When I was pregnant with Renzo I said to Mark that this year we’d go abroad on holiday. Mark and I haven’t been abroad since 2012, I can’t quite believe it’s been that long but in between that time we’ve moved home, done lots of renovations and also had two children so it’s pretty understandable. That being said I really wanted this year to be the year we all went abroad as a family of four however I still don’t think we are going to be able to just yet due to Renzo still being quite small, I’d like for us all to go abroad when each of us can enjoy the holiday in some way and I just think going on a sun holiday may be a little too warm for little man.
I have still been looking for holidays online though as I do get moments where I just want to impulse book something and jet off somewhere nice and I’ve been checking out a website called The Top Villas. This is a really great site that offers a huge number of villas in so many locations including the US, Europe, Mexico, Asia and many more there is so much choice. I love this site because there is a concierge section where you can book to rent a car, attraction tickets and even your grocery shopping so you can make sure the fridge is stocked up before you arrive! When we do decide to go away we are going to go somewhere where we can book our own villa, I think this would be great for us as we can all have our own space and it will kind of be a home away from home so much more comfortable for the boys and having your own pool sounds pretty nice to me too, no more fighting for the sun loungers at 8am in the morning! I’d like to take the boys to Disney World when they are a little older, it’s somewhere I always wanted to go as a child so it will be a little childhood dream coming true for me too.
Travelling with children can be difficult, even when we go on UK trips we always have to think about everything to bring to make our stay the best it can be and making sure the boys have everything is essential. If we were to go abroad this year a few essential items we’d need to bring for the boys would be; steriliser, bottles, sun cream, sun hats, swimming shorts, armbands, sunglasses, the list goes on!
Are you going abroad this year? What is your number one item you’d need to pack for your little ones?
