Ok, strictly speaking, not Havana, but Cuba. Cuba was the last place mr D and I travelled to, before we had little b. I miss proper holidays! We used to travel so much. Asia, America. I must admit, I really do miss it. I miss flying, I miss the planning and organisation involved. I miss just heading off for three weeks without a care in the world. We did try a holiday holiday. You know, properly abroad and all. It was alright. If you call three trips to the doctor and a course of antibiotics alright :-/ another post, another time ey.
Living it up at Haven!
Our trips now are either to Haven or Centre Parcs. If I am being honest, pre-b, I would never have considered either. Centre Parcs just seemed too “sporty” for me, and Haven, well a bit..urgh, I just had visions of stag and hen parties and billions of rowdy kids. Anyways…..so we have done both, a few times now and dare I say, I was pleasantly surprised. The last “mobile home” type holiday I’d ever been on was a disaster. We were staying in this six berth mobile home (with the in-laws) and mr d and I had the smallest room. It was so small that the condensation ran down the walls, soaking us both. It was just gross.
This time though we upgraded. Yep, a posh caravan. Central heating, double glazed. We went all out. And it was fab! I think because I was expecting it to be horrific, it turned out brilliant. The caravan was cosy and if anything, too warm. The site was great, the pool super clean, a load of stuff for b to do and enjoy. It was perfect.
Here are some photos from our last Haven trip at Devon Cliffs. We had a super time. Mr d and I particularly love the clifftop restaurant and bar. It’s perfect for watching the sun go down with a glass of vino, while little man enjoys watching the waves and anything else that catches his eye.
After holidaying at a few different Haven parks, I wrote a post on why we like Haven.
Do you miss “adult” holidays? Have you swapped luxury all-incs for Haven caravans? Or perhaps you’re one of these who just carry on! Share with me your toddler experiences in the comments 🙂
