A True Holiday – Summer Family Breaks at Potters Resort

A couple of month’s ago I was invited to come and try out a stay at Potters Resort in Norfolk. Sadly, I was unable to take up the opportunity – but I was really thrilled when the amazing Stacy from Strollering the Globe was able to enjoy a weekend away with her family instead. Here’s what she thought of her stay… I learned an important lesson last weekend. There are different types of “holidays”...

I’m thinking about cruising (& not the 80’s-teen-drive version) | Travel Tuesday

I’ve never wanted to try a cruise. Not ever. When the children were very small, friends of ours swore it was the best, most stress-free holiday with a baby and toddler they could think of, and they repeated it as their main holiday every year. I was never convinced. Effectively trapped in one big floating hotel, with no way of getting away for a little peace? No Thanks. But… recently I’ve had a bit of a change of...

No-Fly City Break – Bordeaux, anyone?

So why a No-Fly City Break I’m married to a non-flyer. It’s not always been the case – he dragged me on to my first plane for our honeymoon in Kenya, but over the years for whatever reason a deep instinctual fear of flying has set in. And he’s not alone – apparently 30% of us suffer from aviophobia, in varying degrees from faintly worried to unspeakably terrified. Whilst Mr LittleStuff doesn’t say...

Top Tips on Driving Abroad

Just 18mths ago we had the family road trip of a lifetime – a monster 4,000 mile road trip in a motorhome, driving from home in Dorset right across France and around as much of Italy as we could possibly manage to cover. We were no strangers to driving abroad, though, having opted for driving holidays as the best option for many years. To be fair, when I say ‘we’ I’m being a bit loose with the term. I tend to...

Holidaying when pregnant – did you/would you?

Holidaying when pregnant – did you/would you?

When Boy was a not-very-small almost-8mth bump inside me, I finally started my maternity leave and we promptly took off on holiday. We already had a 3 yr old, funds were tight and the British summer was actually glorious (no, really, it was…) so we decided that holidaying when pregnant definitely meant the camping thing. I’ll admit I did some fast-talking to convince Mr LittleStuff that I could TOTALLY handle camping with...
