This year I’ve asked H where he would like to go on holiday. We have done this in a limited way before and we ended up in Italy visiting Pompeii the other year. So when asked this time, H said he wanted to go to Giant’s Causeway, so I’ve started looking at that and making some plans. I know that won’t be the only adventure we’ll want to go on this year and I’m keen to write more about travel now I have my Toothbrush Packed blog. In fact, since I started my own travel blog I’ve found I’ve spent more time reading about places to visit and I usually turn to other travel blogs for ideas and inspiration.
With a limited budget this year I’m not sure we will be able to venture anywhere too exotic, so I have been looking on places a bit closer to home. Wherever we go, it will need to be a place that H would like to visit: you know how it is when you’re a parent, if your child is happy, you are happy. For while now H has been asking to go back to Legoland, Windsor. We went once when he was about 3, but he couldn’t go on quite a few of the rides then because of height restrictions. Last year we managed a trip to the Legoland in Florida which was fabulous, but I think that has just made H want to go back to Legoland, Windsor even more. I’ve been reading a friend’s new travel blog: The Reluctant Traveller, and it has been providing more encouragement for the idea as . The post about Legoland is full of handy tips like where to stay when you’re on a budget and how best to make the most of your day there.
H is already talking about a return trip to the Isles of Scilly for 2018, so I’ll need to factor that into our plans as well as a visit to Scotland to see my sister and her family. She has fairly recently moved back to Scotland from Australia and H wants to explore the area where his cousins live.
