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.

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

What To Expect From An All Inclusive Holiday Package

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

How To Add Luxury To A Family Holiday

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
