Our 2014 getaway

Well…
to be honest I am planning a holiday hubbie is still not playing ball! But perhaps if I make enough fuss I will get
my own way, although if I find a reasonably priced holiday he may come round
quicker to my way of thinking (I can live in hope!).

I
do begrudgingly see why he is unenthusiastic to spend on holidays after all we
are buying a house, which is one big bill after another (yesterday we blew £600
on the survey cringe!).

So
I am going to tailor the next holiday around things he likes to try and sway
him. I know in the New Year he said he
wanted to get fitter. I also realise
that holidays with the boys are not always particularly relaxing as they are so
full of beans, mini Duracell bunnies with unlimited energy! So I can see why he is less inclined to head
to a theme park again where they will charge about from one ride to another,
chomping down on fizzy drinks and ice creams, whilst we try and keep up!

I
have an idea! I was thinking of having
a look at the cycling holidays
from Inntravel, they have a section on family cycling holidays that
looks quite interesting. I like the
thought of cycling from one hotel to the next. 
Imagine how tired out the boys will be, they will arrive at the next
hotel and want a jolly good rest. It
might be just the thing to tire them out!

Plus hubbie will be
as fit as a fiddle if he has to get on a bike and cycle to attractions and his
next overnight stop! If I pitch it
right I just might get my own way. 
Thankfully for us though the holiday is self-guided, I would not like to
think we had to keep pace with the biking pro’s, our family enjoys a decent
bike ride, but we tend to do it slowly, soaking up the atmosphere and coaxing
on our little legged cyclists to keep going! 
I remember one bike ride where poor hubbie
ended up carrying the boys bikes
but I am hoping we have progressed from
that point now they are a little older!
