When I was practicing martial arts, my legs were thick and hairy – as most of the group. One day while on vacation my little toddler ran over and grabbed a hairy leg and hugged it – only to look up in horror as she discovered the owner was not dad 🙂 – your story reminded me of that memory.
Oh bless! I did that in a shop when I was little – my mum had got lost (in my mind!) and then I ran up to her – and realised it was the wrong mummy! 🙂
wow…glad they’re friendly giants!! I was worried your characters were about to get squashed 🙂
For once, not a dark ending from me 🙂
Lovely story Freya, an interesting holiday to be sure.
Good story! I thought the picture looked like a Maypole without the pole too! What a cute story. Thanks! Nan 🙂
I’m glad it wasn’t just me 🙂
They may be friendly giants but I hope they don’t accidentally step on our intrepid holiday-makers 🙂
I think they have good eyesight, and a light step 🙂
Remembered Gulliver’s Travels! One place’s giant is one place’s tiny creature! 🙂
Hope all is well!
Indeed it is – yes, all well here, thank you 🙂
Fantastic imagination! I love this one 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Lovely idea that a dart in a map took them here. I’d love to see their holiday snaps.
I quite fancy having the guts to do that one day – I’d probably end up somewhere really remote – or maybe that’s the whole point… 🙂
Let me know when you do it and I’ll follow suit. Hopefully neither of us will end up in a world of giants.
As long as they were friendly giants and facilities for us small people, I wouldn’t mind! 🙂
What a great way to choose their vacation spot! I’m glad it appears things will turn out well. I enjoyed the paradox in your title of an SOS call for help and a time for celebration. Very imaginative, Freya.
I was quite pleased with the misdirection myself… I must be honest! 🙂
It has to be Brobdignag — guess it’s better with friendly giant than bad dwarfd.
Indeed it does! And yes, definitely better with the friendly types.
What a relief that the giants were friendly. Glad that dart didn’t land on Siberia. 😉 Clever story.
Yes, Siberia would have been tough, I think!
Sounds like a place I’d like to visit. Intriguing.
Me too… 🙂
Loved the way you used your title, very clever. I was so relieved that the giants were friendly, hope they enjoy their holiday
Thank you, Dee 🙂
What was mum smoking? A great place to be in. A fun holiday by the sound of it.
I couldn’t possibly comment…. 😉
I so enjoyed this! What a joyous sounding holiday!
Thank you, Lorri!
Lovely and humorous fantasy trip. Obviously some airline or other is in partnership with these giants. They must both be making plenty of money off tourists to this different place. I wonder when National Geographic will catch on and print a story. 🙂 Well written.
My giants are a charitable organisation, they plough all their income back into the local economy 🙂
What a trip it must have been=-glad the dart landed there though ;-)Cool story Freya:-)
