Visiting Shakespeare's Hometown

Family holidays are not really the norm for your average Fijian family, I mean when you live on an island with access to white sandy beaches or rain-forest waterfalls within less than an hour's drive, you don't really need to go far do you? As a young adult, the usual once a year trip was sufficient and even then it wasn't a priority. It took working in a job that opened up opportunities to visit over 129 destinations all over the world to make me fully appreciative of visiting new places and the whole idea of wanderlust that is synonymous with travelling. Living in the UK as a Fijian expat family has its perks, you don't necessarily have to travel abroad to visit new places. There's so much history in every town and city that the UK has to offer that it makes it a little easier to feed the wanderlust of travelling, especially with children in tow.

Ice-cream along the canal, Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire, England

One such destination is Stratford Upon Avon in Warwickshire, which was our home away from home "staycation" locale for the better part of 10 days. Apart from the fact that it is the birthplace of William Shakespeare (which for me personally was the deciding factor on where we were to go for our "staycation") there are also loads of other things that you can do as a family there. Here's a few things you could enjoy with your family or on your own that I'd like to share with you:
