Flying with a three year old and a baby

[ad-gifted: I mention Jet2 in this post because we’ve paid to fly with them for the last 8 years now. Our Easter flights were gifted to us but I wouldn’t be writing this if we hadn’t genuinely enjoyed our experiences flying with them. The other items I mention below were also gifted to us but have been a total dream – and they’re cute! I’ve also included an affiliate link.]

We’ve continued to travel since having kids, our first holiday as parents was when our daughter was just 11 weeks old and we travelled at a similar time with our little boy too. We’ve flown, we’ve driven around the UK and even driven to a ski holiday, up the mountains in France. So we’re not afraid to travel with our kids but our Easter trip will be the first time flying with a three year old and a baby: an 11 month old that is. Last time we flew, our baby boy was 5 months old, still breastfeeding and way less fidgety, so we’ll be planning ahead…

BUT, I don’t want to compromise on travel, as I know it truly makes us happy and I feel the cultural experiences are so beneficial for the kids at this age. I’ve therefore vowed that 2019 will be the year of travel for us and here’s where I want to go!…

Family Holiday Destinations in Italy: Cefalù, Sicily

If you follow my blog or my instagram, you’ll know two main things: 1. I am a major advocate for family travel (no matter how old your children are!) and 2. Italy has a special place in my heart. Everything about Italy…the landscapes, the food, the people…it is a country that feels like a second home to me.

Over the years, we’ve spent many-a family holiday in Tuscany, a place we’ve come to know well, but we’ve also enjoyed exploring the rest of Italy and there are a lot of places on my hit-list! I’ve been researching family holiday destinations in Italy and came across somewhere that looks to make the perfect family seaside getaway: Cefalù, Sicily. So I thought I might start a new series here on the blog about family holiday destinations in Italy. What do you think? Here’s the first instalment…
