Little Adventurers hunt for giants at the Causeway

 Nine-year-old Imogen Bonner from east Belfast taking a trip to the Giant's Causeway

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

The second clip in the three-part Little Adventures series, features nine-year-old Imogen Bonner from east Belfast taking a trip to the Giant's Causeway with her mum Claire Bonner, sister Olivia (age 11) and friends Bruno Caves (age 9) and Amelie Caves (age 11).

The first video followed Cara Gallagher (7) from Newtownabbey and her family as they hopped on board the train to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra.

A video featuring Titanic Belfast viewed through the eyes of children will be released to complete the series.

The videos are accompanied by a short blog written by a young explorer.

My little adventure to the Giant’s Causeway 

By Imogen Bonner, age 9

 

So today I went on a little adventure with my sister Olivia, friends Amalie and Bruno and mum Claire on the Translink trains and buses. We went to Coleraine on the train and then got the Causeway Rambler to the Giants Causeway.

On the train we had hot chocolates and also played games like I Spy. It took about an hour on the train and then we got on the Causeway Rambler and after a while we arrived at the Giants Causeway.

First we got a snack [I got a caramel square], then we went on a guided tour which told us all about the Giants Causeway. We then went to the hexagonal stones and played for a bit. We also sat in the wishing chair and it was really comfy.

We got in line for the bus to take us back to the café, ate our lunch, bought a few things and looked around the visitor centre. Then it was time to get the bus down to White Park Bay. We got absolutely soaked playing in the sea. We did some races on the sand and although I didn’t win them all it was still really fun. We had to rush up to the bus stop or we were going to miss it and then we’d miss the train home [we nearly did].

 The videos are accompanied by a short blog written by a young explorer.

I think my favourite thing of all was the hexagonal stones in the Giants Causeway because they were really cool and good to play on. It was one of the best little adventures of the summer so far…
