Exploring Sintra in Lisboa, Portugal, with a baby.

I fully recommend exploring Portugal, there are loads of package holidays to Portugal (mainly in the Algarve and Madeira) and maybe people … Continue reading Exploring Sintra in Lisboa, Portugal, with a baby.

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

I don't plan to enter it into any more competitions. I have a theory that, if I write a new story for every short … Continue reading Story time: The Last Big Adventure.
