Our family has made an impromptu move from Scotland back to our nearly two year home on the beautiful island of Phuket. We’re enjoying the sun and I have missed the spicy food like crazy. Billy is filling up on coconuts all day long to the point where he may actually have an addiction ( albeit a healthy one).
We’ve moved twice in the last two years. We had no idea that we would need to leave the UK in order to figure out Billy’s visa situation. Nonetheless here we are and I must say, I am hoping to eventually get a little one on one time with my husband at some point before we have our next baby. We have wanted to add another Bradley to our growing family for some time now, but Billy and I have had virtually no time together ever since Kaya was born. We’ve never had a babysitter,ever! And as much as I enjoy us being three peas in a pod, I hope that at some point in the near future he and I will have a little vacation to ourselves while grandma babysits our now 5 year old.
Recently I stumbled across a new travel site that we may use when we begin planning our one day trip. Happiness Included is a bright and cheerful site that helps families or couples plan their gettaway, whether it be short term or something lengthy. On the homepage, you select what type of trip you are looking for ( romantic gettaway or family travel) and you can sync it to your Facebook page to make the experience more personalized. It then takes you through a virtual reenactment of what your trip would be like, which I found to be quite cute. You can select ‘Island Hopping Adventure’ and it takes you to virtual paradise, which is a brilliant idea for people who have never been to say Thailand and want to get a little taster of what it will feel like to be here. It’s almost like a video game actually, for those of us with wanderlust! After the video ends, you have a chance to enter to win a holiday to Thailand, which I can tell you isn’t a bad idea!
I’m not sure when Billy and I will have time to plan a trip, but I’m glad I found this great resource and travel planner as it gives me an idea of what I’m looking for. Happiness Included is absolutely worth checking out if you have any travel planning to do or just want to take a moment and pretend you are here in Thailand.
