Normandy, France

Today is Remembrance Sunday, a day to reflect and commemorate our military and civilian servicemen and women who have contributed to war and conflict. A British tradition I do not ever want to see fade out! A few years ago on this very weekend, we travelled to the Normandy Beaches after Finn decided to interrogate his… Read More Normandy, France

Nerja, Costa Del Sol

Nerja is a mountainous area of Costa Del Sol with spectacular views from above and stunning Mediterranean scenery from the coast. It is a sleepy fishing village that is close to Malaga airport, so this was our go-to destination when travelling with a toddler and a baby, and a Bearded man who likes fishing and seafood.… Read More Nerja, Costa Del Sol

Loret de Mar, Spain

Whilst pregnant with Finn, we decided to have an impromptu break away with Josh on the cheap. Beard was in the process of changing jobs and we had just finished renovating our first home so money was tight. Searching online, the best value for money was coming up as Spain – the good old fail-safe… Read More Loret de Mar, Spain

Sharm El Sheik, Egypt

We have a friend who goes to Egypt every year with his family to do water sports. In particular, he has always said what a fabulous country it is, so as a group of 25, with kids ranging from 6 to 16 we went on an adventure. The first thing we noticed was the price,… Read More Sharm El Sheik, Egypt

Bodrum Holiday Resort & Spa, Turkey

Turkey is the go-to destination for us Brits, around 2.5 million of us venture across the Med to escape for a week or two every year, yet tourism in Turkey is down by approximately 34% since August 2016. According to the home office fears over safety since the military turned against the government, plus further… Read More Bodrum Holiday Resort & Spa, Turkey

Grand Bahia Principe, Dominican Republic

I’ve visited the Caribbean before having children; Barbados was my first Caribbean island, then St Lucia and finally Antigua – they are all beautiful in their own way with crystal clear water, swaying palms, vast splashes of colour from the coral, the fluffy white clouds in the bright blue sky and the locals beaming smiles… Read More Grand Bahia Principe, Dominican Republic

Santa Teresa Gallura, Sardinia

If someone showed me this picture a year ago and asked me where and when I thought it was taken, the last place I would say would be Italy at the end of October… This is Sardinia; a stunning, beautiful, glorious and mesmerising little island in the Med. One golden rule, so you don’t say… Read More Santa Teresa Gallura, Sardinia

Le Petit Fort Hobbit House, Bellac, France

The first time I had ever heard of Airbnb was through one of my friends. I remember her stunned expression as I stated we had never even heard of the flying bed and breakfast of which she spoke of. Alas, AirBNB is genius – lots of people offering out their places from the weird and… Read More Le Petit Fort Hobbit House, Bellac, France

Tilmun Farmhouse, Gharb – Gozo

There aren’t many people that have heard of Gozo which surprises me as so many people have heard of Malta; Gozo is a tiny little island accessible by ferry after flying direct into Malta, and it is a stunning place of natural beauty with the friendliest people I have ever met. Directly after booking our… Read More Tilmun Farmhouse, Gharb – Gozo

Wills Lake, Limousine – France

Beard has been fishing since he was a nipper, and apparently, now he has ankle-biters of his own, he has no free time to get to the lake regularly. In comparison, despite this clouded judgement (because he can go whenever he wants), I have to remind him we have been on some fab fishing holidays over… Read More Wills Lake, Limousine – France

Notaires Lake, Limoges – France

The last time we enjoyed a family and friends fishing trip, we had an absolute blast and were thoroughly spoilt at Wills Lake. This time around there are more of us, as our friends have finally managed to bag themselves girlfriends – well-done lads, we knew you’d get there in the end! We love a… Read More Notaires Lake, Limoges – France
