Whether it’s a road trip, long car journeys to visit family or friends, or heading out on an exciting caravan holiday can be a real nightmare. We drove down to Devon recently for a weekend, we had to be prepared for the children to be bored as it was a 4 hour journey both ways. From the endless chorus of ‘are we there yet?’ to the dreaded ‘I feel sick’, complaints and arguments are commonplace within the confines of the car.
This weekend we had so much fun at Undley farm near Lakenheath. Admittedly, it was quite a drive but it was worth it as the children had so much fun. I have wanted to go pumpkin picking for such a long time, but we have never made it. So this year I made an effort to make sure we went. Especially because a field of Pumpkins makes a great photo!
The most important thing when it comes to travelling with a newborn is safety and comfort (for them, not you). If you have a comfortable baby, chances are you will have a much more enjoyable ride. We travelled a lot when the children were newborns, including a holiday to Ibiza when Isla was just a few weeks old.
We’ve had our fair share of illnesses this school term. It started with the good ole sickness bug and has just ended with both children having their turn with Chicken Pox. Both completely immobilising for quite different reasons. Before Noah had chicken pox I had absolutely no idea that you are prevented from flying. We booked our holiday to Greece 3 weeks before we left and Noah came down with Chicken Pox 7 days before we flew!
I have never been to America, but it is definitely one place I would desperately love to travel to. The United States is a well spring of amazing stops for the cross-country traveller. Rich with amazing history and stunning wilderness, a cross-country trip should be a bucket list item for everyone. Below are 5 stops I would love to visit when I do make it on my grand adventure.
Have you ever considered spending your holidays in Andaman and Nicobar Islands? If you haven’t, make it a point to include it in your must-visit destinations. Its pristine beaches reflect the azure skies beautifully and accommodate a multi-hued sunset, creating picture-perfect scenery. Home to a blend of different ethnic groups, myriad wildlife, colorful marine life, and fascinating coral reefs, the place offers a holiday experience like nowhere else. And did you know? The largest sea turtle in the world – the Leatherback also resides here! Though Andaman has embraced modern infrastructures and new trends, its natural beauty and striking flora and fauna remain unspoiled even to this day.
This place is incredible. No wonder it’s called the UK’s favourite theme park. There is something for everyone here and even on a hot, bank holiday Sunday, we had a fabulous day. Our favourite area had to be the Lost Kingdom, which I will explain a little more about later. The children enjoyed the huge toy shop at the end of the day too (it’s ginormous). Here are my tips on making the most out of your day at Paultons Park.
As the summer holidays end and Autumn approaches, holidaymakers are turning to snowier climates for their next break. Ski trips are a great option for families, couples or groups of friends that love to keep active while also having a relaxing getaway, and allow you to soak in some beautiful scenery from around the world. Whether you’re a frequent skier or this is your first time, make sure you take a look at this guide to some of the essential items you need to pack for your trip.
If you love beaches, you’ll love San Diego! There’s miles of stunning coastline. If you’re a water sports lover, there’s loads of activities to keep your adrenalin racing! With so much to choose from, we’ve picked out five of the best beaches to head for.
I love a bucket list, most of the time I do not write them down. I am one of those people that until the very last moment, everything is an opportunity. Recently I have been thinking about family festivals. We have only experienced this once with the children. It wasn’t a music festival or anything, it was Blogstock. It gave us a little taster of what a bigger festival would be like.
