Guest Post: How To Choose An AirBnB For Your Family Holiday

John, Erin and I love going on holidays, so much so that we managed to get 3 in this year. Somewhere we have never stayed though is an AirBnB and honestly, I wouldn’t even know where to start with choosing one. Today I have the lovely Cath who blogs at Passports and Adventures. I love hearing about her adventures with her family so she’s here today with some travel advice! Our family travels quite a lot, both together and separately. And our preferred accommodation for our holidays and getaways are AirBnB’s. There are a few reasons behind this which I’ll explain in

Our Family Break At Center Parcs

Last week we spent Monday to Friday at Center Parcs Elveden for a family holiday. This time when I say family though it was more than me, John and Erin though as my Mum, sister and her partner also came away with us. Last year we had a midweek break with just my sister and her partner so it was really nice that we could bring Mum this time as well. When we arrived it was lunch time so we went to the Sports Cafe for some lunch before heading off to our 3 bedroom new woodland lodge which wasn’t ready until 3pm. Erin

Why A Spanish Villa Could Work For Your Next Family Holiday

I only went on a holiday overseas for the first time when I was 18 and I loved it. A week in Benidorm and the experience of complete freedom was exactly what I needed but it also got me hooked to travelling. Over the years I have been lucky enough to go on some wonderful holidays to places such as New York and Rome. However, now we are a family of three our holiday needs have changed quite a lot and that means looking at different kinds of holiday and accommodation. Earlier this year we spent just over a week

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

Travel Sized Entertainment For The Whole Family

Being non-drivers we use public transport a lot. If we go for a weekend or few days away we have to get the train and even if we go on holiday we have to get the train to London first. It can be hard sometimes to take enough entertainment for when we travel, and also for our time in hotels, as some things can be bulky and heavy. We recently discovered Printkick where we got a great range of items for me, John and Erin! We all enjoy doing some colouring to kill some time while travelling, especially on the train

Buy A Gift Experience: London Zoo For Two Adults

One of my absolute favourite places to visit is the zoo and luckily, John and Erin love them just as much as I do. Just over a week ago it was John’s birthday and we went away to London for the night using a Buy A Gift Voucher for a hotel stay. We needed something to do while we were there though so we decided that London Zoo was the way to go. Using Buy A Gift again, we chose the Entry To ZSL Zoo For 2 Adults experience which costs £48.60. If we had bought tickets on the day to the

Buy A Gift Experience: Overnight Family Break In London At A Novotel Hotel

John’s birthday was a little over a week ago and I wanted to do something really special. Buy A Gift helped us out by sending us for an Overnight Family Break In London At A Novotel Hotel. We love going to London as a family as there is always so much for Erin to do and it means we get to spend some real quality time together. We have previously stayed at the Novotel London Blackfriars hotel and loved it so this time we wanted to stay somewhere different and chose to stay at the Waterloo branch instead. The Buy A Gift

5 Tempting Reasons To Move To Spain

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
