Earlier in the week I wrote an article about Tokyo on my blog and my initial reaction to my best friend’s AMAZING holiday to Japan with her boyfriend. She got back on Sunday so on Monday morning I got to hear all about it. Jealous was NOT the word! But then jealously quickly turned onto realisation. A […]
Many of you know that I was born in Northern California, and spent my first 25 years in the Golden State. It’s a wonderful place and we visit each year. It’s about a 9-hour flight from the UK, and there’s so much to do – from trendy Silicon Valley/San Francisco, to long sandy beaches to […]
Yosemite is one of those iconic National Parks that everyone wants to visit at some point in their life. You probably recognise Half Dome’s image (above). The massive granite rock formation looks like someone took a knife (well, a glacier) and sliced it in half. But if you could stretch your neck around and […]
I didn’t know about the family days held at Ascot racecourse until I visited recently and we had so much fun I wanted to pass on the tips we picked up on the day to make it a memorable and special family day out. Ascot Racecourse have five family days throughout the year and they […]
Each year, St Patrick’s Day reminds the world of the Emerald Isle’s allure … forty shades of green, enchanted landscapes, Guinness, and even wee leprechauns. For Corey Taratuta, every day belongs to Ireland on his blog and podcast www.IrishFireside.com, and this week he launches a free ebook celebrating his beloved Ireland. “Remarkable Places in Ireland: Part One” […]

And by “fix”, I don’t mean set but sort out. How much do you spend on holiday? Ask many parents and they’ll reflexively say, “Too much”, but the issue of high season holiday prices for families is on the government agenda now after a couple of e-petitions have garnered huge support. Yesterday MPs debated a […]

Gretta Schifano writes at Mums Do Travel. She recently took her family to Milsons Kesgrave Hall and shares with us their fantastic time. Our first glimpse of Kesgrave Hall is through a pretty scattering of trees twinkling with fairy lights at dusk.

It’s that time again – the ski slopes of Europe and beyond are well and truly covered with snow, and are ready and waiting for you to get your skis on. So whether you cannot wait to get back on the piste, or if 2014 is the first time you will ski together as a […]
Bored of the same old family holidays? Make 2014 the year you try something new and exciting, says William Gray, editor of 101familyholidays.co.uk. Over to William: Don’t get me wrong – we love a beach holiday as much as any family. Just occasionally, though, it’s good to venture beyond the pool and kids’ club and […]
There comes a point in every young girl’s life when she’s over the whole princess thing. At least, that’s what happened in our family. My daughter no longer wants her heroines served up with a dollop of glitter and a saccharine disposition. That’s one of the reasons we were excited and intrigued by Unicorn Theatre’s […]
