Around The UK in 80 Days Out

Everyone loves a challenge, right?

Well I decided to challenge myself.

After all, you should every once in a while….shouldn’t you?

So it began, “Around the UK in 80 Days out”. Basically, I need to visit 80 different day out locations in the UK in just 1 year.

Parks, swimming pools, theme parks, national trust properties, zoos…you get it.

80 Days Out
Keep Track Of Our Progress

Would this turn my world upside down? Would I live to regret taking on such an obscene challenge? 

Well my friends, only time will tell. So I will start….below are my days out of 2019.

Let’s see if we get anywhere near 80!

    Struggling with it at the mo. Work, weather and money are unfortunate hurdles getting in the way! We go to Devon in May so I hope to increase the number of days out then. Also got an exciting time in Birmingham lined up! Watch this space!
