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 >>

It’s about that time of year that we all start thinking of holidays. When you are single and/or childless you can go on amazing holidays that are lovely and exotic and also relaxing. Unfortunately when you have kids, the reality is a little bit different! Little H is almost 5 so luckily we’ve been through the worst bits of going on holiday with a baby – travelling with a toddler isn’t fun >>
