The talks will appeal to any family interested in fun, eye opening, enriching and utterly memorable family holidays.† They are designed to inspire, as well as provide practical advice and reassurance about how to plan and arrange more unusual holiday experiences with your children. You don't need to be super fit or be a family of adrenalin junkies to appreciate seeing the world in a different way.† There is no need to "rough it" either. Family adventures are more about having the desire to discover the people, culture, scenery and wildlife of your destination, spend quality time together, and share in the memories. _
