This page is dedicated to family friendly travel destinations as well as tips on travelling with kids.
Gone are the days when going on holiday meant late, warm and sultry evenings dancing the night away, nights philosophising about the meaning of life over too many bottles of wine with a loved one or friend, your words becoming a whisper as you hear the birds announcing the arrival of morning, and late morning lie-ins with brunches which become lunches, which become dinners. Those were the days when holidays were one spontaneous activity after another, with no set routines or places to be.
My Bean is now 15 months old and although he is running around and he manages to keep himself entertained for short periods of time, he tends to get bored quickly. At home, this is fine, because we have a variety of toys and activities available for him, but when we going on holiday or on a day trip, it is simply not possible to pack everything he owns into the car. So, for our last trip, I put my creativity to the test and packed only 5 items. These items were affordable and lightweight and they could be used for a variety of fun (and educational) activities.
My beautiful sister is turning 30 and to celebrate this momentous occasion, we have decided to go on a mini holiday together, (yay, our first beach holiday with Bean) and seeing as we are only going for a couple of days, we have decided to fly instead of drive. Flying of course means that we are limited in terms of luggage and so I have decided to set up a list of tips to consider when packing lightly as well as a list of essentials to pack to make travelling with a baby a little easier.
Hi, my name is Alexa and I am a mother. More specifically, I am the mother of a happy, beautiful 4,5 month old boy. And as is the case with most mothers, he is the light of my life. Before I became a mom however, I was a regular 30 (something) year old who was focused on building a career, who lived for travel and a sense of adventure and who loved a good party.
