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.Details

The region of Burgundy is famous throughout the world for producing some rather outstanding wine. If you enjoy a drop of Chablis, Maçon or Côte d’Or then you’re no doubt familiar with some of the names from this region.
Burgundy wines have four classifications. At the very top level are the 33 vineyards privileged to call their wines ‘Grand Cru’ – these wines are known as being the best of the region. The next tier of vineyards produce ‘Premier Cru’. There are around 585 of these vineyards in Burgundy. One easy way to tell the difference on a bottle of wine as to whether it is Grand Cru or Premier Cru is by looking at the label. For a Grand Cru, the label will simply state the name of the vineyard, whereas a Premier Cru will have the vineyard name plus the name of the village. The following two tiers are the ‘Communal Appellations’ and ‘Regional and District Appellations.’ These two tiers make up 77% of the total wine production of Burgundy.Details

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.Details
