It’s been a couple of months now since we went on our first holiday abroad to Port de Pollensa, Majorca, which is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands. Today, we have teamed up with immoabroad.com, who specialise in selling, buying or renting a home abroad, with a specialty in France and Spain, to talk about the benefits of moving to Spain as a family. Since our holiday in April to Majorca I think John and I fell in love a bit with the area. Usually when we go away on holiday I don’t ever come back thinking about what it would be like to live
At the age of 32 I had never been on an all inclusive holiday. I don’t know why but they had never really appealed to me before. I went through a crazy drinking phase before I was even legal to drink so by the time I was going on holidays I wasn’t interested in going somewhere to drink my money’s worth. When we booked our recent holiday to Majorca I wanted to not have to think about much while we were there so we splashed out and went all inclusive. However, I really didn’t know what to expect when we
If you are a family with pets then going away on holiday could become a real hassle. We know from experience that sorting out either sitters for your pets, or putting them into kennels can cost a small fortune and that’s without making sure all of their jabs are up to date. Dogs especially are sociable pets and love to be with their family, not stuck in kennels. Before you decide to take your dog away on the family holiday though there are a few things to consider so here are some tips: Destination Choosing a destination for your family
Sometimes, when you think about family holidays your mind might instantly go to holiday parks, camping or cheap and cheerful beach holidays. When I was growing up we never really had many holidays but we did go camping a few times and we went to Butlins twice. In my mind, these are sort of stereotypical family holidays. However, there are so many ways that you can add some extra luxury to a family holiday and here are some ideas: Accommodation Upgrades When booking a holiday you generally have to choose what kind of accommodation you want to stay in and
You may have noticed that we have just come back from a holiday abroad but that doesn’t stop me thinking about where else I might like to go if I got the chance. It seems like holidays to Dubai in 2018 are quite popular so I’ve been looking in to what we could do there as a family. Here are some ideas: Kidzania I know we have a Kidzania in London but we haven’t had the chance to take Erin yet as she’s been too young each time we visited the city. However, Kidzania Dubai advertises being suitable for children aged 1
Just over 2 weeks ago we jetted off to Puerto Pollensa, Majorca for our first family holiday. We actually booked this in March 2017 so we had a very long wait for the date to actually come around. I had been on major countdown for weeks and by the time our holiday came around I was absolutely bursting and so were John and Erin. I’m not going to go into loads of detail about our whole holiday, because that would end up in one massive post but here is some of what we got up to and quite a few pictures!
Although we have been for plenty of weekends away since Erin was born, and even a holiday to Center Parcs, we had not been on a family holiday abroad until last week. As it was a pretty big deal I wanted Erin to get excited and this meant getting her some luggage of her own; a Trunki. I had seen these before Erin was even born and I thought they looked like so much fun. I mean, who doesn’t want a suitcase they can ride on? It took me quite some time to decide on which Trunki to choose for
Isn’t the first normal day back from a holiday the worst? Our flight landed back into Stansted yesterday at 3pm and we didn’t actually step through our door until 7:30 after a 3 hour train journey home. We have never done so much travelling with Erin in one day and she was absolutely exhausted! I’m really glad that John took today off work instead of going straight back because now it means we get a day to get ourselves back to normal. Of course, after 10 days away we have come back with a whole load of washing to do and work and
