Family travel tips #14

Welcome to the latest Family Travel Tips. With Autumn in the air, attention has switched to wrapping up warm for Halloween themed days out. The Summer sadly seems like a lifetime ago since we’ve had such awful weather the past few weeks. I look forward to seeing what everyone has been up to lately and finding out what you’re planning this Autumn. Featured posts I really enjoyed reading last week’s posts and one in particular really spoke to me. This one from the TraveLynn Family about why Sri Lanka is fantastic for young kids was fascinating. It’s the sort of…

Well that’s it for us, the Summer holidays are over. It has been a manic few weeks and I’m going to miss my little sidekicks now they’re back to school and pre-school. But it is a great opportunity to catch up with some work. I can’t be the only one to have got somewhat behind with what I should be doing! I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody’s posts and reading about your summer adventures. Featured posts There were some fabulous posts linked up last week, and one in particular I found really useful. Vicky from Earth Based Fun…

The summer holidays are still in full swing here. I feel like we’re packing things in to make up for the lack of time with the girls the rest of the year when they’re back to school. We’ve been on some fabulous days out, from theme parks to castles to secret gardens and everything in between. I hope your summer holidays have been equally exciting and I’m looking forward to reading about everyone’s adventures. Featured posts Perhaps it’s due to the summer holidays, but last weeks posts were all really exciting. There was one in particular though that I found incredibly inspirational. This post…

Family Travel Tips #11

It is a sign of how exciting the summer holidays are that the past fortnight has flown by. We’ve been camping in the mud in Kielder Forest and having a bit of a tech break. There was no phone signal at all and somewhat sketchy WiFi. So instead we spent time cycling, walking and generally enjoying the scenery. Now that we’re back to civilisation, I can’t wait to hear what everyone else has been up to! Featured posts Carrie and I had a bit of a dilemma about our featured posts this week. I had initially chosen Dave’s post about glamping…

Family Travel Tips #10

At last, the summer holidays are upon us! I don’t know about you but for us, that means lots of adventures. We’ve already been to stay at Alton Towers (we sneaked that one in before the end of term) and Warwick Castle. We have lots of grand plans for days out and camping trips over the next few weeks. I hope you’ve got some exciting travel on the horizon too. It’s always a balancing act to fit in work in the holidays though isn’t it? Featured posts My featured post this week is from TravelLynn family. It’s 12 tips for travelling…

Family Travel Tips #9

The past couple of weeks have been all about the build-up to the summer holidays for us. July is a really busy month and we’re all looking forward to winding down with a week’s camping holiday – at a campsite with no phone signal! We spent the weekend at Alton Towers thanks to Konfidence. It was probably the best weekend the girls have ever had and I’ll be reviewing the brand new cBeebies hotel soon. Featured posts My featured post for this week is this one from Joy about glamping and having a digital detox. This really appealed to me,…

Family Travel Tips #8

I have no idea where the past fortnight has gone. We have been very much keeping our heads down and getting on with things. Roll on the end of term, we’re ready for a holiday! We’ve been in birthday mode here and we’ve also had some lovely National Trust days out. I hope you have been having some exciting adventures too. But if you’ve been a bit of a homebird for the past couple of weeks like me, please do link up an old post. Featured posts As always, there were some fab family travel posts linked up last time. I’ve…
