What We Look Forward To Most About Trips Away

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  It’s no secret that as a family, we love holidays and trips away. It’s not just me and John though; Erin is always asking when we’re going on holiday again and where we’re going to. As I never had many holidays or weekends away growing up this is something both John and I are keen to make sure Erin experiences. We might have created a monster actually. I love that she gets so excited about going somewhere new. Just a few days ago I posted about trying to

Where To Go On A Winter Family Holiday

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   It’s no secret that I like holidays. I like talking about them, I like researching them and most importantly, I like going on them! This year we have been very lucky to have been able to go on 3 very different holidays this year but something I have never done is to go on a winter holiday. I think this has probably been down to the jobs I’ve had in the past and always being so busy from September to Christmas. With that in mind, I’ve been looking recently

Preparing For A Family Holiday To Center Parcs

Today we are heading off to Center Parcs at Elveden Forest until Friday and this is actually our second visit there now. We only went for the first time last year (the same week) but we quickly fell in love which is why we’re going back this year for a family holiday with my Mum, sister and her partner. Last year I made a couple of pretty big mistakes when it came to packing so this year I have taken a much better approach and written lists for everything. Somehow, I managed to forget my own clothes. I think I

European Holiday Destinations For Families

A couple of days ago you may have read my post about Disneyland Paris and how we can’t decide about holidays for just before Erin starts school in 2020. Disneyland Paris has such a large cost attached to it so we have to consider other places as well. Balearic Islands Earlier this year we went to Puerto de Pollensa in Majorca and absolutely loved it. We went in April and the weather was close to perfect and there was so much for Erin to do. We loved how child friendly the area was and also that the flight was only

The Disneyland Paris Debate

John and I have been married for 5 years now (our anniversary is later this month) and we got married while we were in Florida. For us Disney is part of such an important time in our lives and it was definitely the best holiday we had together before Erin was born. We have both been desperate to go back ever since but unfortunately, it’s just too expensive to go back to Florida at the minute. I think for the three of us, for 2 weeks including park tickets for Disney and Universal, we are looking at something like £7000+

The Toddler Who Is Obsessed With Holidays

As a child I never really went on many holidays. We had a couple of trips to Butlins and some camping trips but I didn’t go abroad until I was 18. I remember the first time I went on holiday on my own and absolutely loving discovering somewhere else. Luckily, I married a man who likes holidays and exploring just as much as I do. It doesn’t take much to persuade him when it comes to booking a holiday and he’s happy to go anywhere as long as we do it together. When Erin was born, due to us having

Free Activities For Children On A Haven Holiday

Earlier this year we went on our first ever Haven holiday to Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk. Something we were interested in was the different activities suitable for Erin and more importantly, the free activities. We got a great deal on our break and we didn’t want to spend too much money while we were there. As Erin hadn’t ever done anything like this on holiday before we didn’t want to pay for lots of activities she didn’t enjoy. So, I thought I’d share some of the free activities for children on a Haven holiday (please check they’re available at the site

How To Pack For A Haven Holiday When You Don’t Drive

Being a family that doesn’t drive means that some holiday destinations are quite hard for us to get to or it means we can’t take everything we would possibly need. You may have read some of our posts recently about our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea and to get here, we had to take the bus. Luckily, we are able to get a bus 5 minutes from our house and it dropped us right outside Haven. If it had been further away, we might have struggled. As Haven is a self catering holiday park I thought I’d try to be
