Holiday Fever

Standard

Yes I have holiday fever at the moment, even though the weather is some what skeptical. I have been searching holidays in the last week as I am gasping to go on another cruise some where.

If you think cruises are for those who are passed their expiry date, then you are wrong. Cruises are brilliant for everyone, and I personally love them, that every time I think of Southampton, I think of the Quays.

I am soon to be off to Bournemouth with my son and my husband and I can already smell the sandy beach. I have decided I am going to be clearing out my suitcase that is stuck in my son’s wardrobe at the moment, which is loaded with Henry’s old baby clothes, and get started on the packing for our little break away.

I have even decided already, as my husband has already warned me not to take a lot,  on what I am going to be packing away with me. No it does not include the kitchen sink.

 

 

We aren’t driving there, but have already booked our train tickets. I would always suggest if you are booking and use the trains a lot to invest in a railcard, we haven’t this time, as we tend to drive most places, and I can always use my Oyster card now, as I tend to most of the time travel by train to London.

Railcards are only £30 or so and saved me a lot of money when I used to travel to London to the south coast a lot. Check out link below:

If you want to save more money, when eating out on holiday, why not invest in getting a Gourmet Society card, Kidspass or a Tastecard.

There are so many ways you can save money, you just have to shop around.

So Bournemouth here we come, so looking forward to the Sandy beach.

Many thanks for reading,
