Adventuring with Rishi

My husband and I are lucky enough to have done some travelling and we have had so many memorable and amazing experiences to date. I am keen that Rishi can join in our adventures and we can bring him on our holidays. For someone so little, he’s already travelled halfway across the world and stayed…

Staycation: the new normal?

Our next trip as a family was a staycation…something which my husband seems to be a fan for the foreseeable future. He organised this weekend and I have to say, hats off to him, he seemed to think of everything! Krishna arranged a surprise weekend for us all to go stay at Cliveden House. Some…

Managing Maui with a baby…

Our next stop on our adventure was Maui. Prior to the trip I was the one that had researched Maui and so I probably was looking forward to it more than Kauai. But then someone we met on our trip said that Maui is more developed and quite touristy.  This isn’t my thing at all!…

My thoughts on shared parental leave…

We’re currently over half-way through our trip on what is a honeymoon of a lifetime. Visiting two spots in California and two Hawaiian islands and lots in between. We were planning our wedding when we found out we were pregnant with Rishi and we were over the moon. I had been wanting a baby for…

Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

Ten things I’ve learnt from being on holiday with Baby Rishi…

1. Apply lotion: I’m fanatical about Rishi and the sun, meaning I’m all about sun suits, sun shades and factor 50. However I rarely remember to apply lotion to myself! So my advice is: buy some of that “apply once a day” stuff and go from there or accept that you’ll get sun burnt! 2….

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside….

We have just survived our first little trip away. We opted for a staycation with my parents in Bexhill-on-sea (near Hastings) last weekend. Sunday was definitely my favourite day: the weather was great, we played adventure golf, we shopped, and we even squeezed in a mini-date – stealing an hour for just the two of…
