Exploring Norfolk With YHA Sheringham

AD | Press trip Every year we try to find somewhere close to home to explore. Somewhere we hadn’t been very much was Sheringham and we were supposed to stay during the Easter holidays earlier in the year. Unfortunately COVID-19 got in the way but we were able to reschedule for the middle of August, which was perfect for John’s birthday. Our stay was booked over a weekend, from Friday to Sunday, at YHA Sheringham. We stayed at YHA Cambridge last year and found it such a fun place to say as a family so we wanted to try out

Why We’re Planning A Family Cruise For 2022

I know I’m not alone in saying that this year’s travel plans went out the window. We planned such a fun and exciting year for Erin, knowing that it was our last chance to take advantage of term time prices and quieter breaks away. We were very lucky to get a full break at Center Parcs in March and then a shorter break to Haven later that month. However, we had a lot of trips away cancelled which, while there was no other option, was disappointing. I’ve already written about next year and what we have planned for 2021. We

Booking A Disneyland Paris Trip With MagicBreaks

When it comes to booking holidays there are so many options. Booking a holiday to Disneyland Paris is no different and if you’ve never done it before, it can be a bit of a headache. When we started to look at booking our holiday it was quite overwhelming and I went back to it so many times before making a decision. In the end, we booked with MagicBreaks so I wanted to share my experience. Choosing Magic Breaks I’ll be completely honest here, our choice to use MagicBreaks was all about money. A lot of the different websites were coming

Our 2021 Travel Plans

2020 was supposed to be the year we did loads of amazing things. We had quite a few holidays and trips away booked and we wanted to make the most of this year before Erin starts school in September. Sadly, that wasn’t to be and we’ve ended up cancelling most of everything we had planned. We did get a break to Center Parcs and a short break to Haven earlier in the year but now we have nothing else booked in. Although this year hasn’t gone to plan, it hasn’t stopped us from making travel plans for 2021. Butlins Butlins was

Planning A Family Trip To Paris

AD | Collaborative post John and I were lucky enough to visit Paris back in 2014. We spent a couple of days there for my birthday and tried to pack as much in as possible. We had the luxury of being able to do things at our own pace and picking what we did and when. Next year we have a holiday to Disneyland Paris booked as we wanted to do something amazing for Erin after her first year at school. We wanted a really exciting adventure during the summer holidays so we decided to add some time in Paris

A Walk Along The North Walsham and Dilham Canal

We have lived in this town for around 7 years now and we really don’t know much about our local area. Being non-drivers means that we’re a  bit stuck with where we can go without the help of public transport. However, being at home for the last 9 weeks has meant that we needed to explore a bit more so that we didn’t go stir crazy. With the help of some Facebook groups, we realised that there are two sets of woods within walking distance and also a canal. It’s quite bad really that we’ve lived here for this long

The Overwhelm Of Planning A Disney Holiday

Back in February we decided to start planning a trip to Disneyland Paris for August 2021. Looking back, had we known about COVID-19 and what was going to happen, I probably would have put off booking. However, we can’t go back now but I wanted to write about our experience. At the time I thought it would be easy to pick when we wanted to go and where we wanted to stay. I should have known better really. It wasn’t that easy at all! To start with, there are so many options for hotels. The official Disney hotels are close

Perfect Post-Lockdown British City Breaks

Collaborative post With the nation still in lockdown, everyone’s main focus is naturally staying as healthy as possible. But part of providing hope for the return of some sense of normality is making family plans for the future. Once you’ve exhausted the Netflix offerings, your kids are bored of TikTok, you’re tired of the trusty PlayStation4 and the novelty of Zoom and Houseparty has worn off, talking about your first physical excursion after lockdown can restore a little harmony. There’s a lot of uncertainty over when foreign travel will be possible, but there’s a good chance we’ll be able to
