TalesofaTwinMum – Flying with twins – our first family holiday abroad

You know those families you see sitting on the floor of an airport with their suitcases open and their clothes tumbling out onto the floor? The ones you usually laugh at as you sail through the airport looking forward to your gin and tonic at the other side? That was us at the start of our first family holiday abroad.

DorkyMum – Flying with Family

“Oh no,” said DorkyDad. “What a terrible start to a holiday.” We had just been treated to the sight of Alex Salmond, recently off a flight from London, strutting through Edinburgh airport. For a man in a crumpled suit, he exuded an extraordinary air of arrogance.

As it turned out, DorkyDad was right. Our holiday did not get off to a great start. A security alert at Edinburgh meant that we missed our connection at Heathrow. Despite arriving with 25 minutes to spare, we had already been re-booked onto another flight the next morning.

A matter of choice – A little bit of history

When you step off the tourist trail in Cyprus you realise there are many little hidden gems to be found, one of these is in Derynia, the village where we live. The Derynia Folkloric Museum is a picturesque old house full of traditional Cypriot items including many household and farming tools.

The Diary of a Lagos Mum – Banyan Tree Al Wadi

When Hub and I booked our flights for Dubai, we talked about going away for a day or two. But couldn’t decide on where to go. We thought about Abu Dhabi and other places that would be close-by, but didn’t confirm (or even look into) anything.

Just before New Year, we met with some friends for dinner and one of the couples said that they’d gone to Banyan Tree Al Wadi for two nights and we should look into it. I checked out the website and was sold. THIS is where we were going!

Minibreak Mummy – The Valley, Carnon Downs, Cornwall

The Valley, Carnon Downs, Cornwall

In March we went to stay for a weekend in a ‘Haven‘ self-catering cottage at The Valley, Carnon Downs, Cornwall.

And it was the nicest and most comfortable self-catering cottage I have ever stayed in. It really was a haven!

Here is a list of some of the reasons why I was so impressed:

* very attactive cottage – light and airy during the day, yet cosy and warm on chilly spring evenings
* beautiful setting and in a very handy location for visiting a range of nice places in Cornwall, including Falmouth and Truro

Actually Mummy… – Should Airlines Segregate Families?

Should Airlines Segregate Families?

As the holiday season approaches, I thought it pertinent to raise the issue of air-travel with families – and those individuals who are not family-friendly. Whilst reading the Sunday papers last weekend Mummy had what can only be described as a coffee-snort moment. Apparently someone had written to the Sunday Times travel section complaining about the fact that families are allowed to share the same space as normal grown-ups.

Mari’s World – Key West – Florida!

Travel has to be right up there on the top of my list of Favourite Pastimes. I would never refuse to go and visit a place. Anything Anywhere Anytime as I believe you can never see too much. I will never get to see the whole of the World in my existance (although I’ll give it my best shot given half a chance) so I make do with accepting as much as I possibly can and reminiscing over my travels and experiences when I’m back home in beautiful Ol’ Blighty.

Military Dad – My Favorite Port Visits

When you’re underway on a Navy ship, there is nothing quite like a port visit. It’s a chance to get a little downtime, de-stress, and have a few drinks. You actually get to leave the ship and experience the local culture in all it’s awesomeness. It’s the reason that a lot of people enlist in the military in the first place. “Join the Navy, see the world.” I wanted to share a few of my favorites from over the years.

Three years, one stone and then home – Leaving Las Vegas (and doing something less boring instead?)

My holiday destinations of choice flashed through my mind … Las Vegas, New York, Las Vegas, New York, Las Vegas … and then the realisation hit me, I have to take a 19 month old, never sitting still, toddler with me. A 19 MONTH OLD!! ON HOLIDAY WITH ME!! Now I know what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but I think the line is drawn at letting a young, German shouting, cheeky monkey loose on the roulette table.
