Have you ever spend New Year’s Eve in another country? Would you consider doing it? In 2009, when my eldest daughter was only 6 months old, we did just that. We went to Malta for a few days and had a great time. It was still warm and sunny and Malta is absolutely, stunningly beautiful, and full of history.
We spent New Year’s Eve in our hotel room, looking at the fireworks, but not being able to go out so late at night because our baby was sleeping and the last thing we wanted to do was to wake her up. We watched the fireworks from our windows.
The next day we packed up and went back home. So was our New Year’s Eve. We were fine with that, but I can’t help but thing: wouldn’t it be great to actually have a big New Year celebration, together with your family?
I think that for many busy parents, a fully organized New Year celebration can be a great option: everything is included, and you can just relax and have the celebration of your dreams! Enter Butlins, a UK-based company that aims to delight! Search for New Year breaks UK to find out more
Have you thought of the UK as your New Year destination? We visited the UK a few years ago and it was a great vacation: we went to Portsmouth and later London. We had a great time, visiting the city, and relaxing. And the weather was much better than we expected!
I was three months pregnant with my second child. It was a perfect time for traveling, since my morning sickness has passed and my belly wasn’t showing yet so I could wear my normal clothes and had tons of energy for sightseeing and traveling. We took the train to the Isle of Wight (which is beautiful!), we saw the cathedral in Salisbury and walked around a lot. When then took the train to London and were able to see, among others, the British Museum, the Modern Tate Museum, Natural History Museum and Regent’s Park.
Great Britain is always a great travel destination, but I am sure it can be magical on New Year, and Butlins’ offer for this occasion looks amazing: fireworks, special shows, a party and more!
