As a stay at home Mum I try to come up with new ideas for getting out and about and spending more quality time with my family. Getting the chance to get the gang together and going on small day trips and excursions in and around your area is a great way to do it.
If you have ever done your own research on how to plan your next fun family adventure and how you could do it in the most eco-friendly and economical way possible you are not alone. Finding new adventures requires time and creativity.
If you happen to live near Nottingham or the surrounding area, you will have quite a lot of options when it comes to weekend excursions and day trips. Here are a few tips to help you along your way.
Hitting the Road
If you fancy the idea of taking a trip to London there are a few ways that you can get there.
Depending on exactly where you live you can take the train, a bus, or you can drive.
There is a train that can get you to London in about 1 hour and 40 minutes and if you book your tickets a bit in advance the prices are reasonable.
Travelling by train is a great way to take in the sights of the countryside while not having to worry about traffic, directions and paying attention to the rules of the road.
This is a great option for a weekend trip to London. The trains are quick, efficient and for the most part reliable and safe.
Another option that you can consider is ridesharing.
If you are not familiar with the whole concept or how it works all you need to do is download Rideshareapps and you will be well on your way to learning everything that you need to know.
With the technology on your smartphone you simply download the app, and find your driver. You can search drivers based on a variety of different factors including proximity to your location, what type of car he or she drivers, if there is access to car seats for the children, if there is on board wi-fi and so much more.
Many rideshare companies were not very family oriented to start out with but as time passed, services like Uberfamily and many shared carpooling services directly geared to families have emerged. This has opened the rideshare industry to everyone.
It’s a Fun Family Adventure
As a family, you undoubtedly have your own means of transportation that you utilise daily to get you and your loved ones off to school, to their various activities, supermarket runs, and the like.
The great thing about ridesharing or taking a train with your family is that you can really look at it as an exciting and fun family adventure. Your kids will look forward to it and it will be something of a novelty. Rather than jumping in the family station wagon or the mini-van, the kids will be pleasantly surprised by Mum organising something so hip and cool.
