a strong desire to travel.
“a man consumed by wanderlust”
Like most people we like to go on holiday. Before we had Clementine we have been on holiday to Zante, Crete, Paris, Barcelona and Jesse has been to San Francisco quite a bit although that was mainly for one of his previous jobs. Recently I received some money (not a lot but enough) that I wasn’t expecting, I immediately began dreaming of blue sea, sandy beaches and sun. In my head I knew that we should be sensible with it, either putting it into savings or using it to improve certain areas of the flat but after talking about it we decided that going on our first holiday abroad as a family would be nice.
I remember going on holiday a lot when I was younger, my family loved going to Greece. We went to a lot of the greek islands, Crete being a favourite. I used to love swimming and making new friends. Obviously Clementine won’t remember this holiday, but we still want to go somewhere that she can enjoy. I got straight on to pinterest and made a wanderlust board.
Is anyone else as obsessed with pinterest as I am? I love it. If you are then please leave your link in the comments and I’ll go and check out your boards.
We both decided on somewhere not too far as this being Clem’s first time on a plane, we have no idea how she is going to cope. Did we want to go self catering, all-inclusive or half board?Go with a tour operator or on our own? So many decisions to make! After looking around on various sites, we decided on Mallorca, flying time is about 2hrs 20 minutes so not super long. We also picked flights at a time when she usually has a nap. We’ve picked a great looking hotel with Thomson, it’s got lots of swimming pools, including a kids splash area, there’s even a crèche and kids club if we wanted to have a few hours to ourselves. The beach is also close by, and the area we’ve picked looks nice and family friendly. We aren’t going until the end of August/beginning of September but I’m already super excited about it! Bring on the beach and sun!
