Oops a daisy

I’ve done it again! I’ve taken a hiatus. This really does not make me look too good does it! So over the past half a month I have an excuse… I went to Edinburgh for the weekend. Which has spun me out of creativity and motivation, going away just makes you feel so chilled out…

The Appropriate Toddler Sleep Brigade.

Should I be worried about my daughter falling asleep in a Tesco shopping trolley? This has been the main question on my mind today as walked past the third tutting elderly lady. My daughter was leaning forward, drooling over the trolley handle (is that what the thing you hold on to when pushing your trolley…

Quirky places to visit in France.

France is one of my most favourite places on the planet! There is no place like it! There are so many different areas to explore, with so many regions that are so unalike you wouldn’t even know it was the same country. I know a lot of French people very rarely actually leave the country…

Oh hi there!

So, again for the millionth plan Iv’e made with this blog, slowly its turning into something I feel like I want it to be. I have (if you haven’t noticed) had a small hiatus again, mainly because my anxiety is awful at the moment and we went on holiday to Crete (which would have been…

Exploring Sintra in Lisboa, Portugal, with a baby.

When we weren’t at our base of Ericeira, we were traveling around the area of Lisboa in Portugal. Lisbon being the main attraction, or at least the attraction that most people think of. I fully recommend exploring Portugal, there are loads of package holidays to Portugal (mainly in the Algarve and Madeira) and maybe people…

A week in Ericeira, Portugal, camping with a baby.

Our destination all along had been Ericeira, surf capital of Europe. It is an incredibly surf orientated place, which before going I was not aware of. This was quite intriguing for us ladies as there were a lot of surfers, nice looking surfers. Ericeira is not what I expected from Portugal, it was far more…

Why you should go on a driving holiday.

This week I will be discussing the final drive to Ericeira (before we started heading back), and reasons why you should do a driving holiday, gulp, with children. I often get asked: why do you drive for your holiday? What are the benefits? Are you mad? Among many other things. I mean why would you…

Traveling through central Spain and Portugal with a baby.

It was an early start. I don’t mind early starts when camping, to be honest, as it get too hot to stay in the tent after a while; although the day didn’t appear as hot as it had been. We only stayed on the campsite at Burgos one night, it was a very nice night,…

Traveling through Spain with a baby.

We set off very early Sunday morning, I was still trying very hard to drink my coffee. It was imperative we set off early in the morning; the traffic around the Bordeaux ring road is always busy at a weekend as people like to travel either north or south for the weekend (or for the…

Traveling through Southern France with a Baby.

After the rush down to Abbeville, we had a really early night. Our goal was to reach our friends who live in Jussas; a small village situated between Bordeaux and Royan. We passed a lot of places I won’t mention in detail, but if you get a chance to visit them I would suggest: La…
