I love seeing new places, going on holiday and travelling with my family. Travel and kids may not always seem like the best idea but in the last few years I have learnt so much from it and now it feels so natural and each time we go I am eager to get away again on the next adventure. Whether it is a holiday in the UK or abroad we have fun whatever we get up to and it is always the highlight of my year.
In this category I cover topics to help you out, like if you are flying with a baby, having to keep a toddler entertained on a flight or even if you need help getting through those holiday blues. I also document how we have got on, what places we have loved and where we have visited in the past.
Travel with kids doesn’t have to be hard and it can be so much fun!

How and Why You Can Offset Your Flights
We are living in a far more eco-conscious world with many of us wanting to do the best we can for the future of our planet and all those that live on it. There are a wide range of steps we can take to make positive changes each day but when it comes to travel this is far more tricky and most will significantly increase your carbon footprint. You’ll probably be pleased to hear that car, coach and train travel are all much better for the environment so you do have those options to weigh up when it comes to making your holiday plans but I am sure you will already be very aware that both cruise liner and plane travel will have a much larger negative impact.
Now, I am not about to ever dictate to anybody how they should be travelling, it isn’t my place (or anybody’s for that matter) but what I can do is share some knowledge and my experience of offsetting our flight this year.Continue reading “How and Why You Can Offset Your Flights”

On every holiday we have had since starting on our lower waste journey (with cloth nappies), we have taken our favourite eco-friendly items with us and so I thought I would share with you how much that has accumulated to over the years and how we make it work.Continue reading “Eco-Friendly Items You Can Take On Holiday”
