As 2018 draws to a close (only 11 days left!) I’m already thinking ahead to 2019 and as I’m not one to make lots of new year resolutions(for fear of not being able to stick to them) I have decided to focus all my attention on only one… Travel more as a family. Now this is definitely a resolution I can stick to!
My husband and I always loved travelling and pre children we did so quite often not only around Europe on smallish city breaks but also to some gorgeous and more exotic destinations like Malaysia and Singapore. Since having children though, our holidays have been resumed to visiting family which means we spend all our holiday time either in Portugal or the UK. This year I would like to change that. As much as we love our families I feel like we are missing out on some time just the four of us and we feel the children should be exposed to different cultures and environments which I feel is extremely important for children’s social and cultural development.
In 2019 I’m hoping to go on a couple of family holidays, starting with a wintery city break around February half term (I’m thinking somewhere in Italy, possibly Rome as I have never been myself) and a longer and more lavish Summer holiday once the kids break up from school (possibly Thailand or the Caribbean).
Up until now we have favoured self catering apartments/hotels because the kids were small and we didn’t want to have to deal with tantrums over dinner or be dependent on finding a good restaurant that offered both good food and was child friendly but now they are both older (4 and 6 years old) we feel that we are ready to try all-inclusive family holidays and believe they would be perfect for us all. Knowing that all our meals and drinks are catered for is a huge piece of mind not to talk about the cheeky cocktail and wine. It’s a holiday after all isn’t it?
To help with my search for the perfect all-inclusive hotels for our upcoming family holidays I have been using Loveholidays newest interactive all inclusive hotel finder which highlights the best all inclusive hotels for couples, families and adults only in the most popular destinations. Loveholidays identifies the top all-inclusive hotels based on both Trip Advisor reviews and the number of bookings to make sure you find the best all-inclusive hotels in your chosen destination. Now if this isn’t helpful I don’t know what is.
Where would you like to travel to in 2019? Let me know in the comments below.
