What is Wake The Tiger in Bristol? (Honest Review)

I recently took my eight-year-old son for a weekend in Bristol. I was hoping to visit We The Curious as we hadn’t been since he was tiny, like two years old, but unfortunately, it was still closed. The last time I tried to visit it was also closed due to a rare solar panel fire, so I took my daughter who I was with at that time to Bristol Botanical Gardens instead, but where to take my son instead that he’d enjoy?

A quick internet search and I discovered Wake The Tiger, an “amazement park”! It looked intriguing and a visual feast for the eyes, so I booked it and hoped he would enjoy it.

In this blog post, I’ll share my Wake The Tiger review and explain exactly what this curious named experience is.

Tips for working remotely effectively while travelling + on the road

Being self-employed and working online is great, it means I can work from almost anywhere at any time.  However, running a self-employed business is not without its challenges and one of these is there never being any time off.  Sure, I can actually decide to take a week off, but I’ll lose a week’s pay and the chance to apply for any freelance work that pops up that week, so really I could lose even more than one week’s pay.  This means that whenever we are travelling, on holiday or on the road, I also need to work.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, even more people are finding they are able to work remotely.  Employers are allowing staff to work from home, which is giving more people the chance to work from wherever they choose.  Perhaps you are not self-employed like me, but you can work from home and have realised you can also work on the road whilst exploring new places.  But how can you work remotely effectively whilst travelling or on a road trip?

Read on for some top tips for how to work remotely effectively.
