The summer holidays are rapidly approaching, and with the awful weather we’re having I think everyone is super keen to swap grey skies and rainy days for a bit of sunshine. We tend to be super organised when it comes to holidays as it generally means we can get some…

24 hours in Barcelona with kids

Earlier this year we went on a cruise from Barcelona. We’d booked our flights and cruise separately. Whenever we do this we always like to fly out the day before, just in case we encounter any issues. It’s also nice to explore whichever city we’re departing from. We had a…

Our summer holiday in Benahavis

Our summer holiday {Benahavis 2017}

We first visited Benahavis in 2013, when the twins were just six months old. Prior to that we’d mostly been on long haul holidays, with the odd trip to Spain/Portugal every so often. To be honest, we weren’t massive fans on these places. Then we found Benahavis… Benahavis is in…

Birthday selfies {My Captured Moment}

Yesterday we returned home from an amazing two week holiday in our favourite Spanish village, Benahavis. Whilst we were there it was my birthday. We had a lovely day on our favourite beach, which is quite small and isn’t quite as touristy as many of the others in the area.…

A trip to Portugal

Last week we went to Vilamoura, which is in Portugal. We went a couple of years ago for my Dad’s 70th birthday and had a great time, so when decided with my parents where they wanted to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary, Vilamoura seemed like the perfect choice. We set…
