Ten Tips When Travelling With Kids

Travelling with kids can be quite difficult, especially if they are still little and don't like to sit still. I was lucky with Tilly, she has always travelled, it might have only been in this country until she was 4 years old, but she does like travelling and exploring new places. She is scared a little bit of flying but once she realises that she isn't going to fall out of the plane, when it banks, then she is fine. I have always got her to carry her own little back pack when ever we go anywhere, even if its just for the day.

So what do I always make sure that I have when I travel with Tilly?

Five Places I Want To Visit With Tilly

Everyone has their favourite places to visit, I suppose its a bit like a travel bucket list. I will probably never get to visit these places but it is so good to have hopes and aspirations to look forward to.  So here are the five places that I want to take Tilly to.


She has actually asked if she can go to Turkey, it has been on her wish list for about a year now. I know a lot of people say that it is a dangerous place to visit at the moment, but its a load of rubbish really. Turkey is hot and beautiful, the majority of the people are fabulous and you can get some great bargains if you go shopping out there. I go to Antalya with friends as an adults only holiday, I haven't been to any other parts of the country so going there would also be nice.

Would You Take A Holiday In Term Time?

Booking a holiday in the school break! MEH!! have you seen how much the price increases? This is my biggest bug bear when I book a holiday, It is always so expensive, sometimes twice the price. That is what lead us to book a holiday that we designed our self last summer and go Interrailing. It cost us as much as a week in an all inclusive destination for a week, but we were gone for almost 4 weeks.

Things For Men To Do In Vienna

As I am a Woman/Mum, I often write about things to do with kids when we visit different destinations, as a single mum is it easy to forget the men. So here is a guide of a few things for men to do in the beautiful city of Vienna. With men are taking more and more pride in their appearance, it is important for them to find good quality grooming and menswear so for something to wear, Strictly Herrmann in the second district only stocks menswear. This cool concept store on Taborstrasse carries selected labels, alongside cool accessories including eyewear and bags, as well as books, fragrances, skincare products, gin and the latest must-have gadgets. You could get want you wanted all under one roof. Leave the wife and kids and go off to do a spot of shopping yourself.

At La Moustache on Kirchengasse, here you will find elegant sporty fashion from Italy and France. Stylish shirts, trousers, jackets, shoes, ties and even tuxedos line the racks and shelves. ‘Classic, but never boring’ is the philosophy here. 

Franz und Gloria, a barbershop in the seventh district, also includes a unisex hairdressing salon. Men and women’s stylists use sustainable care products from Vienna-based company Less is More, whose creations only contain certified organic herbal ingredients. Male patrons can look forward to an expert shave or professional beard styling service – there are no appointments here, but espresso and whiskey are de rigueur.

Brothers’ Barbershop on Neubaugasse, also in the seventh district, is just for men. The cosy vintage interiors provide a fitting setting for the fine art of male grooming – with everything from a simple trim and shave, to face massages on offer. The salon has also turned into something of a hang out where people come for a chat about the issues of the day over coffee and whiskey, as well as to ensure they look their best.

So gentlemen, next time the Mrs suggests a trip to vienna, keep this blog post in mind and have your own bit of retail therapy because there is nothing better than coming home from a break away and feeling so much better than when you arrived there.

10 Reasons To Stay At The Alba Queen, Antalya

Recently we returned form a 2 week all Inclusive holiday to the Alba Queen Hotel in Side, Near Antalya in Turkey. We had an amazing time and we were slightly shocked to see someone wrote a bad review on TripAdvisor, even though they were there the same time as us. These people were actually bragging that they had been given white bands to get into the neighbouring hotel, because they were friends with guest relations so as they were hardly at the Queen, I am at a loss to see how she could find so much wrong with the hotel. I know everyone has a different view to holidays but here are the ten reasons why we loved the Alba Queen

Sightseeing In Copenhagen

We were staying in Orestad, just outside of Copenhagen and it was a fab place to stay as it was one stop away from Copenhagen and two stops from the airport. We were there for 2 nights and bought a 72 hour bus ticket on the Stromma Bus company, this included bus hop on hop off rides on both green busses of Open top Tours and the red City sightseeing busses as well as unlimited boat tours in the canals and the land train. It as DKK300 and was worth every single Krona of my money. By this time of my holiday I was really skint and struggling for money, so my thought was that if we did this then I would get out of having to pay to get into other attractions that would cost more in the long run.
