Everybody loves a bumper holiday – better still a bumper holiday at sea. Better still bumpers on sea.
For a feardie like me (I blame my brother for throwing me on the waltzer when I was a small kid) the bumper was always my go-to at the fare.
Only I knew them as dodgems, and they became part of my holiday experience.
With Tramore, Co. Waterford and Salthill, Co. Galway particularly fond memories.
So what must it be like to be driving around in circles bumping your Mum while on a cruise ship?
