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.

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

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

A Short Break To Haven Seashore

Last month, before all the government advised against any travel that wasn’t essential, myself, Mum and Erin went to Haven Seashore in Great Yarmouth. We’d had the break booked for months having got a really good deal for a Monday to Friday stay for only about £70. With Erin starting school in September I knew that this would be my last opportunity to go away for my birthday unless it fell on a weekend. I couldn’t pass that up. Unfortunately, John had to work so he wasn’t able to join us. Arrival Day We visited Haven Seashore in 2019 so

Crazy Science At Center Parcs

Over the years we have been to Center Parcs a couple of times but Erin was always really too young for a lot of the activities. This year though during our visit in March she was 4 so able to do a lot more. While we were there my Mum booked Erin in for the Crazy Science session on the Thursday morning. The session lasts for 1 hour and you should be there 10 minutes before the start time. Crazy Science is in the activity den so it’s really easy to find. As we arrived at the activity den ready

Cupcake Decorating At Center Parcs

On our most recent trip to Center Parcs Erin was finally old enough to be able to do some of the great activities that are on offer. Due to a broken elbow that had just had a cast off we wanted to book something but nothing too boisterous. Cupcake Decorating sounded great, especially as baking was something that Erin had been doing a lot with her Grandma. This activity cost around £12 and lasted for 45 minutes, aimed at children between 3 and 7. Our class only had 2 children participating and was run by Elleigh. Each child gets 4
