Don’t get me wrong, I love teaching, my school, the children and the staff, HOWEVER, one of my huge frustrations with being a teacher is travelling in the school holidays! We love to travel but the costs of family holidays are sometimes double in the school holidays and just not affordable, despite working full time! Not only that, but it seems so unfair to have to pay double for the same thing!
I know I’m not alone here, whether you are a teacher or a parent, we all have the same dilemma. I have signed numerous petitions to try and support the case to reduce the costs of travelling in the school holidays, but it doesn’t seem like it is something the government are willing to support. Instead they think fining parents will be the answer! Anyway, this isn’t meant to be a rant, I’m hoping to find a way to start to overcome this barrier, so that we can continue to create lots of new memories and provide different experiences for our little boy!
So, a slight change of direction for my blog. It is now my mission to find a way to travel as a family, more often, in the UK and abroad, without getting ripped off! I aim to find bargain deals, for quality, family holidays that don’t break the bank and that are not ridiculously overpriced compared to term time holidays.
Stay tuned and follow my blog to keep up to date with deals and ideas!
