Why We Are Taking Our Child Out Of School To Go On Holiday

Ok, so as you know by now we are off to Florida in March.

No, they may not be good enough for the school or Government to accept but for us, we need to do this.

You see, what they may not class as exceptional circumstances Continue reading “Why We Are Taking Our Child Out Of School To Go On Holiday”

Visiting Lake Kournas, Crete

We have recently got back from a gorgeous family holiday in Crete and I am just sitting here dreaming of going back to the sea and the sun… bliss! We booked a fantastic family-friendly resort and spent most of our time in our ‘resort bubble’, just enjoying the pools, beach and evening meals and entertainment. It’s not often that we go on a holiday and don’t venture out much but with having two young children and no hire car, we decided that it was easier to stay put this time around. However, the hotel did offer a land train ride to the local tourist attraction, Lake Kournas which was a perfect way for us to travel there– Jake was incredibly excited– and it meant we could see a bit of what the local area had to offer on the short journey.

What Can I Expect When Flying with a Baby?

This is probably the most common question I googled prior to our family holiday this year; ‘What can I expect when flying with a baby?’ I had no idea. I didn’t know if it would be a hassle manoeuvring my way through the airport, I didn’t know if the baby would sleep or scream, I didn’t know how the other passengers would react and so on.  Continue reading “What Can I Expect When Flying with a Baby?”
