Our family has a keen interest in Roman history and our eldest son is actually in the middle of an 8 week school homework project where he is creating a Roman comic telling the story of how Rome was founded and has created his own Roman blog. As we live in Northumberland we are very lucky that we are close to Hadrian's wall and have spent many an afternoon here exploring forts, climbing the wall and discovering history. We are keen to learn more and I can't help but think how fantastic it would be to take my children to Rome and let them see the Coliseum, Pantheon and all of the places they have read about on the internet for themselves.
MarrakechBefore I travelled to Marrakech with my husband I would definitely not have considered it as somewhere to take our children but I have definitely made a complete U-turn. I would love for them to experience the magic of Jemaa el Fna for themselves. Where else can you drink freshly squeezed orange juice, sample a huge array of street food, watch street performers and magicians and become entranced with snake charmers and storytellers? It certainly beats a night at a mini disco that would form part of a more traditional family holiday.
Camper Van trip around CornwallAs a family we love glamping. Nothing beats the freedom that staying outdoors gives you and it is the perfect way to get away from it all. I have a little dream that one day we will hire a VW camper van and go off on an adventure around Cornwall. Just driving wherever the day takes us, stopping off at beaches along the way before finding a farm or campsite to park up for the night. I would just love the freedom the be able to do this and think it must be the ultimate way to travel. Cornwall is a much-loved destination of mine as we used to spend our Summer there as a child. I would really like to return with my own children and discover hidden coves, eat cream teas and navigate the winding country lanes for myself. I am really determined to tick this from our bucket list soon! I love this photo of Jack enjoying al-fresco breakfast on a glamping trip last year and imagine this would be what every morning would be like if we were to stay in a camper van.
