Mark and I like to go away a few times a year (when we can) on European weekend breaks. However, having a baby due in the height of Summer can throw a spanner in the works in terms of travel plans.
This year will be slightly different – we have two weddings in May with hen and stag do’s that go a long with them in the months before. I didn’t want to go abroad past 30 weeks ideally due to comfort reasons so because of this our time frame was pretty slim.
An Italian Affair
After a few hours of research we decided on Sicily at the beginning of May for a week. We will be spending a few days exploring the town of Palermo before heading to Cefalu for the remaining week for a bit of R&R (with maybe a couple of day trips thrown in). Guys, the Air BnB we have booked in Palermo looks absolutely EPIC. A travel photographers dream and I can’t wait to show it to you.
An Island Wedding
Up next we are off to the Isle of Wight for a friend’s wedding. We have hired a gorgeous house staying with 4 other friends over a long weekend. I have only ever been to the Isle of Wight for the festival in 2006 so I am looking forward to getting out and exploring the island more.
A Dam Good Weekend
Last up, we are managing to squeeze in another weekend to Amsterdam in June. We have been before, however it rained the majority of the time we were there. June should hopefully be a better time of year and we are praying for good weather on this trip. We are booked into the Hoxton Hotel and I cannot wait. We already have a long list of restaurants we want to try and concept shops we want to shop in.
That’s all the travel we have planned for now. We were given some vouchers for Canopy & Stars for Christmas so it would be nice to go glamping for a few days nearer the end of the year but let’s see how we go with a newborn first!!
Where are you guys going this year? I am already dreaming about next year’s trips!
