rest of the happy campers on Friday 26th after a long hot day at work we then spent around 3 more hours sitting in traffic on the M56 and the A55. Continue reading “A Long Weekend on Anglesey”
