Keeping it simple for a holiday with toddlers

I have an admiration for parents who attempt to carry on with adventurous holidays after the children have arrived. They’re the sort who can be seen backpacking around South East Asia with four children, or climbing up Snowdonia with a rucksack on their back and a baby on their front.

We prefer to keep it simple and believe there is a much greater chance of a relaxing holiday in the UK and in a holiday park.

Hotels, spa breaks, quirky B&Bs and camping all have their time in life but for us, that time is definitely not whilst travelling with toddlers and babies.

Caravan holiday parks offer space to run around, onsite facilities and they are often in prime locations near to child-friendly beaches. It also doesn’t matter if you end up eating breakfast at 6am and tea at 4.30pm, which most hotels wouldn’t be keen to accommodate.

Broadly speaking, you can split holiday parks into three categories.

The first type are those big holiday parks which are part of national chains. They are busy and overflowing with activities onsite, so you could spend the whole week without travelling outside the front gate (if you want to). Most have indoor swimming pools with slides and flumes, as well as entertainment for the children and bingo for the grown ups.

The second type is the much quieter holiday park which is independently owned. Facilities are often limited to a big field and a playground, but they tend to occupy prime locations and make a great (and cheap) base for exploring a popular area. If you are thinking about a self-catering cottage, these make a great alternative as they offer more green space to run around.

The third type of holiday park are at the posher end the scale. Usually they avoid calling themselves a holiday park at all and prefer something like ‘country club’ ‘lakeside lodges’ or ‘holiday village’. You’ll obviously pay more, but you won’t be sleeping in a caravan, which is a plus point if your holiday coincides with a hurricane.

To get the best value, travel in a large group. A four berth caravan often costs the same as a six berth one, so bring the grandparents along and you’ll only be paying a few pounds per person, per night

During the school summer holidays you can expect to pay about £500 – £1000 for a week in a caravan (or more for a fancy one). During the off season, you’ll see deals under £200 which is a bargain once you’ve split it between six people.

For starters, here are guides to Isle of Wight holiday parks and Cornwall holiday parks

Five Ways to Deck Out Your RV

Are you the proud owner of an RV? Are you in the process of planning your next RV adventure but your vehicle has been a little less than comfortable as of late? It could be that your RV is in need of a little updating and tweaking. Even if it’s still relatively new, there are still things you can do to deck it out, improve the comfort, add to the bells and whistles, and make the journey that much more memorable.

Update the Furniture

One of the most popular solutions for decking out your RV is to update the furniture. Just like in your home, the furniture in your RV takes a beating and over time it begins to show wear and tear. This instantly ages the space and may even affect the comfort level and functionality of the furniture itself. A place such as Restore RV is able to provide you with plenty of options that are specifically meant for RV’s, so you know that they will fit perfectly.

Change the Lighting

Lighting is another feature that can sometimes do with a little updating. Did you know that you can purchase all kinds of LED light fixtures for the interior and exterior of your RV? Not only will it light things up, but it also creates a more modern look.

When shopping for LED lighting, the one thing you want to keep in mind is the brightness of them. You want to be careful you don’t get something that is too bright, especially if it’s meant to be task lighting (a reading light etc.).

Do Away with Disposable Dishes

Your RV is supposed to be your home away from home, so if you aren’t treating it that way it just won’t feel right. Instead of using disposable dishes and cutlery, it’s best to use the real deal. You don’t have to spend a fortune, just look for something simple and functional.

Add Décor Pieces

Just because your RV is a vehicle doesn’t mean it can’t have its own décor and design sense. Let your personality show by adding décor pieces in the space. This could include artwork, lamps, cozy throw blankets, a bookshelf, etc. Some people even install electric space heaters that are meant to look like a small fireplace.

Use Plush Comfortable Linens

One of the best ways to ensure a good night’s sleep is to have comfortable linens on your bed. The same can be said for your RV. Instead of the mish-mash of unwanted linens from the house, go out and buy something specific that you like and that you know would be comfortable. It can also act as décor in the RV.

A True Home Away from Home

By taking the time and effort to make your RV more comfortable, modern, and functional you will in fact be creating a true home away from home. For people planning on taking long road trips, you’ll be glad you made the effort.

6 Tips To Stay Healthy For The Frequent Traveller

Are you constantly travelling due to work or personal matters? Then you’re probably very familiar with the line “I really want a detox after this!” It’s so easy to forget about what not to eat when you’re in a foreign country, trying to experience their culture and cuisine.

When you’ve been travelling for quite some time, it’s really easy to just buy food anywhere to save money and time, without actually thinking what’s in it or is the food good for your health.

Here are some tips for every wanderlust travellers and on-a-budget jetsetters out there who wants to stay fit without getting off their itineraries.

Tip#1: Bring A Water Bottle

A reusable water bottle will be useful while travelling. Before you leave the house, make sure to pack a sturdy water bottle that can be refilled right away. Water keeps your skin looking supple and fresh. It also keeps your body entirely hydrated. This is very important if you are travelling to a tropical country where the sun seems like it never sets.

Avoid alcoholic beverages like wine. Some planes offer it to their passengers, and you can so easily get tempted in indulging on a small glass, but alcohol is a diuretic drink and it defeats the purpose of you drinking water. If you decide to drink a glass, make sure to hydrate yourself again every time you go to the bathroom.

Tip#2: Adopt An Exercise Routine For Travellers

The best part about travelling is the exercise you get from all the walking. But if your itinerary doesn’t involve theme parks, or outdoorsy activities, try to do some exercises in the hotel. Most hotels have their own gym for you to do some workout.

But if you are staying in a hostel, or a Bed in Breakfast, you will most likely not find any gym or pool. What you can do is to keep exercise videos saved in your laptop, phones, or tablets. Home exercise videos are best to carry when you are constantly travelling. They take less than an hour and you can do them in the comfort of your own bedroom.

Tip#3: Commit To At Least One Healthy Meal Per Day

We admit that we tend to try every food our eyes see when we go to foreign places. And it’s completely okay to experience what these amazing places can offer. But eating heavy meals daily can be disastrous on the body.

Going to local markets will also offer you their exotic fruits and vegetables. They usually have home-cooked meals prepared and sold in little food shops.

Tip#4: Carry Easy and On-The-Go Medicines

Make sure to carry a small pouch full of medicines that can counter any unexpected issues. The list is long and it usually starts with allergies. Antihistamines can be carried around for quick relief. This will also help any inflammation at bay.

Another concern would be the “aches”. It includes stomach ache, headache, toothache, back pain and joint pain. Relief is difficult if you’re not prepared. So, make sure to carry with you a good pain reliever, one that you find effective for your body and joints if you walk a lot. Taking the best quality turmeric pills is a good and healthy choice.

Tip#5: Keep Snacks Healthy and Handy

Before you embark on your next travel, make sure to stock up on some healthy snacks. Travelling can take too long and we’re trying to avoid the feeling of hunger that usually gets us grumpy and all worked up.

It’s crucial for you to keep these snacks healthy so that you don’t pack up the pounds later on. By preparing small bags of nuts, biscuits, or fruit cups, you avoid yourself from buying unhealthy snacks like chips and chocolate bars.

Tip#6: Stick To Your Daily Routine

The healthiest thing you can do for your body and sanity is to stick to your daily routine. This means you need to take your vitamins, workout, and eat right. If you follow a nightly skincare routine, don’t forget to do that too.

Transferring your vitamins, medications and other beauty products to travel-sized containers will help you save space and money. Try to travel as light as possible so as not to add any stress on your body. Carrying heavy loads might be a good exercise, but doing it for long hours will take out the fun of travelling.
