A family trip to the Seychelles…

I know I’m one lucky bunny at the moment as I have won quite a few things recently! (Well I always feel lucky to be honest because I have a lovely husband, son and a daughter on the way 😉 ). But this Christmas I won a dream holiday courtesy of Mums the World (check out their amazing travel blog here)!! Can you believe it!! 4 nights stay in a 5 star hotel in Seychelles!!!! Yep, its true, I did win that! 🙂

So I was a good wife and invited my husband (and of course little JV!) on our first family trip to the tropical Islands of Seychelles. JV went on his 13th flight (!!) – but this one was only 4,5 hours and we stayed in the same time zone, yay!! These things wouldn’t have bothered me so much one year ago but nowadays it is very much appreciated when we travel with little JV that we can keep the bedtime routine going a bit 😉 As usual JV was kidnapped by the lovely Emirates air-hostesses and the trip felt very short.

I know many will think that…

We were in…

Best family fun & food in Dubai – tourist in my own city

Living as an expat in a warm sunny paradise like Dubai means lots of outdoor time and lots of happy visitors! Of course we miss our family and friends all year around but when we are lucky enough to get visitors from home we get a full week of cosy quality time and holiday atmosphere. Last week I was so lucky to have my sister here with partner and my niece and nephew 6 and 3 years old. We had a crazy busy week and our small 2BR apt were full but it was also an amazing fun and exciting week!! Best of all were to see the kids enjoying…

I wish I knew then what I know now…

… what I learned by having a 5 months old baby;

  • It’s VERY tough to get back on with the exercise after having one year off! I didn’t do exercise in pregnancy and I think a 90-year-old is in better shape than I am right now!!!
  • It’s important you are able to get outside and do stuff with baby, not just sit indoor all day even its tempting (difficult in the 50 degree summer heat in the Dubai).
  • It gets easier…! First weeks are SO tough but it…
