Sri Lanka is a huge country to explore, especially if you have young kids in tow. If you are planning a trip you need to be strategic in planning where you want to go in order to combine variety with breaking up long car journeys. Galle is the fort city and a Unesco World Heritage Site on the south west coast and a definite place to stop in my book.
I have featured Mallorca a lot on my blog because we go there every year for two months with Ross’s work. At the end of his stint we take a week out to have a holiday together as a family. There are some gorgeous Airbnbs in Mallorca and I personally find it more relaxing to be in accommodation where we can do our own thing. This time we stayed in a
Golden Chocolate Eggs, Lemon and White Chocolate Cake Pops and Rhubarb and Custard Candy Floss…did you know that 14th to 20th August is Afternoon Tea Week? Nope, neither did I but what a perfect excuse to indulge in one of the coolest afternoon teas in London – the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea at the gorgeous One Aldwych Hotel. I think you either love or hate afternoon tea
I’ve always been proud of my Chinese heritage and spent most of my years growing up around the delicious street food of Singapore. Now I have my son, who is a quarter chinese, I’m keen to keep our heritage alive and show him all the cool things Chinese culture has to offer. Eating is a big part of asian living and so when Royal China invited us to go and eat some
Any hotel that includes the word ‘nap’ in its name sounds perfect to me and on this promise alone, Casa La Siesta can deliver. There is of course more. The hotel’s family weeks are, I believe, what every parent dreams of having in a good holiday. Rural luxury, good food, round the clock childcare, peace with a little town just 10 minutes away if you fancy a spontaneous nightcap…because you can.Casa La
In May we had a mini break to Valencia, mainly to visit grandparents but also to continue our slow discovery of what the city of Valencia has to offer. I used to do the PR for the Valencia tourist board and wrote countless press releases on The City of Arts and Sciences…I always thought it looked amazing but on this trip I finally got to see it in the flesh
I’m sure I will add more beaches to this post but for now here are a couple of beautiful family beaches we’ve been hanging out on in North East Mallorca. I would recommend getting to both early at around 9am because this part of the island attracts a lot of crowds by midday. The beaches are much nicer at this time, it’s less hot for little ones and parking is much easier.
If you are planning a trip to London with the family but have no idea where to start with accommodation…then read on. Last week I got to have a little peek inside Europa House – a collection of one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments in the pretty canal area of Little Venice. The location is ten minutes from Paddington Station and walking distance to various undergrounds all just a few
If you’re ever in Sydney and looking for a quirky design hotel then I’d recommend staying at The Old Clare. It’s centrally located in Chippendale in the newly redeveloped Kensington Street precinct where there are cool boutiques, art galleries and places to eat including Spice Alley. Whilst The Old Clare is perfectly suitable for accommodating families (large loft style rooms and extra beds on request) Ross and I used it as
If you’re in Sydney with small children I recommend this day out. It’s enjoyable for both parents and kids which, in my opinion, makes the ideal type of family outing. Once you have exhausted all the tourist attractions and are looking for more entertainment I suggest taking the children to Nubo followed by lunch nearby at The Grounds. Hire a car and drive to Alexandria where you’ll find Nubo – a
