Choosing Delft over Amsterdam – a good call?

WHEN we booked our holiday to Eurocamp Duinrell in Holland, we planned to spend at least a day in Amsterdam. The parc is only 45km away from the city, and even though me and Stew have been there before we thought we’d take the opportunity to tick it off our little travel buddies’ capital challenge Read More

Dreaming of a family holiday to Skopelos, Greece

THERE’S nothing quite like a holiday that makes you feel far removed from the rest of the world – and the island of Skopelos looks like a Greek paradise where you could truly switch off. I fell in love with the idea of Greece while studying Captain Corelli’s Mandolin for A Level English Literature, with Read More

Eurocamp adventures: Family photos in a vineyard

FROM the minute the plane touched down at Nice Airport I became obsessed with the light in the Provence Alps Cote D’Azur region. The sun cast the most beautiful glow, especially during the early morning and late afternoon, so landing at 5pm was perfect timing. I think I drove Stew a bit mad as he tried Read More

Eurocamp adventures part 2: Breaking all the pool rules

WE might not seem like the most rebellious family, but in just one morning on holiday we managed to break pretty much every swimming pool rule – and there were A LOT of rules. After a long journey to France we expected Santi and Ezra to have a lie in, giving us a chance to Read More

Eurocamp adventures part 1: Flying to Nice with a baby and toddler

A well-dressed mother who has clearly been watching YouTube tutorials on halo braids, a chilled out father wearing chinos and a shirt, and two super cute children – one a toddler and the other a baby around three months old. As they wait for their flight to Nice, Read More

A family visit to Cardiff Bay Beach

THIS week we’re having a staycation in Cardiff. It might only be an hour away from home, but it’s nice to have a change of scene and more time to do things in the capital that we wouldn’t normally get the chance to. The first thing on the list was Cardiff Bay Beach to play Read More

A day at Folly Farm and our first family vlog

HAVING a toddler can be a bit tricky during the school holidays – playgroups tend to close for six weeks, soft play becomes a bit of a danger zone with older children running around, and attractions that are usually quiet are overrun with families trying to keep little ones entertained. So knowing that our options might Read More

Five reasons to visit Amsterdam with children

ONE of my travelling rules is never to visit the same place twice to make sure we see as many cities and countries as possible. Our European capital city challenge is one way of doing this, and we’ve already been to a fair few that might not have been on my list. A few years ago, Amsterdam Read More

P&O Baltic cruise: Taking a toddler to St Petersburg, Russia

I think Russia was the whole reason Stew let me book this cruise – he hadn’t really seemed keen on the idea of a cruise before, but Russia seemed to do the trick … Must be the Russian heritage he goes on about! St Petersburg was the port he was most looking forward to, and the Read More

P&O Baltic Cruise: Tallinn, Estonia

TALLINN was the stop I was most looking forward to on our cruise. I was expecting it to be a fairytale-pretty little city with quirky streets and squares to wander around. It turned out to be exactly that … But so much colder than I anticipated! The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Read More
