Well, so far, our June has been a washout here in GOWTK HQ. If, like us, the weather has been more than a bit damp, here are a few posts to whet your appetite for family travel and adventure in warmer and dryer locations.
A few weeks back in the May school half-term, we went over to Lake Annecy in France. This is a stunningly beautiful location, and there are lots to see and do. Read our posts below or watch our video on YouTube.
If you’d like to think about travelling further afield, how about hiring an RV and travelling across the US? We have an article on how you might go about that too!
