Like a lot of people over the last month, Dave and I have been spending hours in the evening scrolling through online travel companies to seek out good deals on summer holidays. This is in a bid to inject some excitement into our year (because it’s SO nice having something to look forward to, isn’t it?).
We promised the twins a beach holiday this year because they have been doing great with their swimming lessons every week, and have both improved in confidence and ability. Going to the swimming pool at the weekend is something they absolutely love to do and so we knew that they would love to go abroad this year and have plenty of fun swimming and splashing about in the glorious sunshine.
We have thus just booked a week away to Gran Canaria at Easter. Which is only 8 weeks away and not long to wait at all (runs and puts gym gear on and does several crunches!). But seriously, I can’t wait to chill, drink cocktails, have fun by the pool, get a tan and spend some time with my besties.
We have got some other ideas regarding travel for later in 2018 too. We also plan to have a family UK mini-break during the summer holidays; possibly visiting the seaside for a few days. Perhaps a cottage over a long weekend in August when the twins are off school, and hopefully somewhere that we haven’t explored yet.
Also, as I will be 40 at the end of the year (OMG!) so the plan is to have a kid-free city break. I really fancy Barcelona or Paris (Dave and I have never been to either). I’m so excited at the thought of it already – plenty of food, drink, relaxing, sightseeing and shopping…because I will HAVE to come back with a birthday present purchase. Perhaps Chanel or Gucci. Them’s the rules.
So here is my dream wardrobe for travelling towards the sunshine for this year:
