If there are two things Mia loves in this world, it’s swimming and animals.
What she doesn’t know is that while we on our Caribbean Cruise very soon, we’ve arranged to go horse riding in the sea and to swim with dolphins. I think she will actually burst with the excitement. Hell, I might burst with the excitement for her!
Mia discovered swimming quite late really. Last year at the age of seven she asked if she could have swimming lessons (whenever we’ve asked if she wanted to in the past she’s replied with ‘what for? I CAN swim’. Well, she could doggy paddle very stylishly and actually get quite far, but it wasn’t pretty.
However, she started lessons and we discovered that she’s actually a bit of a mermaid. She loves it. She’s really good at it. She’s a natural.
So I take her along to her lessons every week. Curse at the blue plastic overshoes I have to put on. Curse at the soporific heat in the pool as I sit and watch. Curse at the soggy towel/costume/bag I have to wrestle with.
But then Trunki got in touch and asked if Mia would like to try out their brand new Paddlepak.
The backpacks are perfect for the beach they said. And trips to the pool. They are water resistant AND they come in styles such as Killer Whale, Dolphin, Shark and Clown Fish.
As you can see Mia is a huge fan. I did wonder if she would be too old for them, but not a bit of it. It goes to swimming lessons and it’s coming to the beach with us while we’re away.
The pack has acres of space, has a clever fold over top with clip to ensure everything stays in and nothing gets in (i.e. sand!), has a mini pocket in the tail for essentials and a special little grip for sunglasses.
