Where to go on holiday with a toddler

I’ve really put the hours in for this year’s family holiday. I’ve been through and am still going checking the local suspects of travel web sites in search for just the right amount of excitement and relaxation for our 2 + 1 family. I’ve found lots of beautiful hotels and apartments but my jaw has dropped to see the prices being quoted for family style package holidays.

Although I’m in Cardiff and they’re in London, we might as well be abroad in terms of how often we see each other. It’s a real shame because I had always wanted my daughter to have a great relationship with both mine and my husband’s families. However, in this busy world, everyone is always too busy, even to say the odd hello every now and again. I do miss my family but it’s […]
