Holiday Advice Needed! 🌴
You may know already that our routine is somewhat different. Jamie works right over Christmas, Easter & Summer Holidays etc. However, like I say to lots of people in similar situations - your normal doesn’t need to reflect another persons. It’s during these school holidays I often find is the best time to start planning our own little adventures instead of comparing our circumstances to another’s. So although we don’t get the usual holidays, we get around six weeks every year between May and June. It’s something we are SO grateful for and I truly wouldn’t change it. Although it does mean a lot of last minute planning as this too can change at the drop of a hat!
Last year was the first year we didn’t squeeze in a lot of abroad holidays - instead we had a quick few nights in Disneyland Paris and the rest of our time off was spent in the UK and revelling in our new found love of Devon & Cornwall. It was honestly just as wonderful as jetting off.
Because of that - we’d planned to go a little crazy this year, knowing our family was growing - we thought it would be nice to do a long haul adventure with the girls before babies arrival. HOWEVER with careful research it appears a ‘zika’ virus has scuppered plans to the locations we’d had plans to go to.
Something kind of clicked after this, about the added worries of travelling that far during pregnancy and reminding myself that actually - a third baby is only going to add to the adventures long term. Not stop them.
So we’ve been looking at shorter travel and have made our minds up that this is the best option for us this year! Somewhere quiet, a nice villa, a boutique hotel or some quirky staycations! Maybe even a few nights for hubby and I alone.
Whether it’s the UK or further into Europe - we thought it would be really nice to sit and read all your recommendations and have a nosy at your favourite holidays, if you’d be kind enough to share 🥰 I also thought it would be a super useful post for others too looking for a getaway!
Thank you as always #instafam
