Living away from our home town is both a blessing and a curse. We are in a beautiful city, my husband has the perfect job and the kids are surrounded by opportunity. However, sometimes it gets a little lonely and seeing family has become really hard. The weekends are just 2 days and often they are full with all the other adult tasks we need to do and traveling home over the past 4 years has gotten less and less.
Other family members kids are at school now, and although our girls are home educated, it means that really we need to stick to half term or weekends to actually see them. The solution around this for us is always a group family holiday. In April we headed off as a group of 15 to Butlins and in September we are heading off to Disneyland Paris as a group of 10.
There is something so magical about going on holiday as a group. The excitement is far greater and knowing the kids have someone to play with (or we have another adult to watch them if me and hubby want a night alone) is perfect. But more than that, it’s amazing to have real quality time with family, we can all relax, laugh and just really enjoy being together as a family.
We’ve visited many places together as a large family since the kids were born, but somewhere we would love to try is Galle in Sri Lanka. If you’ve ever looked at pictures of Galle, you would know it is absolutely breath taking! Blue skies, aqua seas and palm trees all make for a perfect view. Galle is brimming with attractions and it’s recently restored architecture makes it the perfect place to get out and explore.
The issue when traveling together is usually accommodation. Finding something that will fit us all but also allow us to have our own space. We want a pool for the kids, places to relax for the adults and the ability to both cook our own meals and go out and explore. Asking for a miracle? Actually no, we’re not!
