Back to Cala Bona

Having visited twice last year and loved it, we went out again at the end of the summer holidays for a week in the sun. It didn’t disappoint.

We love visiting Cala Bona in Majorca. Last year we end up visiting twice. First around Easter and then again at the end of the summer holidays. When booking our summer holiday abroad (all wonderfully handled by my wife) we had no hesitation in booking again for the same resort.

Majorca is a lovely island and provides all kinds of holidays. For us, with two children it provides all we need. The kids love the pool(s) and then can spend all day playing around, diving in and going up and down the slides. For us it provides a nice relaxing place to sunbathe and is a good safe space for both us and the children.

A short break near Grassington

Having been before and enjoyed the area so much we headed back to the area around Grassington in Yorkshire for a few days, staying in a lovely AirBnB house, while the kids stayed in the caravan with grandparents.

With the kids staying on the caravan site with grandparents, I managed to find us a lovely AirBnB place to stay within walking distance. It was delightful and pretty much like a 5-star hotel, with a full English breakfast each morning! We had our own living room with TV etc. bedroom and bathroom, all within the owners house. I would highly recommend Low Field farm if you are looking for something – Lydia, our host was lovely.

Easter Holiday 2018 Fun

With it being the Easter holidays we had some lovely time to spend with the kids. We managed to fit in lots with some walks, golf driving range, time at the park and some great bide rides.

Over the Easter period I attempted to take some video footage and turn it into some sort of shorter holiday clip. My (poor) effort is below.

Swimming and Porthmadog

Today we woke early (well the boys did!) as we still seem to be getting used to the loss of an hour with the change in the clocks. After some breakfast I headed out for a lovely morning walk on the beach with the boys. They love running around in the sand and spending time in the fresh air.

End of the Summer in Majorca

The end of a fabulous summer where we went on some great days out, wonderful short breaks and we finished it off with 5 days on the beautiful island of Majorca.

Having already been for a week in the Easter holidays where we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves we decided on a bit of a last minute short break back to the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca, in the small port resort of Cala Bona.

Luxurious Langdale Stay at the Brilliant Brimstone

Amazing Anglesey in Wales

I have just returned from a few days a way in a lovely part of the UK that I have rarely spent time in before which Anglesey in north west wales. We (the family) spent a few days with my parents, them in their caravan and us (me and my wife) in a nearby hotel. The kids – well they of course wanted to stay in the caravan with grand parents.
