My Recommended Private School in Hertfordshire

It took our family a long time to find a suitable school for the children. When we started looking it didn’t take long until it became clear that all the public schools in the Hertfordshire area wouldn’t be a good choice.

We are a family where sports has always played a big role. Aside from sports such as hockey, the children also have a keen interest in music and arts.

Looking over our public schools here we had been rather disappointed especially when it came to the upport sporting activities at the state of their sports facilities. The same with music. Two public schools didn’t really offer anything in that regards.

This is when we started to look into private schools where it became immediately clear to us that they by and large had much better options for sports and for music classes.

Ultimately, we decided to sign them up with the Kingshottschool here Hertfordshire since their curriculum and other offers for our children looked best. If you ask me, our decision couldn’t have been better.

Our children are very happy with the Kingshottschool, in particular and especially with their active support for sporting activities of all kinds. The oldest one is now in a hockey team while the younger one is enjoying to learn the piano.

So if you happen to be in the Hertfordshire area and are looking for private schools in Hertfordshire might want to check out the Kingshottschool too. It’s the prep school in Hertfordshire that I can recommend.

Poisonous Snakes Danger for Pets in UK

The United Kingdom reports a record level of poisonous snakes in back gardens and public parks this summer. With the increased number of poisonous adders, the only type of poisonous snake in Great Britain, increasingly more pet owners had their beloved ones attacked and in many cases fatally poisoned.

Nikki Blight from Seaford, East Sussex had her terrier Alfie badly injured by one snake in her other bark, Roxy killed while taking a walk outside.

The dog lover said to the press that they had to put Roxy down because the animals body couldn’t cope with the venom.

The other dog, once bitten on the cheek sustained substantial skin damage on its face from the bite.

Pet owners in the United Kingdom are now wanting to increase awareness among dog owners as well as people with young children

Anna Crampton, Darke Walker from East Sussex told us that she is regularly spotting the poisonous adders when she is outside. “This is the worst year on record. Take care of your pets, folks!” she said.

My Holidays in Spain

If you know me you know that I am a huge animal lover and that I love to travel Europe when I know I can rescue the one or the other poor animal. One of those countries where there are big numbers of abandoned cats and dogs is Spain. My sister just got her dog which is actually from a town near Barcelona!

I found camping really the best way for my frequent travels to Spain and Italy and in time also found that camping has a lot advantages and benefits, besides the obvious fewer expenses.

Now, make no mistake. When I say camping I don’t mean that I sleep in a tent under the scorching Spanish sun. This would be really silly and I don’t think a human being could even handle this, at least not in Summer.

When I go traveling I am renting a nice VW camper van that comes with everything like air conditioning, a fridge, a TV etc.etc..

To be honest, I enjoy my camping trips so much that I feel bad for all those people who spent a lot of money on “fancy” hotels!

The camper vans I am renting have in addition so much space that I can transport dogs and cats without a problem. Something you cannot really do with a normal car. And I can also use the camper to haul other stuff, like two months ago where we went for a wind surfing holiday at the Costa Blanca.

I am so happy with camping that we’re now considering buying our own camper. I think it would be really worth it. As for the time being we’re always booking one from a great VW camper van hire in Devon. The guys already know my schedule or I otherwise call them plenty in advance just to avoid that a van would be booked already. (Thankfully this hasn’t happened yet).

So if you love to travel lots like I do, check out getting yourself a nice camper van so you can see how much fun this can be! You also might want to check to get some ideas where to go!
