Reasons to visit Liverpool

According to a recent study, 40% of millennials choose their travel destinations based on how ‘Instagrammable’ they are.  It was ranked the most important factor when it comes to travel for those under 33 years of age.

Circus Funtasia Review

Wow wow wow!  Get ready as in this blog post I will share my Circus Funtasia review with you.

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll have just seen my collection of videos from today’s incredible Circus Funtasia performers and you’ll be excited to find out more about this circus in this blog review.

We were kindly offered a Circus Funtasia family ticket and we couldn’t have planned it better with the date we were able to attend being Father’s Day.  Ben was originally meant to work, but it was predicted to be a rainy weekend so he had to cancel the outdoor job he had planned.

It all worked out perfectly and we were able to spend Father’s Day together as a family with an exciting trip to the circus.

Get ready for my honest opinion of Circus Funtasia 2019 and a stack of photos! Continue reading “Circus Funtasia Review”
