Little Adventurers become travel bloggers for the day

  Check out the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra with Cara

YOUNG explorers have teamed up with Translink to produce a series of videos and blogs about their favourite visitor attractions in the north.

The three-part series, called Little Adventures, will feature clips of kids enjoying family fun days outs.

The first Little Adventure sees Cara Gallagher (7) from Newtownabbey and her family hop on board the train to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra.

Two more videos, featuring views of Titanic Belfast and The Giant’s Causeway through the eyes of children, are to be released later this week.

The videos will be accompanied by a short blog written by a young explorer.

My little adventure to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum

By Cara Gallagher, age 7

I went to the train station with my mummy and my little sisters Ava and Ríona and my cousin Rosa. We met our auntie and our other cousins there. Their names are Erin, Toby and Bertie.

We took the train to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. On the way we saw mermaids in the sea! When we got there the first thing we did was go on old-fashioned trains, it was so much fun!

The first video features a trip to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum 

We went to another room with buses and firemen. Next we went up the hill to the Folk Museum, where we had our picnic.

Then a man showed us how they made newspaper in the olden days and a police officer had sacks and we had a sack race! We also did an egg and spoon race and played hopscotch.

We split into two groups, one group went to the sweet store, the other got their picture taken in the old way and we got to go on a horsey. We went home again on the train. It was a great adventure!
