European Holiday Destinations For Families

A couple of days ago you may have read my post about Disneyland Paris and how we can’t decide about holidays for just before Erin starts school in 2020. Disneyland Paris has such a large cost attached to it so we have to consider other places as well. Balearic Islands Earlier this year we went to Puerto de Pollensa in Majorca and absolutely loved it. We went in April and the weather was close to perfect and there was so much for Erin to do. We loved how child friendly the area was and also that the flight was only

The Disneyland Paris Debate

John and I have been married for 5 years now (our anniversary is later this month) and we got married while we were in Florida. For us Disney is part of such an important time in our lives and it was definitely the best holiday we had together before Erin was born. We have both been desperate to go back ever since but unfortunately, it’s just too expensive to go back to Florida at the minute. I think for the three of us, for 2 weeks including park tickets for Disney and Universal, we are looking at something like £7000+

Things To Remember When Planning A Summer Holiday

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 which she didn’t wear but not nearly enough for

The Toddler Who Is Obsessed With Holidays

As a child I never really went on many holidays. We had a couple of trips to Butlins and some camping trips but I didn’t go abroad until I was 18. I remember the first time I went on holiday on my own and absolutely loving discovering somewhere else. Luckily, I married a man who likes holidays and exploring just as much as I do. It doesn’t take much to persuade him when it comes to booking a holiday and he’s happy to go anywhere as long as we do it together. When Erin was born, due to us having

Britax Römer EVOLVA 1-2-3 SL SICT Car Seat Review

When I bought our previous car seat I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what I was doing. I didn’t really know what I should be looking for and I didn’t know what was good and what wasn’t. I ended up buying a car seat that wasn’t really that great for Erin. Every time she would fall asleep her head would fall forward and nothing I did would stop that from happening. That surely wasn’t very comfortable or safe for her. So, I had been looking at getting a new car seat for a while, especially as Erin is now

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

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

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
