Daytime San Antonio

The non-party side to San Antonio. A guide packed with activities and days out for this popular Ibiza destination.

“Sunshine is the best medicine” – Unknown

7 Ways To Enjoy Daylight Hours in Ibiza

We love Ibiza for many reasons and visit often. There is so much more to the island than its typical party reputation. Ibiza is approximately a 2 hour 20 minute flight from London airports and out of season, return tickets can cost £40. Taxis are easy to get from the airport, as is the bus system that drops you in most central locations around the island. Ibiza enjoys mild springs and autumns, making it an ideal destination to enjoy a little sunshine nearly all year round. Here you’ll find our top seven spots to enjoy during the day in and around San Antonio.

Fears and Fun

A travel-with-teens special that focuses on getting the big kids outside and overcoming challenges together in Bournemouth, England.

“How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives” – Judy Blume

*A TRAVEL-WITH-TEENS SPECIAL*

Bournemouth, England

Finding things to do with teenagers can be challenging. When children reach that age where they are more withdrawn, experience mood swings and find the thought of hanging out with you suddenly extremely uncool, how do you still enjoy holidays? In my opinion, it’s the most difficult stage, the transition between childhood and adulthood and many relationships are tested. It’s vital to still create time together, even if that means fighting off resistance and struggling to think of activities that you can enjoy with teens. Teenagers are still children and need guidance and support more at this age than any age before. They need adults they can talk to, laugh with and who remind them to be children. So what type of breaks allow them to be children but present challenges for them as young adults too? Continue reading “Fears and Fun”

“Your feet will bring you where your heart is” – Irish Proverb

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Belfast has an ongoing and recent history of trouble but such a beautiful part of the UK also has so much to offer. A visit to Northern Ireland’s capital is a great idea for a short 2-3 day break. Don’t let the politics put you off. The Irish are happy-go-lucky souls who welcome you with open arms and are proud to show off their part of the world. Just an hour flight from London, it’s a super easy getaway idea for both city-lovers and natural-beauty-admirers. Continue reading “Jokes and Giants”

Kisses and Castles

We recommend a stay in idyllic Vianden on this romantic short holiday in Luxembourg.

“To die is nothing, but it is terrible not to live” – Victor Hugo

Vianden, Luxembourg

The next time you are looking for a quiet few days away in Europe, have you considered Luxembourg? As one of the smallest countries in the EU, Luxembourg is a quiet destination, one that promises plenty of down-time and an escape from the fast pace of normal life. For the perfect romantic break, get out of the city to Vianden, a small town in the North East with narrow streets and a hill-top castle. This idyllic destination is just a 50 minute flight from London and a 45 minute drive from Luxembourg City. Continue reading “Kisses and Castles”

“There’s nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere” – Vivienne Westwood

London, England

London is a super special place. Full of charisma and chaos, it’s one of the best cities in the world to explore as a local or a visitor. We never tire of our capital city and consider ourselves very fortunate to live under an hour from this cosmopolitan part of England. One of the things we’ve experienced recently and loved is a helicopter tour above London to get a bird’s eye view of the areas we know so well. Here you can find details about this helicopter tour with VVB Aviation, why we chose it and what else there is to enjoy nearby. Continue reading “London By Air – A Helicopter Tour”

An Eye-Opening Experience

A Kraków city break itinerary that includes a day trip to Auschwitz.

“Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere” – Elie Wiesel

Kraków, Poland

Not all experiences are happy ones. Sometimes, it’s important we travel in order to appreciate the lives we live and learn about who we are. I have always been keen to visit Auschwitz, a part of history that we are all taught as children, but seldom think about as adults. A city break to Kraków is my chosen destination this month. This beautifully preserved medieval city is well-worth a visit, especially with a vital piece of human history just a couple of hours away. Continue reading “An Eye-Opening Experience”
