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
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
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!
