If there was ever a holiday I was counting down to, it was our very much needed break to the Sani Resort in Greece. Having been suffering with my health for the past 4 months, we were all very much in need of some rest and relaxation in the sunshine, and Greece did not disappoint with the amazing temperatures we were blessed with.

It had been over 2 years since we had been at the Sani Resort, as I was extremely lucky to have been invited to the soft opening of their Dunes hotel back in 2017. Sani Resort … Continue reading

The Caribbean is a special place because it’s loved by everyone. No matter what part of the world you come from, you will find it difficult to disagree that this part of the world is simply paradise. The crystal clear exotic waters that  shimmer in the sun, and sand as soft as a newborn baby. Tall palm trees that gently sway in the ocean winds. It’s marvellous in every way.

But getting to the Caribbean Islands is not easy, as they are in between South and North America. They’re also further out toward the Atlantic Ocean than any other piece Continue reading

With the subject of climate change and living sustainably being very much in the news at the moment, it got me thinking as to how sustainable we actually are when we travel. There is no getting away from the fact that we love to explore new places, and invariably those places will involve a plane journey. But what can we do when we visit new countries and cities ? How can we make our travel more sustainable ?

I thought about our recent trip to Amsterdam, and the things we did to make … Continue reading

I can’t believe that it’s taken me until my mid forties to discover the thrill of European city breaks. Our day trip to Amsterdam was when I fell in love with the city, and we returned in the summer and had three days to explore. And with Copenhagen booked for next year, I am now on a mission to find hidden gems in Europe that we can visit.

I first came across Bled when a lady on my instagram visited there over the summer, and wow it looked beautiful. Bled … Continue reading

We were kindly given two  x 72 hour I Amsterdam Cards for the purpose of this review.

If you have been following me over the summer, you will know that we travelled to Amsterdam for 3 days to celebrate our eldest turning 17. After our day trip to Amsterdam back in May, we couldn’t wait to return to the city for a longer period, giving us more time to explore. During our visit I worked with I Amsterdam, who kindly provided us with two cards which covered us for the duration of our trip.

There’s no better way to spend a weekend than by taking a road trip with your loved ones. Even as summer comes to a close, there’s no reason to put off holidays until next year. You might not be able to get time off work or school, but a mini-break can be just as good. This Saturday, you could hop in the car as a family and hit the open road. Of course, you might want a plan of action before you do that. Otherwise, you might be disappointed if your trip feels incomplete. Here’s what to prepare before road Continue reading

We were kindly invited to review the Escape Lounge at Terminal One Manchester Airport, when we flew to Amsterdam during the summer holidays. It was also a very special day as our eldest was turning 17, and we had kept our lounge booking a secret until we had got through security.

Once you get through security you need to follow the signs for the ‘lounges’ which can be found on the upper floor. We used the lift as I was using the airports wheelchair assistance, having just come out of hospital two Continue reading

Amsterdam is a gorgeous city – with a huge canal system, amazing architecture, and more museums and galleries than you can shake a stick at. Despite common misconceptions, it’s not only a place to visit with a group of friends when in your 20s. It’s a fantastic city to take the family to, and if it’s your first time there, here are a few tips to help make the most of it.

Amsterdam for the day

  1. See the museums

Anne Frank, Van Gogh, the list is endless. Amsterdam prides itself on its culture and has some of the best museums in Europe.

These museums … Continue reading

Children flying alone If you are willing to take your child on a flight as a minor, then make sure that you take all the necessary precautions for your child’s safety. Millions of people travel with their child every year to a tourist destination, or on a business journey.

As per reports, about 44,000 of flights fly across 29 million square miles every day carrying 2.7 million passengers. Out of these 2.7 million passengers, about thirty to forty percent of the people have children with them.

In this particular year, it is expected that the total number of passengers travelling by Continue reading

In complete contrast to our trip to Center Parcs last year where we had 4 days of basking in a heatwave, this year our visit to Woburn was rain, rain and more rain. This was our second year of visiting Center Parcs Woburn, and taking advantage of the shorter mid-week breaks they seem to offer in June.

We paid £199 for a 3 bedroom lodge for 2 nights, from Monday to Wednesday. At that price I was just happy to be returning to Center Parcs for our 16th visit, and over those visits we have seen every kind of weather … Continue reading
