As 2016 recedes, it is with gratitude and a smile that I wave it goodbye. 2016 for us was a year of planning & anticipation. And the year I started The Family Freestylers blog. A lot can happen in a year, 365 days. Decisions made that change your lives. Today we finally realised a dream of our own. Walking through the snow with our children to their first day at school in France.
Thank you so much to everyone that’s shown so much support for The Family Freestylers blog and our dream of heading to the snow. Here’s a round up of our best bits of 2016 and where we’ll be heading in 2017.
So on our first trip in 2016 we returned briefly to Chamonix to visit the Montessori school in Argentiere for the girls to have a half day taster. This post had over a 1000 hits so thank you for your support. Now that the girls have started in the Montessori school for the season, I will be continuing posts on the Montessori education and how we are finding it.
We also spent a lot of 2016 discovering amazing spots in the UK. We drove down to Cornwall in May visiting beautiful Gwithian to review the Vango Idris II campervan awning (click here to read). Gwithian is a wonderful tiny village perched on the North end of St Ives Bay. With the vast expanses of empty beach and dramatic coastline, we loved it. Long beach sessions at sunset, flying kites and sizzling sausages on a beach bbq – perfect!
A New Year is absolutely the best time to start planning your year. What dreams do your family have? What is on your family bucket list? We would love to know and hear of the adventures you’re on or the explorations you’re planning.
And to those who need a nudge, remember Mark Twain’s words, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”
Think it, book it, do it! Bonne Anneè
