While we were away, I was rather seduced by a film that my friend M had brought for the children – My Neighbour Totoro. This is a Japanese film (which I find incredibly chic – but then I am like that) where nothing all that much happens but the kids were transfixed. Of course I ordered it right away from Amazon, along with Spirited Away (which M also recommended).
Can I also recommend Zorbing? My son thought this was a superb activity. Some of the older kids were a bit rough so I decided that my daughter was a bit small for it but my son got well into the spirit.
