  • January 7, 2020

If you’ve ever wondered “does it snow it Spain?”, I can tell you that it does! Just before Christmas we went on a weekend away and saw more snow than we’d ever seen before. We hadn’t been feeling very Christmassy as even in the middle of December we were still sat outside in the sun. It’s quite a weird feeling getting ready for Christmas in weather that’s warmer than summer >>

Things to do in Valencia

When we moved to Spain one of the things we were most excited about was to visit a lot more of the country. We haven’t done too badly on holidays in the past, we’ve visited Barcelona, Granada, and Costa del Sol as well as various cities on the Costa Blanca such as Alicante and Benidorm, but there are so many more Spanish locations on our list. For my birthday a >>

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.

However, ‘hot’ >>

August’s Round Up

  • September 1, 2017

Well, that summer holidays went quickly didn’t it! It only feels like 5 minutes ago the kids were breaking up from school, and now here we are in September. We’ve had a busy month as usual. I’ve still had to work for most of the school holidays but have managed a few days off here and there. We’ve made sure that we’ve stayed busy at the weekends to make up >>

7 Things To Do With Kids In Gran Canaria

  • August 21, 2017

Since returning from our holiday to Gran Canaria I’ve written a bit about what we got up to and where we stayed. There’s so much to do there and we definitely only scratched the surface. With another week or two (and more money!) we could have found plenty more to do. If you’re planning a holiday to Gran Canaria, or just looking for some travel inspiration for your next family >>

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 >>

July’s Round-Up

  • August 8, 2017

I’m a bit late with my round-up for last month as we’ve just got back from holiday. I couldn’t really remember what we did before we jetted off, so it’s nice to have a little reminder. July’s Round-Up July started off by us getting our first National Trust passes – how grown up are we?! Our first visit was to Mottisfont Abbey in Romsey, a place we’d never heard of >>
