A fresh look at France

To paraphrase Dr Johnson, if you’re tired of France, you’re tired of holidays. It’s the destination that never ceases to intrigue, delight and inspire.

Experiencing the real France means exploring villages unchanged by centuries, witnessing local festivals, eating local dishes, and above all meeting the real people for whom those magical landscapes are the background to everyday life.

A night at the museum…

No, this isn’t a blog post about a Ben Stiller film. Much as I’d like to spend time reviewing it, this post is actually to tell you about something rather good that’s happening this weekend.

Free entry to loads of different museums, all over Europe. At night. Oh, and did I mention it’s free?

Basically, on Saturday 16 May 2015, museums all over Europe will throw open their doors after usual closing hours and invite the public to come and explore. Some are ‘roam free’, while others hold special events or talks.

There are thousands to choose from. If you’re on holiday this weekend, the website has useful links to what’s on where.

Game set & match – the French Open

I love watching tennis. It’s the only sport my husband and I agree on, and we’ve always wanted to watch one of the Grand Slams live. Australia and the US Open are a little out of our price range, and we hadn’t been organised enough to enter the ballot for Wimbledon tickets. The French Open however, seemed like a possibility. Tickets were easy to buy online, so we decided to combine our trip to the tennis with a holiday at the campsite at Berny Rivière, around an hour north of Paris.

8 hours in Amsterdam

If you’re holidaying at Camping Duinrell in Holland this summer, the obvious choice for a day trip is Amsterdam. Easily accessible from the campsite, either on Holland’s super-efficient bus and train network, or by car (though we’d suggest park and ride rather than driving into the city), there’s loads to see and do.

While it would be impossible to cram everything in to one day, it is possible to see a lot as the city centre is fairly compact.
