During our first visit together to Disneyland Paris, we decided to book through Magic Breaks as the website offered the best prices at the time of booking. After some deliberation we decided to stay at the Newport Bay Club hotel. There are many hotel choices available to you when staying close to the parks, so have a look at all of them and decide what’s best for you. They do vary in offerings and prices fairly significantly, so do some proper research before you pick one.

We did 12 rides on day 1, 17 on day 2 and 15 on day 3; and we will be telling you how we did all of this below. If you want to watch what we did a short video is here!

We always like to go somewhere new, have a little adventure and see what we can find in the UK. This week we asked Twitter where we should go and @BritVoyage (her blog is here) suggested the Forest of Bowland. I didn’t realise we had been there before, but only a small part of it, so I had a little look online at what is there and well, this is what we did…

No matter where we go whether thats a; day trip, holiday, staycation, road trip, anywhere, we have 10 things that we ALWAYS carry with us. Now this isn’t an exhaustive list, it also isn’t the only things we carry (some things are day/holiday dependant), but it is a list of our personal essentials. The reason for this list is a simple ‘what do you not like to leave the house without?’ Feel free to answer that question in the comments. 🙂

My ‘must haves’ wherever I go.
