Our Travel Hopes and Plans for 2021


With the country moving into the next stage out of lockdown this week, I thought it would be a good time to start discussing our travel plans for the rest of the year. We were lucky enough to get away on a couple of mini UK breaks last year - we spent a few days in Weymouth over the summer, and then a long weekend in Norfolk during the October half term. But the desire to jump on a plane is still incredibly strong! Of course I am thinking logically though, as I know that travelling abroad may still be a little tricky for months to come. But that doesn't stop me from dreaming does it?

UK Break

The first holiday we're hoping goes ahead this year is our postponed trip to Hampshire with Jack's parents. We've booked a holiday park for the week after schools break up, so as long as the roadmap out of lockdown continues we should be ok! We'll probably keep the week as relaxed and unplanned as possible, just enjoying being by the sea and eating all the ice creams, and will most likely visit a few local National Trusts too. The littles have already requested a day at Paulton's Park while we're in the area which I must admit I'm rather excited about too.

Theme Park Mini Break

Last year we became Merlin Annual Passholders, and we've wanted to make use of the theme park resort hotel discounts ever since. We've already booked trips twice (and had them cancelled both times due to Covid), so fingers crossed we can actually make it to Alton Towers - the last time we visited was back in 2019 so the littles will be able to go on so much more this time! We've booked the weekend away as a final summer treat for us all, which should be made extra exciting by the fact we're now actually working with MAP too as one of their MAP collaborators. 

A Hopeful Trip Abroad

We've set aside some time in October where we could potentially go on a last minute holiday, and although we're putting off booking anything right now, the urge to just go for it is unreal! Jack and I have both looked into a few different destinations that are still going to be decent weather-wise that time of year. Cyprus is warm most of the year-round and wouldn't be too far to fly with the littles either, although Parker is constantly talking about heading back to Ibiza so that could be a top contender too. And you know me, I'm forever dreaming of a Disneyland Paris trip so that's probably top of my list of destinations!
