Although the main purpose of our trip to Norway was to watch football, we still left plenty of time to take in the sights. First up on the list was the Holmenkollen Ski Jump.
I have always wanted to visit the iconic Yankees Stadium in the Bronx, New York. After looking at the fixtures we found that the New York Yankees were playing at home during our trip – result!.
Even better…tickets were on offer for Mastercard users and as my Revolut pre-paid credit card happens to be a MasterCard, I was onto a winner..
At $21, for three tickets, who could refuse!
Why You Should Travel With Kids
One of the questions I get asked all the time is, why do you bring your daughter on so many trips and visit so many countries? “She won’t remember any of it!”. “It’s too dangerous!”. “You can’t take her out of school again!”.
This blog post will explain the reasons why we enjoy travelling with our daughter and how we believe she benefits from it!
We arrived in Brooklyn around lunch time after our 7 hr flight from Dublin. We didn’t want to waste a day, and were trying to stay up as long as possible to avoid jet lag. Taking a recommendation from Bernie & Jess Watt, we headed for a much needed sugar hit at the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain.
When planning for our trip to New York, taking in a Ice Hockey game was on our wish list. NY Rangers at Madison Square Garden was my first choice, but then I seen the price, and quickly changed my mind.
While travelling around Thailand in December 2015 we decided to take a ferry to the Phi Phi Islands. Continue reading “Koh Phi Phi – Thailand”
Booking somewhere for family pets to stay is almost as important as booking accommodation for the humans when planning a holiday! Sometimes it can cost just as much also…
This blog post explains what our family pet, Geoffrey gets up to when we are off on our travels!
When planning our trip to Thailand, and after hearing so much about animal exploitation and cruelty there, we wanted to make sure we paid a visit to a proper animal sanctuary. A friend recommended the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT). We decided to give it a go….
WFFT is a charitable organisation fully dependant on donations and income from their volunteer programme and tours.
The sanctuary offer a full day, or half day tour. We opted for the full day tour, which included hotel transfers, an elephant walk and shower, and a buffet lunch. We paid 2,100 baht in 2016.
Christmas Day Away
People think we are mad taking a young child away on holiday over the Christmas period. What about visiting family on Christmas day, Santa, Christmas dinner. Eastenders Christmas day special, they ask?
The aim of this blog post, is to show anyone considering having Christmas away from home, that it isn’t the end of the world for family back home. Santa can still pay a visit, everywhere we’ve been served food, and there’s always BBC iPlayer to catch up on ‘Who done it?’ .
While spending Christmas 2017 in Quarteira Portugal we took a day away from the beach to visit Loulé . I read about Loulé while researching things to do in Portugal, it came highly recommended therefore, we decided to give it a go!
