Planning a Brilliant Holiday in the English Countryside

Both inland, and along the dramatic coast of the English Channel, the countryside of South West England is picturesque, quaint, historic and full of delightful sights and quintessentially British people. Here, you are not far from the region of England that is home to Highclere Castle (or as many television watchers know it, “Downton Abbey”) and there are several posh resort hotels in the South West where you can pretend that your family is related to the the Earl and Countess of Grantham and the rest of the Crawleys.

Among the Smoggies

The smoggies is what they were called. Or at least that’s what my grandparents, who on a humanitarian trip with a local church, had told me they were called. Made up largely of third and fourth generation Irish immigrants, though not by any means limited to a single demographic (the area seemed to be a melting pot of races from every corner of the globe), the inhabitants got their nickname from the thick layers of smog that you can see floating in the lower atmosphere like the dirty haze a truck stirs up on a gravel road.

Kidzania Makes Play Out Of Work

Parents (practitioners of the helicopter style or otherwise), often fret about what their kids are going to turn out to “be” and how much influence they will have once they’re grown up.

A company like Kidzania dispels those fears by making play out of work. Each of the 23 Kidzania branches around the world offers children a play space filled with career opportunities, where children can costume themselves, handle tools, and otherwise engage in fulfilling – or less fulfilling – occupations.
