It is no secret that booking our family holiday to Spain last month was very stressful. Would our flight get cancelled? Will we get to the airport on time? Will the prices suddenly jump up? The market seemed so unstable that I was a little more anxious that normal. We have used APH before and so I decided we had to use them again, it takes the stress out of “getting to the airport on time” and worry about the car left behind. The kids also thought it was very exciting!
We absolutely love it over at Rumble Live and couldn’t wait to try out their first overnight family camping event, which was extra special as it was on the Jubilee Bank Holiday. Rumble’s Big Family Camp Out consisted of lasertag sessions, food, drink, entertainment and space to pitch up your tent by the big camp fire. Noah and Daddy headed out to the woods to enjoy the magic and adventure.
I am sure I am not the only one, who has spent the past 18 months (and more) dreaming about flying abroad. We are not quite ready to do that, but when we do feel ready, I have a long list of family travel locations that I want to visit. The Mini Constants are so excited to get back on a plane.
I had grand plans at the start of the year to do some fun family travel posts, but as you can imagine, this plan was foiled. Something to do with a pandemic! So, instead we have been using the products I was going to mention in our staycations and a day out with the kids. Going out with the kiddies can always be tricky, but these are 5 essentials that I never leave the house without. And, they will also be on our packing list when we go away next.
We had THE best time at Rumble Live Action Gaming last week, it kicked off the Summer Holidays perfectly. It is based at Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire and it is great outdoor family fun. Plan your visit by cycling around Grafham Water, having a picnic by the lake and then trying your accuracy skills at Rumble afterwards! Or, the other way around of course.
When flying with the family I have a few anxieties, needless to say the current position across the world is not helping me at all. We have booked flights to Dubai and we are staying with friends and yes, we have travel insurance. But I am still full of fear. I thought writing out my worries and how I have overcome them may help other families in similar positions.
It is no secret we love travelling as a family, albeit we do not go away a lot. We have been lucky to have some fantastic opportunities for family holidays over the years. This year is no exception as we are off to Dubai very soon. We are so excited. It got me thinking about how do you plan for that dream holiday? Such big decisions and a ball of excitement, it can hard to concentrate. Well, that’s how I feel.
If you are looking for a family holiday with a difference, I am hoping to offer a few alternatives to the traditional package holiday, which can become monotonous after a few years. A family holiday should be a time to spend some quality time together, plus it should be an all-inclusive package that allows all the family to engage in their favourite activities. So here are my family travel ideas for 2020:
