Welcome to the Sixth Edition of TT Strange Times!

TT Strange Times Issue 6 - Keeping Families Entertained

News, ideas and inspiration from us in these strangest of times.

Hello and welcome to the sixth issue of TT Strange Times!

Regular readers of TT Strange Times will hopefully know by now that we wanted to offer a fun resource for puzzles, games, ideas and information to help us all through these uncertain times.

It’s well-known that the lockdown has been very difficult for many people, in many different ways. Each issue of TT Strange Times has a different theme and for this sixth edition, we wanted to look at the importance of sport and generally keeping active, as exercise is well-known for being good for mental as well as physical well-being. Therefore, our current issue is dedicated to…

Sport for Health

TT Strange Times: Sport for Health - "Can I kick it"? Yes, if you're in a  controlled environment and away from windows and glass doors that can be easily damaged. Otherwise, no, actually...

Although, sadly, recent events have forced the cancellation of so many key sporting events this summer, including Wimbledon, the Euro football championships and the Olympic Games, to name but three, these will all take place next year; something to look forward to!

However, we have taken specific inspiration from Wimbledon and the Olympics, as well as famous British sporting venues, for this issue of TT Strange Times. As a celebration of all things sporting, here’s what’s coming up in this edition…

For our Inspirational People for Inspirational Times section, we look at British Paralympian Lauren Steadman, who, to date, has competed in three consecutive Olympic Games.

Moving outside for our dose of FRESH AIR FUN, what better idea could we recommend as a way of getting fresh air and exercise, and escaping the four walls of home than a Treasure Trail?

For Getting YUMMY With It… No need to go hungry whilst out and about and the restaurants and cafes are closed – go prepared and pack up a picnic!

TT Strange Times: Sun's out, buns out... Time to dust off that picnic basket and head to a socially distant and safe outdoors destination...

Our TOP Five… this time around looks at our choice of the best sport-themed films.

Once you are done with that, do you fancy having a go at this issue’s competition? It’s an I-Spy challenge!

Submit your entries to us and the best could win a gift voucher to use on your next Trailing adventure.

As always, we hope you enjoy – and don’t forget to share this with friends and family. #TTStrangeTimes

Stay alert – and STAY SAFE!

Editor-in-Chief, Tristan.

TT Strange Times: Let's hope the weather this summer isn't bad enough to consider "road swimming" as an acceptable sport!

Welcome to the Fifth Edition of TT Strange Times!

TT Strange Times Issue 5 - Keeping Families Entertained

News, ideas and inspiration from us in these strangest of times.

Ah, greetings dear traveller, have you come far? Forsooth, it is time now for the fifth issue of “TT Strange Times”!

While we too are isolating along with the rest of you, we wanted you to have a fun resource for puzzles, games, ideas and information to help us all through these uncertain times.

Each issue has a different theme and for this fifth edition, we wanted to look back in time for future inspiration in the form of our compendium, that for one issue only, is dedicated to…

History

TT Strange Times: History - there's a lot of it! Do you think this is the original 'Knight Rider'? David Hasselhoff would probably approve but the horse maybe not so much, with that red light constantly swooshing left and right in front of it's eyes...

Brace yourself folks – this is what’s coming up in this edition…

For our Inspirational People for Inspirational Times section, we’ve a fascinating look at early Viking explorer, Leif Erikson, who may or may not have cause to upset Christopher Columbus. (The explorer, not director of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone‘, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets‘, ‘Home Alone‘ (both 1 and 2 – Lost in New York’ (featuring a cameo from Donald Trump no less)), ‘Mrs Doubtfire‘ and ‘3-D Rocks‘ among many others).

Although, thinking about it, maybe even he could be a bit upset about it too? Who knows.

Err, anyway, moving on…

As we take a seat in the INDOOR ARENA, we thought we’d go all ‘BBC at Christmas’ and offer you another chance to revisit a historical figure, Ross Poldark – as we encourage you to answer several intriguing questions to discover which Poldark character you are – and then expand on your character choice in a fun way!

Moving outside for our dose of FRESH AIR FUN, we’ll get tethered together to hobble along as we take part in the Three Legged Sprint – event five of utterly unheard of outside of Treasure Trails’ The Treasure Trails Garden Games Modern Pentathlon for 2020.

For Getting YUMMY With It… tonight we’re going to party like it’s 1499 – in the form of the grandest of grand Tudor feasts, the likes of which would probably even give King Henry VIII indigestion!

TT Strange Times: Buff up those lenses - you're gonna need them crystal clear!

Our TOP Five… this time around looks at our choice from the vast amount of fascinating History books (for kids) that are available out there.

So, you’ve seen our suggestions for FRESH AIR FUN – in the form of The Treasure Trails Garden Games Modern Pentathlon for 2020 – but we will be turning the spotlight onto YOU for this edition’s competition!

Submit your entries to us and the best could win a gift voucher to use on your next Trailing adventure.

Once you’ve exhausted yourself physically with all that running around and jumping over stuff, pull up a chair and set the dial to chill, as you have another chance to exercise the ol’ brainy-muscles with our choice of dastardly mind-twisting puzzles.

As always, we hope you enjoy – and don’t forget to share this with friends and family. #TTStrangeTimes

and look – I even managed to get through all this without saying the phrase ‘Ye olde’… Oh…

Anyway, be seeing you!
