As a thank you for reading our family travel blog, I have a lovely treat to share with you… An exclusive 35% discount for a stay at Barmouth Bay Holiday Park in Wales. I know, pretty fab eh!

Antigua is located in the Eastern side of the Leeward Islands. The unique selling point of the island is that it has 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. Although I visited many beaches during my frequent stops in Antigua whilst working on the cruise ships and more recently during our family holiday, I cannot (unfortunately) vouch for all 365!
Thoughts of a Caribbean holiday conjure up images of swaying palm trees, powder white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and steel drum music. Whilst these images are perfectly accurate and indeed the main draw of the region, each of the…
If you have visited Tortola whilst on a cruise do not make the same mistake that I did, in thinking that you have ‘done’ the British Virgin Islands… I had visited Tortola every fortnight for three cruise seasons when working onboard cruise ships however, during a familiarisation trip with the BVI tourist board, I quickly realised that I had barely scratched the surface of what the region has to offer during my time at sea….
Copenhagen is a fabulous city break destination for families. The city is more compact than other major European city break destinations such as Paris, it is also very child friendly with many family attractions.
