Buck the Trend and Go North This Summer

Come the summer months almost everyone going on holiday will plan a trip south for sun, sea and sand. While this is a lovely way to spend a fortnight, and there is nothing wrong with reading by the pool, it isn’t the most imaginative way to spend your time.

If you are a traveller by nature, you are doing yourself down by going on the same holidays over and again. You can still go on a pool holiday every now and then, but it’s time to think more creatively and buck the trend. Continue reading “Buck the Trend and Go North This Summer”

3 Awesome Ideas For A Girls Night Out

As a mum, it can be tricky to find any time for yourself. With teething toddlers, tantrumtastic offspring and more play dates than you can shake a stick at, the ability to find those all-important moments to unwind becomes almost non-existent. However, it’s vital that you get that respite away from your little darlings.

Why Hawaii is my Ultimate Holiday Dream

Seeing the world has always been something I have been drawn to and even though I love the UK there is so much more I want to see and experience. I must admit I’ve never been one to consider travelling for a long period of time and I certainly wouldn’t want to hostel it around Europe, I’m just not good at ‘roughing it’! Instead, I am perfectly happy to see the world gradually, taking a different holiday each year and eventually getting to those countries that are on my ultimate dream list to visit, one of my top ones being Hawaii.

7 Ways To Travel More Like a Local

Let’s be honest… Nobody wants to be a stereotypical tourist. You know the kind I mean. The kind that wanders round bumping into small children and animals blinkered by their sprawling maps. The kind that seems to find anything from a town hall to a public toilet worthy of a photo. The kind that you end up unintentionally photobombing as you elbow past them on your way to work. The kind whose bookshelves are littered with seldom-used rough guides and even more seldom used phrasebooks. Yeah. Those guys. Ugh! While nobody wants to be perceived as a clueless outsider fecklessly trying to replicate local life without bothering to absorb the cultural nuances that comprise it, it can also really compromise your holiday.

Those who try will panic about their babies and those who don’t will lust after the idea of adult time alone; it’s a curse amongst the blessing that is your new child.
