A Day Out At Rīo Safari Park, Elche

  • June 26, 2019

It’s been a while since I wrote a day out post so thought I’d do my first Spanish family day out! I’ll be writing a lot of posts about things to do on the Costa Blanca with children as we explore more, so if you are planning a holiday to this area of Spain keep an eye out for my suggestions of things to do with kids in Alicante and >>

Viva España! Our Family Summer Holiday

  • August 17, 2018
Viva España!

I’m currently in one of those back-to-work post-holiday moods so thought I’d write a little holiday blog post to cheer myself up and let you all know what we’ve been up to. A couple of days after school finished for the summer holidays we jumped on a plane to Alicante. Normally I’d say in search of some sun, but it was still pretty hot here when we left. However, ‘hot’ >>

9 Reasons Why Travel Isn’t Wasted On Young Children

  • July 30, 2018

We love our holidays! I honestly don’t know how we’d survive working every day without a holiday of some kind to look forward to. Little H is now 7 and so far we’re lucky enough to have made it to Spain, Florida and Gran Canaria. We have a lot more places on our travel bucket list but it doesn’t matter where we go, we just need to get away for >>

We count ourselves very lucky to live in what we consider to be the best parts of the UK – it must be since a lot of people choose to come to Bournemouth and Poole on family holidays. Having lived here for almost 40 years (eek!) my husband and I know the area really well and definitely have our favourite beaches. We do tend to go to the beach more in >>

  • October 16, 2017

Since we went to Florida last summer I’ve had a lot of friends ask me about who to book with and how we booked our Disney World holiday. We didn’t go through a travel agent and saved quite a bit of money so I thought I’d share my tips on how to book your own holiday to Disney World and save money. There are some cheap Disney World packages out >>

How To Keep Kids Happy When Travelling + Win A Trunki Travel Pillow

  • September 11, 2017

Travelling is one of my favourite things to do. We were lucky enough to visit a few far flung places before having Little H which we’re very grateful for because travelling with kids is an entirely different experience! Just going on just a short car journey can test your patience to the limit if the kids are grumpy/tired/bored, so going on a plane definitely needs some preparation. All parents know >>

A Taste Of Africa At The Lopesan Baobab Resort, Gran Canaria

  • August 17, 2017

I wrote last week about our holiday to Gran Canaria and promised I’d write all about the hotel we stayed in. When I saw the Lopesan Baobab Resort online I thought it looked stunning – an African themed resort in the area of Meloneras. I read lots of reviews, looked at photos and knew we had to visit! We flew with Thomson on stupidly late flights and didn’t get to >>

  • August 12, 2017

You might have noticed from some recent posts that we’ve been on our summer holiday. As soon as school finished for the summer we headed off somewhere sunny and I’m pleased to report that we had the most amazing time! We weren’t really fussed where we went, our main requirements were lots of sun and a pool. Having been to Tenerife before and not being too keen on it, we weren’t >>

How To Pack Light For Your Holiday

  • July 21, 2017

We’re off on holiday shortly (I think I may have mentioned it!) and very excited about it. I love planning holidays and am always thinking of where to go to next. I’m not quite so keep on packing though. I did a Holiday Checklist recently to make sure we don’t forget any of the major things like passports, so fingers crossed we have everything. I’ve just taken a break from >>
