If you’ve never travelled alone, read what to expect on a solo trip, what to do if things go wrong and the side effects of taking that first step.
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step” – Naeem Callaway

It doesn’t matter which destination you choose, or whether you spend your time trekking, sunbathing or sight-seeing. If the idea of solo travel has tempted you but you always end up talking yourself out of it, let’s look at the process of travelling all by yourself and give you the confidence to go ahead and embrace your first trip alone. Far from the dangerous or lonely experience you might expect, it’s actually one of the most liberating and awakening things you’ll ever do.

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*
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 When children reach that age where they are more withdrawn, experience mood swings and find the thought of hanging out with you suddenly extremely uncool, how do you still enjoy holidays?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”

We can all benefit from a full recharge now and again and the great news is this doesn’t have to cost the earth or take you too far away from home. Everyone should have a local spot to turn to in times of need for pure relaxation and a complete vacation from everyday life. My biggest time of need for such a break often hits me in late December, when the party season has begun to take its toll on my body and bank account and I’m utterly fed up of all the running around that has sadly become normal for this time of year!
