This week we were lucky enough to be able to join The Original Tour in London, exploring the city on the classic London transport. We got to see all the classic landmarks on this beautiful sunny day on the open top red bus! Throughout our bus tour we learnt about the history of the different iconic buildings, famous stories about the Royal Family and interesting (and amusing!) facts about London itself. One of the great things about this bus tour is that when you have your ticket, you can hop on and off any of the Original Tour buses for the rest of the day!
This week we had the exciting opportunity to visit one of our local vineyards in nearby Hastings, run by the Carr-Taylor family. Linda and David Carr-Taylor planted the 21 acre vineyard in 1971, and it's quickly grown to the 37 acres site it is today. Their son Alex, together with a small team, run the vineyard and its tours. Having won 36 awards and medals since 2011, Carr Taylor's wines are well recognised and the vineyard tours highly recommended.
Meet the fun, friendly and absolutely fantastic meerkat family of Oxfordshire! Being an animal-crazy lady myself, this experience had been calling my name since I began my placement here at Experience Days. You can imagine my excitement when the opportunity arose not only to see these cute furry creatures, but to be able to feed and interact with them up close!
On the 8th September, Gemma and I woke up to a very wet and very windy Saturday morning. Usually, this would mean a movie day, but instead, we were up in Oxfordshire ready to start the day with a Motor Glider Flight!
Now this was definitely a Fast and Furious moment! This experience, located down South in the small town of Chichester, is an absolute must for speed and thrill enthusiasts. After a short drive through country lanes, Gemma and I came across a small dirt track, with signs set up outside for Forster’s Racing School. This opened up into a race buggy heaven.
