As a family who hopes to be able to do more and more travelling once baby number 3 arrives, there are several places on our family travel ‘bucket list’. As well as UK and European destinations (Cornwall, Iceland, Copenhagen, Greek Islands and Skiing), we also have some long haul ones that we’d absolutely love to experience, and also have the children experience too. One of
Since having children, my ideas of what constitutes a cracking holiday have broadened somewhat. Gone are the days where I’d simply want to somewhere hot to lounge about with banging night life- now I’ve realised that I am super-flexible when it comes to thinking about our holidays. As long everyone is happy and catered for and can spend some quality time together, then I’m sold!
Connecting with nature, sleeping outside and eating food cooked over a campfire are things we cherish more and more as we age.

As someone who is not known for travelling light, coming up with a list of my top ten travel must-haves is a always a tricky one, especially for a ski holiday where you seem to have to pack everything apart from the kitchen sink, especially once children become involved. So when Mark Warner advertised that they were once more looking for blogging ambassadors, and wanted
A clear sign that I am getting older, or maybe ‘older’ is the wrong word, is that spending time in the glorious English countryside is getting infinitely more appealing, as opposed to face down after 6 martinis in a central London bar and spending my Sunday comatose on the sofa. I think having children has made Adam and I want to spend more time in
Growing up, we had some ace family holidays to various places, but a couple of my favourites were holidays to France with Eurocamp. We stayed in resorts in the beautiful Dordogne, sunny South of France and Brittany, and I had the time of my life jumping in and out of the pool all day, making new friends and eating my entire body weight in ‘jambon et frites’
