Travel Timehop #25: Somerset, 2014
Holidays to remember aren’t always about the destination. They don’t even have to be about relaxation. Sometimes they are non-stop and a little bit crazy.
When are we time-hopping to?
Where in the world?
There are sports and craft competitions, as well as amateur dramatics and a carnival procession. Each event has points on offer for the winners and runners up, with trophies for the overall winners to take home. As you can imagine, some people take it very seriously.
Our Centre’s theme was Around the World in 80 Days. I don’t remember Phileas Fogg having a wife in the children’s animation (Around the World with Willy Fog) that I watched as a kid, but that was the role I played and TBT was our baby. We waved off old Phileas and welcomed him home after his travels. Other rallies played the local inhabitants that Fogg came across on his travels. There were surfers to represent Hawaii, a mime artist for France and cow boys in America.
I love the bemused look on the Tot’s face. It was all a bit surreal but good fun.
