Monthly Loves – August Edition

So… hey there again! It’s been a long 4 months since I last wrote a blog post on here. And yes, that’s incredibly bad of me and I should be more motivated – in all fairness, I completely lost touch with writing content and other stuff has been going on behind the scenes so here I am, writing a blog post again! Yay!

Where on earth is this year going? It’s September already and we’re now entering my favourite time of year – hello Halloween, my birthday and Christmas! I cannot wait, and I’m even more excited that I am off to Germany/Netherlands/Belgium NEXT WEEK! A week of theme parks is just what I need right now, and hopefully I will reach my 400 milestone on my coaster count – wonder what will take that spot? Anyway, since August has literally flown by, I thought I would reflect on my August favourites!

I don’t quite know why this idea came into my head – simply from compiling an email for work then I decided this would be a good blog post to write up! – but it got me thinking about those moment where you people watch when queuing up for a coaster. Even as a theme park enthusiast, you can’t deny that you will have at one point in your life, made one of these faces on any coaster – be it as a child or as an adult.

What’s in my bag: Theme Park Edition

Theme-Park-BagTheme-Park-Bag-3-2

When it comes to visiting a theme park, we would all love to have Mary Poppins style pockets that can hold everything we could ever need to take to a theme park. Imagine never having to bag faff ever again?? One can only dream! I like to think I am pretty savvy when it comes to packing my theme park bag, however I always try to bring stuff that I know I will need – even though we can’t predict what will happen on the day.

Moors Valley Country Park – Top 5 Things to Do

I have spent many years as a youngster with my family, exploring the beauty and wonder of Moors Valley Country Park. Located near Ringwood in the New Forest, Moors Valley is one of those places you need to experience if you are in the local area. There’s so much to see and do, it has become my favourite day out destination in the spring/summer when the sun is shining.

Theme Park Enthusiast Annoyances

I feel like this is a subject that isn’t really touched upon within the enthusiast world or if it does, it turns into a massive discussion/debate (I’m making a massive assumption here!). Anywho, I have been a long-time enthusiast and have observed how the community, as it were, has changed. And there are some negative points that I feel like sharing. Judge me all you want, maybe some enthusiasts might relate?
