Venice City Break

After a very early start on Friday morning and a quick flight of only 2.5 hours we arrived into Marco Polo airport just outside Venice in the sunshine.

We caught the airport bus to Mestre where we where staying for €8 return fare which took about 15 minutes. Mestre is the industrial centre just on the other side of Venice and at a fraction of the cost to stay actually in Venice itself, it was the perfect location.

Day Trip To Dublin

On Saturday myself along with an amazing group of ladies that I have been fortunate enough  to have met through the squares of Instagram headed off for the day to Dublin.

We got the Goldliner Express bus down which only cost £17.00 for an open return as it suited better than the train for pick up and drop off locations. Some of the ladies got on in Belfast, Sprucefield and then a few of us got on in Banbridge so it was extremely convenient. We arrived into Dublin’s bus station just shy of 2 hours later after a quick stop at the airport.

Berlin

At the beginning of February  we spent a few days in Berlin child free thanks to my wonderful in-laws. It was a special christmas treat for us to get away and it was definitely much-needed. I would love to say it was very relaxing but it was go go go from the start but we didn’t mind as it was great to see the city in all its glory.

Viva Las Vegas

You cant turn on the TV or check the news without seeing the words ‘Las Vegas’ mentioned everywhere after the mass shooting at the weekend. Back in August Chris and I were very fortunate enough to be able to enjoy a little break here. It was my birthday present tied in with a thank you from Chris for all that I do for the girls and him, not that I need a thank you but who says no to Vegas?! Plus I think it was to earn some brownie points for the FIVE stag weekends he has been away on….I know I’m a good wife 🙂 Even with all the talk about the city both postive and negative its still one of the most favourite and memorable places I have ever been and I wanted to share our trip with everyone.

Holidays on the French Riviera

After much deliberation this year we finally decided on the South of France for our holidays. We started looking at different locations last year even before Zanna was born and we knew after last years holiday in Salou we didn’t want to do a package holiday. It just wasn’t for us this year. Maybe in a couple of years it will suit the girls better but at the minute Olivia just loves being outside running around so we knew we wanted a beach location and an apartment close at hand. That is exactly what we got when we booked Theoule Sur Mer.

April has been a pretty busy month for us so I thought I would do a little round up of what we have been up to; that and the fact ive become pretty useless at keeping the momentum of this blog going whilst on maternity turns out it’s not a 9 month holidays after all…just stating what every man thinks but rather quite a handful 🙂

Sister Time In London

Chris mentioned at the start of the year that he may have one, two, three perhaps five stag parties to go on this year what a struggle for him I know. I thought he can’t have all the fun so im going to arrange a trip of my very own and the one thing I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years is to visit my Sister in Law Stephanie in London. I’ve mentioned before that she has lived in London for 3 years and we just don’t see as much of her as we would like so thank goodness for Facetime and the fact that Chris can parent the life out of our girls he really is so hands on I knew he would survive 3 days no problem …plus Granny lives around the corner 🙂
