A Scottish Adventure

Like many people I have a bucket list. Although, I have to be honest and say that I’m not keen on calling it a bucket list, but rather just a list of things I’d like to do in life. That way if I don’t manage to do them all, that’s ok! I don’t have a time limit on when I plan to do these things, and not even 100% sure that I’ll ever get around to doing them all, but it’s nice to have goals! I have quite a varied range of things on my list. From writing a book… [Read More]

Seeking some winter sun

For the majority of us Brits summer means holidays, but have you ever thought about going on holiday in the winter? This year, my husband and I have been very lucky to have enjoyed two holidays. They were both very different holidays! The first was a trip to Disneyland Paris, which was very magical indeed, and the second was an all inclusive week in Minorca. Both were very enjoyable holidays. However, now that summer is almost over and winter is fast approaching, I’m feeling the need for another holiday! Going on holiday in winter may seem strange to some, but… [Read More]

Your Holiday Checklist

Going on holiday is an exciting time. It’s a time to relax, explore new places and make lasting memories. However, the run up to going on holiday can be stressful. The research and planning, making sure you’ve packed everything, booked everything and haven’t forgotten to do anything can all take its toll. As I’ve just returned from a weeks holiday in Menorca, I thought I’d put together a check list of holiday essentials. Luggage allowance – This is always a big thing for me. Before going anywhere I always check to see how much luggage allowance is each passenger is… [Read More]

Getting the best deal on your next holiday

As a family, we’ve been very lucky to have two holidays abroad this year. The first was back in June when we went to Disneyland Paris, and the second was earlier month when we went to Menorca. Now, I’d like to point out that this isn’t a regular occurrence for us. We usually have just the one holiday, so I think it’s fair to say it’s been a truly good year in terms of holidays for us. Sadly the beginning of the year wasn’t great. My husband had a number of health scares, and ended up in and out of… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report – Our Last Day

To read about day five, click here. All week, we have been trying to go on the boat ride behind the ‘It’s a small world ride’, but every time we’ve gone over it’s been closed. Today, our last day, we got lucky! The boat ride is called Le Pays Des Contes de Fees, and it’s alongside the Casey Jnr Train Ride. One our visit last year, we had no idea that these rides exist as they’re kind of hidden away, but when I saw them on the map this year, I knew I wanted us to go on them! The… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 5

You can read all about day five here. After breakfast, we headed over to the Walt Disney Studios and opened up the Lineberty app around 9.40am to try and book a meet with Captain America and Buzz Lightyear. I opened the app on both my phone and my husbands. I managed to book a slot for Buzz Lightyear in twenty minutes time, and Captain America around 3pm. We headed straight over to where the Buzz Lightyear meet was in Toon Plaza. There’s been some confusion over the way in which the bookable characters can be booked. It appears that a lot… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 4

To read all about day three, please click here. After the excitement of yesterdays Marvel Superhero Meal, my husband and I decided that today should be a bit more relaxed. After a buffet breakfast in the Disneyland Hotel, we headed into the park with no plans, but to enjoy the day. As we walked up Main Street, we saw that there was a very short queue to meet Donald Duck so we decided to join. This was during Early Magic Hours (EMH). Donald Duck was great, and my husband got a pretty cool selfie with him! Donal Duck signed the… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 3

To read all about Day 2, click here. Last night I went to the concierge desk in the Disneyland Hotel where we’re staying and asked about booking the Marvel meal. This is a meal in the Manhattan Restaurant inside the Newport Bay Hotel, in which you get to meet Captain America, Thor and Black Widow. Unfortunately, I was told that it was fully booked for the rest of our stay. I was disappointed, but we’d already met Captain America which was a bonus so I didn’t think of anymore of it. That was until the morning of day 3. I… [Read More]
