Recently I wrote about our feelings towards holidays and why we’ll always find the money from somewhere to make sure we have one. Erin has quite quickly become used to us going on holiday at least once a year and it’s something she gets really excited about, even at the age of 3. Obviously, we want Erin to know how hard we have to work to be able to go on holiday and we talk to her about work and money on a regular basis. However, we also want Erin to be able to have
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
AD | Collaborative post 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.
AD | Post contains gifted items As we are a family who don’t drive we have always had to rely on a pushchair for getting us around with Erin. We love to go away or on holiday but we absolutely hate taking a bigger pushchair with us. If we have to fold it up on the train or in a hotel room we need something as small and easy as possible. We were recently sent the Britax Holiday pushchair to try and here’s what we think of it: We have had a few pushchairs now
AD | Collaborative post Planning a summer holiday can be a massive task, especially if you’re going away with children. We went on our first holiday abroad earlier in the year and there are some things I wish I had done to make the whole trip a lot easier and a lot less stressful. Choose Clothes Wisely When I packed for our holiday abroad this year I don’t think I did a very good job of it, which isn’t really like me at all. We ended up taking so many clothes for Erin, most of
AD | Collaborative post 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
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
Just a few short weeks ago we went on our first family holiday to Majorca. Having not been abroad with a child before we really didn’t know what to expect from Erin when it came to her first flight. I tried to prepare as much as possible but everything could have gone completely wrong and nothing I’d planned could have worked. Before our holiday we tried to tell Erin what would happen on a regular basis even if we thought she wouldn’t remember or wouldn’t understand. I don’t think Erin really understand until we got
