Our first stop on the tour are a favourite for guests young and old. With all of the different rides, shows and other attractions there is plenty for everyone in your group to enjoy. Our home park Busch Gardens Williamsburg is the feature of today's post.

The park features 8 coasters and dozens of other rides and attractions. It is themed on several European countries and the theming is among the best you will see anywhere. It has won the Most Beautiful Theme Park award many times. 
Favourite Ride(s) My favourite ride is Apollo's Chariot as it is a smooth ride, lots of speed and air time.

The Loch Ness Monster features an interlocking loop. Still going strong over 40 years later.

2021 A-Z Challenge Theme Reveal

For those that are not familiar with the A-Z challenge it is an event held each April where hundreds of bloggers post each day on a topic. Each day is a different letter starting with A on 1st April and finishing with Z on the 30th. Before we start the challenge many of us post and reveal what our theme is for the challenge. It has been a few years since I have participated but this will be our third time participating in the challenge.

So without further ado the theme for this year is........

Amanda and I love to travel and see new places. We have not been able to do that much recently due to the pandemic so i thought looking back over some of the places we have seen over the years would be a great topic for the challenge. We have not visited Mexico so the locations featured will be in the United States and Canada.

The locations we feature are all places we have visited and the photos are ones taken by myself or Amanda (or possibly one of our family members) So bookmark us and come back each day in April to join us on our virtual tour of North America. No passport or boarding pass needed.

What is your theme for the A-Z Challenge? Can you guess what some of the locations i will feature will be?
