Family holidays are also a great way to destress and unwind from the pressures of daily life. Taking time away from work and daily routines can help us to relax and recharge. Whether it’s lounging on a beach, hiking in the mountains, or exploring a new city. Family holidays offer a chance to escape the stresses of everyday life and enjoy quality time together. It’s also important to spend time together away from screens. It’s easy to get caught up in social media, emails, and other distractions. Family holidays offer a chance to disconnect from technology and connect with each other, in real life!
Countdown is on!
So, our next family holiday is in just a couple of weeks. We are finally heading home to Wales to see our beautiful families and friends, followed by 4 weeks of exploring Europe. I will be taking a ridiculous number of photographs, eating too many carbs, adventuring and probably doing some risky moves. And I will be making a million memories.
This is probably the last big holiday we have as a family of 4. Our son is 17 soon. It’s quite disheartening when our children express a preference for spending time with their friends instead of with us, but it’s natural. We’ve all been there. I always try to find a balance between giving him his independence and keeping him close to me. Maybe there is a compromise? He knows the importance of spending time together as a family, and spending time with his little sister who idolises him. While it may not seem like a priority now for a 17-year-old, I’m hoping he will appreciate these memories later in life.
