Messing about on the riviera: A family camping trip with gold-medal aspirations

Line of young sailors going for a ride in the harbor of Collioure, Languedoc-Roussillon, France. Image shot 2012. Exact date unknown.

Since I love being with my family, I have read another story from Mail Online which is written by Nick Fagge. Nick states how he has messed up during his childhood years when it comes to sailing. In fact, he would even curl up. But he is given a second chance and this time, he is more successful. Together with his whole family, they travel to the South of France which is a perfect summer destination. Instead of being afraid, he tries sailing again. He enjoys it this time. He also tries cycling while his wife and his child are happy with their own activities. Overall, they have a good time with lots of happy memories.

Are you afraid of trying to do something like extreme sports or like what Nick had experienced? Perhaps, this is the perfect time for you to conquer your fear and be successful. Why not make it a challenge? Well, I guess good luck for all of us. By trying, we would able to know our strength and weaknesses.

Camping a family tradition

Camping a family tradition

Perhaps, you have already known that one of my passions is camping with my hubby and with my son. We have been doing this for one year and we are hoping for more years of doing it. This is the reason why I love the story from stuff.co.nz which is written by Leighton Keith. It is all about “Camping a Family Tradition”. It is the Montgomery family who frequently go to New Plymouth’s Belt Rd Seaside Holiday Park as their family tradition for 72 years already. Yes, you’ve heard it right. They have been visiting the place for 72 years already. One of the family members brings a caravan while the others would stay and sleep inside the tent. They do lots of activities like boating and fishing. They appreciate watching the kids having a great time and playing together. They are the first people who are happy when they know that the place’s future is already secured.

I wanted it to be like this. I wish my family and the family of the son in the future will be able to maintain a great tradition like this. I am really proud that I am a camper because it builds a strong family.
