Wandering in Whitby 

We have spent the last two days exploring the picturesque Yorkshire town of Whitby.  Whitby is famous for being a vibrant fishing village and it does not disappoint. Yesterday was bank holiday Monday and typically everywhere was absolutely jammed packed! Parking is a premium on days like this, it’s also quite expensive at £5 for 4 hours.  Eventually we found …

What type of traveller are you? 

I’ve been thinking about our travel habits lately and thought I’d ask the question, what type of traveller are you?  Are you a planner or a last minute traveller? – We are most certainly the latter. In fact we have been known to book and travel on the same day! I am not very patient when it comes to travel. The …

We booked direct with Disney and left the next morning on a very early flight….yep that last minute!  We booked into the Newport Bay Club Hotel, mainly due to the fact that there was a fantastic offer of a free full board meal plan included in the package! …

Margaret River Region…..with kids!

The South West of Western Australia is not just a great place for sampling some of the world’s finest wine (although that is massive bonus!). It is also a fantastic place for children or all ages! We visited the Margaret River region with our four year old in April 2016, it’s such a magnificent part of this beautiful world. I …

Long Haul with kids!

So…which ever way you cut it 22 hours in transit is a killer! Add a child (or children) to the mix and your pretty much asking for at least one major meltdown. We recently flew with Emirates from Heathrow to Perth, Western Australia with our four year old in tow. Aside from a couple of hairy moments, we escaped without …
