During lunch following our trip, the travel presenter Craig Doyle told us of his holiday experiences with his wife and four young children, before we were enlightened as to this new website, http://www.iexplore.co.uk/, which, under the umbrella of the Tui organisation (including Thomson, First Choice, Exodus, Crystal and Sunsail), is a one-stop place for people seeking holiday inspiration.
iExplore has done some YouGov research and found that 75% of UK holidaymakers find that keeping active abroad helps them take their minds off what’s happening at home and in the office. However, they don’t suggest everyone goes whizzing off on speed boats and trekking up Kilimanjaro. No, they appreciate families, couples and singles will all have different budget requirements, comfort levels and an idea of how much ‘activity’ they want to do. The options range from river boating to gazing at the Northern Lights and going on safari.
I decided to try their travel profile Inspirator quiz and after assessing that I like comfy beds, too much luggage and sightseeing like a meerkat, I’m classed as a ‘Culture Craver’. I think that’s pretty accurate.

If only someone had taken a photo of me on that whale-watching trip – I’d be in with a helluva chance!
