Hello everyone! It's lovely to write again and I'm so excited to share our short holiday in Blackpool which is in the county of Lancashire, England. This is supposedly a trip with my mother-in-law, wherein Mum should fly first to Leeds to her sister as she doesn't like the boat. But we cancel Mum's flight because of her Shingles and she's not fit to fly this time. But since the kids will be back to school in September she wants us to take the kids to Blackpool as we already promised this months ago and Mum doesn't want to disappoint them. My brother-in-law looks after Mum while we are away.

Blackpool here we come!

We are taking the jeep with us and we're going there by boat. We left on Tuesday (17 August) at 2 am heading to the Port of Larne for our sailing time is at 4 am and you should be there about an hour for boarding as we are boarding with the car.

It's smooth sailing for 2 hours and we reach the Cairnryan Port in Scotland safe and sound. And it's 4 hours drive from Cairnryan to Blackpool. So it's a long journey for us!

The kids are tired because they were so excited they didn't sleep!

We reach Blackpool before 10 am and decided to have our breakfast first at Coral Island's Peggy restaurant.

Food is expensive (everywhere here), but the food and the service didn't match the price.

We are booked at Lyric Hotel and check-in time is 1 pm so we still have time to walk about the place as it's the kids first time in Blackpool they were quite excited. Just seeing loads of people, the rides and arcades put a smile on their face up to their cheeks.

I just want to share our itinerary of what we did and I will make a separate article for each of the attractions that we visited.

First Day

Look at the carriage!

On our first day, we go to the South Pier, one of the piers in Blackpool which is filled with amusements, rides, shops, arcades etc.

Then we booked for The Blackpool Tower Circus at 7:30 pm which is in the Blackpool Tower. We are not allowed to film when the show started so I just want to show you what the venue looks like.

Second Day

We went to Madame Tussaud's wax museum at 10:30 am. It's amazing, the famous people inside are well done and truly look real.

We ride on the carriage as Tia wish.

And at 3:30 pm we went to The Blackpool Dungeon. And we visited Leonora Petulengro and had a palm reading for £20 each. Then we went inside to one of the amusements and play the 2p and 10p machines and horse racing where we win pug and tiger stuff toys.

Third-Day

On our third day, we booked for the famous Blackpool Ballroom. Look how enchanting this place is! After that, we went to the beach.

We bought our souvenirs and not to forgets Lola's Blackpool Rock. We went to the Central Pier and ride the Ferris wheel and others.

Last Day

We had a go at this!!!!

On our last day, we check out from our hotel at 10:30 am and we parked not far away because we booked for Pleasure Beach. It's like our Enchanted Kingdom/Star City back home. We've been to different rides and enjoy the long queue.

Then we leave Blackpool at 7:30 pm and back to the Port of Cairnryan at 11:00 just the right time to board on the boat going back to Larne.

The entire time we were there it's dull and raining and on our last day, luckily the sun shines brightly. Nevertheless, we make the most of our stay. The street at night is lovely. It's very alive with the crowd. We ride on the tram as well.

If you will visit Blackpool, I highly recommend dining in Wetherspoon. We've been to The Albert and the Lion and at the Velvet Coaster both satisfying. As what I told you food is dear wherever you go but you will not be disappointed here. Food is served hot and delicious! Everything is booked in their app and it was fast. Only minutes of waiting time and your order will be served right away.

Here are some of what we order:

Chicken Jalfrezi with Pilau Rice, Naan Bread and Poppadoms

Sharing the streets of Blackpool, hope you like it!

That was a hectic holiday. I'm still tired right now but we had a great time in Blackpool, not just the kids but also us kids at heart! 🥰

Thank you for reading!

Oh Adereign, quite embarrassing. 🤣🤣🤣 Maybe you didn't see my post in noise.cash

I copy it: Embarrassing Moment With Tia

Yesterday in Pleasure Beach on our last day in Blackpool Tia needs to go to the toilet so I take her. So we're both inside the cubicle because even she wants to do it herself we are on the public toilet so I have to make sure I was there to give her a hand and remind her don't hold on to the toilet seat. Then while in there I might as well relieve myself. And as soon as I sat on the throne, Tia on the top of her lungs shouted,

"Mommy are you going to poop? I want to help you wipe your bum bum!" 🤣🤣🤣

I heard people laugh so hard. Why oh why Tia? 😂

Lol, imagine that Adereign! But she surely had fun. I got loads to share sweetheart.
